1.WHAT ARE COOKIES?

As described in our Privacy Policy, we collect information in a few ways, one of which is cookies. A cookie is a small data file that is sent to your device’s (computer, tablet or mobile phone) web browser when you first visit a website and is stored on your device hard drive. Cookies usually include an identification number that is unique to the device you are using. Such identifier can help to track on-line traffic flow, to better understand our users and how they are using the Services, their level of engagement and general preferences. Cookies also enable recognition of users when they re-visit the Services, keeping their settings and preferences and ability to offer customized features and a more personalized web experience.

Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies.

Please remember that you can change your cookies settings at any time to control cookies placement through limiting or forbidding our or our customers website to place cookies on your device and to disable unwanted cookies already stored on your device, by changing your browser’s settings, as explained below under “Users Choices”.

3.THE TYPES OF COOKIES USED ON OUR SITE

We use both session and persistent cookies on the Services and we may use different types of cookies to run the Services, as follows:

Strictly necessary cookies – these cookies are necessary for the Services to function properly, to improve security and to prevent fraudulent activity and cannot be switched off in our systems.

Analytics and Performance-related cookies – these cookies allow us to assess and improve the performances of our Services, including improving the campaigns offered through our Services. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic geographic sources and prevent over exposure of a campaign. The data collected is not shared with any other party. The information we get through the use of these cookies is anonymized and we make no attempt to identify you or influence your experience of the Services. If you do not allow these cookies, the loss of the information stored in a preference cookie may make the Service experience less functional but should not prevent it from working. In addition, we will not be able to include your visit in our statistics. If you have used a Do Not Track browser setting, we take this as a sign that you do not want to allow these cookies, and they will be blocked.
