Information about cookies

What is a cookie
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's server and is stored on your device´s hard drive. Each website or third party service provider used by the website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser´s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website or third party service provider to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites or other third party service providers. A cookie will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what´s in your shopping basket.

What is a browser
A browser is an application that allows you to surf the internet. The most common browsers are Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari. Most browsers are secure and offer quick and easy ways to delete information like cookies.

What do cookies do?
Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the website to your interests. Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse your use of our site and help us to provide you with a better user experience.

Change your browser settings
You can choose how cookies are handled by your device via your browser settings. The most popular browsers allow users to a) accept all cookies, b) to notify you when a cookie is issued, or c) to not receive cookies at any time. If you choose not to receive cookies at any time, the website may not function properly and certain services will not be provided, spoiling your experience of the website. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

Types of cookies

First party cookies
First party cookies are set by the website you are visiting and they can only be read by that site.
Our website the-real-africa.com doesn´t use first party cookies.

Third party cookies
Third party cookies are set by other organisations that we use for different services. For example, the-real-africa.com uses external analytics services and these suppliers may set cookies on Lonely Planet’s behalf in order to report what’s popular and what’s not. The website you are visiting may also contain content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Flickr and these sites may set their own cookies.

Session cookies
Session Cookies are stored only for the duration of your visit to a website and these are deleted from your device when your browsing session ends.

Persistent cookies
This type of cookie is saved on your device for a fixed period. Persistent cookies are used where we need to know who you are for more than one usage session. For example, if you have asked us to remember preferences like your location or your username.

Flash cookies
Many websites use Adobe Flash Player to deliver video and game content to their users. Adobe utilise their own cookies, which are not manageable through your browser settings but are used by the Flash Player for similar purposes, such as storing preferences or tracking users.

Flash Cookies work in a different way to web browser cookies; rather than having individual cookies for particular jobs, a website is restricted to storing all data in one cookie. You can control how much data, if any, may be stored in that cookie but you cannot choose what type of information is allowed to be stored. You can manage which websites can store information in Flash cookies on your device via the website storage settings panel on the Adobe website.

Web beacons, clear GIFs, page tags and web bugs
These are all terms used to describe a particular form of technology implemented by many websites in order to help them to analyse how their site is being used and, in turn, to improve your experience of their site. They may also be used to target any advertising being served on the web page you are viewing.

A web beacon (or similar) usually takes the form of a small, transparent image, which is embedded in a web page or an email. They are used in conjunction with cookies and send information such as your IP address, when you viewed the page or email, from what device and your (broad) location.

How do we use cookies?

First party cookies
First party cookies are set by the website you are visiting and they can only be read by that site.
Our website the-real-africa.com doesn´t use first party cookies.

Cookies are tiny text files that are stored on a user´s browser. Most cookies contain a unique identifier called a cookie ID: a string of characters that websites and servers associate with the browser on which the cookie is stored. This allows websites and servers to distinguish the browser from other browsers that store different cookies, and to recognize each browser by its unique cookie ID.

Cookies are widely used by websites and servers to provide many of the basic services we find online. If you shop on a website, a cookie allows the website to remember which items you´ve added to your virtual shopping cart. If you set preferences on a website, a cookie allows the website to remember your preferences the next time you visit. Or if you sign into a website, the website might use a cookie to recognize your browser later on, so that you don´t have to sign in again. Cookies also allow websites to collect data about user activity, such as how many unique visitors a page receives per month. All these applications depend on the information stored in cookies.

A cookie is a small text file stored via your browser onto your computer or mobile device. Each cookie is unique to your browser and can be used by a website to improve the user experience, such as your user preferences or the contents of your basket.

Some websites use cookies to allow adverts or marketing messages to be shown based on your location or your browsing habits.

Cookies stored by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) can only be read by that website. Cookies may also be set by other websites that show content on the page you are viewing (‘third-party cookies’).---

Google Adsense
This website uses Google AdSense, a service to integrate advertisement of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google AdSense uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on the user’s computer and allow an analysis of the usage of the website.

The information about the usage of this website (including IP address of the user) derived from the cookies and web beacons and the delivery of advertisement are transmitted to a server of Google in USA and stored there. This information might be shared by Google with contracting parties of Google. Google, however, does not merge the user’s IP address together with other stored data of the user.

The user can prevent the installation of the cookies through respective settings at the user’s browser; however, the provider depicts that the website might not be fully functional in these cases. By using this website the user gives the user’s consent to the processing of the collected data by Google in the prior described manner and for the prior named purpose.

YouTube
YouTube sets up cookies in Youtube´s domain. The following cookies are used: use_hitbox, visitor_info1_live and PREF. YouTube may still set cookies on the user´s computer once the visitor clicks on the YouTube video player.

