Cookies Policy Statement
What are “Cookies” and why do we use them?
We may also use other technologies such as web beacons (also called pixels), tracking URLs and software development kits (SDKs) for similar purposes as cookies. Web beacons are files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has accessed content on our Platform. Tracking URLs are unique links that help us understand where visitors to our Platform are coming from. SDKs are small pieces of code included in applications, which function like cookies and web beacons. For the purposes of this Policy, we refer to these technologies collectively as “Cookies”.
They allow us to recognize you and your preferences each time you visit the TruDate Platform. Cookies ensure the functioning of the TruDate App and Website which in turn allows us to provide the services that our Users request and to improve your user experience.
1. Strictly necessary Cookies
These Cookies are necessary for the App and Website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems, or our App and Website will not work properly. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request of services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms, making payments, uploading photographs, or chatting. You can always control the website’s strictly necessary Cookies in your browser, as explained below.
We may use persistent Cookies, which will help us to ensure we have identified that the same device is logging in to the correct account. These types of Cookies also help with our anti-spam measures and help us to prevent phishers, scammers, unauthorized login attempts to your account and accessing any hacked accounts.
Some of these strictly necessary Cookies are from third parties, as some social media platforms can be used as an entry point to register for our services.
2. Analytics Cookies
These Cookies allow us to collect information about how visitors interact with our App and website. We use this information to compile reports and to help measure and improve the performance of the App and website.
TruDate uses Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors use the TruDate Site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the Site or App. The Cookies collect information in an aggregated form, including the number of visitors to the Site or App, where visitors have come to the Site from and the pages they visited.
3. Social Media Cookies
These Cookies help provide experiences, such as links to other social media websites, including making it easier for you to share content between TruDate and your other preferred social networks.
In some cases, the Site feature you choose may allow a third party to place Cookies on your device.
4. Advertising Cookies
These Cookies may be set on our Website and App by us or our advertising partners. They may be used to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on our App and Website or other websites you visit, as well as to improve reporting on any advertising campaign and to avoid showing you ads that you have already seen.
5. Performance Cookies
How long do Cookies last, and can third parties use them?
Cookies last for different periods of time depending on which of the following two categories they fall into:
- Session cookies – these cookies only last as long as your online session, and expire when you close your browser (for example Internet Explorer or Safari).
- Persistent cookies – these cookies stay on your device after your browser has been closed. These cookies are used when we need to remember you for more than one browsing session, for instance to remember your preferences from one visit to the next.
You can control cookies on your devices and may refuse to accept Cookies at any time by managing your preferences in the “Manage Cookies” section of the App or website, or by altering the settings on your internet browser (for example Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox).
When using our App, you are also in control and may refuse to accept Cookies at any time by managing your Privacy Preferences in your Profile in the App (under “Settings” > “Security & Privacy” > “Privacy Settings” on iOS and Android).
Please note that if you choose not to permit Cookies some areas of our App or Website may not function properly or be accessible.
