Your privacy and cookies

When you visit a website, it may store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies. This information might be about you, your preferences or your device and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalized web experience. Some types of cookies are required for WeVideo to provide a functional site or services, other types of cookies are designed to enhance our site or services. You can choose to accept or refuse the cookies that are not strictly necessary. The following cookie policy is intended to help you understand the benefits of accepting the optional cookies.

Strictly necessary cookies

Strictly necessary cookies are always active.

Amazon Web Services WeVideo serves its products on the cloud using Amazon Web Services (AWS). Video over the cloud demands fine-tuned internet connections and to achieve the right measure of performance, servers are "load balanced" to fine-tune your experience when you accept AWS cookies. Another cookie that we use to serve from AWS is a general platform session cookie that is used to make it possible for our servers to maintain an anonymous user session. These cookies do not contain personally identifiable information.

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
