Last Updated: May 28, 2021
3TLD LLC (collectively, “N’Gale ”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) understands that your privacy is important to you and we are committed to being transparent about the technologies that we use.
What are Cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or other device. They are generally used to remember you and your preferences, for one visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple visits (using a “persistent cookie”). Cookies may be set by N’Gale (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as companies who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on N’Gale Services (“third party cookies”).
Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as web beacons or pixels. Web beacons and pixels are small blocks of code on webpages and in emails that enable N’Gale to perform analytics, and are often used in connection with cookies. Web beacons and pixels are not stored in the same ways as cookies. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
We use five (5) types of cookies. They are: Strictly Necessary, Functional, Performance, Targeting/Advertising and social media. See below for our classification of cookies that we use on our platforms.
Authentication – to recognize you if you are logged in to our Services, so that we can show you the right information, understand how you use the Services and personalize your experience.
Security – to support or enable security features we have deployed, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our Terms of Service. We do this to protect you, N’Gale and third parties.
Preferences, features and services – to know which language you prefer, what your communications preferences.
Advertising – We may work with advertisers or other partners and advertising service providers like The Trade Desk, LiveRamp, Google, Xandr to serve ads or services that may be relevant to you based on your inferred interests or location (or both) to computers, mobile phones or other devices, which may use a device ID, cookie, pixel or other similar technology placed by N’Gale or the third party (although we would not share any other information that identifies you with an advertiser) on our Services, or on a third party website or app. The placing of these cookies, pixels or other technologies on your device may enable you to be identified across multiple websites and you should review our Privacy Policies and the privacy policies of our advertisers, partners and advertising service providers to understand how they collect and use your data.
Attribution – We may work with advertisers or other partners to help them determine the effectiveness of an advertising campaign by providing them with pixels that they place on their websites or advertisements.
Can cookies be turned off?
Most web browsers have an option to customize your cookie settings. You can permission your settings to block all cookies, or only third-party cookies.
Other ways to limit interest-based advertising?
Google has developed a web browser plugin to allow you to opt-out of Google Analytics’ tracking software. For information about how to opt out of receiving behavioral advertisements outside of N’Gale’s apps and websites from our advertising partners click here.
Please note that when you opt out of interest-based ads, you will still see ads, but they will no longer be based on your interests or behavior. In addition, we may also continue to collect, use and transfer browser data for purposes other than interest-based advertising and ad delivery/reporting, as described in our Privacy Policies.
At this time, we do not honor Do Not Track (“DNT”) browser signals. Please be aware that limiting the ability of websites to set cookies, however, may worsen your overall user experience, and in some cases the Services will not work properly without cookies, local storage and similar technologies.