YouTubes privacy policy (regularly subjected to change) explains what YouTube does with the personal information collected with these cookies.

    Google
    This website uses Google Adsense to display advertising. As a third party vendor, Google uses cookies to serve ads on the-real-africa.com. Google uses something called the DoubleClick DART cookie to enable it to serve ads to visitors based on visits to this site and other sites on the Internet. Visitors to this site can opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.











    The DoubleClick cookie



    The DoubleClick cookie is used by Google in ads that are served on the websites of its partners – such as websites displaying AdSense ads, or participating in Google certified ad networks. When users visit a partner's website and either view or click on an ad, a cookie may be dropped on the end user's browser. My privacy policy

    Your privacy policy should include the following information:

    Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to your website. Google's use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users that are based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites across the Internet. Users may opt out of using the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting Ads Settings. (Alternatively, you can direct users to opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies for interest-based advertising by visiting aboutads.info.)

    If you have not opted out of third-party ad serving, the cookies of other third-party vendors or ad networks may also be used to serve ads on your site, and should be disclosed in your privacy policy in the following manner.

    Notify your site visitors of the third-party vendors and ad networks serving ads on your site.

    Provide links to the appropriate vendor and ad network websites.

    Inform your users that they may visit those websites to opt out of the use of cookies for interest-based advertising (if the vendor or ad network offers this capability). Alternatively, you can direct users to opt out of some third-party vendors' use of cookies for interest-based advertising by visiting aboutads.info.

    Because publisher sites and laws across countries vary, we're unable to suggest specific privacy policy language. However, you may wish to review resources such as the Network Advertising Initiative for guidance on drafting a privacy policy.

    What are cookies?

    Cookies are tiny text files that are stored on a user’s browser. Most cookies contain a unique identifier called a cookie ID: a string of characters that websites and servers associate with the browser on which the cookie is stored. This allows websites and servers to distinguish the browser from other browsers that store different cookies, and to recognize each browser by its unique cookie ID.

    Cookies are widely used by websites and servers to provide many of the basic services we find online. If you shop on a website, a cookie allows the website to remember which items you’ve added to your virtual shopping cart. If you set preferences on a website, a cookie allows the website to remember your preferences the next time you visit. Or if you sign into a website, the website might use a cookie to recognize your browser later on, so that you don’t have to sign in again. Cookies also allow websites to collect data about user activity, such as how many unique visitors a page receives per month. All these applications depend on the information stored in cookies.

    How does DoubleClick use cookies?

    DoubleClick uses cookies to improve advertising. Some common applications are to target advertising based on what’s relevant to a user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen.

    The cookie ID in each DoubleClick cookie is essential to these applications. For example, DoubleClick uses cookie IDs to keep a log of which ads show to which browsers. When it’s time to serve an ad to a browser, DoubleClick can use the browser’s cookie ID to check which DoubleClick ads have already been delivered to that particular browser. That’s how DoubleClick avoids showing ads the user has already seen. In the same way, cookie IDs allow DoubleClick to log conversions related to ad requests—such as when a user views a DoubleClick ad and later uses the same browser to visit the advertiser’s website and make a purchase.

    DoubleClick cookies contain no personally identifiable information. Sometimes the cookie contains an additional identifier that is similar in appearance to the cookie ID. This identifier is used to identify an ad campaign to which a user was exposed previously; but no personally identifiable information is stored by DoubleClick in the cookie. When does DoubleClick send cookies to a browser?

    DoubleClick sends a cookie to the browser after any impression, click, or other activity that results in a call to the DoubleClick server. If the browser accepts the cookie, the cookie is stored on the browser.

    Most commonly, DoubleClick sends a cookie to the browser when a user visits a page that shows DoubleClick ads. Pages with DoubleClick ads include ad tags that instruct browsers to request ad content from the DoubleClick ad server. When the server delivers the ad content, it also sends a cookie. But a page doesn’t have to show DoubleClick ads for this to happen; it just needs to include DoubleClick ad tags, which might load a click tracker or impression pixel instead.

    Notify users about cookies

    All publishers must clearly display a privacy policy notifying visitors about the site's use of cookies. In addition, all publishers must comply with applicable laws regarding the collection of information from site visitors.

    Third-party and first-party cookies

    Cookies are categorized as third-party or first-party depending on whether they are associated with the domain of the site a user visits. Note that this doesn’t change the name or content of the actual cookie. The difference between a third-party cookie and a first-party cookie is only a matter of which domain a browser is pointed toward. The exact same kind of cookie might be sent in either scenario.

    Opting out

    If a user opts out using the Ads Settings, the unique DoubleClick cookie ID on the user’s browser is overwritten with the phrase “OPT_OUT”. Because there is no longer a unique cookie ID, the opt-out cookie can’t be associated with a particular browser.
