What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a site and allow a site to recognize your device.
Cookies do a lot of different jobs, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Some of the cookies we use don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. For example –
- Performance cookies (see below)
- Targeting cookies (see below) where you are not a registered user
In other cases we can associate cookie information (including information from cookies placed via our advertisements on third party sites) with an identifiable individual. For example:
- If we send you a targeted email which includes web beacons, cookies or similar technologies we will know whether you open, read, or delete the message.
- When you click a link in a newsletter, campaign or marketing e-mail you receive from GAN, we will also use a cookie to log what pages you view and what content you download from our websites, even if you are not registered at or signed into our site.
Do you use any cookies from third party companies?
Some cookies we use are from third party companies, such as Google Analytics, WIX, Mailchimp, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Linkedin Analytics to provide us with web analytics and intelligence about our sites and social media. These companies use programming code to collect information about your interaction with our sites, such as the pages you visit, the links you click on and how long you are on our sites. This code is only active while you are on a GAN website. For more information on how these companies collect and use information on our behalf, please refer to their privacy policies directly: Google, WIX and Mailchimp, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin
Does GAN use any non-cookie tracking technologies?
We may also use web beacons (including conversion pixels) or other technologies for similar purposes as above and we may include these on our sites, in marketing e-mail messages or our newsletter, affiliated websites, to determine whether messages have been opened and links clicked on. Web beacons do not place information on your device, but they may work in conjunction with cookies to monitor website activity. The information provided below about cookies also applies to web beacons and similar technologies. Conversion pixels are small codes located on a particular web page which are triggered when someone visits a page resulting in an increase in the conversion count.
