Generally, the Services automatically collect usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the Site or mobile application. We may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure (“Aggregate Information”). This type of Aggregate Information enables Us and third parties authorized by Us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Services so that We can analyze and improve them.
When You visit the Site, We may also collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based or other do-not- track ("DNT") mechanisms, We do not respond to web browser-based DNT signals at this time.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?
TYPES OF COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGY WE USE ON THE SITE
We may use essential cookies for the duration of each session (“session cookies”). Session cookies enable You to securely access the Site and its functionalities. Session cookies are deleted when You log out of the Site or when You close your web browser. The following information may be collected through session cookies: single sign-on data and session ID (to remember your credentials over the course of your session); server affinity and authentication data (to establish and maintain the communication with the most appropriate servers).
Session cookies may also be used by Us or our service providers to determine whether You have viewed this Cookie Notice and to allow for the frequency capping of the cookie on-site notice (an on-site cookie notice at the bottom of the landing page that informs You that cookies are used on the Site and how to enable and disable them). In addition, We may use session cookies to remember the choices You make on the Site. You may reject or disable session cookies by altering the cookie function of your browser. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell You how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when You receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies.
Third party cookies may be used for web advertising purposes, such as to understand your use of the Site and your online activities, and to present You with relevant Hashddd offers and advertisements tailored to your interests, including on the basis of your selected country or language. We may also partner with ad networks that use web beacons to customize relevant content to You on third-party websites. These partnerships may allow ad networks to use web beacons enable ad networks to serve targeted Hashddd content and advertisements to You when You visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad networks’ servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies to provide the Hashddd content and advertisements, just as if You had requested a web page from their site.
Advertising cookies collect the following information: unique identification assigned to your device; IP address; device and browser type; operating system; referring URLs; content viewed or other actions taken on the Site; time and date of those actions; and country information.
Performance Cookies and Web Beacons
Third-party persistent cookies, as well as web beacons, may be used for web analytics purposes for our exclusive use; i.e., for managing and improving the performance and design of the Site. In addition, to increase the effectiveness of ad delivery, We may deliver a web beacon from an ad network to You through the use of our services. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for Us and for advertisers.
The following information may be placed in/collected through the persistent cookies and web beacons: unique identification number assigned to your device; IP address; browser type; operating system; referring URLs; information on actions taken; and dates and times of Site visits. All data collected by third-party cookies on our behalf is aggregated and of a statistical nature.
