Friend2Friend Cookies Policy

Last Updated: November 16, 2015

How Friend2Friend uses cookies

A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.

We use cookies for many purposes. We use them, for example, to remember your preferences, to count how many visitors we receive to a page, to help you sign up for our services and to protect your data.

Types of cookies used by Friend2Friend

We use different types of cookies to run Friend2Friend websites and products. Some or all of the cookies identified below may be stored in your browser. You can view and manage cookies in your browser.

Type of Cookies Description
Preferences

These cookies allow our websites and products to remember information that changes the way the site behaves or looks, such as your preferred language or the region you are in. For instance, by remembering your region, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news. These cookies can also assist you in changing text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can personalize.

Loss of the information stored in a preference cookie may make the website experience less functional, but should not prevent it from working.

Security

We use security cookies to authenticate users, prevent fraudulent use of login credentials, and protect user data from unauthorized parties.

Processes

Process cookies help make the website work and deliver services that the website visitor expects, like navigating around web pages or accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, the website cannot function properly.

Advertising

We use cookies to make advertising more engaging to users and more valuable to publishers and advertisers. Some common applications of cookies are to select advertising based on what’s relevant to a user; to improve reporting on campaign performance; and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen.

Session State

Websites often collect information about how users interact with a website. This may include the pages users visit most often, and whether users get error messages from certain pages. We use these so-called ‘session state cookies’ to help us improve our services, in order to improve our users’ browsing experience. Blocking or deleting these cookies will not render the website unusable.

These cookies may also be used to anonymously measure the effectiveness of PPC (pay per click) and affiliate advertising.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a tool that helps website and app owners to understand how their visitors engage with their properties. It may use a set of cookies to collect information and report website usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors. The main cookie used by Google Analytics is the ‘__ga’ cookie.

3rd Party Cookies

We sometimes use service providers to help us provide certain products and services. As part of those services, a provider may use a pixel to collect information about your interest in a particular page or product.

When you view, click or otherwise interact with an ad or app on or off Friend2Friend, our partners may also use cookies, pixels or similar technologies (like local storage or information from your device), to help provide you with relevant services and ads. For example, a partner may use cookies, software developer kits (SDKs) or similar technologies to customize your experience while you’re using their app. Our partners also may use these technologies to help share information with our Services, like how you use their website or app.

We or others (like the owners of the Facebook Pages or apps you visit or use) may integrate third party features like maps or videos to provide you with better services. The providers of those integrations may collect information when you view or use them, including information about you and your device or browser. They may do this using Cookies or similar technologies. To learn more about the information they collect or receive, review their privacy policies.

Managing cookies in your browser

Some people prefer not to allow cookies, which is why most browsers give you the ability to manage cookies to suit you.

In some browsers you can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, giving you more fine-grained control over your privacy. What this means is that you can disallow cookies from all sites except those that you trust. See the instructions for managing cookies in:
