Cookie Notice

This Cookie Notice explains how NOTA Collective, Inc. ("NOTA", "we", "us" or "our") uses cookies and similar technologies in connection with the (the "Site"), and any other website that we own or control (collectively, the "Sites"), and the purposes for using them.

For more information about how we collect, use and share your personal information, see our Privacy Notice, which will apply to the processing of such personal information, as defined in the Privacy Notice.

Our Site uses cookies, in combination with pixels, local storage objects, and similar devices (collectively, "cookies" unless otherwise noted) to distinguish you from other users of the website.

You do not need to allow cookies to visit most of the website. However, enabling cookies may allow for a more tailored browsing experience and is required for certain parts of the website to work. In the majority of cases, a cookie does not provide us with any of your personal information.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files containing a unique identifier that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies and similar technologies (which include pixels, tags, web beacons and software development kits ("SDKs") and local browser storage technologies) (together "cookies") enable operators of sites/apps to recognize your device and collect information from it when you interact with them. They use this information to understand how the site/app is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving your browsing experience. Cookies are also used to make the advertising you see online more relevant to your interests.

Our Sites may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them or they expire).

We use two broad categories of cookies:

  1. First party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which we use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Sites; and
  2. Third party cookies, which are served by service providers or business partners on our Sites, and can be used by these parties to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites. Third party cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including site analytics, advertising and social media features. We do not control how these third parties use your information, which is subject to their own privacy policies. See the table below for details about the use of third party cookies and similar technologies on our Site.

What is a mobile advertising identifier?

Most major phones and tablets include a mobile advertising identifier (e.g., an IDFA on iOS and an ADID on Android) that is a unique device identifier that enables third parties to connect you to your activities on that app to your activities on other unrelated apps and websites. This is generally used for personalizing advertising and measurement of advertising campaigns. Even without a mobile advertising identifier, you would still see advertising but those ads may be less relevant to you.
