Collide uses technologies in our Collide Services to collect information that helps us improve your online experience. In this Cookie Policy, we refer to these technologies, which include cookies, pixels, web beacons, and GIFs (collectively, “Cookies”). This policy explains the different types of Cookies used in the Collide Services and how you can control them. We may change this Cookie Policy at any time; please take a look at the “Last Updated” legend at the top of this page to see when this Cookie Policy was last revised. Any changes in this Cookie Policy will become effective when we make the revised Cookie Policy available on or through the Collide Services.

By using the Collide Services and viewing the cookie notice that appears on the Collide Services, you agree that we can store and access Cookies as described in this policy.

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 function, or function 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 you use of a website more convenient (e.g., by remembering your user preferences).

What Cookies Do We Use?

Below we list the different types of Cookies we may use in the Collide Services:

Essential Cookies: These Cookies are essential to the operation of our website in order to enable you to move around it and to use its features. Without these Cookies, services you have asked for, such as accessing secure areas of the website or paid for content, cannot be provided. These Cookies are essential for using the website and therefore cannot be turned off without severely affecting your use of the website.

Performance Cookies: These Cookies, which often include analytics Cookies, collect information about your use of the Collide Services and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, performance Cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the website, allow us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Collide Services, help us record any difficulties you have with the Collide Services and show us whether our advertising is effective or not.

Functionality Cookies: In some circumstances, we may use functionality Cookies. These Cookies allow us to remember the choices you make on the Collide Services and to provide enhanced and more personalized features, such as customizing a certain webpage, remembering if we have asked you to participate in a promotion and for other services you request, like watching a video or commenting on a blog. All of these features help us to improve your visit to the Collide Services.

Targeting or Advertising Cookies: We and our service providers may use targeting or advertising Cookies to deliver ads that we believe are more relevant to you and your interests. For example, we may use targeting or advertising Cookies to limit the number of times you see the same ad on our Collide Services and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. These Cookies remember what you have looked at on the Collide Services and we may share this information with other organizations, such as advertisers.

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, 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 regularly. 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.com/security/flashplayer for further information). Please be aware that if you disable or reject Flash Cookies for the Collide Services, you may not be able to access certain features, such as video content or services that require you to sign in.

How Do Third Parties Use Cookies on the Website?

In some circumstances, we may work with third parties to provide services on the Collide Services. For example, third party advertisers and other organizations may use their own Cookies to collect information about your activities on the Collide Services and/or the advertisements you have clicked on. This information may be used by them to serve advertisements that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you based on content you have viewed. Third party advertisers may also use this information to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements. We do not control these Cookies and to disable or reject third party Cookies, please refer to the relevant third party’s website.
