Cookies Camunda Uses and Why They Are Used 

When a user or customer visits any Camunda online property, Camunda may store or retrieve information from the browser used. Camunda uses the following types of cookies for the following purposes:

Strictly Necessary: Essential cookies that enable Camunda’s websites and associated features to operate, and which allow Camunda to provide services that depend on these websites and features (e.g., remembering cookie permission settings, session logins, etc.).

Convenience and Personalization: Enables Camunda to remember choices user’s make via Camunda’s Online Properties, including preferred language/region, and enables the ability to suggest content that matches user navigation patterns.

Performance and Analysis: These cookies collect statistical-type information (aggregated, pseudonymous) used to measure, enhance, and improve the content, quality, and performance of Camunda Online Properties.

Advertising and Retargeting: These cookies are set by Camunda or by Camunda’s advertising services to provide users or customers with relevant advertising, and to allow Camunda to collect data related to the page visited and activities performed on the page. Cookies may also be used when information is shared using a social media feature or service on Camunda’s Online Properties. Social media companies’ privacy policies govern how information is used.


Other Automatic Data Collection Tools and Why They Are Used 

Web Beacons: Camunda may use and permit select third-parties to use web beacons (usually in combination with cookies) to compile information about user website usage and interactions to provide relevant content and ads.

A web beacon is characteristically a transparent graphic image embedded in online content, pictures, videos, and emails that allow a server to read information from a device, track when a user has viewed specific content or email messages, determines the date and time the beacon was viewed, and the IP address of the device used. As an example, Camunda may use web beacons in our Online Properties, newsletters or emails to understand whether our mailing system is functioning effectively, and whether emails were opened.

Embedded Web Links: Camunda emails often include links designed to redirect users to specific areas of the Online Properties via Camunda servers, and are used to determine which links in the email have been clicked. The redirection system allows Camunda to change the destination URL, if necessary, and helps determine the effectiveness of Camunda communications and marketing initiatives. Information about email and other interactions may be connected to users’ personal identities.


Options to Control the Use of Cookies and Automatic Data Collection Tools

Opt-Out: The user can prevent third-party technologies mentioned in the respective section from being stored in the future by placing an opt-out request. To opt-out from tracking on Camunda.com website, the user must click on the “Opt-out from all tracking” button at the following link: https://camunda.com/opt-out/. The opt-out request will set an opt-out cookie in the user’s browser. This serves solely to assign the user’s opt-out request and prevents Camunda from storing cookies on the user´s computer in the future. In addition, the user can always configure the browser setting accordingly and decline acceptance of either third-party cookies or all cookies. This way the user also has the option to delete previously stored cookies, but might not be able to use all features of our Online Properties.

Here you will find other opt-out mechanisms:

Disabling web beacons: Users may be able to disable web beacons in email messages by not downloading images contained in Camunda messages. This may not always disable a web beacon or other Automatic Data Collection Tools in the email message due to specific email software capabilities. Refer to the details provided by the email service provider. Amending cookie settings or opting out in a web browser may also render web beacons ineffective.

Disabling embedded web links: Configure privacy settings in web browser and email client that will restrict Camunda from collecting information on links clicked.
