    security and integrity reasons – for example to detect violation of our
    policies and for support or security features. 
  • Functionality Tracking Technologies
    These Tracking Technologies allow our Services to remember choices you make
    (such as your language) and provide enhanced and personalized features. For

    when you are logged-in) and support other features of our Services.

  • Marketing or Advertising Tracking Technologies
    These Tracking Technologies are used to deliver tailored offers and
    advertisements to you, based on your derived interests, as well as to perform
    email marketing campaigns. They can also be used to limit the number of times
    you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the
    advertising campaign. They are usually placed by our advertising partners on
    our Brand Websites and provide them insights about the people who see and
    interact with their ads, visit their websites or use their app. 
  • Social media Tracking Technologies
    These Tracking Technologies include social media features, such as the Facebook
    “Like” or “Share” buttons, or third party log-in services.
    These features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our
    Services on the websites. Your interactions with these features are governed by
    the privacy statement of the company providing these features.


We store Tracking Technologies when you visit or access our Services. These are called “First Party Tracking Technologies”.
In addition, Tracking Technologies are stored by other third parties (for example our analytics service providers, business partners and advertisers) –
these are called “Third Party Tracking Technologies”.

Both types of Tracking Technologies may be stored either for the duration of your visit on our Services or for repeat visits.


There are various ways in which you can manage and control your cookie settings. Please remember that, by deleting or blocking cookies, some of the features of the Services may not work properly or as effectively.
