COOKIE POLICY

 

Last updated February 15, 2019

 

This Cookie Policy explains how Swip Alot, LLC (“Company“, “we“, “us“, and “our“) uses cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our mobile apps and/or websites at https://swipalot.com, (“Websites“). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, and your rights to control our use of them.

In some cases we may use cookies to collect personal information, or that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information.

The Quick and Easy Version:

Our network consists of numerous tools for our users to contact and connect with each other. This requires our software to use Cookies, which store information about you. Using cookies allows you to login, place a classified ad, contact a seller, and more. We have 3rd party cookies on the site, which allow us to run advertisements. They may track things like the site you go to when you leave here, products you’ve looked at or searched, and more. That allows us to offer our classified services for free.

Swip Alot has no interest in compiling any information on our users, and what we collect is only what you give us, and what we absolutely need to run the site. That’s it. We have an account deletion tool built right into your SwipAlot.com user profile, so you always know you’re in charge of your data here. To get there, press your name in the upper right corner of our website, then the edit account button. The Delete Account button is located at the bottom of the page. This does not delete cookies stored on your computer, you will need to manually delete those yourself.

You can read more about all the cookies below.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. They are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, to work more efficiently, and provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Swip Alot, LLC) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer when it visits the website in question and when it visits other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate. We refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Properties. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website. You will potentially lose access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted. You may set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. Since the tools to refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, please visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Websites may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations.

If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player. You would block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel . You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions, how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect changes to the cookies we use. We also update for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
