What is a Cookie?

Cookies are small text files created by the website visited that contain data. They are stored on the visitor’s computer to give the user access to various functions. Both session cookies and non-session cookies are used on Incodit.com (the “Site”). A session cookie is temporarily stored in the computer memory while the visitor is browsing the website. This cookie is erased when the user closes their web browser or after a certain time has passed (meaning that the session expires). A non-session cookie remains on the visitor’s computer until it is deleted.

Why do we use Cookies?

We use cookies to learn more about how visitors interact with our content and help us improve the experience when visiting our Site. We will not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about a visitor to respect our visitors’ privacy.

Site Functionality

Subscription Management

We use Hubspot to manage all subscriptions to our mailing lists and to manage the creation and sending of emails to subscribers of those lists. Hubspot uses a session cookie to track users through the Sign Up process when they submit information via our Subscription Sign Up form. Hubspot’s Privacy Policy .

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

User Accounts

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will set up several cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last two days, and screen options cookies last a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Cookies store information on how visitors use the share function – although not at an individual level – so that our Site can be improved. If you do not accept cookies, no information is stored.

Analytics and Performance

This Site uses Google Analytics, which uses cookies. At the aggregate level, cookies store information on how visitors use the Site, including the number of pages displayed, where the visitor comes from, and the number of visits, to improve the website and ensure a good user experience. If you do not accept cookies, no information is stored.


Third-Party companies provide advertising on our website, and they may set Third Party Cookies on your device. Some advertisers are direct clients and register with us to place banner ads on our site, while other ads are placed as part of the Advertisers’ affiliate programs and have been selected by Incodit for placement on our Site.

Other Third-Party Providers

For some of the functions within Incodit.com, we use third party providers, like for embedded videos from, or links to, YouTube. These videos or links (and any other content from third-party providers) may contain third-party cookies. Please consult the policies of these third-party websites for information regarding their use of cookies.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Where We Send Your Data

User comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service to help keep the site from being inundated with irrelevant or annoying posts. Other Third-Party cookies may also collect and store data, as noted above.

Your Data Rights

In an effort to comply with EU regulations, if you are an EU citizen – and because it’s the right thing to do even if you live elsewhere in the world – if you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we must keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

How to Reject Cookies?

Although no personally identifiable information is collected, you can always choose to reject or block the cookies set by Incodit.com by changing your browser settings – see the “Help function” within your browser for further details. Please note that most browsers automatically accept cookies, so if you do not wish cookies to be used, you may need to delete or block the cookies actively.
