SECTION 1 – WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are data files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your browsing device (such as a computer, tablet 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 recognition helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before.
SECTION 2 – WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR?
Cookies perform several functions, like helping us understand how the Site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.
SECTION 3 – WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES DO WE USE?
The type of cookies used on most websites can generally be put into one of six categories: (1) Strictly Necessary / Essential Cookies, (2) Analytical Performance Cookies , (3) Functionality Cookies, (4) Flash Cookies, (5) Tailored Content Cookies and (6) Targeting / Advertising Cookies. In order to provide you with the best browsing experience, Behemotor, LLC. uses all of these cookie categories on the Site. You can find out more about each cookie category in the sections below.
SECTION 4 – STRICTLY NECESSARY / ESSENTIAL COOKIES
These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around the Site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, some services you have asked for such as payment submission can’t be provided.
SECTION 5 – ANALYTICAL PERFORMANCE COOKIES
These cookies collect information about how you use the Site, for example, which pages you go to most often and if you get error messages from certain 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 Site works.
SECTION 6 - FUNCTIONALITY COOKIES
These cookies allow the Site to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you’re in). For instance, the Site uses functionality cookies to remember your language preference. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you’ve made to text size, font 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 blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
SECTION 7 - FLASH COOKIES
We may, in certain circumstances, use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content, such as video clips or animation. To improve your user experience, Local Shared Objects (commonly known as “Flash cookies”) are employed to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on your device, but they are managed through an interface different from the one provided by your web browser. This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies through your browser in the same way you would normally manage cookies. Instead, you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s website at http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html.
SECTION 8 – TAILORED CONTENT COOKIES
Tailored content cookies help the Site provide enhanced features and display content in a way that is relevant to you. These cookies help the Site determine what information to show you based on how you have used the Site previously. These cookies do not track your browsing activity on other websites.
SECTION 9 – TARGETING / ADVERTISING 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 that after you have been to the Site you may see some advertisements about our services elsewhere on the Internet.
SECTION 10 – FIRST-PARTY COOKIES
First party cookies are cookies that belong to us. We use these cookies to estimate the number of unique visitors, to improve our website, and to detect the most searched for words in search engines that lead to a webpage. These cookies are not used to target you with online marketing. We use these cookies to learn how our website is performing and make relevant improvements to improve your browsing experience.
SECTION 11 – THIRD-PARTY COOKIES
Third party cookies are cookies that another party places on your browsing device through our Site. We use Google Analytics to help measure how users interact with our website content. These cookies “remember” what our users have done on previous pages and how they’ve interacted with the website. For more information on Google Analytics, visit https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage . For instructions on how opt out of Google Analytics, see below.
SECTION 12 – SOCIAL AND CONTENT COOKIES
Social and Content cookies are placed by many social media plugins (for example the Facebook ’like’ button), and other tools meant to provide or improve the content on a website (for example services that allow the playing of video files, or that create comments sections). We integrate these modules to improve the experience of browsing and interacting with our website. Please note that some of these third-party services place cookies that are also used for things like behavioral advertising, analytics, and/or market research.

This list is not exhaustive of every cookie we use. As changes to our website occur frequently so do the cookies used. We will from time to time update this list as more information is compiled and becomes available.
SECTION 14 – 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.
SECTION 15 – WEB BEACONS
Whenever our email marketing campaigns are sent out, our email provider, AWeber Systems, Inc., adds a tiny invisible image to the body of your email. This is often called a “web beacon” or tracking pixel. Web beacons are small GIF image files which enable us to track your receipt of our marketing emails, how often you view our web pages, your location, your IP address and browser information. Web beacons are activated whenever you open a marketing email or access a page on our website which contains a web beacon. Web beacons transmit data when you view them but are not capable of accessing any other information on your computer. Web beacons are not stored on your hard drive unless you download a GIF image containing them.
Some, but not all, browsers enable you to restrict the use of web beacons by either preventing them from sending information back to their source (for example, when you choose browser settings that block cookies and trackers), or by not accessing the images containing them (for example, if you select a ‘do not display images (in emails)’ setting in your email server).
SECTION 16 – FACEBOOK PIXEL
We use a Facebook Pixel on our website. A Facebook pixel is a tracking code which allows us to track and monitor the success of marketing campaigns we enable on Facebook and to improve the effectiveness of those campaigns. Information such as the device you used to access our website and actions you took while on our website are recorded by the Facebook Pixel. We may also use Facebook Pixel to create retargeting campaigns, custom audiences and lookalike audiences for our advertisements on Facebook and on our website.
SECTION 17 – HOW TO CONTROL COOKIES
