What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on User’s computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” User and User’s 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 User visits (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”).

How we use cookies

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalised 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).

For now, IAC collects cookies for analytics purposes only in order to improve our Website and to monitor the Website’s traffic and usage.
