When you use Databricks websites and applications (the “Sites”), our data processing platform products and services (the “Platform Services”) and in the usual course of business, such as in connection with our events, sales, and marketing activities (collectively, “Databricks Services”), we use standard automated data collection tools such as Cookies, Web Beacons, and other identifiers for the purposes described below.
“Cookies” are small text files that are placed on your hard drive by a web server when you access our Sites or Services. Cookies may either be first party cookies (placed by us) or third party cookies (placed by third parties), and there are a few different types (described in the table below).
“Web beacons” (also known as web bugs, pixel tags or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Sites and Services for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Sites and Services and to monitor how many visitors view our Sites and Services. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an email).
