Cookies are small text files that may be placed on your computer or other mobile or handheld device (e.g. smartphone or tablet) via your internet browser when you visit a website.
Cookies can be ‘Session Cookies’ or ‘Persistent Cookies’. Session Cookies allow a website to link a series of your actions during one browser session and will expire when you leave the website. Persistent Cookies are stored on your computer or device and can be used again each time you visit the website which created that particular Cookie. Persistent Cookies will expire on a given date or can be deleted manually.
USR uses three types of Cookies – ‘Strictly Necessary’ Cookies, ‘Performance’ Cookies and ‘Functionality’ Cookies. The type and purpose for which each of these Cookies is used is described below:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These Cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Website and use its features. They are usually set in response to you logging in, filling in forms or setting preferences.
These Cookies collect information about how visitors use a Website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These Cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these Cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
These Cookies allow the Website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These Cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching videos or commenting on a blog. The information these Cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other Websites.
USR has tried to cover all the Cookies that it or its technology partners use. Please note that there may be a short delay in updating this list. If you notice a discrepancy, please contact us.
