interests, and to deliver and tailor marketing or advertising. We want you to be informed about our use of these technologies, so this notice explains the types

What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are commonly stored on your device when you browse and use websites and online services. They are widely used to make
websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information and assist with service or advertising personalization.
Cookies are not the only types of technology that enable this functionality; we also use other, similar types of technologies. See below for more information
We and our Service Providers may use the following types of cookies:
Essential cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide our website or online service. For example, we or our Service Providers may use these
cookies to authenticate and identify our members when they use our websites and applications so we can provide our service to them. They also help us to
enforce our Terms & Conditions, prevent fraud and maintain the security of our service.
Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are not essential but help us to personalize and enhance your experience with WhyNow.com.
For example, they help us to remember your preferences and prevent you from needing to re-enter information you previously provided (for example,
during sign up). We also use these cookies to collect information (such as popular pages, conversion rates, viewing patterns, click-through and other
information) about our visitors’ use of the WhyNow.com service so that we can enhance and personalize our website and service and conduct market research.
Deletion of these types of cookies will result in limited functionality of our service.
Advertising cookies: These cookies use information about your visit to this and other websites, such as the pages you visit, your use of our service or your
response to ads and emails, to deliver ads that are more relevant to you. These types of ads are called “Interest-Based Advertising.” Many of the advertising
cookies associated with our service belong to our Service Providers.
How Does WhyNow.com use Web Beacons and other Technologies?
Web beacons (also known as clear gifs or pixel tags) often work in conjunction with cookies. We and our Service Providers may use them for similar purposes
as cookies, such as to understand and enhance the use of our service, improve site performance, monitor visitor traffic and actions on our site, and understand
interactions with our marketing (including email and online ads on third party sites). Because web beacons often work in conjunction with cookies, in many
cases, declining cookies will impair the effectiveness of web beacons.

of data on your device. We may use these and various other technologies for similar purposes as cookies, such as to enforce our terms, prevent fraud, and
analyse the use of our service. There are a number of ways to exercise choice regarding these technologies. For example, many popular browsers provide the
ability to clear browser storage, commonly in the settings or preferences area; see your browser’s help function or support area to learn more.
