Cookies & Other Storage TechnologiesCookies are small pieces of text used to store information on web browsers. Cookies are used to store and receive identifiers and other information on computers, phones, and other devices. Other technologies, including data we store on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device, and other software, are used for similar purposes. In this policy, we refer to all of these technologies as “cookies.”
For example: We store information in a cookie that is placed on your browser or device so you will see the site in your preferred language.
For example: Cookies help us route traffic between servers and understand how quickly Facebook Services load for different people. Cookies also help us record the ratio and dimensions of your screen and windows and know whether you’ve enabled high contrast mode, so that we can render our sites and apps correctly.
For example: Cookies can help us understand how people use the Facebook Service, analyze which parts of the Facebook Services people find most useful and engaging, and identify features that could be improved.
- The Facebook Services;
- Services provided by other members of the Facebook family of companies; and
- Services provided by other companies that use the Facebook Services (such as companies that incorporate the Like button or Facebook’s advertising services into their websites and apps).
We may also set and receive information stored in cookies from other domains used by the Facebook family of companies, including the atdmt.com, liverail.com and Instagram.com domains.
If you have a Facebook Account:
- You can use your ad preferences to learn why you’re seeing a particular ad and control how we use information we collect to show you ads.
- Some of the ads you see are based on your activity on websites and apps beyond the Facebook family of companies. We call this online interest-based advertising. You can control whether you see online interest-based ads from Facebook in your ad settings.
- The Facebook Audience Network is a way for advertisers to show you ads in apps and websites beyond the Facebook family of companies. One of the ways Audience Network shows relevant ads is by using your ad preferences to determine which ads you may be interested in seeing. You can control this in your ad settings.
Everyone:You can opt out of seeing online interest-based ads from Facebook and other participating companies through the Digital Advertising Alliance in the US, the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada in Canada, or the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance in Europe or through your mobile device settings.
Browser cookie controls:In addition, your browser or device may offer settings that allow you to choose whether browser cookies are set and to delete them. For more information about these controls, visit your browser or device's help material. Certain parts of the Facebook Services may not work properly if you have disabled browser cookie use.
