Cookie Policy

This policy describes the use of cookies and other technologies. Like many websites, DigiPen uses first-party cookies and third-party cookies on www.digipen.edu, games.digipen.edu, news.digipen.edu, singapore.digipen.edu, www.digipen.es, gallery.digipen.edu and their subdomains (the "Sites"). By using DigiPen's Sites, you consent to our use of cookies and other technologies as described below.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or mobile application. Cookies are then sent back to the originating site on each subsequent visit, or to another site that recognizes the cookies.

How to Manage Your Cookie Preferences

Most web browsers allow you to modify and manage your browsing preferences. You can modify your web browser to refuse cookies or to delete certain cookies. You may be able to manage other technologies in the same way that you manage cookies using your browser's preferences. On your mobile device, you may also have a "Limit Ad Tracking" setting (on iOS devices) or a setting to "Opt out of Interest-Based Ads" (on Android) which allows you to limit the use of information about your use of apps for purposes of serving ads targeted to your interests.

There is no accepted standard on how to respond to Do Not Track signals, and DigiPen does not respond to such signals. Rather, you may visit aboutads.info to receive more information about the collection and use of information about your online activities for online behavioral advertising or to learn how to opt out of having your data used for online behavioral advertising by Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) participating companies. European users can also visit youronlinechoices.com to learn how to opt out of having their data used for online behavioral advertising by European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA) member companies.

Please note that if you choose to block cookies, you may impair our Sites or prevent certain elements of our Sites from functioning. Also, if you delete your cookies in the future you will need to opt again and if you use multiple web browsers, you may need to opt again.

Please note that even if you opt out using the mechanisms above, you may still receive advertisements when using DigiPen's Sites.

Types of Cookies and Technologies Used

First-Party Cookies

DigiPen uses a number of first-party cookies, most of which expire when the user's browser is closed. Generally, these cookies help to store user information (i.e. language preferences) or ensure that users are aware of specific events related to their campus.

Third-Party Cookies

DigiPen uses the following third-party technologies:

  • Google Analytics
    We use Google Analytics to track the behavior of website visitors. Their third-party tracking cookies are used on all of our sites and subdomains and provide us with information used to learn where our visitors are coming from (e.g., traffic sources), how visitors interact with our site (e.g., how many pages they view, how long they stay during a visit, etc.), what kind of devices are used to access our site, etc. We use this data in aggregate to analyze the effectiveness of our website and to improve user experience. We do not track user demographics (this is an opt-in feature for Google Analytics customers). Our sites are still functional for users who choose to disable this cookie. Analytics cookies used by Google are persistent cookies that expire after two years.
  • Adobe Typekit
    We use Typekit (from Adobe) to display specific typefaces on the Sites. Adobe uses cookies within Typekit to collect information about the fonts and typography being served on our sites and to track usage statistics. The information collected is used for the purposes of billing and compliance, and may include the following:
    • Fonts served
    • Kit ID
    • Account ID (identifies the customer the kit is from)
    • Service providing the fonts (e.g., Typekit or Edge Web Fonts)
    • Application requesting the fonts (e.g., Adobe Muse)
    • Server serving the fonts (e.g., Typekit servers or Enterprise CDN)
    • Hostname of page loading the fonts
    • The amount of time it takes the web browser to download the fonts
    • The amount of time it takes from the web browser downloading the fonts until the fonts are applied
    More information is available here: Adobe Cookie Policy.
  • AddThis (tool for integrating social media)
    We use AddThis in select areas of our Sites to facilitate sharing of our content on social media. All social media plug-ins and tools use cookies any time a user chooses to share content to social media, using one of those plug-ins or services. AddThis also uses cookies to track information about the sites a user visits once their cookie is set. They use this information to serve targeted ads on other sites. Our sites do not use re-marketing or display advertising. Users can opt out of the AddThis double-click advertising cookie, but that is only accomplished through the use of another cookie. For more information, see their Privacy Policy.
  • ClickDimensions
    ClickDimensions is a cloud-based marketing automation platform that uses cookies to provide information about site visitors including amount of time spent on a page and names of pages visited. This information is anonymous until a visitor requests information and opts into our email marketing list, at which time their anonymous browsing history will be linked with their record.
  • YouTube
    DigiPen embeds videos from our official YouTube channel using YouTube's privacy-enhanced mode. This mode may involve the use of cookies. To find out more please visit YouTube's embedding videos information page.
