Why do we use cookies? - Edinburgh Website Directory

Why do we use cookies?

Cookies help us provide, protect and improve the Edinburgh Website Products, such as by personalising content, tailoring and measuring ads, and providing a safer experience. While the cookies that we use may change from time to time as we improve and update the Edinburgh Website Products, we use them for the following purposes:

Authentication

We use cookies to verify your account and determine when you’re logged in so we can make it easier for you to access the Edinburgh Website Products and show you the appropriate experience and features.

For example: We use cookies to keep you logged in as you navigate between Edinburgh Website Pages. Cookies also help us remember your browser so you do not have to keep logging in to Edinburgh Website and so you can more easily log in to Edinburgh Website via third-party apps and websites.
Security, site and product integrity

We use cookies to help us keep your account, data and the Edinburgh Website Products safe and secure.

For example: Cookies can help us identify and impose additional security measures when someone may be attempting to access a Edinburgh Website account without authorisation, for instance, by rapidly guessing different passwords. We also use cookies to store information that allows us to recover your account in the event that you forget your password or to require additional authentication if you tell us that your account has been hacked.

We also use cookies to combat activity that violates our policies or otherwise degrades our ability to provide the Edinburgh Website Products.

For example: Cookies help us fight spam and phishing attacks by enabling us to identify computers that are used to create large numbers of fake Edinburgh Website accounts. We also use cookies to detect computers infected with malware and to take steps to prevent them from causing further harm. Cookies also help us prevent underage people from registering for Edinburgh Website accounts.

Advertising, recommendations, insights and measurement

We use cookies to help us show ads and to make recommendations for businesses and other organisations to people who may be interested in the products, services or causes they promote.

For example: Cookies allow us to help deliver ads to people who have previously visited a business’s website, purchased its products or used its apps and to recommend products and services based on that activity. Cookies also allow us to limit the number of times that you see an ad so you don’t see the same ad over and over again.

We also use cookies to help measure the performance of ad campaigns for businesses that use the Edinburgh Website Products.

For example: We use cookies to count the number of times that an ad is shown and to calculate the cost of those ads. We also use cookies to measure how often people do things such as click on or view ads.

Cookies help us serve and measure ads across different browsers and devices used by the same person.

For example: We can use cookies to prevent you from seeing the same ad over and over again across the different devices that you use.

Cookies also allow us to provide insights about the people who use the Edinburgh Website Products, as well as the people who interact with the ads, websites and apps of our advertisers and the businesses that use the Edinburgh Website Products.

For example: We use cookies to help businesses understand the kinds of people who like their Edinburgh Website Page or use their apps so they can provide more relevant content and develop features that are likely to be interesting to their customers.

We also use cookies to help you opt out of seeing ads from Edinburgh Website based on your activity on third-party websites. Learn more about the information we receive, how we decide which ads to show you on and off the Edinburgh Website Products and the controls that are available to you.

Site features and services

We use cookies to enable the functionality that helps us provide the Edinburgh Website Products.

For example: Cookies help us store preferences, know when you’ve seen or interacted with Edinburgh Website Products’ content and provide you with customised content and experiences. For instance, cookies allow us to make suggestions to you and others, and to customise content on third-party sites that integrate our social plugins. If you are a page administrator, cookies allow you to switch between posting from your personal Edinburgh Website account and the Page.

We also use cookies to help provide you with content relevant to your locale.

For example: We store information in a cookie that is placed on your browser or device so that you will see the site in your preferred language.
Performance

We use cookies to provide you with the best experience possible.

For example: Cookies help us route traffic between servers and understand how quickly Edinburgh Website Products load for different people. Cookies also help us record the ratio and dimensions of your screen and windows and know whether you’ve enabled high-contrast mode, so that we can render our sites and apps correctly.

Analytics and research

We use cookies to better understand how people use the Edinburgh Website Products so that we can improve them.
For example: Cookies can help us understand how people use the Edinburgh Website service, analyse which parts of the Edinburgh Website Products people find most useful and engaging, and identify features that could be improved.

How can you control Edinburgh Website’s use of cookies to show you ads?

One of the ways we use cookies is to show you useful and relevant ads on and off Edinburgh Website. You can control how we use data to show you ads by using the tools described below.

If you have a Edinburgh Website account:

You can use your ad preferences to learn why you’re seeing a particular ad and control how we use information that we collect to show you ads.
To show you better ads, we use data that advertisers and other partners provide us about your activity off Edinburgh Website Company Products, including websites and apps. You can control whether we use this data to show you ads in your ad settings.

The Edinburgh Website Audience Network is a way for advertisers to show you ads in apps and websites off the Edinburgh Website Company Products.
