7. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
“Cookies” are small amounts of data generated by a website and saved by your web browser. Browsers store the data temporarily and return it to the server on subsequent visits or requests. Web beacons are a small image file (usually a transparent 1×1 pixel image) used for tracking purposes. They may be placed in a webpage or HTML email to record when the content was loaded. We use the information collected by web beacons to statistically monitor how many people are using our Services. We utilize both cookies, pixels, and web beacons to help us keep our Services secure, measure the performance of our Services, understand how visitors interact with them, count numbers of visitors, and improve the user experience. For example, cookies, pixels, and web beacons may be embedded in videos or web pages to collect certain types of information from your device or web browser in order to determine if you have viewed a particular video, web page, or advertisement.
Do Not Track Requests. Some web browsers have Do Not Track (“DNT”) or similar features that allow you to tell each website you visit that you do not want your activities on that website tracked. Currently, Rumble does not respond to DNT signals and will continue to collect information about you even if your browser’s DNT functionality is activated. By selecting the DNT option on your browser, this may not affect our collection of information related to cookie or other tracking technologies.
