Livestream Cookie Policy

Last Updated: May 24, 2018

Livestream, LLC, a Vimeo operating business (“Livestream,” “we,” or “us”) uses cookies and similar tracking technologies on its websites (Livestream.com and related sites), Livestream-branded applications for connected devices (“apps”), and the Livestream embeddable video player. By using our websites, apps, or video player, you consent to the placement and use of cookies and similar technologies on your device. This Cookie Policy forms part of the Livestream Privacy Policy.

Cookie Basics:

A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your web browser that allows Livestream or a third party to recognize you using a unique identifier.

Who sets them: First-party cookies are set by Livestream. Third-party cookies are set by companies other than Livestream, such as analytics providers and advertisers.

What they do: “Essential” cookies enable services we offer. “Non-essential” cookies help us understand how our services are being used (i.e., analytics) and deliver advertisements. Some cookies may track you across multiple websites you visit (including ones not operated by us) to help deliver advertisements that may be relevant to you.

How long they last: Cookies may be either “session” or “persistent.” A session cookie expires (i.e., is deleted) when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains until it expires or you delete the cookies via your browser settings. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves and may vary in length, depending on the purpose of the cookie.

Cookies Found on Livestream Services:

We use all types of cookies in our web-based services.

Livestream websites: When you visit a Livestream website, Livestream and third parties will set cookies in your browser. Livestream sets essential cookies to enable certain features and remember your preferences. For example, cookies keep you logged in, allow you to purchase items, and maintain your volume settings. Third parties set cookies for both essential and non-essential purposes including analytics (e.g., Google Analytics) and advertising (e.g., Google DoubleClick for Publishers).

Livestream video player: Livestream’s embeddable video player uses first-party cookies that we consider essential to the video player experience. We use analytics cookies when displaying the player to persons outside the EU. We do not use non-essential third-party cookies when displaying the player to persons within the EU. Please note that a third-party website may place cookies of its own. We have no control over third-party websites or the cookies they set.

Changing Your Cookie Preferences:

You may limit the cookies set in your browser by taking the steps described below. Note that declining cookies may impact your ability to use our services.

Browser Settings: You may change your browser’s settings to delete cookies that have already been set and to reject new cookies. To learn more, visit the help pages of your browser:

You may also visit our sites in your browser’s “private” or “incognito” mode, in which case cookies will be set, but deleted when you close browser.

Opt-out (EU users): Users from the EU may opt out of non-essential cookies below. Upon opting out, we will, to the extent possible, delete any non-essential first party cookies in your browser and remember your cookie preference for your next visit. Please review your browser settings to remove third-party cookies.

Third party advertising opt-outs: Certain third parties provide ways to opt out of advertising cookies across multiple sites. You can learn more by visiting the sites of the Network Advertising Initiative (https://optout.networkadvertising.org) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (https://www.aboutads.info). In addition, there are third party plug-ins and apps that help manage cookies.

Google cookies: Google provides ways to manage or opt out certain of its advertising cookies (https://adssettings.google.com) and analytics cookies (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/). You may read Google’s Privacy Policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Similar Technologies:

We use technologies that resemble cookies to help track user activities and preferences. For example, we may use web beacons (tiny graphics with a unique identifier embedded on web pages or emails) to track your activities and communicate with cookies. You cannot opt out of web beacons used on webpages, but you can limit their use by opting out of the cookies they interact with. You can opt out of web beacons used in emails by setting your email client to render emails in text mode only.

Mobile Apps:

Our apps (e.g., for iOS, tvOS, Android, and Roku) do not use cookies, but may use tracking technologies to, for example, authenticate you as a registered user, allow you to use the app’s features, and help us understand how our apps are being used. You cannot opt out of these mobile tracking technologies, but you may delete your apps and use the web versions of our services instead.
