Cookies Notice

Peergame uses tracking technologies to help us develop and advertise our services. Peergame uses cookies, pixels, web beacons, scripts, tags, API, and other tracking technologies on all of our websites. In this notice, all of these technologies will be referred to collectively as cookies.

Cookies are placed on your device to allow us to collect information about you and your online behavior, as well as the device you are using. We do this so that we can improve our performance and customize your experience. We also use this information to collect statistics about our services, perform analytics, deliver content tailored to your interests, and administer services to our Users, advertisers, publishers, customers, and partners. We also allow third parties to collect information about you when they are providing these services to us.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit or another website that recognizes that cookie to develop a record of the user's online activity. Almost all websites use some form of cookies.

Cookies are widely used to make websites work efficiently. They allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remember your preferences, and make the interaction between you and the site smoother and more efficient. They are also used to help ensure that the advertisements you see online are relevant to you and your interests.

Storing cookies

We place cookies when you visit or access our websites. Peergame sets some of these cookies, but we also allow selected third parties to remember cookies on our pages too. These are generally used for analytics, performance, and advertising targeting. While we specify the information these cookies collect and use for the purposes we have engaged these third parties, we do not have control over their further use of the cookies or data gathered from these cookies. Therefore you should review their privacy and cookie policies to understand how they may use your information.

Cookies may be stored either for the duration of your visit to our pages or repeat visits. Certain cookies, session cookies, last for as long as your browser remains open and expire when you close it. Others are known as persistent cookies, which expire at a fixed point in time unless you manually delete them from your browser.

What types of cookies do we use?

There are three main types of cookies:

1. Required Cookies

Cookies may be essential or non-essential. Essential cookies are used solely to carry out or facilitate the transmission of communications over a network or are strictly necessary to provide an online service that you have requested. For instance, strictly necessary cookies are essential to log in and navigate around and use the website.
By law, we do not need to obtain your consent to use these cookies.

2. Functionality Cookies

Functionality cookies allow our websites to remember choices you make and provide enhanced and personalized features. For example, these cookies are used for authentication, recognize when you are logged in, and support our websites' features.
Performance cookies collect information about your online activity, like the duration of your visit to our website, including behavioral data and content engagement metrics. These cookies are used for analytics, research, and to perform statistics, although this is usually based on the aggregated information.

3. Marketing or Advertising Cookies

These are used to deliver tailored offers and advertisements to you based on your derived interests and perform email marketing campaigns. They can also be used to limit the number of times you see an ad and help measure the advertising campaign's effectiveness. They are usually placed by our advertisers and provide them with insights about the people who see and interact with their ads, visit their websites, or use their app.

Consenting to cookies

The first time you visit our pages, you'll be met by a notice which asks you to give us your preferences regarding our use of cookies. You won't be able to avoid this message without providing a preference. You can change your mind at any time by clicking "Cookies Preferences" in the website footer. This will take you to a screen where you can make changes to the cookies you consent to. If you change your preferences, either to give support or withdraw it, this change will be actioned on the next page that you visit. You don't have to tell us your preference every time you visit our site. We will place a cookie that remembers the choices you have selected. This cookie will be set by TrustArc, a third party that helps collect and implement your cookie preferences.

Turning off cookies via your web browser

Most web browsers provide general information about cookies, enable you to see which cookies are stored on your device, allow you to delete them all or on an individual basis, and will allow you to block or allow cookies for all websites or individually selected websites. You can also usually turn off third-party cookies separately. Please note that the settings offered by a browser or device often only apply to that particular browser or device. So you may have to select a preference for each browser or device you use. Information about cookies is usually found in the "Help" section of the web browser.

Google Analytics Opt-Out

To provide website visitors the ability to prevent their data from being used by Google Analytics, Google has developed the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on for the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js). If you want to opt-out, download and install the add-on for your web browser. The Google Analytics opt-out add-on is designed to be compatible with Chrome, Internet Explorer 11, Safari, Firefox, and Opera. To function, the opt-out add-on must be able to load and execute properly on your browser. For Internet Explorer, 3rd-party cookies must be enabled.
