Cookies and other Technologies


FandomLive Cookie Policy

FandomLive wants to be clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. This policy explains how and when we use cookies to ultimately improve and protect our service.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is a small data file issued to your device when you visit a website that stores information about your use of a service. It enables functionality, secures your access, and helps us learn how you interact with our site. FandomLive (“FDL”) uses cookies to help us recognize you as a returning visitor and improve the quality of our service. We also use technologies that are similar to cookies such as pixel tags and web beacons. Pixels are small portions of codes that we use on our site. We use pixels to learn whether or not you have clicked on certain web content. This helps us measure and improve our servic3es and personalize your experience. Web beacons are invisible picture files that are placed on our site. We use web beacons to see how you interact with our site and other websites and understand how often you view certain content so that we can make our website more efficient and easier to use. Web beacons collect limited information, including a cookie number, a record of the page on which they are placed and a timestamp. Websites may also carry web beacons placed by third party advertisers.

WHAT COOKIES DOES FANDOMLIVE USE?

We use both first-party and third-party cookies on our website as described below.

• First-party cookies

First party cookies are served directly by us to your computer or device. MMT cookies are used to help us render basic site functionality and personalize your experience.


• Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are served by a third party on our behalf. Third-party cookies are used to understand patterns of user activity, devices used and traffic sources on our site.

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some of the cookies we use are “session cookies,” meaning they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are “permanent cookies,” meaning they survive even after your browser is closed. They can be used by sites to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.

Why we use them?

When you visit FandomLive, our web server sends a cookie to your device, which allows us to recognize your device (but not the specific person using it). By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other account information when, for example, you log in to our Services, we know that the cookie information relates to your user account. Similarly, pixel tags on FandomLive and in email communications help us identify how your device is being used to interact with FandomLive content. Some of the tags and cookies used by our Services are served by us, and some are served by trusted partners who are delivering services on our behalf.
Some examples of the types of cookies and other technologies FandomLive uses:

These cookies give us the insight to help us understand and improve features and content on our site. In particular, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics tool, to help us understand how many users engage with our site. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track user interactions, as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how users use our site. This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve our site. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual visitors.
They also help us to collect information about your activities on our site and/or the ads you have clicked on.

These cookies make interacting with social media platforms smooth and easy and are used to place our online advertisements on the social media platform and measure the effectiveness of that advertising. These features (such as Facebook’s Like button) are also used by our business partners to measure the success of their applications. If you are logged in to your account with the third party, the third party may be able to link information or actions about your interactions with MMT.
