The Tracking Technologies that may be used are the following (and subsequent technology and methods later developed which perform a similar function):
- Cookies A cookie is a data file placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Website. A Flash cookie (or locally shared object) is a data file placed on a Device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built-in to or downloaded by User to User’s Device. HTML5 cookies can be programmed through HTML5 local storage. Unlike Flash cookies, HTML5 cookies do not require a plug-in. Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools that are available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some but not all instances can be blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Each browser User uses will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options in this regard. Also, these tools may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies or HTML5 cookies. For information on disabling Flash cookies go to Adobe’s web site www.adobe.com. Please be aware that if User disables or removes cookies, Flash cookies, or HTML5 cookies on User’s Device, some parts of Mymee’s Website, Mymee App and/or Services may not function properly, and that when User revisits Mymee’s Website, Mymee App and Services User’s ability to limit cookies is subject to User’s browser settings and limitations.
- Web Beacons Small graphic images or other web programming code called “web beacons” (also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in pages and messages of our Website, Mymee App and Services. Web beacons may be invisible to User, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Website and , Mymee App and Services, to monitor how users navigate the Website and , Mymee App and Services, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
- Embedded Scripts An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about User’s interactions with the Website and/or the, Mymee App and Services, such as the links the User clicks on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto User’s Device from Mymee’s web server and/or the Mymee Mobile App or a third party service provider, is active only while User is connected to the Website and/or Mymee App, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
- ETag, or entity tag. A feature of the cache in browsers. It is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL. If the resource content at that URL ever changes, a new and different ETag is assigned. Used in this manner ETags are a form of Device Identifier. ETag tracking may generate unique tracking values even where the User consumer blocks HTTP, Flash, and/or HTML5 cookies.
Mymee may use Tracking Technologies for a variety of purposes, including:
There may be other Tracking Technologies now and later devised and used by Mymee in connection with the Website, Mymee App and Services. Further, third parties may use Tracking Technologies with Mymee’s Website.
