The objective of this Policy is to provide you, as a user of Snapmuse’s services, with clear and accessible information about the cookies that Snapmuse uses, the role they play in helping us provide the best possible experience to you and the choices you have when it comes to your cookie settings.
Cookies are text files which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. They are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org or www.youronlinechoices.eu.
The term cookie actually describes a range of technologies, including:
We’ll use the term cookie throughout this Policy to cover all of
these technologies, but we’ll make sure we provide you with
clear details about them all so that you can make informed
choices about your cookie settings.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your user experience. They can also help to ensure that ads you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
There are a few different categories of cookies, including:
Cookies also differ depending on the purpose they are used for, including
|Strictly Necessary Cookies||
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to use
the features of our services, such as maintaining your
playlist. Without these cookies, services you have asked
for e.g., e-billing, cannot be provided.
In summary, these cookies enable services you have specifically asked for and make using our services possible.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use
our services, for instance which pages visitors go to most
often, and if they get error messages from web pages.
These cookies collect anonymous information on the pages
visited. All information these cookies collect is
aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to
improve how our services perform.
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you
make (such as your user name, language or the region you
are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features.
These cookies can also be used to remember changes you
have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages
that you can customise. The information these cookies
collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your
browsing activity on otherwebsites.
These cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience.
If the same cookie is used for re-targeting they must be included in the ‘Targeting or advertising cookies’ category as well. It might also include cookies that are used to deliver a specific function, but where that function includes cookies used for behavioural/targeted advertising networks they must be included in the ‘Targeting or advertising cookies’ category as well as this category.
|Targeting or advertising Cookies||
These cookies are used to deliver advertisements more
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 the advertising
campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks
with the website operator’s permission. They remember that
you have visited a website and this information is shared
with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often
targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site
functionality provided by the other organisations.
These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests.
