Cookies

 

We use browser session cookies, which are temporary cookies that are erased from your device’s memory when you close your Internet browser or turn your computer off, and persistent cookies, which are stored on your device until they expire, unless you delete them before that time.  Browser cookies on our site are generally grouped into one of three categories:  (a) Required cookies which are necessary to enable the basic features of this site to function, such as allowing images to load; (b) Functional cookies allow us to analyze your use of the site to evaluate and improve our performance or to provide you with a better customer experience (eg., remembering log-in credentials where applicable); (c) Advertising cookies which are used to share data with advertisers so that the ads you see are more relevant to you, allow you to share certain pages with social networks, or allow you to post comments on our site, and (d) Performance and analytics cookies to enable us to analyze how visitors use the Dysgraphia Life website and to monitor performance.  

 

Videos and other features on our site may use “Flash” cookies to collect and store your preferences, such as volume.  Flash cookies are different from browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and way that data is stored.  Cookie management browser tools will not remove Flash cookies.  To learn how to manage privacy and storage setting for Flash cookies click here

 

The Dysgraphia Life website is hosted on the Wix.com platform and contains first-party and third-party cookies on our website. For more information about cookies included with every Wix.com platform, and for information on how Wix handles site visitors' data, please click on the Wix.com privacy policy here.

 

Except with respect to Flash cookies (as mentioned above), You can set your browser not to accept cookies, and the above website tells you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, many of our website features may not function without cookies.

 

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.  You may limit or block those cookies by managing the privacy settings in your browser or with the third party.

 

a) Google AdSense, Ads and Analytics

Third party vendors like Google use cookies that enable Google and its partners to serve ads to you based on your previous visits to this website and other websites. You may opt-out of the use of these personalized ads from Google by clicking the link to the Google Ads Settings page. Alternatively, you may opt out of some third-party vendors’ uses of cookies for personalized advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info.  For more information about Google services and how they may use your data, please visit the  the Google Privacy Policy.  Alternatively, you may opt out of some third-party vendors’ uses of cookies for personalized advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info.  Because those opt-out and preference control pages are specific to the individual browser used to visit it, and that website is not operated by Dysgraphia Life, we are unable to perform the opt-outs on your behalf.

 

b) Facebook Pixels

We may use “pixels” from Facebook Inc., (“Facebook”) on our website. With its help, we can keep track of what users do after they see or click on a Facebook advertisement. This enables us to monitor the effectiveness of Facebook ads for purposes of statistics and market research. Data collected in this way is anonymous to us, which means we cannot see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is saved and processed by Facebook. Facebook can connect this data with your Facebook account and use it for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Policy which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and outside of Facebook. A cookie can also be saved on your device for these purposes.
