How Vaxini uses cookies

A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.

We use cookies for many purposes. We use them, for example, to remember your preferences, to make the content you see more relevant to you, to count how many visitors we receive to a page, to help you sign up for our services, to protect your data, or to remember your site settings.

Below you can see a list of the types of cookies used by Vaxini and also find out how our partners and providers use cookies. Our Privacy Policy explains how we protect your privacy in our use of cookies and other information.

Types of cookies used by Vaxini

We use different types of cookies to run Vaxini websites and vaccine-related products. Some or all of the cookies identified below may be stored in your browser. You can view and manage cookies in your browser (though some browsers for mobile devices may not offer this visibility).

Category of use Example
Preferences These cookies allow our websites to remember information that changes the way the site behaves or looks, such as your preferred language or the region you are in. For instance, by remembering your region, a website may be able to provide you with local immunization schedules. These cookies can also assist you in changing text size, font, and other parts of web pages that you can personalize.

Loss of the information stored in a preference cookie may make the website experience less functional but should not prevent it from working.

Security We use security cookies to authenticate users, prevent fraudulent use of login credentials, and protect user data from unauthorized parties.

Our service provider Cloudflare sets a particular cookie. The __cfduid cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. For example, if the visitor is in a coffee shop where there are a bunch of infected machines, but the specific visitor’s machine is trusted (e.g. because they’ve completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows us to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID in your web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information.

This cookie is strictly necessary for Cloudflare’s security features and cannot be turned off.

Processes Process cookies help make the website work and deliver services that the website visitor expects, like navigating around web pages or accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, the website cannot function properly.
Session State Websites often collect information about how users interact with a website. This may include the pages users visit most often and whether users get error messages from certain pages. We use these so-called ‘session state cookies’ to help us improve our services, in order to improve our users’ browsing experience. Blocking or deleting these cookies will not render the website unusable.
Analytics Vaxini analyzes the usage of sites and apps via the integration of Google Analytics and Yandex Metrica services.

Google Analytics is Google’s analytics tool that helps website and app owners to understand how their visitors engage with their properties. It may use a set of cookies to collect information and report website usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors to Google. The main cookie used by Google Analytics is the ‘__ga’ cookie.

Yandex.Metrica is a web analytics tool that helps you get visual reports and video recordings of user activity, track traffic sources, and evaluate the performance of a website or app. The main cookie used by Yandex Metrica is the ‘__ym’ cookie.

Performance Vaxini uses the service provided by New Relic for deep performance analytics for every part of our software environment. We can easily view and analyze massive amounts of data, and gain actionable insights in real-time, both for our apps and websites.

New Relic delivers application performance monitoring (APM) as a purely SaaS product. By embracing the power and accessibility of the cloud, New Relic is an integral tool for developers, IT ops teams, and executives around the world with the purpose of consistently improving software performance.

New Relic uses the JSESSIONID cookie under the domain ‘nr-data.net’ to measure website performance on your browser.
