What Are Cookies, First?
When you visit a website or use an online service, little data files called cookies are installed on your computer or mobile device. To improve your experience on our websites, for instance, cookies help us recognise you and remember your preferences. They also assist us in providing you with adverts that are pertinent to your professional interests.
There are many purposes for why we utilise cookies. These cookies could be first party cookies (sponsored by AGW Media Network) or third party cookies (hosted by a company other than AGW Media Network, such as partners and service providers). Cookies allow us to deliver you relevant advertising both on and off of our websites by allowing us to recognise you when you visit our websites or use our services.
On our websites, we utilise a variety of cookies, such as the ones listed below.
Our websites function more efficiently thanks to essential cookies. Certain features of our websites wouldn’t work correctly without the use of these cookies. To identify who of our visitors have previously registered to access our premium content, for instance, we utilise necessary cookies.
Cookies for Analytical Performance:
The performance of our websites and user interactions are tracked by analytical performance cookies. These cookies give us data that enables us to enhance our services and websites.
Functional cookies are used to authenticate your identify and remember your preferences on our websites. We use functional cookies, for instance, to identify and remember your name and password on our websites.
A little Flash Cookie could be used when you visit one of our websites that makes use of Macromedia Flash Player. These cookies are used to store your preferences for the Flash player and improve your surfing experience.
Cookies for behavioural advertising:
When you visit websites on and off our network, the AGW Media Network and its Partners will use behavioural advertising cookies to show you advertisements that are customised to your interests. Your interests and surfing history are analysed by behavioural advertising cookies, which then show you advertisements both on and off our network that are relevant to your interests. Behavioural advertising is distinct from advertising you would see when you’re looking for something online using a search engine (like Google, Yahoo, or Bing) or on the page you might be visiting at a certain time because it is based on your web browsing behaviour over a period of time. For instance, you might be investigating goods and services associated with data centre virtualization. While you explore the pertinent sections of our sites and a data centre virtualization provider is running an advertising campaign on our network, we might show you an advertisement for one of their products.
What does “DNT” stand for?
DNT is a notion that has been proposed for the internet industry by regulatory bodies including the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to provide internet users control over the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. To create a DNT technology standard, the World Wide Web Consortium has been collaborating with business associations, web browsers, tech firms, and government agencies.
In what ways are cookies used for advertising?
We can display you advertisements that are pertinent to your professional interests thanks to cookies and other ad technology like beacons, pixels, and tags. They also assist us in knowing when material has been shown to you, understanding and improving our service, and providing aggregated audits, research, and reporting for advertising. Your web browser might ask for adverts and beacons directly from third-party ad network servers, in which case those networks would be able to read, alter, or set third-party cookies just like they would be able to if you had asked for a web page from their site. AGW Media Network advertisements may also use third-party cookies.
