You can review your cookie preferences and update your choices by visiting our Cookie Preferences Manager. This is in addition to any other controls that may be available to you.
1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Browser cookies are text files with small pieces of data downloaded onto your computer or mobile device. Browser cookies and other similar technologies (collectively called “Cookies” in this Cookies Policy) enable websites and apps to store information or facilitate access to information stored on your device to enable certain features and distinguish you from other visitors. These technologies are used by most website and app providers to let users navigate between pages efficiently, ensure security of the webpage or application, understand how their websites are used, remember user preferences and generally improve the user experience. More information on cookies and their use can be found at www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
When you access our Sites and Services, we, or companies we work with, may place cookies and similar technologies (such as web beacons, software development kits (“SDKs”), pixels, APIs, mobile advertising identifiers, tags and local storage) on your computer or other device.
Strictly Necessary purposes
Strictly Necessary Cookies are essential for our Services to function and therefore cannot be switched off. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in, or filling in forms. These also include cookies we may rely on for security purposes, such as to prevent unauthorized access attempts. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies at any time, but some features of our Services may not work.
We use these Cookies to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Services. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the Sites and Apps, and to resolve any errors that occur on the Services quickly to provide you with a better experience. For example, Cookies like our third party JSESSIONID cookie are used to provide analytics on how our Apps perform. This cookie lasts for the duration of your browsing session.
We use these Cookies to remember the choices you make (e.g. country or language selection) and to tailor our Services to your preferences. For example, our first party cm_default_preferences cookie remembers your cookie preferences and lasts for 6 months.
Coinbase uses first party and third party cookies for advertising and measurement purposes.
These advertising cookies are used to serve personalized advertising on our Services or to serve advertising on other third party sites that may be relevant to you or your interests. This means that after you have been to our Services, you may see advertisements about our Services elsewhere on the Internet.
These cookies are also used to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. The information collected through this process does not enable these third party service providers to identify your name, contact details or other personal information that directly identifies you. For example, our Google Analytics cookie, _gat_gtag, is used to surface targeted Coinbase ads on Google and measure conversion rates. This cookie lasts for 1 minute.
Our third-party service providers may place cookies on your browser or device to help us keep our Services safe and secure, promote our Services on other apps and websites, and enable us, our advertisers and measurement partners to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
3. HOW LONG WILL COOKIES STAY ON MY BROWSING DEVICE?
The length of time a cookie will stay on your browsing device depends on whether it is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you close your browser. Persistent cookies are set to automatically expire after a defined duration (for example, a few days, weeks or months).
4. HOW TO MANAGE COOKIES, SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES AND TARGETED ONLINE MOBILE ADVERTISING
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies (except strictly necessary cookies).
You can enable or disable categories of cookies by visiting our Cookie Preferences Manager. This includes both first party and third party cookies. You can use the browser with which you are viewing this website to enable, disable or delete cookies. To do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the "Help", "Tools" or "Edit" settings). However, please note, if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access secure areas of our Services. Also, if you disable cookies, other parts of our Services may not function properly.
