Wix, together with its marketing, analytics and technology partners, uses certain monitoring and tracking technologies (such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags and scripts). These technologies are used in order to maintain, provide and improve our Site on an ongoing basis, and in order to provide our visitors with a better experience. For example, thanks to these technologies, we are able to maintain and keep track of our user’s preferences and authenticated sessions, to better secure our Site, to identify technical issues, user trends and effectiveness of campaigns, and to monitor and improve the overall performance of our Site.
Cookies: In order for some of these technologies to work properly, a small data file (“cookie”) must be downloaded and stored on your device. By default, we use several persistent cookies for purposes of session and user authentication, security, keeping your preferences (e.g., regarding default language and settings), connection stability (e.g., for uploading media, using e-Commerce features, etc.), monitoring performance of our Site and marketing campaigns, and generally providing and improving our Site.
