Cookies are unique identifiers, usually made up of small bits of text or code. Cookies are usually stored on your device or in your web browser and they send certain information back to the party who served the cookie. When we say “cookies” we are actually referring to a broader range of technologies than just cookies (including web beacons, clear gifs, pixels and other similar technologies). When we say “first-party cookies” we mean cookies that are served by SIMBA. When we say “third-party cookies” we mean cookies that are served by non-SIMBA parties.
Cookies are used in order to better understand how applications and websites work and to optimise online and mobile experiences. Cookies do this by allowing the party serving the cookie to analyse a website’s performance, to identify certain users anonymously and remember their preferences, to better understand whether a computer or device (and probably its user) has visited a website previously and to serve personalized advertisements.
