Overview of cookies and associated technologies
Cookies are small text files stored on your browser or device by websites, applications, online media and advertisements, and are used to store memory of your browser or device during or between visits to websites. We also use other technologies that can identify you or the device you use. For example, pixel tags (also called Beacons) are small blocks of code installed on (or invoked by) web pages, applications, or in advertising that may obtain certain information about your device or browser, including, for example: the type of device, operating system, browser type and version, website visited, referring website, IP address, advertising identifiers, and other similar information, including the small text file (cookie) that uniquely identifies your device. Pixels provide the conditions for third parties to set and read browser cookies from a domain they do not operate themselves, and to collect information about visitors to that domain, usually with the domain owner’s permission. “Local storage” generally means other locations on a browser or device where information can be stored by websites, advertisements, or third parties (such as local HTML5 storage or browser caching). “Software Development Kits” (also called SDKs) work like pixels and cookies, but operate in a mobile application context where pixels and cookies do not always work. The main programmer of the application can install code segments (the SDK) from partners into the application, thus enabling the partner to collect certain information about the user’s interaction with the application and information about the user’s device and network.
Advertising synchronization and relevance
In order to serve ads with the highest possible relevance, WEDE collaborates with various service providers that help deliver similar ads to end users across devices and platforms. For example, we work with social media advertising services to serve you relevant ads based on your activity on WEDE on their communication channels. We may also use service providers to serve you similar ads on websites and mobile applications, as well as ads on conventional websites. Below you will find more information about your options for limiting these types of advertising.

Site features and services
These cookies and pixels are used to serve relevant ads, track email marketing campaigns, or the performance and efficiency of advertising campaigns. For example, we and our ad partners may rely on information collected through these cookies to serve ads that may be of interest to you on other websites. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie, attribution service or other similar technology to determine whether we provide an ad and its performance, or provide us with information about how you interact with it.
