Cookie Policy

If you use our news site (“you,” “data subject,” “user,” “member”), then know that our company (“we,” “us,” “Our News Site”) values your right to privacy on the internet. When you use or view any Our News site, or application that links to this Policy (collectively, the “Sites”), cookies and other similar technologies may be stored on, and accessed from your device, as described in this Cookie Policy. Please review our Privacy Policy and Conditions of Service in conjunction with this Cookie Policy. When you use Our News Site, mobile sites, or mobile applications (collectively “the services”), we may use various technologies, including cookies, tags, and more. It’s necessary to use cookies to give everyone the best experience available. Cookies also aid in keeping your account information secure. You agree to our use of cookies and similar technologies for the reasons outlined in this Policy if you continue to visit or use our services. Stop using our site/app if you don’t want to receive cookies or web beacons, or check your browser and third-party cookie settings as outlined below.

Cookies and other tracking technologies: what exactly are they?

A cookie is a tiny piece of text stored in your browser by a website or mobile app you visit and then sent back to the website or app with each subsequent request from your browser. A cookie is a small text file that a website stores in your web browser’s memory to identify you as a returning user and tailor the experience to your preferences. The cookies on Our News Site act as a user’s passport to faster page loads and improved system performance. Using these cookies, Our News Site can enhance the quality of its service and make your time here more enjoyable. To aid us in delivering cookies, counting visits, understanding usage and campaign efficacy, and identifying whether or not an email has been opened and acted upon, we may employ web beacons, tags, and scripts on the Websites and in such emails. Utilizing these technologies, we can conduct analysis and produce reports on an individual and aggregate level.

Depending on their purpose, cookies can be “session” or “permanent” cookies. With a permanent cookie, we can tell when you’ve visited Our News Site before, making it convenient to use our services without logging in again. A persistent cookie is stored in your browser and reads by Our News Site and any of our sites, apps, or any partner site that uses our services after logging in. Sessions cookies are temporary and expire at the end of the user’s session (typically the current visit to a website/application or the browser session).

Other tracking technologies are very similar to cookies in that they either place small data files on your devices or track your website/mobile application behavior to help us learn more about how our users interact with our services. Because of this, our sites and apps can tell your computer or mobile phone apart from everyone else’s. Details about cookies and similar tracking technologies are given below.

Can you explain how cookies and other tracking tools are used on our websites and mobile apps?

Cookies and other monitoring technologies are used on our News Site to learn more about you and the content you’re most interested in, store your preferences, and analyze how you use the site. In addition to using cookies and other tracking technologies to show you advertisements and process any requests you make, we use them to control access to particular material on our website, keep it secure, and protect it.

Our News Site has outsourced traffic data collection to third-party service providers to manage the site better and conduct research. These third-party service providers use persistent cookies to help us enhance the user experience, collect content, and analyze site usage.

This is how we classify cookies:

Each cookie can be placed in one of the four main groups:

1. Essential CookiesStrictly necessary cookies refer to the essential cookies (First Party Cookies) required for the website’s operation and the provision of its features and services. Essential cookies, for instance, keep track of your selections as you browse the site.
2. Analytics CookiesTo help us enhance the Our News Site and compile performance data, we use a standard technology called “cookies.” Examine user and visitor patterns to tailor material and recommendations. They track how often and for how long people use the site, where they arrived before clicking through, and how long they spend on the site overall. We may use analytics cookies to try out new advertisements, pages, or features and see how users respond.
3. Functionality or Preference CookiesCookies are small text files stored on your computer to help the website recall information about your visit, such as your user name, language preference, and location. In addition, cookies allow you to get the most out of Our News Site by remembering your choices when you tailor the site to your interests. By using persistent cookies, your settings will be saved so that you don’t have to adjust them on each subsequent visit to the site manually.
4. Targeting or Advertising CookiesYou may see advertisements on the Website that are more pertinent to you based on your activities (sometimes referred to as “behavioral” tracking or “targeted advertising”) because of cookies placed on your browser by third-party advertising platforms or networks. In the future, they may use the data gathered from your time on the Our News Site and other sites to provide you with more relevant advertisements. These cookies, for instance, keep track of the browsers that have viewed the Website in the past. Primarily, these cookies can gather personal information by following a user’s activity via their Device ID or IP address.
5. Third party CookiesWhen you browse our website, third-party vendors, such as Google Analytics, may also place cookies on your device at our request so that they can deliver targeted advertising within their domains. To give you a chance to decide whether or not to approve these cookies, we do our best to inform you beforehand. Cookies used by the relevant third party may gather personal data. Still, they can only directly identify you as an individual with additional information (such as your name, email address, or phone number).

