What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables CLEAR features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to CLEAR and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on CLEAR. A cookie is a way in which login information or details are saved, a way in which we can improve our messaging to visitors and advertisers, and a way to measure or gauge how often a user or client visits a CLEAR webpage.
When does CLEAR place cookies?
What types of cookies does CLEAR use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to CLEAR or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by CLEAR when you return to the site. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit CLEAR, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with CLEAR faster and more secure.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, CLEAR does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
What third-party cookies does CLEAR use?
Our cookies table lists some of the third-party cookies on our sites. Please note that the names of cookies, pixels, and other technologies may change over time.
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
