Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or other device. Pixels are small blocks of code on webpages and in emails that do things like allow another server to measure viewing of a webpage and often are used in connection with cookies. Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or app to store and retrieve data on a person's computer, mobile phone or other device.
What are cookies and similar technologies used for?
We and our agents use these technologies to do things like, make Neareo's Services easier or faster to use, enable features and store information about you (including on your device or in your browser cache) and your use of the Services; monitor and understand the use of our products and services; and to protect you, others and Neareo. We and our agents use these technologies to deliver, understand and improve advertising to users of Neareo's Services on behalf of Neareo and others (such as for entities that have Neareo's sponsored or promoted products) on the Neareo apps and websites and on other websites that you visit, based on your activity on the Services.
• Advertising - We may work with advertisers or other partners and advertising service providers 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 Neareo 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 consult the privacy policies of our advertisers, partners and advertising service providers to understand how they collect and use your data.
Can cookies be turned off?
Most web browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. For more information about cookies and how to refuse them, click here. Also, 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 from our advertising partners, click here or click here. Also, certain versions of the iOS operating system permit you to "Limit Ad Tracking" in the system settings and certain versions of the Android operating system allow you to "Opt out of Interest-Based Ads" in the system settings. At this time we do not honor Do Not Track (“DNT”) 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.
