Cookies and Related Technologies
You are at liberty to manage these cookies and other technologies in your web browser. But do note that you may not get the best of experience when you disable cookies because access to certain functions or features on the Website or Service may be limited. Our system automatically serves cookies when you visit our Websites, except you have set your browser to reject them.
It is also possible to activate a “Do Not Track” feature in some web browsers to preventing tracking of your online activities. However, because we seek to provide tailored experience for our users, we may ignore all “Do Not Track” signals.
We make use of temporary or session cookies that only remain valid for the duration of time you keep your web browser open. We also issue persistent cookies that are stored on your hard drive until they either expire or you remove them. The length of time persistent cookies remain on your device or browser depends on how long individual websites program them to last or be stored.
For us, cookies serve diverse purposes. These include helping us to personalize content, keep track of your consent for services, and serving targeted advertisements.
We may allow third-party partners to collect personal information of users, but subject to relevant laws and with their consent. Third parties may be allowed to passively collect personal information for purposes of behavioral advertising. Examples of these include:
Ad retargeting – Our advertising partners may rely on observed behavior of users on the Websites to serve you ads when you visit other websites. This is with a view to providing you with a personalized experience and with information you may have interest in.
The use of mobile analytics software helps us to have more information on how our Apps work on your devices. This may take record of point of download, things that happen within the applications, how often you use the applications, performance data, and aggregated usage information. The information we obtain is anonymized. We do not associate personal information you supply within the Apps with any information the analytics software collects.
Occasionally, we send push notifications to your devices to keep you up to date about latest events or promotions we may be having. We will need to gather certain device information, including user identification information and operating system, to ensure you get the right notifications. This may require permissions to access your camera and photos in some cases.
You are at liberty to stop these notifications if you do not wish to receive them by turning them off or blocking them on your device. You can also withdraw the permissions you might have given for access to your camera and photos if you are no longer comfortable with them.
We also collect location information, such as city and zip code, but only within our Apps. This is for the purpose of matching users based on their locations. You can opt-out by filling our rights request form or by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not want your location information shared this way in our Apps.
