What cookies are?
A cookie is a small file that a website stores on your device when you visit, typically containing information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognise your web browser when you return, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie.
What type of cookies do we use?
Functionality cookies are used in collecting information about your device and any settings you may configure on the website you’re visiting. With this information, websites can provide you with customised, enhanced or optimised content and services. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party service. We use functionality cookies for selected features on our site.
We use Askimet to block spam comments. It is a plug-in that blocks suspicious comments (including suspicious IP addresses) in order to not spend huge chunks of time deleting spam comments. You can check their terms of service by visiting their website: https://akismet.com/tos/
Analytics cookies monitor how users reached the Site, and how they interact with and move around once on the Site. These cookies let us know what features on the Site are working the best and what features on the Site can be improved.
Advertising cookies are placed on your computer by advertisers and ad servers in order to display advertisements that are most likely to be of interest to you. These cookies allow advertisers and ad servers to gather information about your visits to the Site and other websites, alternate the ads sent to a specific computer, and track how often an ad has been viewed and by whom. This helps companies improve the effectiveness of their campaigns and the quality of content presented to you. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party services.
We use third-party advertisements on My Happy Printables to support our site. These are served by Google Adsense.
Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google Adsense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings by visiting this website: https://www.google.com/settings/ads, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. You may also opt out of some third-party vendors’ uses of cookies for personalized advertising by visiting www.aboutads.info. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services and programs, such as logging into forums and accounts.
