For automatic data collection, CGS uses tracking pixels, web beacons, and cookies to collect information. CGS may use these technologies either alone or in conjunction with each other.
Like cookies, the local storage technology allows websites to store information on a computer or mobile device. Local storage is typically persistent and, unlike cookies, data in local storage is not automatically transferred over the internet every time when the website is visited that stored the data.
The mobile advertising ID is a unique identifier (ID) set by the operating system of your mobile device. This ID is shared with apps that you install on your device and which may contain advertisements. Most devices allow apps to access the Mobile Advertiser ID by default. You may, however, be able to change your device settings to prevent your device from sharing this ID with apps. Check your operating systems' "Help" section to learn more about handling Mobile Advertising IDs. On Android, Advertising means the Android Advertising ID, on iOS devices it means the ID for Advertiser (IDFA).
We refer to cookies, web beacons, local storage and the mobile advertising ID together as “cookies and similar technologies”.
Most cookies fall into one or more of the following categories:
- Strictly necessary: These types of cookies are essential to provide services specifically requested by website visitors. Without them, websites cannot function or deliver the requested services.
- Performance: These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, such as which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and if users encounter error messages from web pages. These cookies allow us to provide a high-quality user-experience, as well as measure audience of the Website pages. The information collected by these cookies does not identify users. They are designed to help improve how our website works.
- Functionality: These cookies remember choices that you make so as to improve your experience.
- Targeting and advertising cookies: These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They may also be placed by third party social media websites to enable interaction with you (such as where we provide Facebook Like and Share buttons); they collect data on the interests of users and are used by the third party social media service to serve targeted advertising to its users when logged into its services
