A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser or device by websites, mobile apps, and advertisements that you access or use. This data is stored on your browser or device and helps websites and mobile apps remember things about you. For example, cookies may help us remember certain preferences you have selected, such as your language preference.
PIXELS, LOCAL STORAGE, AND OTHER SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
We may also use other similar technologies on our services, such as pixel tags and local storage. We use these technologies to do things like help us see what features are most popular and create a more personalised experience. Pixel tags (also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels) are small blocks of code installed in or on a webpage, mobile app, or advertisement. These tags can retrieve certain information about your browser and device such as: operating system, browser type, device type and version, referring website, website visited, IP address, and other similar information. Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or mobile app to store and retrieve data on an individual’s computer, mobile phone, or other device.
WEB BROWSER OPT-OUT
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you don’t want to allow cookies you may have some options. Your browser may provide you with a set of tools to manage cookies. You can usually set your browser to refuse some cookies or all cookies. For example, some browsers give you the option to allow first-party cookies but block third-party cookies. So what is the difference between first-party and third-party cookies?
- A "first-party" cookie is served by the page or domain that you are visiting. So for example, when you visit Estatespace.com.au and we serve a cookie for purposes of remembering your settings that is a first-party cookie.
- A "third-party" cookie is served by a company that doesn’t operate the page or domain you are visiting. So for example, when you visit Estatespace.com.au and Google serves a cookie on Estatespace.com.au for Estatespace's analytics that is a third-party cookie.
You may also be able to remove cookies from your browser. Your ability to manage cookies through a mobile browser, however, may be limited. For more information about how to manage your cookie settings, please follow the instructions provided by your browser which are usually located within the “Help,” “Tools,” or “Edit” settings.
MOBILE DEVICE OPT-OUTS
Your mobile operating system may let you opt-out from having your information collected or used for interest-based advertising on mobile devices. You should refer to the instructions provided by your mobile device’s manufacturer; this information is typically available under the “settings” function of your mobile device.
