1. What information do we collect?
1.1 Functional Cookies:
These Cookies ensure that the App operates properly. They are used to save preferences, detect misuse of the App and to distribute the load on our servers, which keeps our Platform available. Certain services you requested cannot be provided without these Cookies.
Web statistics Cookies: these Cookies are used to determine which parts of our Platform visitors are most interested in. This enables us to make the structure, navigation, and content of our Platform as user-friendly as possible. Specifically, these Cookies are used to (i) keep track of the number of visitors to our Platform; (ii) keep track of the amount of time each user spends on our Platform; (iii) determine the order in which a visitor visits the various pages or parts of our Platform; (iv) assess which parts of the Platform need to be changed; and (v) optimise the Platform. Software from third parties (Google Analytics and Optimizely) may be used for these purposes.
Google Analytics uses "performance cookies" to analyse how you use the Platform. The information generated by the Cookie about your use of the Platform (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers.
1.2 Feedback Cookies:
These Cookies are used to share your ideas, questions, ratings, problems and feedback with the Company via the App.
1.3 Advertising Cookies:
The Company may also enable third-party tracking mechanisms to collect data, such as the User’s device ID, over time and across unaffiliated websites or applications for use in interest-based advertising. For example, third parties may use the fact that the User visited the website(s) or application(s) to target online ads for our products and services to you on third party websites or applications. In addition, our third-party advertising partners might use information about the User’s use of the App to help target third-party advertisements based on your online behaviour in general.
The Company or our third-party service providers also may use collected information to establish connections among related web browsers and devices for targeted advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes. These third parties may match the User’s browsers or devices if the User logs into the same online service on multiple devices or if the User’s devices share similar attributes that support an inference that they are used by the same person or household. This means that information about the User’s activity on websites or applications on your current browser or device may be combined with information collected from your other browsers or devices.
