A "cookie" is a piece of data that a web browser creates when you visit a website. This data is information about how and when you use a site. It’s placed on your computer, smartphone, or tablet (“online device”) in the form of a small text file.
There are two types of cookies used by Tangerine:
These are temporary cookies that expire when you leave the site. Session cookies allow the website to recognize you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently.
In contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your online device between browsing sessions until expiry or deletion. They therefore enable the website to "recognize" you on your return, remember your preferences, and personalize services to you. This type of cookie is also used as part of how we authenticate you to help protect your banking from unauthorized individuals.
Pixel tags and web beacon technologies provide information about how you interact with our website, mobile application and emails. For example, pixels can be used to determine whether an email has been opened or forwarded and how much of it has been viewed. These technologies may communicate with servers to obtain images and other content and to relay information about the IP address being used to access our site and information about your browser. We may use the information we obtain through these technologies to serve you targeted ads under “What’s interest based advertising”.
