WHAT THEY ARE

Cookies are small files that websites place on your computer while you browse the internet. Like many websites, we use cookies at Yawave to find out how our services are used and how we can improve them.

A pixel tag is a small string of code on a web page or in an email message. Like many other services, we use pixel tags to find out if you have accessed certain web or email content. This helps us evaluate and optimize our services and personalize your Yawave experience.

Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or app to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. We use local storage to customize the ads you see to you - based on your past interactions with Yawave.

WHY WE USE THEM

Yawave uses cookies and these other technologies to recognize you as a returning visitor, to improve the quality of our services, and to make your browsing experience more meaningful.

HOW THEY WORK

When you visit Yawave, our web server sends a cookie to your device, which allows us to recognize your device (but not the person currently using it). By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other account information, such as when you sign in to the Services, we know that the cookie's information relates to your user account. Similarly pixel tags on Yawave and in email communications help identify your device usage when interacting with Yawave. Some of the tags and cookies used by our services, are served by us while some others come from trusted partners who deliver their services on our behalf (for example, for web analytics or social media widgets).

Some examples of the types of cookies and other technologies used by Yawave:

  • Authentication: Yawave uses cookies and similar technologies for authentication to tell us when you have logged in to Yawave. This gives us the ability to show you views according to your personal interests and connect you with social waves you may have already interacted with.
  • Security: Cookies also help protect Yawave by enabling security features and detecting activity that may violate our policies and terms of use. These cookies help us protect your account from unauthorized access, notify you of such access and provide resources that allow us to disable all of your active sessions (for example, when you log out or change your password).
  • Localization: some cookies help us provide localized experiences - for example, by making sure you see Yawave in your preferred language.
  • Website Features and Services: Yawave uses cookies that provide functionality and help us enable our products and services - for example, by saving your preferences or pre-saving the username field when you sign up.
  • Performance: performance cookies help us manage traffic between servers and understand Yawave's performance so we can provide you with the best possible experiences.
  • Analytics and Research: Cookies and other technologies also help us understand, improve and research the features and content of the Yawave website. For example, we might use cookies to understand how you discover Social Waves or what types of browsers or devices you use.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, if you prefer, you can set your browser to prevent this or to notify you each time. However, blocking or deleting cookies may prevent you from taking full advantage of our services.
