The NewsWhip Group uses “cookies” in conjunction with its Websites and Services to obtain information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your device (e.g., your phone or your computer) for record-keeping purposes. For example, a cookie could allow the Websites to recognize your browser, while another could store your preferences and other information.
Your browser may allow you to set how it handles cookies, such as declining all cookies or prompting you to decide whether to accept each cookie. But please note that some parts of the Websites or Services may not work as intended or may not work at all without cookies.
1. NewsWhip Cookies and Third Party Cookies
We may also allow our business partners to place cookies on your device. For example, we use Google Analytics for web analytics, and so Google may also set cookies on your device.
There are two types of cookies used on the Platform, namely “persistent cookies” and “session cookies”.
Session cookies will normally expire when you close your browser, while persistent cookies will remain on your device after you close your browser, and can be used again the next time you access the Platform.
2. Other Technologies
The Websites and Services may also use other technologies with similar functionality to cookies, such as web beacons and tracking URLs to obtain Log Data about users.
