Cookies and similar technologies may be used to collect information when you use What’s New Dawg’s websites, applications, products, advertising services, or other technologies (“Services”), or when you visit a website that uses our Services. What’s New Dawg is dedicated to safeguarding the personal information you provide when using our services.

What are cookies and similar technologies?

A cookie is a little data file that is transferred by a web server to your computer, mobile phone, or tablet device (referred to as a “device” in this policy) so that the website can remember information about your browsing activity on the website. The cookie will collect information about your use of our Services, as well as information about your device, such as its IP address and browser type, broad location, and, if you came to our site via a link from another site, the URL of that site. It may also collect your name and email address if you have registered for any Services or are a subscriber, which may be sent to data processors for registered user or subscriber verification reasons.

As an alternative to cookies, we may employ “local storage” technologies in our Services. This is a type of technology that works in a similar way to cookies, such as caching data to help us improve our Services, allowing you to register for our Services, tracking activity to help us and our advertisers advertise to you in accordance with this policy, and counting the number of people who view advertisements on our Services.As an alternative to cookies, we may employ “local storage” technologies in our Services.

What are the different types of cookies?

  • Session cookies are temporary cookies that are only stored on your device for the duration of your visit to a website and are removed when you exit your browser.
  • Persistent cookies are saved on your device after the browser has closed for a certain length of time and are used when we (or a third party) need to identify you for a future browsing session.
  • The website you’re visiting sets first-party cookies.
    Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by other companies and are utilized in our services. These include cookies from third-party analytics services that help us better understand how our sites are used, as well as cookies set by advertisers to track the effectiveness of their ads. Selected social media businesses may also place third-party cookies to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks, which may have an impact on the content and messages you see on other websites.

What is the purpose of cookies?

What’s New Dawg, in collaboration with our trusted partners, uses cookies in conjunction with other data we collect for a variety of purposes, including:

1. ‘Strictly Necessary’ or ‘Essential’ Cookies

These cookies are required for the proper operation of our Services. Parts of our websites would not work without certain cookies. These cookies do not track your online activity, do not remember your preferences beyond your current session, and do not collect information about you that could be used for marketing purposes. These are often session cookies, which expire when you close your browser window.

2.Functional Cookies

Functional cookies are required for the proper operation of our Services. They’re used to remember your preferences on our websites and to give you more personalized services. We can’t identify you because the information collected by these cookies is normally anonymized. Functional cookies do not track your online activity or collect information that could be used to sell advertising, but they do aid in the delivery of advertisements. They could be set by us or by third-party companies whose services we’ve included on our page.

3.Measurement and Analytical Performance Cookies 

Analytical performance cookies are used to track how well our Services are doing, such as determining how many pageviews and unique users a website receives. Third-party web analytics services are possible. These cookies supply us with information that allows us to analyze user behavior patterns and improve user experience or indicate portions of the website that may require maintenance.

The information is anonymous (i.e. it cannot be used to identify you and does not contain personal information such as your name and email address) and it is only used for statistical purposes.

4. Targeting or ‘Behavioral Advertising’ Cookies

These cookies, which may be placed on your device by us or our trusted third-party service providers, remember that you have visited a website and use that information to provide you with content or advertising which is tailored to your interests. This is known as online behavioural advertising (OBA), and it works by grouping together people with similar interests based on their web surfing habits. Your web surfing history can be used to infer information about you (e.g., your age, gender, and so on), and this information can also be used to tailor advertisements on websites to you. The content and adverts you see may be less relevant to you and your interests if these cookies are disabled. Please check How can users control or opt-out of cookies for more information about OBA, including how to opt-out of these cookies.

5.Cookies from social media

The AdChoices programme of the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (DAAC) allows you to opt out of having your information used for interest-based advertising. Visit https://youradchoices.ca/ for additional information on this programme.

The DAAC has a tool that generates a list of third-party advertising organizations that are actively collecting data from your browser for the purposes of targeted advertising and are members of the DAAC’s Self-Regulatory Program for Online Interest-Based Advertising. You can use the tool to unsubscribe from interest-based ads.

It’s important to note that opting out through these channels does not guarantee that you won’t encounter adverts in the future. These companies will continue to send you other types of adverts, as well as any type of ad from non-participating companies. Your information may still be collected by the websites you visit for other purposes.

We’ll still know how many of our emails are opened, and we’ll get your IP address, which is a unique identifier for your device or other access device, but we won’t be able to identify you.
