Cookies on Prezly Newsrooms

The different types of cookies we store and why

Prezly Newsrooms store cookies. In this article you can find a description of the different types of cookies we store and why.

We have three types of cookies:

  • Analytical cookies that store anonymous information about your browser (unique identifier) and where you come from. These cookies are used to identify recurring visitors and provide reports on traffic sources.
  • Personal cookies that contain a unique user id for your session. The user id is set by injecting a unique identifier in every Prezly email campaign and passed on when you click a link. These cookies are used only when we have consent to share personal data and are only shared with the integrations you have enabled on your newsroom
  • Third-party cookies are cookies set by third parties, such as hCaptcha (verify newsroom submission) or for other integrations you have enabled on your newsroom.

We do not ask visitor permission to store Analytical and 3rd party cookies as they do not contain any personally identifiable information as regulated under GDPR.

Instead, we ask every new visitor their explicit consent to 1) store personal cookies and 2) use these cookies to pass to the CRM and linked integrations.
