Types of Cookies
We may use the following types of cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies. Our website requires the use of these cookies to properly operate or provide necessary functions relating to the services you request. They include, for example, cookies enabling you to securely log into our website, take the B Impact Assessment, use our platform, sign up for analytical and other services or purchase services.
- Analytical/performance cookies. These cookies allow us and our third-party service providers to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us improve how our website works by, for example, ensuring that users can easily find what they need on our website. These cookies generate aggregate statistics that are not associated with an individual account or visitor.
- Functionality cookies. These cookies enable helpful but non-essential website functions that improve your website experience. By recognizing you when you return to our website, they may, for example, allow us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name, or remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). These cookies may enable visitor identification across websites operated by B Lab Company or our affiliates and over time.
Except for strictly necessary cookies, all first-party cookies set by this site, primarily used for authentication, will expire no later than 60 minutes after creation. Third-party cookie expiration periods are set by their respective owners.
