We uses cookie and similar technologies, such as pixel tags and clear GIFs (also known as web beacons), on our website (the “Website”) and app to store information or gain access to information stored on your device or computer to improve performance, service, and to better understand your needs. By accepting our and third-party cookies, we and our partners are able to offer you more relevant content, advertising on and outside of our website(s) and apps.You can find out more about cookies and similar technologies, and how we use them, in the information set out below. Any information that we collect will be used in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
If you do not accept the use of these cookies or similar technologies, you can disable them by following the instructions in this policy below or by changing your browser settings so that cookies or similar technologies from our Website or app cannot be placed on your computer or mobile device.
Cookies. Cookies are small text files that uniquely identify your browser or device. The cookie file is stored on your browser. When you return to that website (or visit websites that use the same cookies) these websites recognize the cookies and your browsing device.

We also use technologies which are similar to cookies, such as web beacons/pixels, log files and mobile device identifiers.

Web beacons/Pixels. Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. Web beacons (also called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”) are invisible picture files/small portions of code that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize users when providing the Services. Web beacons collect information such as a record of the page on which they are placed and a timestamp. We use web beacons to track the online usage patterns of our users. We also use clear web beacons in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients, which helps us measure the success of our marketing campaigns, and use web beacons placed by third party advertisers to track whether you have clicked on the adverts they have placed and to measure success. While you may not have the ability to specifically reject or disable these tracking technologies, in many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly; accordingly, in those instances, declining cookies will impair the functionality of these technologies.

Categories of cookies

Cookies do many different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies can tell us, for example, whether you have visited the Website before or whether you are a new visitor. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Just like you can get choc-chip, ginger and peanut butter cookies, you can get different types of online cookies.
There are different categories of cookies, including:
  • First-party cookies – First party cookies, which are served directly by us to your computer or device.
  • Third-party Cookies – Third-party cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf.
Cookies can remain on your device for different periods of time. Some cookies are ‘session cookies’, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are ‘permanent cookies’, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. They can be used by the Website, for example, to recognise your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.

What cookies do we use and how do we use them?

The types of cookies and similar technologies used by us and our partners in connection with the Website can be classified into one of four categories, namely ‘essential cookies’, ‘functionality cookies’, ‘performance cookies’ and ‘targeting cookies’’.
In addition to the cookies we use on this website, we use technologies such as pixel tags in some emails and push notifications which enable us to understand whether you have opened the email and how you have interacted with it.
We also work with third party analytics providers who use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers, and other technologies to collect information about your use of our Services, websites and applications, including your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, pages viewed, time spent on pages or in mobile apps, and links clicked. This information may be used by Soulpetrol and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver content targeted to your interests on our Services, and better understand your online activity.

Targeted Advertising

Our advertising partners use device identifiers and other similar technologies to show you ads that are useful to you. We may share certain information such as your location, browser and cookie data and other data relating to your use of our Service with our business partners to deliver personalized advertisements (“ads”) that may be of interest to you.
Soulpetrol may allow third-party ad servers or ad networks to serve personalized advertisements either on the Service or on third party websites, including Facebook and Google. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser or mobile device, these personalized ads and ad links, and will automatically receive your IP address when they do so. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, device identifiers, location data, and clear gifs, see above) to compile information about your browser’s or device’s visits and usage patterns on the Service, and to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize the advertising content. Soulpetrol does not sell, rent, or share the information we collect directly from you or about you from third parties with these third-party ad servers or ad networks for such parties’ own marketing purposes.
Please note that an advertiser may ask Soulpetrol to show an ad to a certain audience of users (e.g., based on demographics or other interests). In that situation, Soulpetrol determines the target audience and Soulpetrol serves the advertising to that audience and only provides anonymous aggregated data to the advertiser. If you respond to such an ad, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach.
Facebook: We use the pixel function of Facebook Custom Audiences to identify users who have landed on certain pages for the purposes of target group-orientated remarketing and advertising. The Facebook pixel stores a cookie, which means that information about your visit to our Website will be shared with Facebook. Also, as part of the “advanced matching” undertaken by Facebook, other information (such as telephone number, email address, Facebook ID) may be shared with Facebook in a hashed form. These cookies, and the information collected, are used to help Facebook deliver advertising on our behalf to users who have previously visited our Website when they are on Facebook or another platform powered by Facebook Advertising, and to track advertising success. You can modify your Facebook Ad settings to restrict these advertisements. Learn more about the different types of Facebook cookies here: https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies/
