COOKIES ON OUR WEBSITES
"Cookies" are data files that are stored on your browser or device and are used to remember user preferences and behaviors over time. Cookies allow us to recognize your device and remember information, such as your preferred language and other general settings.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, MetaRail) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Our Websites use both first party and third-party cookies.
First Party Cookies
First party cookies on our Websites are used for a variety of reasons, including purposes which may be strictly necessary for our Websites to function properly. Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver our Websites, we do not seek consent for such uses.
Our third-party partners or service providers may employ other tracking technologies like clear gifs (sometimes called "web Beacons" or "tracking pixels"), that are pieces of code that can be embedded on websites and can be used to learn how you interact with that website. Clear gifs help us better manage content on our Websites by informing us what content is effective. We also use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functionality.
Industry opt-out pages. The online advertising industry provides websites from which you may opt out of interest-based advertising from the MetaRail and other companies that participate in self-regulatory programs. The US-based opt out pages are www.aboutads.info/choices and www.networkadvertising.org/choices. The European based page is www.youronlinechoices.com. In Canada, use youradchoices.ca/choices.
For mobile apps. You can opt out of the MetaRail using information about your usage of mobile apps that are targeted to your interests by using your device settings, for most devices. We are not able to directly access the Mobile App optout on devices that offer it. To learn how to use the mobile app opt out, consult your device instructions.
