What is a cookie? A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. When you visit a website, the site asks your browser to store those some identifiers. The identifiers allow the website to understand your preferences or login information. Cookies that are sent by the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (“IUPAT” or “Us” or “We” or “Our”) are called First-Party Cookies. However, We also use Third-Party Cookies. Third-Party Cookies are from a domain different from the domain of the website you are visiting. Third-Party Cookies can be used for advertising and marketing efforts.
Below is an explanation of the different types of cookies and other tracking technology and their purpose.

Do Not Track
Some Internet browsers – like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. Since uniform standards for “DNT” signals have not been adopted, our Mailchimp Sites, Connected Sites, Landing Pages, and Websites do not currently process or respond to “DNT” signals. Mailchimp takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard. To learn more about “DNT”, please visit https://allaboutdnt.com/.
