By using cookies, we are able to understand what is of interest to our customers and ensure the content and services we offer are relevant and compelling when you visit our Services. In some cases, we may use the personal information we collect from cookies to deliver relevant and compelling content to you when you visit the Services.

For example, our apps may include third-party SDKs, which are codes that send information about your use to a server, and are in effect the app version of a pixel. These SDKs allow us to track our conversions, bring you advertising both on and off the Service, and provide you with additional functionality.

Can You Opt Out?

In most cases, yes! There are some cookies that we need in order to operate the Services. If you deleted those cookies, the Services would no longer function (as an example, if we can't remember what account you belong to, we cannot show you your information on the Services). You can always decide to opt-out of or delete the third party cookies (cookies set by advertisers and data partners) on our Services.
