Privacy and cookie policy for our content recommendation and distribution service

Last updated: November 5, 2014

This privacy policy applies to information collected through the Strossle content recommendation and distribution service, i.e. our widgets, video players and sponsored messages installed at our publishing partners’ web pages, (collectively, the “Service”). The Service is offered by Strossle International Holding AB and its subsidiaries (collectively, “Strossle,” or “we”, “us”, “our”).

We take your privacy very seriously and are committed to being transparent with how we use your information. Our privacy policy explains:

  • Why we collect information
  • How we collect information
  • What type of information we collect
  • How we use that information

Your options to restrict Strossle from accessing information

The Service contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of third party websites.

Why we collect information

We collect information to provide better content recommendation services to our users and better targeting for our advertisers.

How we collect information

We collect information on all pages where the Service is installed. We track what articles are read and what content items in our widgets are clicked.

We use cookies to identify a user from one page load to another only to optimize what content to recommend on the following pages.

We never collect information that can be used to identify a specific individual.

What type of information we collect

We may collect information about what content categories you access when visiting websites where our Service is installed. The system is based on a number of content categories; for example Sports or Travel. The only information that is saved in an anonymous cookie is a counter showing the amount of times a certain category of a website has been visited and the time of the latest update of the counter.

No categories relating to information which Strossle considers sensitive have been or will be created, such as categories relating to political opinions, religious beliefs, physical or mental health conditions or sexual life. Further, Strossle is very sensitive to the issue of children’s privacy and marketing directed to children. No categories are intended for the profiling of children.
