About this cookie policy

This Cookie Policy explains what cookies are and how we use them, the types of cookies we use i.e, the information we collect using cookies and how that information is used, and how to control the cookie preferences. For further information on how we use, store, and keep your personal data secure, see our Privacy Policy.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters that a website transfers and stores on your device when the website is loaded on your browser. These cookies help us make the website function properly, make it more secure, provide a better user experience, understand how the website performs, and to analyze what works and where it needs improvement.

How do we use cookies?

As with most of the online services, our website also uses cookies for several purposes. A cookie may either belong to the first-party (“We”, “GeekGong”) or a third-party provider (parties other than GeekGong), who facilitates its services to GeekGong. Some of the uses of cookies operated by third parties may include but not limited to analytics purposes, such as monitoring and analyze usage patterns, analyze and prevent fraudulent traffic or other suspicious activities, personalize ad serving, enabling certain features, etc. In order to create a user-friendly experience, some of our third-party promotions and advertisements are designed to automatically transmit users’ information onto the third party’s landing page when you choose to “click” upon a third party’s advertisement or promotion. We do not control these third parties or their use of cookies. This means it is not possible for us to manage these cookies. This Policy only covers the use of cookies by GeekGong and does not cover the use of cookies by any third party. Some of these third party cookies are not session based and have varying expiry dates. Please check the respective websites of these third parties for details on how they use cookies. These companies, their privacy policies, and the opt-outs they offer can be found in the table below.

What types of cookies do we use?

Cookies may fall into several categories depending on the purpose which it is used. Below is a list of such categories that will help you understand the purpose of the types of cookies we use:

  • Essential Cookies or Strictly Necessary Cookies
    These cookies are essential to the Service in order for you to make use of the Service and to use its features. Without these cookies, certain features could not function. No information about your browsing habits is gathered by these cookies.
  • Functional Cookies
    These cookies remember how you prefer to use the Service and enable us to improve the way the Service works. Functional Cookies are persistent cookies that the Service remembers when your computer or device comes back to that Service.
  • Analytics Cookies
    Analytics Cookies allow us to improve our services by collecting information about your use of the Service. We use these cookies to help improve how the website works. For example, Analytics Cookies show us statistics, which are the most frequently visited pages on the Service, help us record any difficulties you have with the Service, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. We can’t identify you personally through the use of these cookies, but third parties who provide these cookies may be able to.
  • Behavioral Advertising Cookies
    Behavioral Advertising Cookies are used to deliver relevant advertisements to users both on and off the Service. We analyze what pages you visit on these sites, what products or services you view, and whether you view or click on ads that are shown to you. We may also use a cookie to learn whether someone who saw an ad later visited and took an action on the advertiser’s site. We use this information to send you interest-based ads and may also share this information with third parties. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie to determine whether we’ve shown an ad and how it performed, or provide us with information about how you interact with ads. We may also work with a partner to show you an ad on or off the Service, such as after you have visited a partner’s site or application.
  • Social Media Cookies
    These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our Services or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook and/or Twitter.

How long will cookies stay on my device?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or a “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing a particular website. If you close your browser or close the respective browser tab, any associated session cookies will get deleted automatically. Persistent cookies are cookies that stay on your computer or mobile device for much longer – they remain until you delete them or they reach their expiry date, depending on the purpose of the cookie.
