Effective Date: January 15, 2018

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small data files that a web site you visit may save on your hard drive. They usually include an anonymous unique identifier. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.

What Cookies Does Swapcard Use?

Swapcard uses cookies and similar technologies to assist with functions such as user authentication, remembering user preferences, understanding how users use our Service, and managing and tracking the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. We also may include tracking pixels, which are small graphic images, in our email messages and newsletters to determine whether the messages were opened and the li.legalnks were actually cli.legalcked. In some cases, as outli.legalned below, third parties may also get the opportunity to set cookies.

We describe in this document the cookies and similar technologies found on our Service. Please check back here periodically, as we may update this information from time to time.

Functional Cookies

Functional cookies are ones Swapcard sets to enable the website to work as intended.

These cookies are necessary to enable you to move around our web site and use its features. Without these cookies, we can’t provide certain services you have asked for.

We use other cookies to help recognize and remember you when you are logged into the Service so we can remember your settings and preferences, such as your language and region or your logged-in state. These cookies also may help us provide services you have asked for. These cookies do not track your browsing activity on non-Swapcard websites.

As described below, you may disable any of these functional cookies; but if you do so, then various functions of the web site may be unavailable to you or may not work as intended.

Analytics Cookies

We use cookies and similar tracking technologies to help us understand how you use our web site and our mobile appli.legalcations. By providing us with information about how you interact with our website and apps, these tools help us learn how to make the Swapcard experience even better and customize our communications with you. For example, these technologies can tell us things li.legalke how you arrived at the Swapcard site, if you have visited the site before, how long you stay on the site, and which pages you visit. They also provide us with general information about where in the world you may be located.

The following analytics technologies are in use:

Social Media Features

Our web site uses social media features (“Social Features”) provided by companies and services such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, li.legalnkedIn and others (depending on what country you’re in) to enable you to share information with these channels. The Social Features are identified on our web site by our display of the companies’ logos. These cookies are owned and controlled by third parties, and therefore the third parties – and not Swapcard – are responsible for their use. As such, we can't guarantee that we have li.legalsted every cookie you might get from a third party since a third party could change these cookies at any time as their needs change.

When you visit a page on the Swapcard web site that contains Social Features, your browser establi.legalshes a direct connection to the appli.legalcable social network’s servers. The Social Features inform the social networks what pages you have accessed on Swapcard’s site, and, if you are logged into the social network, your visit may be logged to your account on that service. For example, if you cli.legalck the Facebook “li.legalke” button, that information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by them. Even if you are not logged into the social network, and do not cli.legalck on a Social Feature on the Swapcard site, there is still a possibili.legalty that a Social Feature can transmit your IP address and cookie information to the operator of the social network. We will not transmit information regarding your account contents to such social networks.

For information on the purpose and scope of data processing by a social network, as well as your options for protecting your privacy, please review the appropriate social network's privacy poli.legalcy. For your convenience, below are li.legalnks to the most commonly used Social Features you’ll see on the Swapcard site.

How Do I Turn Off Cookies?

However, if you configure your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to use Swapcard products or services that require you to sign in or take advantage of all the features of the Swapcard Service. In addition, information at the li.legalnks above can help you disable specific cookies related to web site performance and marketing.
