Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored in your computer or mobile device by your browser. They enable websites to remember actions and preferences over a period of time. These cookies may be set by us, our service providers or advertisers.
Our Sites use different types of cookies to improve your experience and to provide services and advertising. We use:
Third Party Cookies
- Essential cookies to enable services you specifically asked for.
- Functionality cookies to recognise when you return to our website so that we can remember your preferences.
- Analytics and performance cookies to count visitors and how our Sites are used. These help us understand our audience on an aggregate basis. For example: number of visitors to a Site, where visitors are visiting from, how many pages they look at and how long they stay on a page or visit. This information is not used to track individual users.
- Advertising cookies to measure interactions with ads and prevent showing the same ads to you too often. Also to make advertising more relevant to you and more valuable to us and advertisers. These cookies are anonymous and we cannot identify you from the cookies we place.
We use third parties to deliver various services in our Sites. For example, we use Cloudflare for spam detection (more information
); Google for audience analytics, ad serving and targeting (more information
Other Third Party Cookies
Advertisers sometimes use their own cookies or similar technologies like web beacons for example to better target their ads, to measure their ad campaign or to stop showing you an ad. You can learn more about how advertisers use these cookies and manage your preferences in https://www.youronlinechoices.com/ie/
Personalisation of ads improves the relevance of the adverts you see and the value these ads create for advertisers. This helps fund our Sites and keep our free services. We can not identify you from personalising ads.
We personalise ads based on the information we gather from the use of our Sites and partner sites like Daft.ie, DoneDeal and Adverts.ie, so for example if you read a number of articles or threads about motors we might infer that a car manufacturer ad campaign could be of interest to you.
We also use third parties’ technology, for example Google’s AdX to support the Sites. These third parties may use information they collected from your use of other websites to create an ad profile that informs the ads they show you.
You can manage your preferences or choose not to get personalised ads here . If you choose not to get personalised ads, you will still see advertising. However it may not be tailored to your interests.
If you are primarily concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers, you can manage your preferences by going to https://www.youronlinechoices.com/ie/
You can find more information about how we handle data in our Privacy Notice
