What are cookies?
Cookies are small files, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded onto your computer or mobile device when you visit certain websites. When you return to these websites, or visit other websites that use the same cookies, the websites recognise these cookies and your browsing device. A cookie cannot read data off your hard drive or read cookie files created by other websites.
Cookies set by the website operator are called “first-party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website operator are called “third-party cookies”. The parties that set third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the Instacoins website and when it visits certain other websites and/or mobile apps.
We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that IP addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. If we combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
When you access our Services, we or companies we work with may place cookies on your computer or other device. These technologies help us better understand user behaviour, and inform us about which parts of our websites people have visited.
We use first-party and third-party cookies to recognise you as an Instacoins customer, customise Instacoins Services, content, and advertising, to measure promotional effectiveness, and to collect information about your computer or other access device to mitigate risk, help prevent fraud, and promote trust and safety.

We use session cookies when you access our website or content. Session cookies expire and no longer have any effect when you log out of your account or close your browser.
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 stop browsing.
