order to identify your Web browser and the activities of your computer on the Workshop Butler
platform and other websites. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make
their websites and services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Workshop Butler) are called “first-party cookies.”
Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies.”
We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for
technical reasons in order for our Websites and Platform to operate, and we refer to these
as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and
target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites and Platform.
Third parties serve cookies through our websites for advertising, analytics, and other purposes
such as performance and functionality. We describe this in more detail below.

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 “pixel tags” or “tracking
pixels”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that is embedded
in our Websites and in our emails or other communications that are sent through our Platform.
This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within
our website to another, to track access to the communications sent through our Platform,
to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed
on a third-party website, or to improve our Websites’ or Platform’ performance. In many instances,
these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies
will impair their functioning.
Local Shared Objects (also known as Flash cookies) and local storage in HTML5 may also be used
on our Websites to enhance your experience by, for example, storing your user preferences
and settings like volume/mute settings. Local Shared Objects are data files similar to browser
cookies, but can store more complex data than simple text. You can manage local shared objects
by following the instructions on Adobe’s help site
How often will we update this information?

we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. We encourage you to review
