We are the publishing group Banyan Tree Infomedia LLP. In this Notice we will refer to the mobile applications as Apps and use the term Sites to refer to our websites.
The information generated from your browsing, helps us to understand how people use our websites, how we can improve them and also make sure advertisers get a good return on their investment. Their advertising funds our activities and the content you read for free.
Like most websites and mobile applications, we use automatic data collection technology when you visit one of our Sites or use one of our Apps. This notice explains how we use so called “cookies” and other related technologies and how you can manage the behaviour of these cookies.
There is a detailed description of how we use the data we collect in our Privacy Notice please click here.
Cookies are small data files sent from a website to your web browser. They are stored in your web browser’s cache and allow a website or a third party to recognise your browser or mobile device. Mobile devices and browsers can be shared by a number of people, so cookies are not always wholly related to individuals.
We use three major types of cookies:
Analytics Cookies hold information as you view different pages of the website and help us to build up a profile of how our readers use the website. They help us to make the website work as efficiently as possible and provide better content and services in the future. We may also use analytics cookies to measure the effectiveness of advertising on the Sites and the Apps and elsewhere on the internet.
Personalisation and Service Cookies remember your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. They remember your registration and login details and your settings and preferences. They are used to ensure you don’t have to login every time you use your browser to comment on articles and to ensure interactive services work effectively. They are also used to recommend content we think you'll be interested in, based on what you've looked at before.
Advertising Cookies are placed by us and our advertising partners to deliver more relevant advertising. Our Sites, Apps and services are predominately free to consume, and in exchange we sell our advertising space to allow us to create high quality content and bring you the services you value. Cookies are a vital part of that value exchange.
These cookies may gather information about your browsing activity on our sites and for third parties, across different Sites and across different visits. They allow us and advertisers to show more relevant ads and allow advertisers to manage how many times a device sees an advert. They might also allow the advertiser to tailor advertising to you when you visit our Sites. Advertising Cookies are usually stored until you delete them or they expire based on the time period set in each cookie, which is normally around 30 days.
The third party advertisers are required to follow the applicable laws. However, Banyan Tree Infomedia LLP does not have control over the third party organisations that place cookies, who each have their own cookie and privacy policies. We aim to be transparent on who we work with. You can find a list of our partners and option to control advertising cookies in our cookie management tool here.
If you opt out of Advertising cookies, you are not opting out of seeing advertising! You will still see plenty of adverts. They just may not be as relevant to you and your interests. See ‘Manage Cookies’ below for more information about “opting out”.
You can manage which cookies are set on your device, but if you disable cookies, some parts of our website Throughtheclutter.com may not work properly. Some cookies are essential for the operation of the website throughtheclutter.com.
