Cookie Notice (Deprecated August 24, 2022)


This Cookie Notice explains how Notion Labs, Inc. ("Notion," "we," "us," and "our") uses cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other similar technologies (collectively referred to as “Cookies”) to recognize you when you visit our public website at www.notion.so (the "Website"), and Notion’s online software-as-a-service platform including any related APIs provided by Notion, together with all related mobile and desktop applications (collectively, “Services”). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

Please take a look at our Privacy Policy if you’d like more information about how Notion collects, uses, and shares your personal information.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website.  Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the Cookie. Owners of a website can use Cookies for a variety of reasons that can include enabling their websites to work (or work more efficiently), providing personalized content and advertising, and creating website analytics.

Cookies are typically classified as either “session cookies” which are automatically deleted when you close your browser, or “persistent cookies” which will usually remain on your device until you delete them or they expire. Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Notion) are called "first party cookies".  Only Notion can access the first party cookies we set. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and social sharing). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your device both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits other websites that have partnered with them.

In addition to cookies, we may use other similar technologies like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs") or local storage.  Web beacons are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Services or opened an e-mail that we have sent them.  This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Services to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Services from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns.  Local storage enables a website or application to store information locally on your device(s) in order to enable certain functionality in our Services. Local storage may be used to improve your experience with our Services, for example, by enabling features, remembering your preferences, and speeding up site functionality.

Why does Notion use Cookies?

We use Cookies for several reasons. Some Cookies are required for technical reasons that are essential for our Services to operate and to provide user-requested functionality; we refer to these as "Strictly Necessary" Cookies. This is described in more detail below.

The specific types of first and third party Cookies served through our Services and the purposes they perform are described in the table below:
