WHAT IS A COOKIE?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites work or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognize you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (e.g., by remembering your user preferences). The types of information typically collected by cookies include information relating to your use of the G2A News, your device’s IP address and browser type, your name and email address if you are logging in, etc.

Cookies come in two main categories, and then a number of sub-categories. The two main categories are persistent and session cookies. Persistent cookies stay on your device for a limited period of time after you have visited the G2A News and are reactivated the next time you visit. Session cookies are deleted from your device when you leave the G2A News .

WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE?

Below we list the different types of cookies used on the G2A News.

Essential Cookies. These cookies are essential to the G2A News in order to enable you to move around them and to use their features. Without these absolutely necessary cookies, certain aspects of the G2A News would not work. No information about your browsing habits is gathered by these cookies.

Functional Cookies. We use functional cookies to remember how you like to use the G2A News and to personalize them accordingly. We can’t identify you personally through the use of these cookies, nor do these cookies track your browsing habits, but they do help us serve you with ads.

Analytics Cookies. Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the G2A News, and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the G2A News, help us record any difficulties you have with the G2A News, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the G2A News, rather than the use of a single person. Some of the analytics cookies we use may be operated by third parties. Accepting analytics cookies is a condition of using the G2A News. By continuing to use the G2A News, you agree we can place analytics cookies on your device. We can’t identify you personally through the use of these cookies; we just use them for statistics.

We use cookies and other technology to collect information about your visit to the G2A News (“Online Data”). We analyse what pages you visit on these sites, what products or services you view, and whether you view or click on ads that are shown to you. We use this information to send you interest-based ads. All such data is also collected anonymously and aggregated with other data we collect and/or similar data collected by third parties to create segments, groups of users, and certain general-interest categories or segments that we have inferred based on (a) demographic or interest data, and a general geographic location derived from your IP address, and (b) the pages you view and links you click when using certain search services. We use this information to get a more accurate picture of audience interests in order to serve ads we believe are more relevant to your interests.

We will engage third party providers to assist with the collection, storage and segmentation of this Online Data, and the providers are required to maintain the confidentiality of this information. These efforts do not result in the collection of personally identifiable information such as name or address, and we do not intentionally collect sensitive data such as financial, health or medical information. This Online Data is retained for not more than 180 days, after which it shall expire. There is an exception for situations in which the same user subsequently visits a G2A News; in that case, the 180 day period will start over.

Some of the cookies on the G2A News are operated by third parties, such as Twitter, YouTube or Facebook. We do not control these third parties or their use of cookies. This means it is not possible for us to manage these cookies. Please check the websites of those third parties for details on how they use cookies.

Flash Cookies. We may, in certain situations, use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content, such as video clips or animation. To improve your user experience, Local Shared Objects (commonly known as “Flash cookies”) are employed to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on your device, but they are managed through an interface different from the one provided by your web browser. This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies at the browser level, in the same way you would manage cookies. Instead, you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s website directly. The Adobe website provides comprehensive information on how to delete or disable Flash cookies—see Adobe’s website for further information. Please be aware that if you disable or reject Flash cookies for this website, you may not be able to access certain features, such as video content or services that require you to sign in.
