When you visit the Doodle Sites, Doodle uses a number of suppliers who may place cookies, tags, pixels, and similar tracking technologies (collectively, “Cookies”) on your device, browser, or the webpage you are viewing, in order to personalize your experience (e.g., language preferences), understand usage patterns, provide, improve and secure the Doodle Sites.
Doodle Sites use different types of Cookies for different reasons, as follows:
- Absolutely Necessary Cookies: These Cookies are essential to enable you to move around Doodle Sites and use its features. Without these Cookies, services you have asked for, like adding items to an online shopping cart, cannot be provided.
- Performance Cookies: These Cookies collect information about how you use Doodle Sites. Information collected includes, for example, browsers and operating systems used, domain name of the website previously visited, number of visits, average duration of visit, and pages viewed. These Cookies do not collect information that personally identifies you and considered aggregated data. Performance Cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness of a website and enhance your experience.
- Functionality Cookies: These Cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your username or ID, language preference, or the area or region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These Cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts, and other customizable parts of web pages. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for, such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these Cookies collect may be anonymized, and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Doodle may also allow third-party service performance and retargeting Cookies, such as the Google Analytics, Google reCAPTCHA, LinkedIn Insight Tag, Google AdWords, Facebook Pixel, etc., to collect information about your online activities on the Doodle Sites and across unaffiliated websites, you may visit. This information is used to provide ads tailored to your interests (behavioral advertising), and to collect information to help track and manage the effectiveness of the ads and the number of visitors. This means Doodle may show ads based on your past visits to Doodle Sites, through publishing networks, such as the Google Content Network (GCN). More information about these Cookies may be available on the relevant third party’s website.
You may also learn more about and opt-out of certain tailored ads (behavioral advertising) by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance-US, Network Advertising Initiative, Digital Advertising Alliance-Canada, European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance, www.aboutcookies.org, and www.allaboutcookies.org. You may also edit or opt-out of your Google Display Network ads’ preferences at http://www.google.com/settings/ads/.
