To administer our Sites, for research purposes and to perform customer analytics, First Communities also has contracted with third party service providers to track and analyze statistical usage and volume information from our Site users. These third-party service providers use persistent Cookies to help us to improve the user experience, manage our Site content, and analyze how users navigate and utilize the Sites.
Session Cookies. Session Cookies are temporary and deleted from your machine when your web browser closes. We use session Cookies to help us track internet usage as described above.
Some cookies last only for the duration of your web session and expire when you exit your browser; other cookies may last for longer than your web session, including after you exit your browser, for example by remembering you when you return to our website.
The table below explains the persistent cookies and session cookies that First Communities and our third-party partners use and why.
These Cookies are used by us or third-party service providers to analyze how the Sites are used and how they are performing. For example, these Cookies track what pages are most frequently visited, and from what locations our visitors come from. If you subscribe to a newsletter or otherwise register with the Sites, these Cookies may be correlated to you. For example: IP Addresses.
These Cookies let us operate the Sites in accordance with the choices you make. These Cookies permit us to "remember" you in-between visits. For instance, we will recognize your username and remember how you customized the Sites and services, for example by adjusting text size, fonts, languages and other parts of web pages that are alterable and provide you with the same customizations during future visits. For example: browsing activity, financial information, and purchase history.
