Cookies are files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to the device you use when you visit a website. Cookies are then read by the originating website on each subsequent visit, or another website that recognizes that cookie. Cookies do lots of different and useful jobs, such as remembering your preferences and generally improving your online experience.
These are the different types of Cookies we and our service providers may use on our Sites:
If you register on our website, or otherwise provide us with your personal information, we may associate that information with Cookie-generated data and other information we collect from or about you or that you provide, information regarding your use of our website, or information we receive from or about you from third parties. We will use this combined data for marketing and analytics purposes.
Cookies may also be used to allow us and third parties to know when you visit our website, and to understand how you interact with e-mails, advertisements, or other content. Through Cookies, aggregate and other information such as your operating system, browser version, and the URL you came from may be obtained and used to enhance your experience and understand traffic patterns. This technology counts the number of users who visit a particular service from specific banner advertisements outside the ces.tech website or who clicked on links or graphics included in e-mail newsletters received from CTA in relation to CES Events. It may also be used as a tool to compile aggregated statistics about how this website is used, perform analytics and help us optimize our website, and help serve you advertising based on your interests, as described in Section 6 below.
Cookies may be placed on your device by CTA as the website operator. These Cookies are called “first party” Cookies. Some Cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than CTA. These Cookies are called “third party” Cookies. For example, a CTA partner may place a third party Cookie to enable online chat services.
Some Cookies operate from the time you visit a CTA site to the end of that particular web browsing session. These Cookies expire and are automatically deleted when you close your Internet browser. These Cookies are called “session” Cookies.
Some Cookies will stay on your device between browsing sessions—they do not expire when you close your browser. These Cookies are called “persistent” Cookies. The length of time a persistent Cookie stays on your device varies from Cookie to Cookie. We and others use persistent Cookies for a variety of purposes, such as to store your preferences so that they are available for the next visit, and to keep a more accurate account of how often you visit our Sites, how often you return, how your use of the Sites may vary over time, and the effectiveness of advertising efforts.
DoubleClick Floodlight Cookies enable us to understand if you complete certain actions on our website(s) after you have seen or clicked through one of our display/ video advertisements served on Google or other platforms via DoubleClick or other advertising platforms including The Trade Desk, AppNexus, Amazon DSP, and Google DV 360. These services serve an anonymous, unique identifier which is used to track how successful our advertising is and to understand the content with which you have engaged on our website(s) so they may subsequently deliver some targeted advertisements to you.
Visitors to our website may click on a link containing tracking information that allows our partners, such as Airbnb, to ensure that referrals are properly attributed to CTA and we may receive compensation for these referrals.
Visitors to our website are advised via a pop-up message about the Cookies that we use and directed to this page if they would like more details. This Cookie from Cookie Script remembers that the customer has accepted the Cookie consent banner. It is stored in the user's browser and means you don’t see the banner again. This site also uses Google Tag Manager which is a tag management system that allows for the management and updating of all the other Cookies/tags noted in this policy.
Litmus Analytics and Salesforce Marketing Cloud may be used with our marketing email messages to track the success (email opens, clicks on links) of these messages. Personal information is stored in Salesforce Marketing Cloud if our customers complete a form for registration to events, contact/request forms or for subscription to our email communications. Non-personal information such as IP address, operating system, web browser, and pages visited is gathered by both Litmus Analytics and Salesforce Marketing Cloud.
We may use Google reCAPTCHA (“reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether data have been entered on our website (e.g. in a contact form) by a person or by an automated program. This is to protect our website from fraudulent automated spying and from spam.
Our mobile application includes functionality which allows our attendees to identify their location at the event. Application users choose to use the application anonymously or to login as an identified user in which case the personal data provided upon registration may be used. Information, such as IP address, device ID and location is gathered.
Brightcove and YouTube are used to deliver video content on our website. We may also use Libsyn to allow our podcast player to display and function on the site. Their Cookies gauge the bandwidth of your internet connection so they can optimize the video display and also identify unique users so they can personalize your experience based on previous video usage.
Crazy Egg and Google Analytics collects information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The Cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, from which visitors have come to the site, and the pages they visited.
You have the option to set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the placement of Cookies and only allow Cookies in individual cases, exclude Cookies for specific events or automatically delete cookies. If you disable or limit the use of these Cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited or impaired.

Please note that some browsers have incorporated Do Not Track (“DNT”) preferences. Most of these features, when turned on, send signals to the website you are visiting indicating that you do not wish to have information about your online searching and browsing activities collected or processed. We do not honor DNT signals from this website at this time.
