Cookie Policy

Effective June 10, 2021

At PairTime, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. This Cookie Policy applies to any PairTime product or service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference. We use cookies and local storage (collectively referred to in this policy as “cookies”) to collect and use data as part of our Services, as defined in our Privacy Policy (“Services”).

What technologies are used?


Type of technologyDescription
CookiesA cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables PairTime features and functionality. Any browser visiting our sites may receive cookies from us or cookies from third parties such as our payment provider Stripe.
We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie lasts beyond the current session and is used for many purposes, such as recognizing you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to PairTime and interact with our Services without signing in again. Since a persistent cookie stays in your browser, it will be read by PairTime when you return to one of our sites or visit a third party site that uses our Services. Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
Local storageLocal storage enables a website or application to store information locally on your device(s). Local storage may be used to improve the PairTime experience, for example, by enabling features, remembering your preferences and speeding up site functionality.

Our cookie tables list some of the cookies that are used by us and third parties as part of our Services. Please note that these tables may be updated from time to time to provide you with the latest information.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?

DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. As such, PairTime does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
