What are cookies?

A cookie is a piece of software code that an internet web site sends to your browser when you access information at that site. A cookie is stored as a simple text file on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. It is a small text file that is stored on your computer that enables us to recognize you (for example, as a registered user) when you visit our website, store your preferences and settings, enhance your experience by delivering content and advertising specific to your interests, perform research and analytics, track your use of our Services, and assist with security and administrative functions. Cookies may be persistent or stored only during an individual session. Cookies let you navigate between pages efficiently as they store your preferences, and generally improve your experience of a website. When we say first-party cookies we mean cookies that are served by Madtown. When we say third party cookies we mean cookies that are served by non -Madtown parties.

Please note that we do not collect, store or process sensitive personal data or information as part of our services on our Website.

A pixel tag (also called a web beacon or clear GIF) is a tiny graphic with a unique identifier, embedded invisibly on a webpage (or an online ad or email), and is used to count or track things like activity on a webpage or ad impressions or clicks, as well as to access cookies stored on users’ computers. Madtown uses pixel tags to measure the popularity of our various pages, features and services. We also may include web beacons in e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether the message has been opened and for other analytics

How are cookies used?

Cookies are used in order to better understand how applications and websites work and to optimize online and mobile experiences. Cookies do this by allowing the party serving the cookie to analyze a website’s or mobile app’s performance, to identify certain users anonymously and remember their preferences, to better understand whether a computer or device (and probably its user) has visited a website previously and to serve personalized advertisements to the user.

What kinds of cookies are used on the Site?

Our Site primarily uses the following six types of cookies:

1. Essential cookies


Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to.

2. Performance cookies


We utilize other cookies to analyze how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customizing our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website.

3. Functionality cookies


We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customization preferences, such as which location specific edition of the website you want to see when you log in.

4. Behaviorally Targeted Advertising cookies


We and our advertisers use cookies to serve you with advertisements that we believe are relevant to you and your interests. However, we do not tell our advertisers who you are.

5. Compliance, Security Authentication Cookies


These cookies are used to prevent fraud, protect your data from unauthorized parties and to comply with legal requirements. For example, these cookies will be used to determine if you are logged in.

6. Notification Cookies


These cookies are used to improve your use of the site by allowing notices of information and options. For example, we may use the cookie to allow us to stop showing you the signup notification if you have already seen it.

4. Advertising Cookies

We allow third parties to deliver personalized advertising content on our site and/or on third party websites and applications.
