This policy explains how and why we use these technologies and the choices you have. We use "cookies" and "similar technologies" interchangeably to refer to all of these technologies.
Cookies are small text files placed on your computer, phone, or other device when you visit websites and are used to record information about your activity, including the pages you view, the content you listen to, ads you click on, your settings, and other actions you take on the Platform.
Cookies can be "persistent" or "session" cookies. Persistent cookies stay on your device for a set period of time or until you delete them, while session cookies are deleted once you close your web browser.
We use other data collecting technologies with similar functionality as cookies, including pixels. While the specific names and types of cookies we use may change from time to time as we improve and update the Platform, we have provided some basic definitions in order to help you better understand this policy.
- Pixels - A pixel is a small amount of code on a web page or in an e-mail notification that typically work in conjunction with cookies to identify our users and record user behavior. As many services do, we use pixels to learn whether you've interacted with certain web or e-mail content. This helps us measure and improve our services and personalize your experience.
- Software Development Kits - We may use third parties including our service providers and business partners who use mobile SDKs to collect information to recognize your device when you return to the Platform. We may use this technology, for instance, to analyze how you interact with the Platform, including content and advertisements, and to enable analytics or other features through mobile devices.
- Operational - These cookies are necessary to allow us to operate the Platform as you have requested. For example, they let us authenticate your account, so we can provide you with the Platform accordingly.
- Performance/Analytics - We use these cookies to monitor and assess how the Platform is performing and where it can be improved. We also use these cookies to analyse how people access and use our Platform. For instance, we may obtain information about your device and how users engage with the Platform or from e-mail newsletters, including whether you opened or forwarded a newsletter or clicked on any of its content. This information tells us about our newsletters' effectiveness and helps us ensure that we're delivering information you find interesting.
We allow certain service providers to place cookies and similar technologies on the Platform for the same purposes listed above, including collecting information about your online activities over time and across different websites and devices.
For instance, to help us better understand how people engage with the Platform, we work with third party analytics partners, including Google Analytics. To opt out of Google Analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser here.
To control cookies, you can modify your settings in most web browsers to accept or deny cookies or to request your permission each time a site attempts to set a cookie. You can also manually delete previously stored cookies at any time. Please note that if you choose to block cookies, doing so may impair the Platform or prevent certain elements of it from functioning.
If you have a Weemple account, you can adjust the following settings to reflect your choices:
- If you do not want to receive ads or offers, including off of the Platform, you can adjust your settings in the "Settings" page.
- To control whether we collect certain kinds of analytics and usage information through cookies and similar technologies, you can adjust your settings in the "Settings" page.
For more information about analytics cookies and how you can opt out, you can visit the https://youronlinechoices.eu.
Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a "Do Not Track" signal. Because there currently isn't an industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals, we are not configured to respond to them at this time. We await the result of work by the privacy community and industry to determine when such a response is appropriate and what form it should take.
