What Are Cookies?

As is common practice with almost all professional websites, this website uses cookies or browser-based local storage, which are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer, to improve your experience by remembering your preferences and providing content relevant to your location. Cookies save your user preferences and behaviors. This page describes what information they gather, how we use it, and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored. However, this may downgrade or break certain elements of this website's functionality. Although you may have some privacy concerns about websites having access to your personal information, cookies only store your information for a short amount of time.

How the TekkiGurus Website Uses Cookies

The TekkiGurus website uses cookies for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, in most cases there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to this website. We recommended that you leave on all cookies if you are not sure whether you need them or not in case they are used to provide a service that you use.

Login Related Data

The TekkiGurus website uses browser-based local storage when you are logged in so that we can remember this as you move from page to page. This prevents you from having to log in every single time you visit a new page. In particular, there is a small number of “gated” videos and articles. That number will grow over time. You will need to be logged in to view that gated content. If you log out of TekkiGurus when you leave the website, we clear this browser-based local storage. If you leave the website without logging back in, sometimes we can reuse that storage (so you don't have to log in again) or sometimes the cookie expires and you need to log in again.

Third-Party Cookies

In some special cases we also use cookies provided by trusted third parties. The following section details which third party cookies you might encounter through this site.

  • Google Analytics: This website uses Google Analytics (one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solution on the web) for helping us to understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the website and the pages that you visit so we can continue to produce engaging content. (For example, if we identify that a lot of people read SharePoint content, and not a lot read Office tips and tricks content, then we know to increase the number of SharePoint articles we publish.)
