List of Cookies

The main cookie set by Showcase IDX does not contain any personally identifiable information and just a token that we use to tell who is who based on the session. This lets us do a bunch of fancy stuff. It’s remarkably private. Showcase IDX does store some information about the user before they sign up, but that is in the browser cache of their own device and it’s accessed without going through or onto Showcase IDX servers. We also track analytics on our search pages through using Google Analytics. This lets us see how the IDX and website are being used, and we use this information to make educated fact-based decisions that improve the product. It is anonymized and we cannot see what individual sites or customer are doing. Only the aggregate of all instances of our product.
