What Are Cookies?

Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your browsing device (such as a computer or smartphone) when you visit a website. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them — or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before.

What Are Cookies Used For?

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like helping us understand how the software is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure the accessibility options you see on a host website is more helpful and relevant to you.

What Types Of Cookies Does BCFCU Use?

The type of cookies used on most websites can generally be put into one of the following categories: Strictly Necessary, Performance, Functionality, Tailored Content and Targeting. In order to provide you with the best browsing experience, BCFCU may use any or all of these categories throughout the website. You can find out more about each cookie category in the sections below.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around third party software (ie: Userway) and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, some services you have asked for can’t be provided.

Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use the software, for example which accessibility features you enable most often and if you get error messages on certain host pages. These cookies don’t gather information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how the software works.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow the software to remember choices you make (such as which accessibility features your users have enabled on your site). For instance, the software uses functionality cookies to remember your accessibility preferences. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you’ve made to text size and other parts of pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you’ve asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a post. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Tailored Content Cookies

Tailored content cookies help the software provide enhanced features and display content in a way that is relevant to you. These cookies help the software determine what information to show you based on how you have used the software previously. These cookies do not track your browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organizations such as advertisers. This means after you have accessed the software you may see some advertisements about our services elsewhere on the Internet.

How Long Will Cookies Stay On My Browsing Device?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your browsing device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device until they expire or are deleted.

First And Third Party Cookies

First party cookies are cookies that belong to our software providers, while third party cookies are cookies that another party places on your browsing device through their software.
