Cookie Policy

By using this website owned by and/or operated on behalf of TestMax, Inc. (the "Services") with your browser set to accept cookies, you consent to our use of cookies and other technologies to provide the Services to you as described in this notice and in our Privacy Statement. For more information about what cookies and pixel tags are, what they do, and how you can opt out of, manage, or delete them, please review this Cookie Policy.

What Are Cookies and Pixel Tags?

"Cookies" are small strings of text or computer code stored locally on your device that allow us and our service providers to identify your browser and/or device as you browse the Internet. Cookies can be placed, read, and/or written to by our Services, or other websites or services that recognize a particular cookie, which allows the website to "remember" or "recognize" a particular browser or device and, in some cases, store information about that browser or device.

Certain types of cookies or cookie-like functionality may be placed or activated through browser add-ons, including, but not limited to, Adobe Flash. While these cookies are stored differently, their functionality and purpose is generally similar to other cookies.

Cookies are often used in conjunction with "pixel tags" (also known as "web beacons" or "clear gifs"). Pixel tags are small images that we, our analytics providers, and other third parties can use to interact with cookies and other tracking technologies. For example, we use pixel tags to evaluate the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing campaigns by determining whether you open and interact with the content in our promotional emails.

How Long Are Cookies Stored On My System?
