Cookie policy

At Postila, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies. This cookie policy applies to any Postila.ru service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference.

Does Postila use cookies?

Yes. As described in Section 1.6 of our Privacy Policy, we use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses Postila has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables Postila features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to Postila and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on Posila and help us serve relevant ads to you.

When does Postila place cookies?

We use cookies on our sites (such as postila.ru, postila.io, postila.co) and mobile and web applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us. We also place cookies in your browser when you visit non-Postila sites that host our plugins (for example, Postila “Post!” button) or tags.

What types of cookies does Postila use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Postila or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Postila when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our “Post!”  button). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

What are cookies used for?

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Postila, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with Postila faster and more secure. 


Categories of UseDescription
AuthenticationIf you’re signed in to Postila, cookies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience.
SecurityWe use cookies to enable and support our security features, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our User Agreement.
Preferences, features and servicesCookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. 
AdvertisingWe may use cookies to show you relevant advertising both on and off the Postila site. We may also use a cookie to learn whether someone who saw an ad later visited and took an action (e.g. downloaded a white paper or made a purchase) on the advertiser’s site. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie to determine whether we’ve shown an ad and how it performed, or provide us with information about how you interact with ads. We may also work with a partner to show you an ad on or off Postila, such as after you’ve visited a partner’s site or application.
Performance, Analytics and ResearchCookies help us learn how well our site and plugins perform in different locations. We also use cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including when you access Postila from other websites, applications, or devices such as your work computer or your mobile device.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?

DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, Postila does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by Postila may also set third party cookies.

If you are logged in on Postila or another Service that references this Cookie Policy or browsing a third party partner site of Postila and one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage (such as your browsing behavior) and log data (such as your IP address), will be associated by us with your account. 

What third-party cookies does Postila use?

Our cookie table lists some of the third party cookies on our sites. Please note that the names of cookies, pixels and other technologies may change over time. 

Controlling cookies

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.

What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?

 If you do not want to receive cookies, you can also change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. If you use Postila without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on the Postila website. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including Postila cookies. Please note that the Postila site will not work properly without cookies.
