When you visit our website Flirtbook or make use of our services, we, or our authorised service providers, may make use of cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies for storing information to help provide you with a better, faster, and safer experience and for advertising purposes.

Our cookies and similar technologies have various functions. They are necessary for the optimal functioning of our services, for the improvement of our performance, to offer you additional functionalities, or to help us assist you with relevant and targeted promotional offers. We use cookies and similar technologies which only remain on your device for as long as you keep your browser active (session), and cookies and similar technologies which remain on your device for a longer period (permanent). You are free to block these cookies, to remove or disable them, if possible on your device. You can manage your cookies and cookie preferences in your browser or device settings.

What are cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies?

Like most websites, we make use of technologies which actually consist of small data-files which are placed on your computer, tablet, mobile phone, or other devices (collectively called ‘device’). These files allow us to register certain data-fragments as soon as you visit our website or use our services.

The specific names and types of the cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies we apply may change from time to time. In order to provide you with better insight into this policy and our use of these technologies, we’ve drawn up the following limited terminology and definitions:

Cookies: Small text-files, normally consisting of letters and figures, which are placed in the memory of your browser or device when you visit a website or look at a message. Cookies allow a website to recognise certain devices or browsers. There are several types of cookies:

Session cookies expire at the end of your browser session and allow us to link your actions during that particular browser session. Persistent cookies are stored on your device between different browser-sessions so we can remember your preferences or actions on various sites. First-party cookies are set by the website you visit. Third-party cookies are set by a third party website separate from the website you are visiting.

Cookies can be disabled or removed by tools that are available in most commercial browsers. The preferences for each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options.

Web beacons: Small graphic images (also known as ‘pixel tags’ or ‘clear GIFs’) that may be included on our sites, services, applications, messaging, and tools, that typically work in conjunction with cookies to identify our users and user behavior.

Similar technologies: Technologies which store data on your browser or device by using locally shared objects or local storage, such as flash-cookies, HTML 5-cookies, and other methods for web-application software. These technologies can be used on all your browsers and in some cases they cannot be entirely managed through your browser, but must be directly administered through your installed applications or the device requirements.

We may use the terms ‘cookies‘ or ‘similar technologies‘ interchangeably to refer to all technologies with which we use or store data on your browser, collect information, or identify you in the manner described above.

Your choice and our use of cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies.

Certain site-functions and services are only available through the application of these technologies. You’re always free to block these technologies, to remove or disable them if this is possible on your browser or device. If you reject cookies or other, similar, technologies, however, you must take into account that Flirtbook will not be able to function optimally.

Our uses of such technologies fall into the following general categories:

1. Operational related. We may use cookies, web beacons, or other, similar, technologies that are necessary to the operation of our website and services. This includes technologies which grant you access to our website and services that are required to recognise unwarranted surfing behaviour, to prevent fraudulent activities, and to improve security, or with which you can activate various functions, such as member-searches, stored preferences or similar functions;

2. Performance related. We may use cookies, web beacons, or other similar technologies to assess the performance of our website and services, for example as a part of our analytics to help us understand how our visitors use our website, determine whether you have viewed an item or link, or to improve our web content and services;

3. Function related. We may use cookies, web beacons or other similar technologies that allow us to offer you enhanced functionality when accessing or using our site and services. This allows us, for example, to identify you when you log in on our website, or to keep track of your preferences, interests, or the members you previously checked out, so we are able to improve the presentation of information on our website;

4. Advertising or targeting related. We may use first-party or third-party cookies and web beacons to deliver content, including ads relevant to your interests, on our websites or on third party websites. This includes using technologies to understand the usefulness to you of the advertisements and content that have been delivered to you, such as whether you have clicked on an advertisement.

Use of these technologies by authorised external service providers.

Sometimes we collaborate with other authorised businesses (commonly known as ‘service providers‘) who are authorized to place third-party cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies for storing information on our website and in our services with our permission. These service providers may use these technologies to help provide you with a better, faster, and safer experience and for advertising purposes. Some service providers assist us to provide you with more relevant advertisements on our websites or elsewhere on the web.

Service providers can also place cookies on your device through our services (so-called ‘third-party cookies’). They may also collect information with which to identify your device, such as the IP-address, or other unique, or device-IDs. These service providers may apply these technologies to help us provide our own content and advertising, and to collect anonymous site metrics and analytics about the use of website and services. Third-party cookies are covered by the third-parties’ privacy policy.

Advertising networks and exchanges administered by third parties.

Flirtbook may use external parties, such as advertising networks and exchanges, to allow us to serve you advertisements. These external advertising networks and exchanges may use cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies of third parties to collect information about your visits to our website and elsewhere on the internet. They may also collect your device identifier, IP address, or identifier for advertising (IDFA). The information that these third parties collect may be used to provide you with more relevant advertising on our sites or elsewhere on the web. Third-party cookies are covered by the third-parties’ privacy policy.
