Cookie Policy

Smartria uses cookies to help improve your experience. This Cookie Policy (“Cookie Policy”) describes how Smart-RIA Ventures, Inc. (“Company”, “we”, or “us”) uses cookies to help improve your experience across our websites, service platforms, and any other sites we or our affiliates own and or operate, including but not limited to our Company website at, our Smartria services, and any third-party sources operated by us (“Sites”). 

This Cookie Policy is part of our Privacy Policy and covers the use of cookies between your device and our Sites. We also provide basic information on third-party services we may use, who may also use cookies as part of their service, though they are not covered by our policy.

We use cookies with your knowledge and consent.

If you don’t wish to accept cookies from us, you should instruct your browser to refuse cookies from our Site with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired content and services. If you do not want to accept cookies from us, please see “How you can control or opt out of cookies” covered in Section 4 of this Cookie Policy.

1. What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit, typically containing information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the website to recognize your web browser when you return, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself. 

Cookies are used to enable certain features (eg. logging in), to track website usage (eg. analytics), to store your user settings (eg. timezone, notification preferences), and to personalize your content (eg. advertising, language).

Cookies set by the website you are visiting are normally referred to as first-party cookies, and typically only track your activity on that particular website. Cookies set by other sites and companies (ie. third parties) are called third-party cookies and can be used to track you on other sites that use the same third-party service. 

2. Types of Cookies and How We Use Them

(1) Essential Cookies

Essential cookies are crucial to your experience of a website, enabling core features like user login, account management, and payment processing. We use essential cookies to enable certain functions across our Sites. 

(2) Performance Cookies

Performance cookies are used in the tracking of how you use a website during your visit, without collecting personal information about you. Typically, this information is anonymous and aggregated with information tracked across all website users. This kind of information often helps companies to better understand visitor usage patterns, identify and diagnose problems or errors their users may encounter, and make better strategic decisions in improving their audience’s overall website experience. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party services. We use performance cookies across our Sites.

(4) Targeting/Advertising Cookies

Targeting/advertising cookies are used in determining what promotional content is more relevant and appropriate to you and your interests. Websites may use them to deliver targeted advertising or to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. This helps companies improve the effectiveness of their campaigns and the quality of content presented to you. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party services. Targeting/advertising cookies set by third parties may be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service. We use targeting/advertising cookies across our Sites.

3. Third-Party Cookies on Our Site

We may employ third-party companies and individuals on our websites—for example, analytics providers and content partners. We grant these third parties access to selected information to perform specific tasks on our behalf. They may also set third-party cookies in order to deliver the services they are providing. Third-party cookies can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service. As we have no control over third-party cookies, they are not covered by our cookie policy.

4. How You Can Control or Opt Out of Cookies

If you do not wish to accept cookies from us, you can instruct your browser to refuse cookies from our Site. Most browsers are configured to accept cookies by default, but you can update these settings to either refuse cookies altogether, or to notify you when a website is trying to set or update a cookie. If you browse websites from multiple devices, you may need to update your settings on each individual device. Although some cookies can be blocked with little impact on your experience of a website, blocking all cookies may mean you are unable to access certain features and content across the sites you visit.

5. Modification

We reserve the right to change this Cookie Policy at any time without notice. By using our Sites, you are agreeing to be bound by the then current version of this Cookie Policy.

6. Governing Law

This Policy is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Tennessee and you irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Tennessee.

7. Cookie Policy Effective Date

This Cookie Policy is effective as of December 1, 2020.
