IT People Corp. dba Chainyard  (the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) collects certain information about our website visitors (“you,” “customer,” or “your”) when you visit www.chainyard.com (the “Site”).

Cookies are small text files that are sent to a web browser and are stored on your terminal device when you access a website.  Cookies are used for different purposes (computer authentication, session monitoring, storage of information on specific configurations regarding users that access the server, storage of preferences, etc.).  This policy describes our use of cookies. 

The Company uses certain first-party cookies, which do not require your consent, commonly referred to as “strictly necessary cookies” to make sure our digital services work correctly and are meeting audience needs and interests.  The Company uses the following strictly necessary cookies:

  • session cookies: their use is strictly limited to the transmission of session identification data (random numbers generated by the server), which are necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the Site; they are not permanently stored on your device and disappear when the browser is closed.  In particular, the use of session cookies is aimed at the security and improvement of the service offered; and
  • technical cookies: necessary to keep track of the consent given by you.

Some third parties may also provide cookies or similar technologies on the Site.  These cookies are only used if you consent to their use.  You are free to withdraw such consent at any time.   Such cookies or similar technologies are not under our control, and are managed by the third parties, as indicated in the table below, and are divided into the following macro-categories:

  • marketing/advertising cookies: this category of cookies includes cookies used to provide advertising services within the Site.  Deactivation of such third party cookies does not affect the use of the Site; and
  • profiling cookies: these cookies are used to track your navigation on the web and to create profiles on your tastes, habits, choices, etc.  With these cookies, advertising messages can be transmitted to your terminal in line with the preferences already expressed by you when browsing online.  The use of these cookies and the performance of the processing operations connected to them require your prior consent, in accordance with the applicable regulations.  The deactivation of such third party cookies does not compromise the use of the Site.

Google Analytics

The Company may use Google Analytics to collect certain analytical information (including IP addresses) to help us better understand activity on the Site.  Google Analytics uses cookies to track you on the Site, to record multiple visits by you to the Site, and to record all the pages that you visit on the Site.  Google Analytics tracks your visits to the Site whenever you return.

The Company receives this data from Google in an aggregated, anonymous form that does not personally identify you.  The Company will not use Google Analytics to track, collect or upload any data that personally identifies you (such as a name, address, or billing information), or other data that can reasonably be linked to such information about you by Google.

The Company will not facilitate the merging of personally identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information that is collected through any Google product or feature unless you have specifically and affirmatively provided the Company with your consent to that merger of personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information.

The Company and other third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies together to inform, and optimize the Site based on your past visits to the Site.
