Cookie Policy

Last Updated 13 September 2020.

This Cookie Policy describes the cookies and similar technologies that are used on the Platform. We encourage you to read this Cookie Policy carefully to learn how we use these technologies and your options.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

Our cookies and similar technologies have different functions. They are either necessary for the functioning of our Platform, help us improve our performance, give you extra functionalities, or help us to serve you relevant and targeted ads. We use cookies and similar technologies that only remain on your computer, tablet, mobile phone, or other devices (referred to collectively as a “device”) for as long as you keep your browser active, and cookies and similar technologies that remain on your device for a longer period. You are free to block, delete, or disable these cookies if your device permits so. You can manage your cookies and your cookie preferences in your browser or device settings.

Like most Platforms, we use technologies that are similar to small data files placed on your device allowing us to record certain pieces of information whenever you visit or interact with our Platform.

The specific names and types of the cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies we use may change from time to time. In order to help you better understand this Cookie Policy and our use of such technologies we have provided the following limited terminology and definitions:

  • Cookies – Small text files (typically made up of letters and numbers) placed in the memory of your browser or device when you visit a website or view a message. Cookies allow a website to recognize a particular device or browser. There are several types of cookies:
    a. Session cookies expire at the end of your browser session and allow us to link your actions during that particular browser session.
    b. Persistent cookies are stored on your device in between browser sessions, allowing us to remember your preferences or actions across multiple sites.
    c. First-party cookies are set by the site you are visiting.
    d. Third-party cookies are set by a third-party site separate from the site you are visiting.

  • Web beacons – Small graphic images (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) that may be included on our Platform, that typically work in conjunction with cookies to identify our users and user behaviour.

  • Similar technologie – Technologies that store information in your browser or device utilising local shared objects or local storage, such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software methods. These technologies can operate across all of your browsers, and in some instances may not be fully managed by your browser and may require management directly through your installed applications or device. We do not use these technologies for storing information to target advertising to you on or off our Platform.

We may use the terms “cookies” or “similar technologies” interchangeably in our policies to refer to all technologies that we may use to store data in your browser or device or that collect information or help us identify you in the manner described above.

Our Use of Cookies and Similar Technologies

Generally, these technologies allow our Platform to store relevant information in your browser or device and later read that information in order to identify you to our servers or internal systems. Where applicable, we protect our cookies and other similar technologies to help ensure that only we and/or our authorised service providers can interpret them by assigning them a unique identifier that is designed for interpretation only by us. We do not store any of your personal information on any of our cookies or other similar technologies.

Any personal information that we collect and store through use of these technologies is first obtained through notice and consent. We obtain your consent by providing you with transparent notice of use of the technologies and providing you with the opportunity to make a choice to disable these technologies as set forth above.

Our uses of such technologies fall into the following general categories:

  • Operationally Necessary. We may use cookies, web beacons, or other similar technologies that are necessary to the operation of our Platform. This includes technologies that allow you access to our Platform, or that are required to identify irregular Platform behaviour, prevent fraudulent activity and improve security.

  • Performance Related. We may use cookies, web beacons, or other similar technologies to assess the performance of our Platform, including as part of our analytic practices to help us understand how our visitors use our Platform, or determine if you have interacted with our messaging, determine whether you have viewed an item or link, or to improve our Platform.

Use of These Technologies by Authorised Third-Party Service Provider

We may work with third-party companies, commonly known as service providers, who are authorised to place third-party cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies for storing information on our Platform with our permission. These service providers help us to provide you with a better, faster, and safer experience.

These service providers may use these technologies to help us deliver our own content and advertising, and compile anonymous Platform metrics and analytics. We do not permit any of these service providers to collect any of your personal information on our Platform for their own purposes. These service providers are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions on their use or collection of any personal information. Third-party cookies are covered by the third-parties’ privacy policy.
