WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are a standard feature of websites that allow us to store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to the Site. Cookies help us to learn which areas of the Site are useful and which areas need improvement.
You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you disable this function, your experience on the Site may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.
WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE?
Essential Cookies. Essential cookies enable you to navigate the Site and to use its services and features. Without these absolutely necessary cookies, the Site will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like it to and we may not be able to provide the Site or certain services or features.
Preference Cookies. Preference cookies collect information about your choices and preferences, and allow us to remember language or other local settings and customize the Site accordingly.
Analytics Cookies. Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the Site, and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the Site, help us record any difficulties you have with the Site, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Site, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information to analyse the Site traffic, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information.
Among others, we use Google Analytics, provided by Google, Inc. (“Google“). We use Google Analytics to collect anonymized statistics in order to improve the Site. We have taken the following measures to protect the data collected through Google Analytics:
- We have concluded a data processing agreement with Google about how Google may process the data collected through Google Analytics;
- We have configured Google Analytics settings to mask the last octet of user IP address;
- We have configured Google Analytics to not share data with third parties; and
- We do not use other Google services in conjunction with Google Analytics.
Learn more about Google Analytics and privacy. The users can selectively disable Google Analytics by installing on their browser the opt-out component provided by Google. For more information, please refer to the links below:
Device Fingerprinting & Other Technologies
In order to be able to offer you content that we believe may interest you based on your activity on the Sites, and for fraud prevention and authentication purposes, we may also use other technologies that are similar to cookies. For example, we may gather device attributes and combine information collected by most browsers or automatically through your device to create a unique ID that identifies your browser or device to us with reasonable certainty. In this context we may collect, use and combine the following information:
- On iOS: UUID & ADID
- On Android: Devices: Unique ID
We use this information:
- To learn about your interests and interactions based on content viewed on our Sites (for example, how often you visit our Sites and what content you view or click on);
- For fraud prevention and authentication purposes.
We may also use beacons, pixel tags, or Java scripts. These enable us to remember you and serve personalized content or offers to you when you return to our Sites.
