We accept advertisements, in various formats (such as banners, interstitials, etc.) from Third Parties ad networks which may be displayed in our mobile apps. Note that if you click on any of these advertisements, the advertisers may use cookies and other tracking technologies (such as tracking pixel agent or visitor identification technology, etc.) to collect data regarding advertisement performance, your interaction with such ads and our apps and your interests (which may include, non personal and/or personal information such as device and network information, unique identifiers, gender, age and geo-location about you) in order to serve you advertisements and for the legitimate business interests of such Third Parties ad networks. We recommend that you review the terms of use and privacy policy of any third party advertisers with whom you are interacting before doing so. Their privacy policy, not ours, will apply to those interactions. In addition, we at our discretion, advertise other apps. Such advertisements are not directed towards specific users but are rather broadly posted to cross promote our other apps.

Cookies and Local Storage

When you access or use the Apps, we and/or our Third parties may use industry-wide technologies such as “cookies”, web beacons and local storage (or other similar technologies), which store certain local information on your device (“Local Storage”) which may enable automatic activations of certain features (such as user preferences), monitoring of use of the Apps (counting Users who visit certain pages, use certain tools, viewed certain advertisements, etc.), frequency capping (for example, not show an ad multiple times after it reaches a certain threshold, etc.) and making the User’s App experience and usage simpler, more relevant, convenient and effortless. Such information is locally stored in the User’s Device. We and/or Third Parties may access such information. Third Parties may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. Such Local Storage used by the apps may store non-personal information as well as User persistent identifier, geo-location data and more. It is easy to prohibit and/or delete the Local Storage using options provided by your device and/or by uninstalling the app from your device. Most browsers and platforms will allow you to erase cookies from a device, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please follow specific instruction provided by the technology provider and/or Third Parties privacy policies to disable and/or erase Local Storage. Your app experience may be affected by this and may be limited.