When Our News Site sets cookies, you’ll know.

All of our online and mobile apps utilize cookies. We send “cookies” to any computer that visits our site so that we can recognize you faster on your next visit. We will not monitor your activity across the Internet using “cookies” or other tracking mechanisms. Still, we will use such tools to learn which parts of our website are most popular with visitors.

The function of cookies in web statistics.

We may use tools like Google Analytics for our Services regarding web statistics. Services like these allow us to conduct in-depth user analytics, such as tracking the website from which you came. These service providers will either have access to or independently gather the data collected by the technology; they will then use this data to assess how you interact with the Services. As you will see below, we also use Google Analytics for a few things in our web advertising strategy.

What role do cookies play in online advertising?

Cookies and other ad technologies like beacons, pixels, and tags allow us to serve you with relevant advertisements better. They also let us know when content has been shown to you and help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for marketers. We collaborate with website analytics and advertising partners to deliver advertisements for Our News Site on third-party publisher sites. These partners may place cookies on your device’s web browser. By recognizing your device, our ad server can give you ads for Our News Site when you visit other websites, and our analytics software can track how often and in what ways you interact with Our News Site’s services. This allows ad servers to collect non-personally identifying information about where our ads were viewed, whether or not they were engaged with, and what users did when they went on to explore more of Our News Site and its associated apps after seeing our ads. We use this data to improve our advertising efforts’ effectiveness and enhance the user experience on Our News Site by displaying more relevant advertisements to your interests.

What kinds of cookies does Our News Site use, and who provides them?

Be aware that other parties (advertising networks and external service providers like web traffic monitoring services) may also use cookies on our Services. It’s essential to remember that the terms used to describe cookies, pixels, and other technologies may evolve.

To help us serve to advertise, we work with reputable third parties who may set cookies on your browser or device. We also incorporate external social media material, like Facebook feeds, into our pages. Social networks like Facebook, Google, etc., may also drop cookies on your browser. A cookie will be left on the user’s computer if they log in to Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ through our site. The procedure is identical to signing in to these services manually.

In addition, we employ Google Analytics to study how our users interact with our Services. Google Analytics can monitor user activity through performance cookies. For instance, Google can tell us which pages on our website are the most popular, what time of day our website is most frequently viewed, whether or not a visitor has been to our website before, and what website referred the visitor to our website, all by using cookies to track this data. This data has been anonymized completely.

Since we can’t always guarantee the security of information provided to us by outside parties (also known as “third party” cookies), we recommend reading the privacy rules of any such external services you use.

  • Once again, please explain what Web Beacons are.

Sometimes, we will place ads on other websites unrelated to our News Service. Web beacons and action tags are two forms of visitor-identifying technology that we may employ on Our Site to keep tabs on how many people clicked on a banner ad for Our News Site on another website and then clicked through to Our Site. This technology is not used to access any personally identifiable information about you. Instead, it is compiled as aggregate data about visitors to Our Site to evaluate the efficacy of our advertising.

Your use of Our Site constitutes your consent to our use of such tracking technologies as cookies and web beacons. Stop using Our Site or check your browser’s options if you don’t want to be tracked using a web tracker.

  • Is there a way to disable cookies?

You can manage cookies through your browser’s options in most cases. Even if you disable these cookies, the internet will still show you advertisements, but they may not be relevant. To clarify, this does not guarantee that you will not see any ads while using the internet. This list is not exhaustive and is open to change; however, it does include most of the third parties involved in targeting or advertising cookies on our news site. Consequently, you may still receive personalized advertisements and recommendations even if you disable all third-party cookies mentioned in the section (What third-party cookies does Our News Site use).

You can control which cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device in several methods. However, you are unable to turn off the necessary data. A website’s functionality, features, and services may be hindered or rendered unavailable if you disable the installation of certain cookies.

Your online browser’s privacy settings are another place to manage these cookies. If you configure your browser to refuse all cookies, some features of ours and other sites may not work correctly. For details, please read on.
