What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that a website can save to your computer or mobile device when you visit a page or site. The cookie will help the site or other sites to recognise your device the next time you visit it. Web beacons or other similar files can do the same. We use the term cookies in this policy to name all files that collect information in this way.
Cookies perform many different functions. For example, they help us remember your username or preferences, analyse how well our site performs, or even allow us to recommend content that we think will be relevant for you.
Some cookies contain personal information – for example, if you clicked “Remember me” when you logged in to your account, the cookie will remember your username. Most cookies do not collect information that can identify you, but rather collect general information about how users access and use our sites or what their location is.
What cookies does brand-network.me use?
In general, cookies split into 4 groups depending on the functions they perform:
- Important cookies
Some cookies are strictly necessary for the functioning of our website. For example, we use these cookies:
- to identify the authenticity of users who are registered, as well as those who are our paid subscribers;
- so that we can fulfil our requirements for using the site and maintain the security of our services. If a user of the website decides to stop these cookies, she/he will not have access to the content available only for subscribers.
- Cookies related to the effectiveness of the website
We use other cookies to analyse how visitors use our website and to monitor the performance of our website. This allows us to offer you a high-quality experience by customising the content offered and quickly identifying and resolving various issues.
- Functional cookies
Functional cookies allow us to remember your preferences, such as font size and other personal settings. For example, cookies save you the time and effort of entering a username every time you visit our website.
- Behaviourally targeted advertising cookies
We may use third-party cookies to assist us in researching the market, tracking revenue, improving functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.
Advertisers sometimes use their cookies to show you targeted ads. For example, advertisers may use a profile based on websites you’ve previously visited to show you more relevant ads when you visit brand-network.me. We believe it’s useful for our users to see ads that target their specific interests.
