What types of technologies does Sapphire Ventures use?

We may use any or all of the following “technologies” on our Website and in our emails:

Cookies: a cookie is a very small text file that may be placed on your browser or in the storage on your device. There are two types: “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are cookies that disappear from your device or browser when you close your browser. Persistent cookies stay on your device even after you close your browser.

Please note that both Sapphire Ventures and third-party service providers may set cookies on our Website – these ‘third-party cookies’ are set by domains other than those we control and may recognise your device across different websites.

Pixel tags:

A pixel tag is a single pixel, transparent GIF image with a unique identifier that can recognise certain types of data on your device. They are used to operate and improve the Websites and our email practices, including to help deliver cookies, count visits and understand usage and email campaign effectiveness.

For example, we may put pixel tags in our emails to understand how you interact with that email – for example, whether you opened the email, whether you forwarded it, whether you clicked on a link in the email that directed you to our Websites etc., – these pixels may collect the time, location and operating system of the device you use to read the email.

Other similar technologies:

We may also use other tracking technologies, such as mobile advertising IDs and tags, HTML5 local storage / local shared objects (which store relevant data locally on your device), for similar purposes as described in this Cookie Notice.

So, when we refer to cookies and “similar technologies” in this Cookie Notice, such reference includes reference to the pixel tags discussed above, HTML5 local storage / local shared objects and other equivalent tracking technologies.

For what reasons do we use cookies and similar technologies?

The purposes for which we use technologies may fall into one of the following categories:

  • Strictly necessary technologies: these technologies are essential in order to enable our Websites to provide the function you have requested, such as by helping to ensure that the content of a page loads quickly and effectively.
  • Functionality technologies: these technologies allow us to provide enhanced personalisation and functionality, such as tailoring content to you, remembering your choices and preferences on the Websites (e.g. language, text size, etc.) or remembering search parameters.
  • Analytics technologies: these technologies collect information on how users interact with our Websites and enable us to improve how it operates.
  • Targeting technologies: these technologies collect information about your browsing habits in order to provide advertising which is more relevant to you and your interests – for example, they remember the websites you have visited and share that information with other parties such as advertising technology service providers.
  • Social media technologies: these technologies are used when you share information using a social media sharing or “like” button on our Websites or social media platform. This information may be linked to advertising activities.

How can you manage your consent?
