This Cookies Policy (the “Cookies Policy”) is intended to inform you of Pillar Science. (“Pillar”, “we” or “us”) uses cookies and related technologies (pixel, tags or beacons) (together “cookies” or “cookie”), on and, including our platforms (the “Website”).

Please take a minute to read and understand this Cookie Policy. 

This Cookie Policy does not apply to third party services, websites or applications, even if they are linked from our Website.

We encourage you to review their cookie practices.

If you have any questions, concerns or inquiries about how we process your personal data through cookies or for the exercise of your rights, you can reach us to us at:

Attention: Data Protection Officer (European Union and United Kingdom) / Privacy Officer (elsewhere)


Cookies include personal data such as electronic data. To know more about how we process your personal data, please refer to our Privacy Policy which also contains information regarding your rights.

  1. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small data file that is packed and stored as a cookie, sent to your web browser, and then stored on your computer. We include similar tracking technologies such as pixels and web beacons in our definition of cookies.

  • First party cookies are those installed by us and they are installed either for the time that you use our Services or they are stored longer to be used when you come back to use our Services.

  • Third-party cookies are installed by our partners and generally stay installed as you navigate the web. When you revisit our Services, the cookies that we have installed on your device will be sent to our web server so the information can be accessed and reused.

  • A session cookie is only installed temporarily in a browser’s memory, so once you close your browser, session cookies disappear. 

  • A persistent cookie is installed longer on your device. None of our cookies are installed for more than 24 months. Persistent cookies are commonly used for web analytics which requires tracking visitor behaviour over different websites, as with Google Analytics. Web analytics does not allow websites to identify you individually as it uses tokens as an identifier or is provided as mass traffic. However, third parties who are permitted to install these cookies on our Services, such as Google Analytics, may have access to more personal data about you.

Most cookies collect information such as how users arrive at and use our Services, or a user’s general location. Cookies can also log what type of device you are using to connect to our Services, which page and at what time, recognizing the browser on your terminal only during the period of validity of the cookie used. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for more information about the personal data that we process about you. 

  1. What types of cookies do you use, and why?

We use cookies for our Services to function as intended,  to provide functionalities as part of the Services, to analyze our performance and to ensure that our Services are secure. Cookies are also useful to identify bugs and errors. We use both first-party and third-party cookies.

We use cookies on the basis of consent. We use the following types of cookies, for the purposes set forth below. 

However, if you are subject to the GDPR or the UK GDPR, essential cookies are collected based on our legitimate interests because they are essential to the Services.





Essential cookies are necessary to operate the core functions of our Services. These include login cookies, session ID cookies, language cookies as well as security cookies. In other words, essential cookies are used solely to carry out or facilitate the transmission of communications over a network or are strictly necessary to provide the Services. ,


Functional cookies are used to provide you with some functionalities, and to remember preferences, consents and configurations.


Analytics cookies are used to generate aggregated statistical data about traffic and behavior of users when using our Services. For instance, we can determine how much time users spend on a page, and how successful our advertisements are. For instance, the cookie named _ga is used by Google Analytics to gather data about your behavior on our Services. 

We do not conduct interest-based advertising.

  1. How can I manage my preferences about cookies?

You can manage your cookies through your browser, however, if you decide to refuse all cookies (such as essential cookies), you may not be able to fully benefit from our Services.

You can choose to deactivate cookies at any time on your browser. You can accept or delete cookies one by one or delete them systematically.
