Cookie Policy

Last updated: 1st June 2018

Amibay.com (from here on referred to as the website) uses cookies. By using this website, you consent to the use of cookies.

This policy explains what cookies are, outlines how we use them, how third-parties may use cookies on this website, and your choices regarding cookies and further information about cookies, including how to opt out of them if you wish to do so.

This policy gets updates if how we use cookies changes. The date above reflects the most recent updates and changes made to this policy. The website, the cookies we use, and this policy are all a continual work in progress so will evolve over time.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your web browser by a website you visit. These small files are stored by the web browser on your device (computer, mobile phone, tablet etc) and enable a website to "personalise" itself to users by remembering information about the user's visit, such as recognising you are logged in or the pages you have visited. They can also be used to make return visits to the website easier and the service we provide more useful to you. We may also use cookies within emails we may send.

While cookies are used to identify users and devices, they only ever collect non-personal information such as IP addresses and device IDs. The data is anonymised in such a way that identification of actual people is impossible.

Why do we use them?

Our Websites use cookies to:
  • Store any preferences you have made and display content to you in a more personalised way.
  • To remember your account’s logged in status.
  • We may use essential cookies to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent use of user accounts.
  • To provide analytics information to help the website’s development.

We will always try to make sure our website contains clear and easy to find information about our cookies in this document.

What types of cookies do we use?

We use both session and persistent cookies on the Service and we use different types of cookies to run the website:
  • Session cookies - We only use these while you are visiting our website (without loggin in with an account) and they are deleted when you leave. They remember you as you move between pages. We use this information to collect information about how visitors are viewing the site, and the pages visited. They also help maintain security.
  • Persistent cookies - These cookies stay on your computer until they expire or are deleted. They are created when you log into the site and help with your account personalisation and site navigation. We set automatic deletion dates so that we don't keep your information for longer than we need to.
  • First and third-party cookies – Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user - the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third-party cookie.

Below is a full list of all different third-party cookies that we use:

Cookie: Google Analytics, Google AdSense, DoubleClick
Type: Site analytics (Google Analytics)
Description: Google (www.google.com) operates the Google Display Network: a collection of millions of websites and mobile applications that are powered by display advertising, including many Google services like YouTube. Google also operates the DoubleClick digital advertising platform: the ad technology foundation to create, transact, and manage digital advertising for the world’s buyers, creators, and sellers. The DoubleClick platform includes the DoubleClick Advertising Exchange and Double Click Bid Manager.
