About cookies and similar technologies
We use Session Cookies which will automatically expire at the end of your browser session on our website and mobile apps. These are generally used for security purposes or to facilitate your use of our website or mobile apps. For example, we use session cookies to analyse the traffic on our website.
We may also use Persistent Cookies which will be stored for a longer period depending on the nature of their purpose. For example, persistent cookies are used to remember your preferences and choices when you use our website or for targeted advertising purposes.
We might also use techniques such as pixels, which we don’t refer to as cookies because they don’t store information on your device. A pixel is an electronic file embedded into an email which allows us to see if the message was delivered, if you read it and what you clicked on. We sometimes place these in marketing emails and newsletters. We use similar technology to get the same information about push notifications we send you, too.
Non-essential cookies help us make your experience better, improve the performance of our website and mobile apps and deliver relevant online, customer tailored advertising. Some non-essential cookies are placed by us and some by third parties.
What types of Tracking Technologies do we use?
There are five main types of Tracking Technologies:
• Strictly necessary Tracking Technologies –
These Tracking Technologies are essential to enable you to login, navigate around and use the features of our Services, or to provide a service requested by you (such as your username). We do not need to obtain your consent in order to use these Tracking Technologies. These Tracking Technologies can be used for security and integrity reasons – for example to detect violation of our policies and for support or security features.
• Functionality Tracking Technologies –
These Tracking Technologies allow our Services to remember choices you make (such as your language) and provide enhanced and personalized features. For example, these Tracking Technologies are used for authentication (to remember when you are logged-in) and support other features of our Services.
• Performance Tracking Technologies –
These Tracking Technologies collect information about your online activity (for example the duration of your visit on our Services), including behavioral data and content engagement metrics. These Tracking Technologies are used for analytics, research and to perform statistics (based on aggregated information).
• Marketing or Advertising Tracking Technologies –
These Tracking Technologies are used to deliver tailored offers and advertisements to you, based on your derived interests, as well as to perform email marketing campaigns. They can also be used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by our advertisers (for example advertising networks) and provide them insights about the people who see and interact with their ads, visit their websites, or use their app.
• Social Media Tracking Technologies –
Our website includes social media features, such as Facebook “Like” or “Share” buttons. These features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Services. Your interactions with these features are governed by the Privacy Statement of the company providing these features.
