|Advertising and Tracking Cookies||
As you use our Ask Apps Services, you will notice that they feature advertising. We allow third party companies, including advertising companies and ad networks, to place cookies on our Ask Apps Services. These cookies enable such companies to track your activity across various sites where they display ads and record your activities so they can show ads that they consider relevant to you as you browse the web. These cookies are anonymous -- they store information about the content you are browsing, but not about who you are. Cookies also allow us and third parties to know whether you've seen an ad or a type of ad, and how long it has been since you've last seen it. This information is used for frequency capping purposes, to help tailor the ads you see, and to measure the effectiveness of ads.
|Social Media Cookies||On some of our Ask Apps Services, third parties that provide applications through our Ask Apps Services may set their own anonymous cookies in order to track the success of their applications or customize applications for you. For example, when you share an article using a social media sharing button on our Ask Apps Services (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus), the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this. Because of how cookies work, we cannot access these cookies, nor can the third parties access the data in cookies used by Ask Apps. Some pages of our Ask Apps Services may also contain embedded content, such as video content from YouTube, and these sites may set their own cookies.||Please see the instructions set out in 'How to control or delete cookies' below.|
