Statistics Cookies

These cookies are used to obtain visitor statistics such as: how many visits have we got in our website, what type of technology/device are they using (e.g. Mac or Windows, mobile or desktop, which helps identify possible working issues for particular technologies), how long is the visit to the website, what was the viewed page, etc.
This helps us to continuously improve HowToAvoid. These analytics programs can also tell us how people has reached the website (e.g. from a search engine) and whether or not they have been here before. For these analytics, we use Google Analytics product, which has its own Privacy Policy, owned by Google.

Advertising Cookies

Cookies are widely used in online advertising. However, neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.
Please note that advertising helps keep our service free, and opting out of advertising cookies will not disable ads. The ads will just no longer be tailored to you and your personal preferences.
This also brings more difficulties to keep our service free, given the lower value of this kind of advertising. We fund our website by showing ads as you browse the website pages. These ads are usually managed by a partner specialized in providing adverts for multiple sites. These partners invariably place cookies to collect anonymous data about the websites you visit so that they can personalize the ads to you, ensure that you don't see the same ads too often, and ultimately report to advertisers which campaigns are working.

Social Network Cookies

Cookies are used by social networks like Facebook or Twitter so you can easily Like or Share our content with the sharing buttons in our site.
Privacy implications of this depend on the privacy settings you have chosen for each of these networks.
