‍4. Do we use cookies and other tracking technologies?

We may use cookies and similar tracking technologies (like web beacons and pixels) to access or store information. Specific information about how we use such technologies and how you can refuse certain cookies is set out in our Cookie Notice as provided below.

Cookie Notice

This Cookie Notice applies to our Services and explains how we use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you use or access our Services.

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small files that are placed on your device when you visit a website.  They are widely used for maintaining a website or to improve the efficiency of a website. Website owner also use cookies to provide reporting information. 

In addition, cookies may also be used for supplementary purposes, meaning that when we use certain cookies, such cookies are not used in a way that is necessary for the functioning of our Services. We will seek your consent to place such cookies on your device whenever using such cookies are required by laws. Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent before we place any cookies on your device that are not strictly necessary for the functioning of our Services.

How First Party Cookies Are Different from Third Party Cookies?

First party cookies means the cookies that we set and place on your device for using or accessing our Services. As to third party cookies, those are the cookies that enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through our Services, such as advertising. 

Why Cookies are Used for Our Services?

We use first party cookies to ensure the operation, efficiency and availability of our Services. We thus deem such first party cookies as the necessary component for our rendering of Services. On the other hand, other first and third party cookies allow us to understand the interests of the users and help us improve the Services. Below you can find details of the cookies that we use in connection with our Services:

  1. “Strictly necessary” cookies are the cookies that are required for our Services. In most cases such cookies are set in response to your actions. For example, when you perform any one of the following actions, the cookies will respond: (a) account log-in, (b) subscription for Services and (c) billing or payment.
  2. “Performance” cookies are first party cookies that help us to collect information about how visitors use our Services and allow us to improve.  While performance cookies will remain on your device after you close your browser, we only use the information collected by these cookies in aggregated form, meaning that information relating to you or your device will NOT be identified or used separately or independently. Where permitted by applicable law, we will deploy first party performance cookies automatically when you use our Services. 
  3. “Targeting” cookies means the third party cookies that are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you.  The targeting cookies do not store personal information, but they are capable of identifying your browser and internet device. Please note that advertisement would still be displayed in the event you denied the targeting cookies to be placed.
  4. “Functionality” cookies means the cookies that help our App or Website to recognize and “remember” your information. Examples of the use of such cookies are automatic fill-ins for online forms. The functionality cookies do not track your activity when you are using other websites, and, if you do not allow these cookies to be placed, some features or functions of the App or Website might not work properly. 

What About Other Tracking Technologies, Like Web Beacons?

In general, tools other than cookies might also be used to recognize or track visitors to a website. Certain technologies like web beacons (also called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs") are often used for tracking purposes. Such technologies are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier, by which a website can ascertain its visitors when the visitors use the website or open an e-mail sent by the website. The tracking technologies are mostly used for following purposes: (i) to monitor the traffic patterns of users, (ii) to ascertain whether the user comes from an online advertisement which is shown on a third-party website, (iii) to deliver or communicate with cookies, (iv) to assess e-mail marketing activities, or (v) to improve website performance. These technologies generally require cookies in order to function properly, so any rejection or blocking of cookies might impair the functionality of such technologies.

How do We Use Google Analytics for Our Services?

We use Google Analytics to assess how our Website and App are used by our users. In general, Google Analytics would place first party performance and targeting cookies through our Website or App so that it could recognize such cookies when you visit or access other websites or applications. Google Analytics’ first party performance and targeting cookies will generate your activities or personal information (such as your IP address), and such information, once generated, will be transmitted to and stored by Google on its servers located in the United States. Google will compile the information collected through those cookies and provide a report to us describing your use of our Website or App or other activities associated with such use.

How Can I Control Cookies?

You can decide whether to accept or reject certain or all cookies by changing your web browser settings. In general, you can find out what cookies are placed on your device and delete or block them with the control features provided by browsers. If you choose to delete or block some or all of the cookies placed on your device, you may still use our Website or App, but our Services might be restricted due to such rejection or blocking. Additionally, your preference will be lost when cookies are deleted or rejected, and such loss of saved preference would include your preference to opt-out from cookies because opting out would require an opt-out cookies to function properly. For more information on how to delete or block cookies, please visit your browser’s help menu.

How Often Will You Update This Cookie Notice?

We may update this Cookie Notice from time to time so long as we deem such update adequate or necessary. We may also update this Cookie Notice for changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore revisit this Cookie Notice regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies. If we make material changes to this privacy notice, we may notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes or by directly sending you a notification. The date shown at the top of this Privacy Policy is the date on which this Cookie Notice and the Privacy Policy were last updated.  

‍5. How do we handle your social logins?

Our Services offers you the ability to register and login using your third-party social media account details (e.g., your Google or Apple account). Where you choose to do this, we will receive certain profile information about you from your social media provider. The profile Information we receive may vary depending on the social media provider concerned, but will often include your name, email address, friends list, profile picture as well as other information you choose to make public on such social media platform

We will use the information we receive only for the purposes that are described in this Privacy Policy or that are otherwise made clear to you on the relevant Services.

‍8. How do we keep your information safe?

We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security, and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information.
