Cookie Policy

Last Updated: June 7, 2018

As you navigate our websites, Lyric may collect information through the use of commonly used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and web beacons (“Website Navigational Information”). Website Navigational Information includes standard information from your web browser (such as browser type and browser language), your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the actions you take on Lyric’s websites (such as the web pages viewed and the links clicked). For additional information about the collection of Website Navigational Information by Lyric, please click here.

Cookies, Web Beacons, and IP Addresses

Lyric uses commonly used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and web beacons, to collect information as you navigate our websites (“Website Navigational Information”). As described more fully below, we and our partners use these cookies or similar technologies to analyze trends, administer websites and Services, track users’ movements around our Lyric’s websites and Services, serve targeted advertisements, and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. This section describes the types of Website Navigational Information used on Lyric’s websites and Services and how this information may be used.

Cookies

Lyric uses cookies to make interactions with Lyric’s websites easy and meaningful. When you visit one of Lyric’s websites, Lyric's servers send a cookie to your computer or device. Standing alone, cookies do not personally identify you; they merely recognize your web browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to Lyric, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or filling out a web form (such as a “Contact Me” or a “Request a Demo” web form) or have previously identified yourself to Lyric, you remain anonymous to Lyric.

Lyric uses cookies that are session-based and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer or device after you close your browser or turn off your computer. You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level, but if you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions on our websites or Services.

The following sets out how Lyric uses different categories of cookies and your options for managing cookies’ settings:

Types of Cookies

Required cookies enable you to navigate Lyric’s websites and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the websites and using Lyric Services.

If you have chosen to identify yourself to Lyric, Lyric may place on your browser cookies containing an encrypted, unique identifier. These cookies allow Lyric to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the websites and Services and to process your online transactions and requests.

Because required cookies are essential to operate Lyric’s websites and the Services, there is no option to opt out of these cookies.

Functionality cookies allow Lyric’s websites and Services to remember information you have entered or choices you make (such as your username, language, or your region) and provide enhanced, more personal features.  These cookies also enable you to optimize your use of Lyric's websites and Services after logging in. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts, and other parts of web pages that you can customize.

Functional cookies may also be used to improve how Lyric's websites and Services function and perform; to enhance and customize your interactions with Lyric; and to help us provide you with more relevant messages, including marketing communications. These cookies collect information about how Visitors, Customers, and Attendees use our Lyric’s websites and Services, including which pages they go to most often and if they receive error messages from certain pages.

Lyric may use its own technology (under Lyric’s brand ) or third parties to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from Visitors, Customers, and Attendees; to provide enhanced interactions and more relevant communications; and to track the performance of Lyric's advertisements.

Lyric and its third-party partners may also utilize HTML5 local storage or Flash cookies for these purposes. Flash cookies and HTML local storage are different from browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored.

Targeting or Advertising cookies

Lyric sometimes uses cookies delivered by third parties to show you ads for Lyric products and services that we think may interest you on any devices you may use and to track the performance of Lyric advertisements. For example, in these cases, cookies remember information such as which browsers have visited Lyric’s websites. The information provided to third parties does not include personal information, but this information may be re-associated with personal information after Lyric receives it. If Lyric is using one of its own cookie-related products on our own Lyric website, then a cookie related to ads may appear on our website under the Lyric name.

Lyric also contracts with third-party advertising networks that collect IP addresses and other information from web beacons (see below) on Lyric’s websites and Services, from emails, and on third-party websites. Ad networks follow your online activities over time and across different sites or other online services by collecting Website Navigational Information through automated means, including through the use of cookies. These technologies may recognize you across the different devices you use, such as a desktop or laptop computer, smartphone, or tablet. Third parties use this information to provide advertisements about products and services tailored to your interests. You may see these advertisements on other websites or mobile applications on any of your devices. This process also helps us manage and track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. Third parties, with whom Lyric partners to provide certain features on our Lyric’s websites or to display advertising based upon your Web browsing activity, use Flash cookies to collect and store information. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored.

To learn more about these and other advertising networks and your ability to opt out of collection by certain third party, please visit the opt-out pages of the Network Advertising Initiative, here, and the Digital Advertising Alliance, here.

To manage the use of targeting or advertising cookies on this website, click "Cookie Preferences" in the footer of this page.

To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies click here. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 local storage.

To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout        

Web Beacons

Lyric uses web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Visitors’, Customers’, and Attendees’ usage of Lyric’s websites and interaction with emails from Lyric. Web beacons are often-transparent graphic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular website or Service tied to the web beacon, and a description of a website or Service tied to the web beacon. For example, Lyric may place web beacons in marketing emails that notify Lyric when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of Lyric’s websites. Lyric uses web beacons to operate and improve COMPANY’s websites, Services, and email communications.

Log Files, IP Addresses, URLs, and Other Data

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer our websites and Services. This information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), device and application identification numbers, your location, your browser type, your Internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, the pages and files you viewed, your searches, your operating system and system configuration information, and date/time stamps associated with your usage. Due to Internet communications standards, when you visit or use Lyric’s websites and Services, we automatically receive the URL of the website from which you came and the website to which you go when you leave our Website. This information is used to analyze overall trends, to help us improve our websites and Services, to track and aggregate non-personal information, and to provide the websites and Services. For example, Lyric uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Visitors, Customers, and Attendees navigate Lyric’s websites. Lyric also collects IP addresses from Customers when they log into the Services as part of Lyric’s “Identity Confirmation” and “IP Range Restrictions” security features.

Do Not Track

Currently, various browsers — including Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer, and Safari — offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to websites visited by you about your browser DNT preference setting. We do not currently commit to responding to browsers' DNT signals with respect to our websites, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies, or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. We will continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.
