Cookies and Similar Technologies

Last updated December 27, 2023

This Cookie Policy explains how Lexion (“Lexion,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) uses cookies and other similar technologies to recognize when you visit our website at This Cookie Policy describes what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them. Capitalized terms used herein and not defined will have the meaning given to such terms in our Website Terms of Use or Privacy Policy.

What are Cookies?

Let’s start from the beginning for context. What are cookies? Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Lexion) are called “first-party cookies.” Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies.” Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g., advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites. 

Why does Lexion use Cookies and other Similar Technology? 

A lot of different reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience. Third parties serve cookies through our Website for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. This is described in more detail below. 

What types of Cookies are there? 

    These cookies are needed to help you access and move around our Websites. Without these cookies, our Websites would not work, and you would not be able to use some critical features.
    These cookies are used to remember the information you have entered or choices you make on the Websites. These preferences are remembered using persistent cookies so that the next time you visit our Websites you will not have to set them again.
    These cookies help us understand how our Websites are being used so that we make improvements. These cookies can provide us with anonymous information to help us understand which parts of our Websites interest our visitors and if they experience any errors. We use these cookies to test different designs and features for our Websites and also use them to help us monitor how our visitors reach our Websites.
    These third-party cookies ensure that advertisements shown to you on our Websites and other web sites are as relevant to you as possible. These third-party cookies record information about your use of advertisements to help us improve your experience. These cookies perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing.  
    These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and other Materials that you find on our Website through third-party social networking and other websites.  These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes.  

Third-Party Features and Widgets

Some pages of our Websites include third-party plugins or other features such as the G2, LinkedIn, or Facebook share button through a third-party social media or email service. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Websites, and set a cookie to enable the feature to function correctly. Your use or interaction with these plugins and features is governed by the privacy policy and terms of use of the third-party company providing it.

How can I control cookies on my browser? 

As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser to browser, you should visit your browser's help menu for more information. In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit: 

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons? 

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enables us to recognize when someone has visited our Website or opened an email including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning. 

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects? 

Websites may also use so-called "Flash Cookies" (also known as Local Shared Objects or "LSOs") to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention, and for other site operations. If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to "information" on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time). Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

Do you serve targeted advertising? 

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Website. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. They can accomplish this by using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details, or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons. Please therefore revisit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies. The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
