Below we explain how Geezgo, our partners, and other third parties use these technologies, your privacy settings and the other options you have.
A pixel is a small amount of code on a web page or in an email notification. As many services do, we use pixels to learn whether you've interacted with certain web or email content. This helps us measure and improve our services and personalize your experience on Geezgo.
Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. We use local storage to customize what we show you based on your past interactions with Geezgo.
Geezgo uses these technologies to deliver, measure, and improve our services in various ways. These uses generally fall into one of the following categories:
For example, these technologies help authenticate your access to Geezgo and prevent unauthorized parties from accessing your account. They also let us show you appropriate content through our services.
For example, cookies help us remember your preferred language or country that you are in. We can then provide you with Geezgo content in your preferred language without having to ask you each time you visit Geezgo. We can also customize content based on your country, such as showing you what topics are trending near you, or to withhold certain content based on applicable local laws. Learn more about Trends and country withheld content.
For example, local storage tells us which parts of your Geezgo timeline you have viewed already so that we can show you the appropriate new content. Cookies can help us make smarter and more relevant suggestions about who you might enjoy following based on your visits to websites that have integrated Geezgo buttons or widgets. Learn more below about tailored suggestions and your privacy controls, which include your Geezgo account settings and Do Not Track browser setting.
Geezgo and third parties use these technologies on Geezgo's websites, applications, and services and on other websites, applications, and services that have integrated Geezgo's services, including third-party properties that incorporate Geezgo's advertising technology. This includes our ad partners' websites and sites that use Geezgo buttons or widgets, like our Stream or Follow buttons. Third parties may also use these technologies, for example, when you click on links from Geezgo websites or applications, view or interact with third-party content from within our services, or visit third-party websites that incorporate Geezgo's advertising technology.
