Welcome to EKOS! We are a networking and engagement platform for professionals and businesses.
To provide a great product experience and for certain functions, we use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device. This Cookies Policy applies to our website at www.ekos.ai (the "Website") and our networking and engagement platform that enables professionals and businesses to connect, engage and learn from each other (the "Platform"). This Cookies Policy explains the cookies we use and their purpose.
1.What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that uniquely identify your browser or device. The cookie file is stored on your browser. When you return to that website (or visit websites that use the same cookies) these websites recognize the cookies and your browsing device.
Cookies do many different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your experience. Cookies can tell us, for example, whether you have visited our Website before.
2.Are there different types of cookies?
There are different types of cookies, including first party cookies (which are served directly by us to your computer or device) and third party cookies (which are served by a third party on our behalf). Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Website and Platform (e.g., interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the Website and also when it visits certain other websites.
Cookies can remain on your device for different periods of time. Some cookies are session cookies, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are persistent cookies, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. They can be used to recognise your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.
3.What are cookies used for?

5. Other tracking technologies
Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called 'tracking pixels' or 'clear gifs'). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Website. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page of our Website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Website and Platform from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party site, and to improve performance. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Website and Platform. These companies may use information about your visits to the Website and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these.
Some cookies are essential and we cannot provide our service to you without them, but there are others that can be turned off. Please note that turning off certain cookies will disable some of the features available to you through our Website and Platform. We cannot guarantee that your experience on our Website and Platform will be as good as it could otherwise be.

If you want to change your settings at any time (for example, if you accept all cookies but later decide you do not want a certain type of cookie), you’ll need to use your browser settings to remove any third party cookies dropped on your previous visit.
7.3 Third Party Cookies:
In addition to managing cookies in your browser settings, you can also opt out of certain third party cookies. For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how users engage with our websites, compile reports and improve our services. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual users. You can opt out of these cookies without affecting how you visit our websites.
