Cookie Policy

Our websites use a variety of technical methods for collecting and tracking device information and usage data, including web beacons, cookies, local storage, and device IDs.

Cookies are small pieces of text that may be saved on your device when you view our website. We and other companies use unique identifiers in cookies to distinguish your device for a variety of purposes, including helping you navigate our website with ease, remembering your preferences and interests, and tracking your online activities over time and across different websites and online services. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at one of our sites. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

Web beacons are small pieces of data often embedded in images on the pages of our websites and emails. These beacons may request information from our servers or third-party servers to allow download of content and information. Beacons may also be used to set and read cookies.

Device IDs are unique identifiers for your devices. We and others may collect and use device IDs for tracking activities and usage of our Services.

Third-party cookies used for analytics and advertising

We use third parties that may also use their own cookies, web beacons, local storage, device IDs, and other tracking data to assist us with analytics and advertising. Some third parties, including advertisers and ad-related services, may also help us and others associate your activities across your browsers and mobile devices you use for retargeting, advertising, and ad measurement purposes.

Please consult the respective privacy policies and statements of these third parties for more information about how they use your data. For examples of privacy notices of third parties who use cookies for tracking, please refer to the chart below:

What choices do you have about processing your personal information?

We provide you with various controls over your personal information, for example:

You can contact us at privacy@geekexchange.com with requests to delete, access, and update your personal information.

You can choose to block and/or remove all cookies and local storage. You can do this through your browser (such as Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer) settings. If you remove or block cookies and local storage, you won’t have access to many features that make your experience smoother and more personalized, and some of our Services may not function properly. Since certain opt-out preferences are also stored in a cookie in your browser (such as opt-outs from advertising companies), please note that if you remove all cookies, you will need to renew your opt-out choices. Some internet browsers may transmit “Do Not Track” signals. Because uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not been adopted, our websites may not be aware of or process “Do Not Track” signals.

You can also opt out of many of the third-party analytics and advertising cookies as described in the Privacy Notice in the Third-party cookies used for analytics and advertising section above by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.
