Below we explain how ZiMovi, our partners, and other third parties use these technologies, your privacy settings and the other options you have.
What are cookies, pixels, and local storage?
A pixel is a small amount of code on a web page or in an email notification. As many services do, we use pixels to learn whether you’ve interacted with certain web or email content. This helps us measure and improve our services and personalize your experience on ZiMovi.
Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. We use local storage to customize what we show you based on your past interactions with ZiMovi.
Why does ZiMovi use these technologies?
ZiMovi uses these technologies to deliver, measure, and improve our services in various ways. These uses generally fall into one of the following categories:
Authentication and security:
To log you into ZiMovi
To protect your security
To help us detect and fight spam, abuse, and other activities that violate the ZiMovi Rules
For example, these technologies help authenticate your access to ZiMovi and prevent unauthorized parties from accessing your account. They also let us show you appropriate content through our services.
To remember information about your browser and your preferences
For example, cookies help us remember your preferred language or country that you are in. We can then provide you with ZiMovi content in your preferred language without having to ask you each time you visit ZiMovi. We can also customize content based on your country, such as showing you what topics are trending near you, or to withhold certain content based on applicable local laws. Learn more about Trends and country withheld content.
Analytics and research:
To help us improve and understand how people use our services, including ZiMovi buttons and widgets, and ZiMovi Ads
To customize our services with more relevant content, like tailored trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to follow
For example, local storage tells us which parts of your ZiMovi timeline you have viewed already so that we can show you the appropriate new content. Cookies can help us make smarter and more relevant suggestions about who you might enjoy following based on your visits to websites that have integrated ZiMovi buttons or widgets. Learn more about tailored suggestions and your privacy controls, which include your ZiMovi account settings and Do Not Track browser setting.
To help us deliver ads, measure their performance, and make them more relevant to you based on criteria like your activity on ZiMovi and visits to our ad partners’ websites
Our third-party advertising providers, including Google Analytics for Display Advertisers, also use these technologies for marketing on ZiMovi’s behalf, including the delivery of interest-based ads and measurement of their performance. If you do not want our advertising providers to use your visits to ZiMovi websites to show you personalized ads on our behalf, you can opt out using your Do Not Track browser setting. You can also opt out of Google Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on, and out of interest-based Google ads using Google’s Ads Settings.
Where are these technologies used?
ZiMovi uses these technologies on our own websites and services and on other websites that have integrated our services. This includes our advertising and platform partners’ websites and sites that use ZiMovi buttons or widgets, like our Tweet or follow buttons. Third parties may also use these technologies, for example, when you interact with their content from within our services, like when you click a link or stream media on ZiMovi from a third-party service, and to help with the delivery of ads shown on and off of ZiMovi.
What are my privacy options?
For tailoring suggestions on ZiMovi: If you do not want ZiMovi to tailor suggestions for you based on your recent visits to websites that have integrated ZiMovi buttons or widgets, you can turn off this feature using your ZiMovi account settings or Do Not Track browser setting. Learn more here.
For tailoring ads on ZiMovi: If you do not want ZiMovi to tailor ads based on our ad partners’ information, including cookies, you can turn off this feature using your ZiMovi account settings. Then ZiMovi will not match your account to cookie or other information shared by our ad partners for tailoring ads. You can also use your Do Not Track browser setting to turn off tailored ads. ZiMovi’s ad partners offer additional privacy choices, including those at aboutads.info/choices. Learn more here.
For using cookies: You can modify your settings in most web browsers to accept or deny all cookies, or to request your permission each time a site attempts to set a cookie. Although cookies are not required for some parts of our services, ZiMovi may not work properly if you disable cookies entirely. For example, you cannot log into ZiMovi.com if you’ve disabled all cookie use.
