Cookies are small files that are placed on your browser or device by the website or app you’re using. Pixel tags (also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels) are small blocks of code on a webpage or app that allow us to do things like read and place cookies and transmit information to us or our partners. The resulting connection can include information such as a device’s IP address, the time a person viewed the pixel, an identifier associated with the browser or device, and the type of browser being used.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent that allows a website or app to store and retrieve data on a person’s computer, mobile phone, or other devices. Some examples include device or HTML5 local storage and caching. A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
We use these technologies for a variety of reasons. We use them to improve our Service, to count how many visitors we receive to a page, to help you sign up for our services, or to remember your browser settings.

kola.<number>.session: A unique ID for a visitor that is unique for that session used for fraud detection and analytics.
kola.<number>.cid: Once someone signs up for information we keep this cookie so that we can identify them when they come back.

When do we read cookies?
Web browsers send any cookies for a particular web domain (ex: uphodl.com) to the website each time a device with those cookies accesses content served from that domain. This means that any uphodl.com cookie will be sent to us when any page is accessed at uphodl.com by that device. It also means that these cookies are sent to us when someone accesses a third-party website or application that integrates or uses our Service.
We may work with partners so that we can place or read cookies on your browsers or devices when you visit third-party services. This allows us to do things like reading and reference cookies from more than one device or browser that you use, on and off of our Service, so we can provide you with consistent service across all of your devices and improve and understand your experience.
