What is a cookie?
Cookies are unique to your account or your browser. There are different types of cookies, including first party cookies (which are served directly by us to your computer or device) and third party cookies (which are served by a third party on our behalf). Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g., interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the Site and also when it visits certain other websites. Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire.
What is a web beacon?
Cookies are not the only way to track users of a website. Miro may also use “web beacons” (sometimes called tracking pixels or gifs) to collect data regarding your use of the Site and to enable certain features of the Services. A web beacon is a small graphic file, sometimes only a pixel in size, embedded onto a page of our Site. Web beacons are used to identify each of our pages in order to be analyzed by our system tools. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Services from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party site, and to improve site performance. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Miro uses some cookies that are tied to your account and personal information to recognize your logins and the workspaces where you are logged in. Miro uses other cookies which are not tied to your account but are unique to carry out analytics, customization, and other similar tasks.
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit a Site or use our Services, remember your preferences, and provide a personalized experience that’s consistent with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with the Site faster and more secure.
Categories of Use. Description
Essential cookies. These cookies are needed to provide you with the Site and Services and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas. Without these cookies, we would not be able to provide you with the services that you have asked for. These include authentication cookies, which help us show you the right information and personalize your experience when you're signed in to our Services, and security cookies that enable and support our security features and help us detect malicious activity.
Performance cookies. These include cookies that can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. They can also help you fill out forms on our Sites more easily and provide you with features, insights, and customized content.
What cookies does Miro use?
You can request a list of the cookies that Miro uses by contacting Customer Support. Please be aware that the cookies we use may depend on the features you are using and the device, browser or operating system you are using. The number and names of cookies, pixels and other technologies may also change from time to time.
Some cookies are essential and we cannot provide our Site or Services to you without them, but there are others that can be turned off. Please be aware if you limit the ability of our Site and Services to set cookies, this may worsen your overall user experience and/or you may lose the ability to access certain services. It may also stop you from saving customized settings, like login information.
Most browsers give users the ability to manage cookies according to personal preferences. In some browsers you can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, meaning you can allow cookies only on sites that you trust.
Browser manufacturers usually provide help pages relating to cookie management. Click on the links below for more information on cookie management for the common browser manufacturers:
For other browsers, please consult the documentation that your browser manufacturer provides.
If you want to change your settings at a later time (for example, if you accept all cookies but later decide you do not want a certain type of cookie), then you will need to use your browser settings to remove any third party cookies dropped on your previous visit.
You can opt out of interest-based targeting provided by participating ad servers through the Digital Advertising Alliance (http://youradchoices.com). In addition, on your iPhone, iPad or Android, or other mobile device, you can change your device settings to control whether you have opted-in for interest-based ads.
Other third party cookies
In addition to managing cookies in your browser settings, you can also opt out of certain third party cookies. For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how users engage with our Services, compile reports and improve our Services. The reports disclose usage trends without identifying individual users. You can opt out of these cookies without affecting how you use our Services.
For more information on Google Analytics, see here. You can opt out of Google Analytics and customize the Google Display Network ads by visiting the Google Ads Settings page and installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on from each browser on each device.
