you visit non-Soohba sites that host our plugins (for example, Soohba’s “Share” button) or tags.
What types of cookies does Soohba use?

existing user, so it’s easier to return to Soohba or interact with our services without signing in again.

one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons).

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission
(FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control
the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators
to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been
adopted to this date. As such, Soohba does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
How are cookies used for advertising purposes?
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more
effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers,
understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web
browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks
can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served
by Soohba may also set third party cookies.
