1. What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device and uniquely identify your browser or device by website or apps that you visit. When you visit a website or use an app that uses the same cookies or you return to the original website or app that first stored the cookies, these platforms recognize the cookies and your browsing device. For a more thorough explanation of what cookies are and how they work, please visit the EU Guide to Cookies, aboutcookies.org or allaboutcookies.org.
The Platform also uses pixels which are small portions of code. We use pixels to learn whether you have clicked on certain web content and to help us optimize our ad campaigns. This helps us measure and improve the Platform and personalize your experience.
2. Categories of cookies
There are many different types of cookies, including those that let you navigate between pages efficiently, those that remember your preferences, and those that generally improve your user experience. Cookies can tell us, for example,
whether you have visited Platform before or whether you are a new visitor. Cookies can also help to ensure that advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
There are many categories of cookies, including (i) First-party cookies, which are small amounts of text which are served by us directly to your device, and (ii) Third-party Cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf.

They can be used by the websites to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.
