What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, Sittin Pretty) are called “first-party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies”. Third-party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The third parties that set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.
Cookies served through our Sittin Pretty Sites and/or Applications
The specific types of first and third-party cookies served through our Sittin Pretty Sites or Apps and the purposes they perform are described in further detail below:
Essential Website Cookies

You can block or delete them by changing your browser settings, as described under the heading “How can I control cookies?” in this Cookie Statement.

Although important to us, these cookies are non-essential to the use of any of our Sittin Pretty Sites or Apps. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.

Advertising (Targeting) Cookies
These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you and your interests. They also perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests. For further information, see the section of the Cookie Statement entitled “Targeted online advertising”.

Other tracking technologies
We and our third-party partners may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons, SDKs, pixels (or “clear gifs”) and other tracking technologies. Pixels are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Sittin Pretty Sites or Apps, in the case of web beacons, opened an email that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of visitors from one page within our Sittin Pretty Sites or Apps to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Sittin Pretty Sites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to serve targeted advertisements to you and others like you, to improve site and app performance, and to measure the success of marketing campaigns. While you may not have the ability to specifically reject or disable these tracking technologies, in many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly; accordingly, in those instances, declining cookies will impair the functionality of these technologies.
Targeted online advertising
We have engaged one or more third-party service providers to track and analyse both individualised usage and volume statistical information from interactions with our Sittin Pretty Sites and apps. We also partner with one or more third parties (such as advertisers and ad networks) to display advertising on our Sittin Pretty Sites and Apps and/or to manage and serve advertising on other sites.
Mailchiimp email campaigns
We use Mailchimp to send out email campaigns. Mailchimp automatically places single-pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in emails sent by their platform. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us to recognise when Contacts have opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each Contact’s email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. Mailchimp uses this data to create reports about how an email campaign performed and what actions Contacts took.

How can I control cookies?
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.
Disabling Most Interest Based Advertising: Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt-out of Interest Based Advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
Mobile Advertising: You can opt-out of having your mobile advertising identifiers used for certain types of Interest Based Advertising, including those performed by us, by accessing the settings in your Apple or Android mobile device and following the most recent published instructions. If you opt-out, we will remove all data about you and no further data collection or tracking will occur. The random ID we (or our third-party partners) had previously assigned to you will also be removed. This means that if at a later stage, you decide to opt-in, we will not be able to continue and track you using the same ID as before, and you will for all practical purposes be a new end user to our system.
