Cookie Policy

Website Cookies Policy & Notice

Concordia Market website uses first party cookies or requests for analytical advertising purposes according to this policy. First party cookies refer to cookies that are set by our websites. We are the only ones with access to this information.

Cookies are not necessary to navigate any of Concordia Market’s sites (including branded, non-branded and corporate sites).

What are cookies and why we use them?

Cookies are files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit certain websites. For instance, cookies allow our websites to identify how you were referred to one of our sites (i.e. which search terms took you to our websites or did you type the URL directly) or show which pages of our websites you visited and for how long.

 While you are browsing one of our sites, we automatically log your IP address (a number assigned to your computer when you use the Internet) and your activity while using a site. We also collect information about your usage of our sites through cookies and similar technology. There are two types of cookies: (a) session cookies (non-persistent cookies) and (b) persistent cookies. Session cookies temporarily store non-personal identifiable information about your visit to our websites in your computer’s memory. The cookie is deleted as soon as you close your browser. Persistent or permanent cookies will uniquely identify your browser and will permanently save in your computer’s memory information requested by a website. With both cookies and transparent GIF files, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.

We also track the total number of visitors to our websites, the number of visitors to each page of our websites, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. On certain Concordia Market websites, we may also ask users that have opted to receive information to complete a survey. No personal identifiable information is gathered in any of these processes.

 Cookies allow us to bring you the content and features likely to be of greatest interest to you based on your previous activities on our sites. For Concordia Market sites that require passwords, you are giving us explicit permission to use a "persistent cookie,” which is a small data file that is generated when you enter your assigned user id and password and access a site. This file is saved in your computer’s memory, and enables your browser to access each page that is in the password-protected area.

 Pixels, or transparent GIF files, are used to help us manage our online advertising. For example, third party vendors, including Google, show Concordia Market ads on sites. These vendors also use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to Concordia Market websites.  We use other non-personal identifiable information, including information obtained through surveys, to improve our sites.
