Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer or mobile phone when you visit certain websites. Cookies store information on your computer or mobile device, which the user’s web browser then provides to SharpSpring automatically each time it interacts with the application. The purpose of cookies is to identify whether or not the user is a unique user of SharpSpring. SharpSpring uses two types of cookies: first-party cookies and third-party cookies.
SharpSpring itself uses first-party cookies. First-party cookies will either originate on or be sent to the website you are currently viewing. These cookies are commonly used to store information, such as your preferences when visiting that site. These cookies are normally unseen by the user and offer certain benefits.
The Google Analytics first-party cookie, for example, is used for the following purposes:
- To gather visitor and access information relevant to customizing SharpSpring to your interests
- To store your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you use SharpSpring

Third-Party Cookies and Advertising
Third-party cookies will either originate on or be sent to a website that is different from the one you are currently viewing. SharpSpring uses certain third-party cookies.
For example, the Google DoubleClick third-party cookie displays advertisements on web pages, and it lets advertisers determine how often and how long said advertisements are displayed.
