It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or mobile application. Cookies are then sent back to the originating site on each subsequent visit or to another site recognizing those cookies. You can find out more information about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.

Cookies are widely used to make sites work or work more efficiently and provide information to the website or platform owners.

We use cookies to enhance the online experience of our visitors (for example, by remembering your language and/or content preferences) and better understand how our site is used. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited our site before or whether you are a new visitor.

 

What types of cookies do we use?

There are two broad categories of cookies:

First-party cookies, served directly by MrFreeTools.com to your computer or mobile device. They are used only by MrFreeTools.com to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our site.

Third-party cookies, which are served by a service provider on our site, and can be used by the service provider to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other sites. Third-party cookies are most commonly used for Platform analytics or advertising purposes.

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are ‘session cookies’, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open. Those cookies are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are ‘permanent cookies,’ meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. The site can use them to recognize your computer or mobile device when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.

 

Why do we use cookies?

We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons for our Websites and/or App and/or Platform to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites and/or App and/or Platform. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites and/or App and/or Platform for analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

Pixel tags measure the success of our marketing campaigns and compile statistics about usage of the site to manage our content more effectively. The information we collect using pixel tags is not linked to our users’ personal data.
