VSpace Cookie Policy

Welcome to the web site (the “Site” or “Platform”) of VSpace, a division of VVN Group (Pty) Ltd. product (“VSpace”, “we”, “us” and/or “our”). This Site is operated by VSpace and has been created to provide information about our company and our software-as-a-service platform for hiring software development Companies and managing software development projects, mobile applications and related services (together with the Site, the “Services”) to our Service visitors (“you”, “your”). Your access to and use of the VSpace Platform is also governed by information, guidelines and policies made available on the Site, including but not limited to the VSpace Privacy Policy.

At VSpace, 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 VSpace product or service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference.

Does VSpace use cookies?

Yes. As described in our Privacy Policy , we use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses VSpace 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 VSpace features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to VSpace and our sites generally, 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 VSpace and help us serve relevant ads to you.

When does VSpace place cookies?

We use cookies on our sites (such as vspace.technology) and mobile applications. Any browser visiting this sites will receive cookies from us. We also place cookies in your browser when you visit non-VSpace sites that host our plugins (for example, VSpace’s “Share” button) or tags.

What types of cookies does VSpace 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 VSpace 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 VSpace when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). 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 VSpace, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with VSpace faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the VSpace sites, and bring customized features to you through VSpace plugins such as our “Share” button.

Categories of Use

  1. Authentication: If you’re signed in to VSpace, cookies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience.

  2. Security: We use cookies to enable and support our security features, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our Terms of Use Agreement.

  3. Preferences, features and services: Cookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. They can help you fill out forms on VSpace more easily. They also provide you with features, insights, and customized content in conjunction with our plugins. You can learn more about plugins in our Privacy Policy.

  4. Advertising: We may use cookies to show you relevant advertising both on and off the VSpace 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 VSpace, such as after you’ve visited a partner’s site or application.

  5. Performance, Analytics and Research: Cookies 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 VSpace 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, VSpace does not generally respond to “do not track” signals. VSpace takes privacy seriously, and will review this policy once standardized DNT technology is made available.

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 VSpace may also set third party cookies.

If you are logged in on vspace.technology, or any another Service that references this Cookie Policy or browsing a third party partner site of VSpace 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 as noted in our Privacy Policy. We also use aggregated data from third parties and data from your profile and VSpace activity.

If you are a VSpace member but logged out of your account on a browser, VSpace may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our services, which analytics we may share in aggregate form with our advertising customers.

Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:

What third-party cookies does VSpace use?

Our category list above mentions some of the third party cookies on our sites. Please note that the names of cookies, pixels and other technologies may change over time. Please also note that companies and other organizations that sponsor pages on VSpace may use cookies, pixels or other technologies on their VSpace pages to learn about your interest in them.

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.
