Cookie Policy

At Great News Media, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies. This cookie policy applies to all brands owned and operated by Great News Media.

 

Does Great News Media use cookies?

Yes. We use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses any of Great News Media brands (our properties or sites) has the best possible experience. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

 

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables Great News Media, and our properties, features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to Great News Media and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on Great News Media and our sites, so we can serve relevant ads to you.

 

When does Great News Media place cookies?

We use cookies on our sites and mobile applications (Great News Media properties). Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us. We also may place cookies in your browser when you visit non-Great News Media sites that host our plugins or tags.

 

What types of cookies does Great News Media use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Great News Media or interact with our sites without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Great News Media (and sites) when you return to one of our sites (for example, our sharing application). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

 

What are cookies used for?

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Great News Media, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with Great News Media and sites faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off Great News Media properties and bring customized experiences to you via personalization.
