Cookies are files that websites send to your computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings on your device. Our Sites use first-party cookies, which we place on your device through our Sites, and third-party cookies, which another party places on your device through our Sites, for several reasons, including:
    • To track user trends and patterns, which helps us better understand and improve areas of our Sites that our users find valuable;
    • To provide you with personalized content (e.g., your user preferences, your default language, device and browser information, so we can identify you and personalize the content you see); and
    • To provide social media features and to analyze our traffic, which we may share with our social media and analytics partners, as well as use to provide services better tailored to our visitors’ needs.
    • We use five types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, marketing cookies, and website analytics cookies.
    • Strictly necessary cookies. Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our Sites and use their features. These are temporary cookies that last only as long as your web browser is open, and are used for purposes such as enabling better navigation on our Sites. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears.
    • Performance cookies. Performance cookies are stored on your device for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to our Sites and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore made anonymous. These cookies are used to improve the performance of our Sites, and with it, the user experience.
    • Functional cookies. Functional cookies enable our Sites to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, language choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalized functions. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request, such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.
    • Marketing cookies. Global Strategies and third parties acting on our behalf (such as LinkedIn and YouTube) may collect information about your online activities over time and to provide you with advertising about products and services tailored to your interests.

The information obtained for this purpose (including your IP address and other information collected by automated means) may be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. To provide this service, Google Analytics may collect certain information about you from your computer, including through the use of cookies. Such information may include information regarding your visit (such as the pages you visit and the length of your visit), information about your device (such as your IP address), how you got to our Sites, and other information about you. You can learn more about Google Analytics and how it collects and processes data (including how to control the information sent to Google) by visiting www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You can opt-out of Google Analytics by using the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available here.
    • In conjunction with gathering information through cookies, our Sites may log information such as your device type, operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone in which your device is located. We also may record information such as the address of the web page that referred you to our Sites or characteristics the of the device you used to connect to our Sites. We may log information about your interaction with our Sites, such as which pages you visit. To control which web servers collect information by automated means, we may place tags on our web pages called “web beacons”, which are small files that link web pages to particular web servers and their cookies. We also may send instructions to your device using JavaScript or other computer languages to gather the sorts of information described above and other details about your interactions with our Sites.
    • Information We Receive from Other Sources. This is information we receive about you when we work with third parties (including, for example, third party intermediaries with whom we partner to provide you with services, sub-contractors in technical, analytics providers, and search information providers).

If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of our Sites may then be inaccessible or may not function properly.

If you wish to correct any information that you have provided to us directly or opt-out of any promotional or other e-mails from Global Strategies, please e-mail us at info@globalstrategies.org or info@noviguide.com.

Please also refer to the information in the Third Party Websites section below.

    We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.
