  • Advertising Cookies Advertising Cookies collect data about your online activity and identify your interests so that we can provide advertising that we believe is relevant to you. These are typically in the form of Cookies placed by a third party on your device and may provide information to those third parties about browsing habits that may help identify if certain services that such third parties provide are being used, identify your interests, retarget you and serve advertisements that are relevant to you. We do not have control or access to such third party Cookies. If you look at one page on our Site, an advertisement may be delivered to you on our Site or on other sites, for products referenced on that page or for similar products and services. We do not engage in retargeted advertising for children users of our Site.

Opt-out options are also available on the websites of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) and the European Digital Advertising Alliance (eDAA).

Session Cookies and Persistent Cookies

The types of Cookies described above may be session Cookies which are temporary Cookies that are only stored on your device while you are visiting our site or persistent Cookies, which are Cookies that are stored on your device for a period of time after you leave our site.

The length of time a persistent Cookie stays on your device varies from Cookie to Cookie. We use persistent Cookies to store your preferences so that they are available for the next visit, and to keep a more accurate account of how often you visit our Site, how often you return, how your use of the Site may vary over time, and measure the effectiveness of advertising efforts. Through these Cookies, we may collect information about your online activity after you leave our Site. Just like any other usage information we collect, this information allows us to improve the Services and customize your online experience.

Your browser may also offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. Our “Do Not Track” policy is part of our Privacy Policy and can be located there, but generally, because we do not track our users after they leave our Site beyond certain persistent Cookies, we do not respond to “Do Not Track” requests.

Our Site use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (Google) which is based on Cookies technology. The information generated by the Cookie is usually sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored.

On Instadapp’s behalf, Google will use the generated information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide the website operator with additional services connected with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not collated with other data by Google.
