What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables EV.CENTER features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to EV.CENTER, and serve relevant ads based on your recent browsing history.
When does EV.CENTER place cookies?
Any browser visiting our website will receive cookies from us automatically. We also place cookies in your browser when you visit non-EV.CENTER sites that host our content.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit EV.CENTER, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with EV.CENTER faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the EV.CENTER sites and bring customized features to you.
How are cookies used for advertising purposes?
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third-party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by EV.CENTER may also set third party cookies.
Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:
- provide more relevant, interest-based advertising
- provide aggregate reports of ads activity to advertisers and websites hosting the ads
- help website and app owners understand how visitors engage with their sites or apps
- detect and defend against fraud and other risks to protect users and partners
- improve our Services and other products
We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers unless you have given us permission to do so.
What third-party cookies does EV.CENTER use?
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?
If you do not want to receive cookies, you can also change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. If you use EV.CENTER without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on the EV.CENTER Website. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including EV.CENTER cookies. Please note that the EV.CENTER site will not work properly without cookies.
To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit wikipedia.org, www.allaboutcookies.org, or www.aboutcookies.org. You may exercise control over the use of certain advertising-related cookies by using the Digital Advertising Alliance’s AdChoices program website.
