EFFECTIVE DATE: DECEMBER 2020
We want to be transparent about how and why data about you and your online activities may be used in connection with our services. This policy includes the following sections
• What cookies and online tracking technologies do we use?
• Your choices (managing cookies and opting out)
• How to contact us.
1. WHAT COOKIES AND ONLINE TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES DO WE USE?
Web Browser Cookies
A cookie is a small text file that is sent by a website to your computer, mobile device, or other device where it is stored by your web browser. A cookie contains limited information, usually a unique identifier and the name of the online service. This information enables online services to recognize you as you interact with or revisit the service. Cookies are used for a wide variety of purposes such as to keep you logged in or to remember what’s in your basket if you’re shopping online, to remember your preferences and settings, to analyze how you use the service, and to serve advertising to you.
Cookies may be served to you by the online service you are visiting (a “first party cookie”) or by another organization operating on the service, such as an analytics company or advertising network (a “third party cookie”). They will either be stored for the duration of your visit (a “session cookie”) or they will remain on your device for a fixed period, which could be months or even years, to remember you across multiple browsing sessions (a “persistent cookie”).
Tracking Technologies: Web Beacons/Gifs, Pixels, Page Tags, Script
Web pages, emails and Apps may contain a small transparent image file or line of code to record how you interact with them. They are often used in conjunction with web browser cookies (or the identifiers associated with your device), and they are used to help website and app publishers to better analyze and improve their services and to target advertising based on your browsing behavior and interests. For example, by knowing which web pages you visit or which elements of a page you viewed, when and for how long, whether you viewed and/or clicked on an advertisement on a site or whether you opened or clicked on marketing emails sent to you.
Tracking Via the Application
When you use our Application, we and third parties may record unique identifiers associated with your device (such as the device ID, advertising identifiers, or IP address), your activity within the App and your network location. This information may be used to analyze and improve our services, learn how you use our App, and to serve advertising to you.
More information about analytics and advertising is detailed below.
Analytics On Our Services
On our website we may use Google Analytics, and other similar services, to collect statistical information about how our websites are used. They use information such as your IP address, browser type and unique identifiers stored in cookies on your devices to record how you interact with our website.
These analytical services help us to know how many users we have, which parts of our sites are most popular, what browsers and devices are used (so we can maximize compatibility), the country or region where our users are located, and the demographics and interests of our users. This enables us to better understand who is using our site and to ensure we are reaching our target demographic, and to improve and tailor our services accordingly.
Advertising On Our Services and Third-Party Websites
Advertising delivered on other websites and online services and tailored to your individual interests based on your online activities over time, across the devices you may use, and across third-party services, known as interest-based advertising or behavioral advertising, may be served by us or by third parties, and we may allow third parties’ advertisements to be served through the services. We believe this makes the advertising more interesting and useful to you, and also helps us increase the value we get out of the site from our advertisers, ultimately giving us a greater ability to invest in great content for the benefit of all users.
The advertisements served to you on our website and App and on third-party services are sometimes targeted based on your online activities over time and across third party websites and services. As a result, you may see advertising based on website content you have been viewing on another website. For example, a retailer might use information about the products you browsed on their website in order to tailor their advertisement to you on this website. Other times, the advertisements are not tailored or targeted based on your browsing on other websites, but rather simply based on how you use and interact with the services.
Advertisements may come from third party companies called “ad networks.” “Ad networks” include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. Your web browser must request these advertisements from the ad network’s servers, which allows ad networks to view, edit or set their own cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or similar tracking tools on your browser, just as if you had visited a web page from their website.
We may share information collected via cookies and tracking technologies, such as advertising identifiers, to support interest-based advertising. We have implemented or are in the process of implementing the following features based on Google Analytics for Display and Video Advertising: Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, Floodlight, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. These advertising services may track your online activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including cookies first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together
(i) to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on past visits to our website and
(ii) (ii) to report how our ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to our website. This information is not shared with us and we do not share information with the advertiser about your browsing of our website. This is not an exhaustive list. Other third parties, may assist us in delivering interest-based advertisements.
The information collected for interest-based advertising does not contain information that directly identifies you.
You may have a choice about whether to have your information collected for these purposes. See below for details and for information about how to exercise that choice.

That identifier may be used to serve you interest-based advertising.
For Android devices, you can access Ads under your Google account settings to opt out of ads personalization. You may still see advertisements. But they may be less relevant to you.
