How we use cookies
WattsApp uses cookies (or Local Shared Objects or “flash cookies,” or similar technologies) to recognize you when you return to our services and remember your preferences and settings, enabling you to sign in, providing interest-based information during your visit, combating fraud, analyzing our performance, and ensuring your privacy and security when you use secure areas of our sites, or e-commerce areas. We may also collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address or device identifier for monitoring and improving the effectiveness of our services and improving security on our services.

Google Analytics
WattsApp uses Google Analytics to obtain statistics on how our websites are being used, to help us improve our online services.  For example, we use cookies to count the number of unique visitors to a web page or service and to gather data that helps with load balancing to ensure that our websites remain up and running at all times.

This service may also collect information regarding the use of other apps, websites, and online resources. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to
google.com/policies/privacy/partners, and opt out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Pixel tags
Pixel tags are tiny graphic images or other web programming code that tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our website. Pixel tags and similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors, to monitor how users navigate the sites, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened, to count how many particular links were actually viewed. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read.

Embedded Scripts
An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with our services, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to a website, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

Click Through URLs
In some of our email messages we use a "click-through URL" linked to content on our services. When a customer clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination webpage. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
