Cookie Policy

This policy explains how cookies, mobile advertising identifiers, and similar technologies are used on our website and apps (together, “CivicBell” or our “Services”).

1. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file containing a unique identifier that is placed in the web browser of your computer or mobile device when you visit a site. Cookies and similar technologies (which include pixels, tags, web beacons, software development kits, and local browser storage technologies) (together “cookies”) enable operators of sites/apps to recognize your device and collect information from it when you interact with them. They use this information to understand how the site/app is being used, remember user preferences and improve users’ browsing experience. Cookies are also used to make the advertising you see online more relevant to your interests.

2. What is a mobile advertising identifier?

Most major phones and tablets include a mobile advertising identifier (e.g., an IDFA on iOS and an ADID on Android) that is a unique device identifier that enables third parties to connect you to your activities on that app to your activities on other unrelated apps and websites. This is generally used for personalizing advertising and measurement of advertising campaigns. Even without a mobile advertising identifier, you’d still see advertising but those ads may be less relevant to you.

3. Who places cookies on my device?

Cookies set by the site you visit are called “first party cookies” (i.e., cookies placed by CivicBell). Cookies set by other parties are called “third party cookies.” Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality within the site, such as site analytics, advertising and social media features. The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer or device both when it visits the site/app in question and also when it visits certain other sites/apps. We do not control how these third parties use your information, which is subject to their own privacy policies. See the table below for details of the use of third party cookies and similar technologies on CivicBell.

Using these opt-out services will not prevent you from seeing all ads but may make the ads you do see less relevant to you. You will also need to set these opt-out preferences on each browser or device that you use.

Our business changes constantly and our cookie policy will also change, so please review it frequently. We will notify you of any changes by posting the updated policy on this page with its effective date.
