Cookies policy

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. We use cookies and similar technologies such as Pixels (collectively referred to in this Policy as “cookies”) to collect and use data as part of our Platform, as defined in our Privacy Policy.



Why do we need to use cookies?

Without a cookie, every time you open a new web page the server where that page is stored would treat you like a completely new visitor. This could get pretty annoying for you as a user and would make our sites completely unusable. A cookie works like a key to this effect, it helps us to give you a swift user experience, remembers the choices you make around your account settings, preferences and ensures we don’t display the same messages to you repeatedly.

You can use this page to manage your preferences related to the cookies and similar technologies we use on our Platform. Please note that the preferences defined on this page only apply to our Website. You can manage your preferences on our Android and iOS app separately, from the app settings. While you may disable the usage of cookies through your browser settings, please note that we do not change our practices in response to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from your browser or mobile application, due to lack of standardization regarding how that signal should be interpreted.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These are cookies that are necessary for the Platform to function as well as to operate our business. These are used to let you login, stay logged in, measure our traffic (anonymously) and to ensure site security. Without this type of technology, our Services won't work properly or we won't be able to provide certain features and functionalities.
