These cookies help us make the website function properly, make the website more secure, provide better user experience, and understand how the website performs and to analyze what works and where it needs improvement.

How do we use cookies ?

As most of the online services, our website uses cookies first-party and third-party cookies for a number of purposes. The first-party cookies are mostly necessary for the website to function the right way, and they do not collect any of your personally identifiable data.

The third-party cookies used on our websites are used mainly for understanding how the website performs, how you interact with our website, keeping our services secure, providing advertisements that are relevant to you, and all in all providing you with a better and improved user experience and help speed up your future interactions with our website.

What types of cookies do we use ?

Essential: Some cookies are essential for you to be able to experience the full functionality of our site. They allow us to maintain user sessions and prevent any security threats. They do not collect or store any personal information. For example, these cookies allow you to log-in to your account and add products to your basket and checkout securely.

Statistics: Analytics Cookies hold information as you view different pages of the website and help us to build up a profile of how our readers use the website. They help us to make the website work as efficiently as possible and provide better content and services in the future. We may also use analytics cookies to measure the effectiveness of advertising on the Site pages and elsewhere on the internet.

Marketing: Advertising Cookies are placed by us and our advertising partners to deliver more relevant advertising. Our Site pages are predominately free to consume, and in exchange we sell our advertising space to allow us to create high quality content and bring you the services you value. Cookies are a vital part of that value exchange.

These cookies may gather information about your browsing activity on our sites and for third parties, across different Sites and across different visits. They allow us and advertisers to show more relevant ads and allow advertisers to manage how many times a device sees an advert. They might also allow the advertiser to tailor advertising to you when you visit our Sites. Advertising Cookies are usually stored until you delete them or they expire based on the time period set in each cookie, which is normally around 30 days.

The information stored in these cookies may also be used by the third-party ad providers to show you ads on other websites on the browser as well.

The third party advertisers are required to follow the applicable laws. However, POPS Media does not have control over the third party organisations that place cookies, who each have their own cookie and privacy policies. We aim to be transparent on who we work with.
