Cookies & Other Storage Technologies
Cookies are small pieces of text used to store information on web browsers. Cookies are used to store and receive identifiers and other information on computers, phones, and other devices. Other technologies, including data stored on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device, and other software, are used for similar purposes. In this policy, Facebook (“we”, “us”) refer to all of these technologies as “cookies.”
We use cookies if you have a Workplace account. This policy explains how we use cookies and the choices you have.
Why do we use cookies?
We use cookies to store and receive identifers and other information on computers, phones, and other devices. Cookies help us provide, protect, and improve the “Workplace Services” (which includes the Workplace websites, apps and related online services), such as by personalizing content and providing a safer experience. While the specific cookies that we use may change from time to time as we improve and update the Workplace Services, they generally fall into the below categories of use:
Type of CookiePurpose
Authentication
We use cookies to verify your account and determine when you’re logged in so we can make it easier for you to access the Workplace Services and show you the appropriate experience and features.
For example: We use cookies to keep you logged in as you navigate between Workplace pages. Cookies also help us remember your browser so you do not have to keep logging into Workplace.
Security, site and product integrity
We use cookies to help us keep your account, data and the Workplace Services safe and secure.
For example: Cookies can help us identify and impose additional security measures when someone may be attempting to access a Workplace account without authorization, for instance, by rapidly guessing different passwords. We also use cookies to store information that allows us to recover your account in the event you’ve forgotten your password or to require additional authentication if you tell us your account has been hacked.
We also use cookies to combat activity that violates our policies or otherwise degrades our ability to provide the Workplace Services.
For example: Cookies help us fight spam and phishing attacks by enabling us to identify computers that are used to create large numbers of fake Workplace accounts. We also use cookies to detect computers infected with malware and to take steps to prevent them from causing further harm. Cookies also help us prevent underage people from registering for Workplace accounts.
Site features and services
We use cookies to provide functionality that helps us provide Workplace to you.
For example: Cookies help us store preferences, know when you’ve seen or interacted with Workplace content, and provide you with customized content and experiences. For instance, cookies allow us to make suggestions to you and others.
We also use cookies to help provide you with content relevant to your locale.
For example: We store information in a cookie that is placed on your browser or device so you will see the site in your preferred language.
Performance
We use cookies to provide you with the best experience possible.
For example: Cookies help us route traffic between servers and understand how quickly the Workplace Services load for different people. Cookies also help us record the ratio and dimensions of your screen and windows and to know whether you’ve enabled high contrast mode, so that we can render our sites and apps correctly.
We also use cookies to help provide you with content relevant to your locale.
