3. Cookies and Other Similar Tracking Technology

3.1 Our Sites and Services use cookies and other similar technologies to ensure that you get the most out of them. Cookies are small amounts of information in the form of text files which we store on your computer or device.

Ad companies also use device IDs or Advertising IDs to track your use of the app, track the number of ads displayed, measure ad performance and display ads that are more relevant to you. Analytics companies use device IDs to track information about app usage.
