At SPIN, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies. This cookie policy applies to any SPIN product or service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference.

Does SPIN use cookies?

Yes. We use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses SPIN has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables SPIN features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to SPIN and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on SPIN and help us serve relevant ads to you.

When does SPIN place cookies?

We use cookies on our sites (such as SPIN.com and slideshare.net) and mobile applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us. We also place cookies in your browser when you visit non-SPIN sites that host our plugins (for example, SPIN’s “Share” button) or tags.

What types of cookies does SPIN use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to SPIN or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by SPIN when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

What are cookies used for?

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit SPIN, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with SPIN faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the SPIN sites, and bring customized features to you through SPIN plugins such as our “Share” button.
