Why we use cookies

Dare Drop uses cookies and other technologies to help recognize you as a repeat visitor and, to improve the quality of our Services.

How we use cookies

When you visit Dare Drop, our web server sends a cookie to your device, which allows us to recognize your device (but not the specific person using it). By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other account information when, for example, you log in to our Services, we know that the cookie information relates to your user account. Similarly, pixel tags on Dare Drop and in email communications help us identify how your device is being used to interact with Dare Drop content. Some of the tags and cookies used by our Services are served by us, and some are served by trusted partners who are delivering services on our behalf.

Some examples of the types of cookies and other technologies Dare Drop uses:

AuthenticationDare Drop uses authentication cookies and similar technologies to tell us when you’re logged in to Dare Drop. This lets us show you personalized views related to your interests and connect you with Dares like those you may already have backed.SecurityCookies also help keep Dare Drop secure by facilitating security features and allowing us to detect activity that might violate our rules and Terms of Service. These cookies help protect your account from being accessed by anyone other than you, alert you and us when your account is accessed, and provide capabilities that allow us to disable any active sessions you have (for example, when you log out or change your password).LocalizationSome cookies help us provide localized experiences — for example, by making sure you see Dare Drop in your preferred language.Site features and servicesDare Drop uses cookies that provide functionality and help us deliver our products and services — for instance, by storing your preferences or by pre-filling the username field when you log in.PerformancePerformance cookies help us route traffic between servers and understand how Dare Drop is performing, so we can provide you with the best experience possible. We may use third party software development kits (SDK) in our mobile apps to collect information about activity in the app, the type of device and operating system it is running on and how the app is functioning. For example an SDK may send us a report if the app crashes, and reports on which features of the app are used more than others.Analytics and researchCookies and other technologies also help us to understand, improve, and research features and content on the Dare Drop site. For example, we may use cookies to understand how you are discovering Dares or to determine which types of browsers or devices are accessing Dare Drop. You can opt-out of being included in Google Analytics here.Social Media PlatformsCookies and other technologies make interacting with social media platforms more seamless. For example, when you’re signed into social media accounts while you use our Services, these technologies enable you to share content with your social network or, in some cases, log in using your social media credentials. These features are usually controlled by the social media platform you are using and are governed by its separate privacy policies and the preferences you set with that service.MarketingCookies help us deliver targeted advertisements on social media platforms, based on your activity on Dare Drop, including the Dares you’ve backed or creators you’ve followed on Dare Drop, and to track the performance of those ads. This is sometimes referred to as online behavioral advertising. In some cases, our partners may use cookies to provide us with information about your interactions with their services. Those third-party cookies would be subject to the third party service’s policies. You can opt-out of online behavioral advertising. The Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising program provides consumers with the ability to opt-out of having their online behavior recorded and used for advertising purposes. To opt out of having your online behavior collected for advertising purposes, click here. Certain choices you make are both browser- and device-specific.

You can control certain cookies

Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies. How you do so depends on the type of cookie. Certain browsers can be set to reject browser cookies. Blocking or deleting cookies may prevent you from using most of our Services. To find out more about how to enable, disable, or delete cookies from your web browser, please visit here. To control flash cookies, which may be used on certain websites from time to time, you can go here. Why? Because flash cookies cannot be controlled through your browser settings.

Our Do Not Track Policy

Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our sites may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.

Certain options you select are browser- and device-specific.
