This Cookie Policy explains how Foodpoints.com LLC., "Foodpoints.com" "we", "us", "our," or "Foodpoints.com," and our corporate affiliates use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our sites on which this Cookie Policy is posted that are official Foodpoints.com-branded or operated, with approval, by Foodpoints.com. We explain the technologies we use as well as your rights to control our use of them.

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. A cookie may have unique identifiers and reside, among other places, on your device, in emails we send to you, and on the Platform.

Cookies set by Foodpoints.com are called "first-party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than Foodpoints.com are called "third-party cookies." Third-party cookies enable features or functionality provided by third parties in connection with the Platform, for example, advertising, interactive content, and analytics. The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your device both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

We may use other technologies similar to cookies like web beacons, which are sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs". These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Platform or opened an email that we have sent them. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Our Platform may also use "Flash Cookies" (also known as Local Shared Objects or "LSOs"), which are different from browser cookies because of the amount and type of data stored.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some are required for technical reasons in order for our Platform to operate. Others provide a better experience on our Platform by remembering some of your activities on the Platform (including through our plug-ins, widgets, and embedded content). Other cookies enable more relevant advertising and better analytics.

Essential Cookies. Some cookies are required for the Platform to operate, for example, in the following ways:

> To identify you as being logged into the Platform

> Remembering settings you have applied, such as layout, text size, preferences, and colors

> Remembering if we already have asked you to complete a survey or if you already have engaged with particular content on the Platform to avoid showing these items to you again

> Remembering when you have added a product to your Ideabook

Cookies for Analytics and Personalization. Some cookies collect information about how you use the Platform to help us improve how our Platform is being used, and to help us understand what may interest you and personalize your experience accordingly. These cookies, for example:

> Collect or transmit information about you, such as your browser type and search preferences, and your use of the Platform or third-party sites that incorporate part of the Platform

Advertising Cookies. We and third parties use cookies to make advertising more relevant to you. They perform functions like measuring the performance of ads, preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed, and in some cases selecting ads that are based on your visits to our Platform and other sites. These cookies, for example:

> Provide feedback to advertising partners that one of their visitors also visited the Platform

> Provide our advertisers with data relating to ads that have been displayed to you or that you have clicked on, and the date and time of your use

> To show you relevant advertising off of the Platform

> To understand what actions you take on the Platform after receiving our advertising

Third-Party Cookies. We work with analytics service providers, advertising partners, and advertising networks that may have access to your device information but does not enable them to collect your name, contact details or other personal information unless you choose to provide this information.
