COOKIE POLICY

We use a lot of cookies on this site. Online publishing is primarily supported by advertising and so is uBux. Cookies power the advertising and the advertising pays for the Site.

Cookies are small data files that websites store in your hard drive. They create a unique id that is associated with your browser. We use first-party cookies for analytics, which tell us about user activity on our site. We use third-party cookies to collect information about your habits across multiple sites and to provide advertising that is targeted to your interests. Our third-party advertising partners also use third-party cookies. More information about each is provided below.

Analytics

1. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to help us understand how you engage with our site so that we can improve it. Google Analytics reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. You may install a Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Button here. The Google Analytics Privacy Policy can be read here.

2. Affiliate Programs

Not technically an analytics cookie, but you should know that we present links in a format that enables us to track when links are followed. Specifically, when you make a purchase on Amazon.com, after clicking one of their links on our site, we collect a small portion of the sale from them as part of their affiliate programs. You are not identifiable to us personally and we only see aggregated, anonymized statistics on what was purchased. UBux is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

Advertising

1. Google Ad Products

We use Google Ads products like remarketing, similar audiences and interest categories on our site. Google uses the DoubleClick cookie to serve ads based upon your visits to this website. They also present you with retargeting advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction on our website and other sites. You can adjust Google's use of cookies by visiting Google's Ads Settings. You may permanently opt-out of the Google DoubleClick cookie here.

2. “Other”

We have vendors who we partner with directly to provide advertisements on our Site.  You can opt out of many third-party vendor's use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page and/or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.
