Cookies and how we use them
What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small files that are sent to and stored on your computer by the Websites you visit. Cookies are stored in the directory of your browser. The next time you visit the Website, your browser will read the cookie and forward the information to the Website or element that originally set the cookie. For more information about these technologies and how they work, see allaboutcookies.org.
These cookies are essential to the operation of our Websites and the key to providing you with a seamless experience. You can navigate continuously, for example by remembering the language choices that you have made and securing by authenticating and preserving parts of the domain. These cookies also record products of interest to you when you are redirected to an operator site for a potential purchase.
These cookies enable us to improve our Websites by checking how they are used. We perform analytical profiling to determine when users read a particular article (to gain insights into what is popular) or when a video file is half viewed or aborted. We also review where content is accessed to determine how to better organize our sites for the best user experience. We count clicks on “Like” and “Tweet” plugins and what content was shared or referenced from our Websites.
These cookies help make our content as personalized as possible, for example, by showing you banners and corresponding recommendations. We examine what type of reference was used to reach our Websites, such as e-mail campaigns or links from a referral Website, so we can gauge the effectiveness of our promotions and advertising campaigns.
We use these cookies to dynamically present Blocks99.com ads on both Blocks99.com and selected third-party websites.
How can I manage cookies?

In addition to cookie management, browsers typically allow you to control files that are similar to cookies, such as local shared objects, e.g. by activating the privacy mode of the browser. Blocks99.com uses third-party managed advertising cookies to promote its products on both Blocks99.com and non-Blocks99.com sites. You may be able to disable certain third-party managed advertising cookies through third-party cookie management Websites.
