Cookie Policy

EMWPressWire Privacy Policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your information. This policy specifically explains how we, our partners and users of our services deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).

Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

How we use cookies

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalized experience for both visitors and registered users, and some allow the display of advertising from selected third-party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (clicking the “like” or “follow” button on a post, for example).

Many of the cookies we use are only set if you are a registered user (so you don’t have to log in every time, for example), while others are set whenever you visit one of our websites, irrespective of whether you have an account.

For more information on the choices you have about the cookies we use, please see the Controlling Cookies section below.

Examples of Cookies

Site performance cookies

These cookies let us make sure that we are showing you the site best optimized for your screen and connection, whether that is a desktop with a fast broadband connection or a small-screened smartphone over an older 2G & 3G mobile phone network.

Anonymous analytics cookies

Every time a user visits this website, third parties generate anonymous cookies so we can tell whether that user has visited this site before, which helps us keep track of how many users we are getting on a daily and monthly basis.

Geotargeting cookies

If you are signed in you can publish comments and access certain private sections of the site, and cookies let you remain signed in on your laptop or device no matter if you close your browser or shut down your device.

Advertising cookies

These cookies help determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before, or how long since you have seen it. These are useful to help us find advertisements that you are more interested in.

Third-party advertising cookies

Alongside our own advertisements, we make use of third parties to serve advertisements to our users. These services use cookies to better target their advertisements both in the same manner as our advertising cookies, but also on occasion tracking users across sites to help determine their interests.

Other third-party cookies

Other third parties may also make use of cookies on the website in order to record how users use the tools and services we embed on the site such as video stream and social sharing buttons.

Controlling Cookies

Visitors may wish to restrict the use of cookies or completely prevent them from being set. Most browsers provide ways to control cookie behavior such as the length of time they are stored – either through built-in functionality or by utilizing third-party plugins. If you disable cookies, please be aware that some of the features of our service may not function correctly.
