What are local objects?

Local objects are small files that our websites download to your device when you visit us online. They are linked to your browser and hold a small amount of information about the way you interact with our websites.

What do you do with them?

What third parties do you work with?

We rely on third party service providers to manage local objects and the information they collect.

Google Analytics is our primary web analytics tool. It collects “clickstream” information when you use our websites that consists of information about the pages you visit, how long you spend there, and what you do on each page.

What are my choices?

You can always use your browser settings and other tools to control how your devices interact with cookies and other local objects. Your browser may also allow you to set a “Do Not Track” setting. If you block local objects like cookies, you may not be able to use certain features of our websites. Our websites may not be able to respond to Do Not Track settings from all browsers.

Browsers include settings that let you control some kinds of local objects. You can learn more about these settings for Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer, and Safari. Google Analytics provides information about how Google uses data that it collects via local objects and provides an ad settings manager and an opt out tool for most browsers.

How long do you retain data?

We retain information collected from local objects for varying lengths of time depending on what the data are and the kind of object that collected them. Some only last for the duration of one visit to a eBusiness Guru/Academy website. Others will last for anywhere between a couple of weeks to several months or indefinitely.
