The table below summarises the different types of cookie we use on Verint Sites, together with their respective purpose and duration (i.e., how long each cookie will remain on your device).
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server, and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information, such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences for browsing that site.
Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.
First-party cookies are set by the website you are visiting, and they can only be read by that site.
Third-party cookies are set by a different organisation to the owner of the website you are visiting. For example, the website might use a third-party analytics company that sets their own cookie to perform this service (e.g., Google). The website you are visiting may also contain content embedded from a third-party site, and these sites may set their own cookies.
We, our third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies or our partners may also use "web beacons" or clear .gifs, or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on a web page to monitor the behaviour and collect data about the visitors viewing a web page. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that page.
Verint sites may also include elements that set cookies on behalf of a third party (e.g., a “like” button from Facebook or a “tweet” button from Twitter).
We also use the services of reputable third parties to provide us with data collection, reporting, advert response measurement and site analytics, as well as to assist with delivery of relevant marketing messages and advertisements. These third parties may view, edit or set their own cookies. We, our third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies and/or partners may also place web beacons for these third parties. The use of these technologies by these third parties is subject to their own privacy policies and is not covered by this privacy statement.
Session Cookies are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed.
This type of cookie is saved on your computer and is not deleted when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies are used where we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session. For example, we use this type of cookie to store your preferences so that they are remembered for the next visit. You can delete a persistent cookie by selecting the delete options in your browsers.
Many websites use Adobe Flash Player to deliver video and game content to their users. Adobe uses its own cookies, which are not manageable through your browser settings but are used by the Flash Player for similar purposes, such as storing preferences or tracking users.
Flash Cookies work in a different way to web browser cookies (the cookie types listed above are all set via your browser). Rather than having individual cookies for particular jobs, a website is restricted to storing all data in one cookie. You can delete a flash cookie by searching your Adobe Flash directory.
