Categories of use
What third-party cookies does Vanta use?
You can find a list of the third-party cookies that Vanta uses on our sites along with other relevant information in the cookie tables. Vanta does its best to keep this table updated, but please note that the number and names of cookies, pixels, and other technologies may change from time to time.
How are cookies used for advertising purposes?
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help Vanta market more effectively to users that may be interested in the Services. They also help with aggregated auditing, research, and reporting.
What can you do if you don't want cookies to be set or want them to be removed, or if you want to opt out of interest-based targeting?
Some people prefer not to allow cookies, which is why most browsers give you the ability to manage cookies to suit you. In some browsers you can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, giving you more fine-grained control over your privacy. What this means is that you can disallow cookies from all sites except those that you trust.
Browser manufacturers provide help pages relating to cookie management in their products. Please search for the relevant cookie management help page or documentation for your preferred browser.
You can opt out of interest-based targeting provided by participating ad servers through the Digital Advertising Alliance (http://optout.aboutads.info/). In addition, on your iPhone, iPad or Android, you can change your device settings to control whether you see online interest-based ads.
If you limit the ability of websites and applications to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience and/or lose the ability to access the services, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings, like login information.
Does Vanta respond to Do Not Track Signals?
The Sites and Services do not collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Therefore, “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to the Sites or Services, and Vanta does not alter any data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.
