Tracking - FullStoryFull Story


We and our advertising suppliers use these technologies to personalise the advertising you see. They work by seeing how you use our services and other websites. They use that information to predict what might interest you. You might see personalised advertising on our services, on other websites or in marketing emails.


These technologies let you set and store your preferences on our websites and apps (for example, when you log in the post comments). We also use them to detect bugs and make our websites and apps work better. 


Sometimes we advertise on social media. We use these technologies so that social media platforms can recognise you as one of our users and display advertising to you on our behalf.

Social media platforms also use these technologies on our websites and apps when you use your social media account to log in to our services. Sometimes they gather information about your behaviour to display personalised advertising to you.

Updates to this policy

We regularly change how we use these technologies. We’ll keep you up to date on what we’re doing by updating this page, so make sure you check back often.
