Types of cookies and how we use them

There are different types of cookies that perform different functions, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and ensuring the ads that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. Cookies may come from us (first party cookies) or from third parties whose services we use. Any personal information that we collect through the use of cookies is obtained through notice to you and through your consent. We (and our authorised service providers) use the following types of cookies:

Analytics Cookies

We use these cookies to analyse how the website and app are accessed, used or performing. These cookies collect information about how visitors use our services, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from webpages. We use this information to maintain, operate, and continually improve the website and application. These cookies are set using third-party web analytics software. We use Microsoft Application Insights which allows us to collect information about how visitors use our website.

We will not pass this data to third parties.

Targeted Advertising Cookies

We use these cookies on behalf of our partners to make ads shown on other website more effective. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. The cookies remember your activities on our website or application and this information may be shared with our partner organisations.

How to control cookie preferences

You can change your cookie preferences at any time on our website by clicking on the ‘Cookies’ icon/consent banner. You can adjust the available sliders to ‘On’ or ‘Off’, then clicking ‘Ok’. Alternatively, you can adjust your browser settings. Please note that different browsers may have different procedures. You may need to refresh your page for your settings to take effect.

On our app, you can amend your settings to disable cookies by going to app.meandu.com on a mobile device, selecting the profile menu in the top right corner and navigating to Privacy settings. You can adjust the available sliders to ‘On’ or ‘Off’, then clicking ‘Ok’.

On your mobile device, your operating system may provide you with additional options to opt out of interest based advertising or to otherwise reset your mobile identifiers. For example, you may use the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting (on iOS devices) or a setting to “Opt out of Interest-Based Ads” (on Android) which allows you to limit the use of information about your use of apps for purposes of serving ads targeted to your interests.
