Purposes

LiQD Trading uses Cookie Technologies to recognize your logged-in state on LiQD Trading, to understand what purchases members and visitors are interested in, to make LiQD Trading’s Sites function for you, and to help your browsing experience and use of the Site, Services, and Apps feel more customized. More generally, LiQD Trading uses Cookie Technologies for the following.

Security and Authentication (Strictly Necessary)

Some cookie and similar technology functions are necessary and vital to ensuring that LiQD Trading works properly for visitors and members, such as maintaining the security, safety, and integrity of the Site, authentication and logging into LiQD Trading (including remembering permissions and consents you have granted), and ensuring the ability to securely complete transactions.

Account and User Preferences

Some technologies are used to remember your account and preferences over time, such as remembering your account or keeping yourself logged in when returning to LiQD Trading, maintaining your choices on LiQD Trading features and how you want LiQD Trading to appear, including keeping track of your preferred language and country, and customizing content based on on how you use LiQD Trading.

Social Networks

Some technologies help you to interact with social networks you are signed into while using the Services, such as sharing content with the social network, logging in with the social network, and other features you employ with the social network, or that are allowed in the social network’s privacy policy. These may be set and controlled by the social networks, and your preferences with those social networks.

Social networks may also work with LiQD Trading or with you for analytics or for marketing purposes, as discussed below. You may be able to manage your privacy preferences for these social networks and their tools and widgets via your account with the social network.

Performance and Analytics

Some technologies help provide performance data on how the Services are functioning in order to improve LiQD Trading and the Services, including, for example, data on site and app functionality and speed to help us optimize LiQD Trading, how the Services are used to help us improve your experience on LiQD Trading, and detecting and gathering reporting on bugs to help make LiQD Trading work better.

The Site and App also employ Google Analytics to help understand how LiQD Trading is used by its community. For some of the advertising features listed below, like retargeting, data from Google Analytics may be combined with LiQD Trading’s first-party data and third-party cookies (like Google’s advertising cookies). To see how to opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features, see the Opt-Out section at the bottom of this policy.

You can find more information on how Google Analytics works in this Google guide.

Marketing Services

LiQD Trading partners with third-party service providers that may use various Cookie Technologies to permit us and them to learn about what ads you see and click when you visit LiQD Trading, the Apps, and affiliated sites or to show you ads on and off LiQD Trading. These may include things such as:

Some third-party service providers may provide information like demographics, cross-device information, or interest categories from a combination of sources that, while not identifying you personally, permit us to provide you with more relevant and useful advertising. In some cases, this information may have non-marketing performance analytics uses as well.

These technologies allow a partner to recognize your computer or mobile device each time you visit LiQD Trading or other websites and mobile applications based on data like a cookie, your IP address, or device ID, but do not allow access to other personal information from LiQD Trading. However, these technologies may allow us or a third party to recognize you, either from a single device or across devices, over time. These third parties are required to follow applicable laws, self-regulatory programs, and LiQD Trading’s data protection rules where applicable. However, LiQD Trading does not have control over these third parties, who each have their own privacy policies and privacy practices. LiQD Trading adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance's Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising.

Services in the Apps (SDKs)

The Apps may include third-party application software development kits (“SDKs”) that provide mobile performance and analytics data, bug reporting features, and APIs to third parties that help provide the Services, for social media functionality, and for marketing and advertising.

Consent, Contract, and Legitimate Interests in Processing

Certain Cookie Technologies are employed to make the Site function for its intended purpose, and are provided based on contractual necessity based on your agreement with LiQD Trading to perform the services you have requested. These include the functions strictly necessary to the service noted above.

By choosing to use our Services after having been notified of our use of Cookie Technologies in the ways described in this Policy, and, in applicable jurisdictions, through notice and unambiguous acknowledgement of your consent, you agree to such use.

Opt-in and Opt-out on Browsers

In addition, when you use LiQD Trading via a browser, you can change your web browser's settings to reflect your cookie preferences for cookies directly from the site you are on or for third-party cookies. Each browser is a little different, but usually these settings are under the "options" or "preferences" menu. The links below provide information about cookie settings for the browsers supported by LiQD Trading:

Opt-out of Third-Party Networks

If you do not wish to have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based advertisements, you may decline to receive interest based ads through TrustE/TrustArc’s preferences manager (or if you are located in the European Union click here). Please note this does not stop you from being served advertisements. You will continue to receive generic advertisements. Please note that if you reject or block all cookies in your browser settings, you will not be able to take advantage of LiQD Trading's Services as some cookies are necessary for the Site to function properly.

You can learn more about managing your preferences for ads online, particularly for many third-party advertising networks, through resources made available by the Digital Advertising Alliance at https://www.aboutads.info or the Network Advertising Initiative at https://optout.networkadvertising.org.

Google Analytics Opt-out

For Google Analytics Advertising Features, you can opt-out through Google Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means (for example, the NAI's consumer opt-out listed above). Google also provides a Google Analytics opt-out plug-in for the web.

Third-Party Tools

Various third parties provide browser plug-ins and apps that can help provide you information on, and limit or block, third-party cookies, web beacons, and some Javascript-based technologies. LiQD Trading cannot vouch for the efficacy of a particular third-party product, but popular products that provide these privacy enhancements include Ghostery and AdBlock Plus.

Mobile Opt-out

If you access LiQD Trading through the Apps, you may also control interest-based advertising on an iOS or Android device by selecting the “Limit Ad Tracking” option in the privacy section of the Settings App on iOS or via advertising preferences on Android-based devices (usually in the Google Settings app). This will not prevent you from seeing advertisements, but will limit the use of device advertising identifiers to personalize ads based on your interests.
