Use of cookies and similar technologies

This notice describes how Grassroots Nutrition, our partners, and any third parties use cookies and similar technologies (such as pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs, JavaScript, and local storage).

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files—usually consisting of letters and numbers—placed on your computer, tablet, phone, or similar device, when you use that device to visit a web site. Cookies are widely used by website owners to make their websites operate, work more efficiently, and provide analytic information.

These are the different types of cookies we and our service providers may use on our sites:

  • Essential cookies. These cookies are required for the operation of our sites and enable you to move around the sites and use their features. Disabling these cookies will encumber the sites’ performance and may make the features and service unavailable.

  • Analytics and customization cookies. These cookies allow us to analyse activities on our sites and on other sites where we post content in order to improve and optimize the way our sites work. For example, we may use these types of cookies to ensure that visitors can easily find the information they are looking for on our websites. One way we do this is to recognize and count the number of visitors and see how they move around our website when they are using it. Analytics cookies also help us measure the performance of our advertising campaigns in order to help us improve our advertising campaigns and to optimize our sites’ content for those who engage with our advertising.

When we and our service providers do so, this also involves partners such as publishers, data management platforms, and demand side platforms that help to manage the data.

Who puts the cookies on my device?

Cookies may be placed on your device by Grassroots Nutrition as the site operator. These cookies are called “first party” cookies. Some cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than Threshold Training Network. These cookies are called “third party” cookies.
Third Party cookies may be used to allow us and third parties to know when you visit our sites, and to understand how you interact with e-mails, advertisements, or other content. Through cookies, aggregate and other information not identifying individual users (such as your operating system, browser version, and the URL you came from, including from e-mails and advertisements) may be obtained and used to enhance your experience and understand traffic patterns.

To the extent third party vendors are using cookies to perform these services for Grassroots Nutrition or others, Grassroots Nutrition does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information, and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

Ads may be delivered to you based on your online or mobile behaviour, your search activity, your responses to one of our advertisements or e-mails, the pages you visit, your general geographic location, or other information. These ads may appear on our sites or on third party web sites.

How do I manage cookies?

Most internet browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings (please note that if you use your browser settings to block all cookies you may not be able to access parts of our web site).


What about other tracking technologies?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. Grassroots Nutrition may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our web sites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
