Cookie policy

This cookie policy explains how we use cookies and other similar technologies when you use our service, what tracking technologies are and why we use them. It also explains how you can control their use.

If you have any questions you can contact us at support@madmuscles.com.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or other electronic device) when you visit our website to store a range of information, for example, your language preference, or browser and device you are using to view the website. Those cookies are set by us and called first-party cookies. We also use third party cookies, which are cookies from a domain different from the domain of our website, for our advertising and marketing efforts.

Session cookies expire each time you close your browser and do not remain on your device afterwards. These cookies allow our website to link your actions during a particular browser session.

Persistent cookies will remain on your device for a period of time, and will expire on a set expiration date, or when you delete them manually from your cache. These cookies are stored on your device in between browser sessions and allow your preferences and actions across our website to be remembered.

Similar technologies

In addition to cookies, there are other similar technologies that may be used on the web or in mobile ecosystems.

  • Web beacon is a small, transparent image (also known as “pixel tag”, “web bug”, “GIF”) that contains a unique identifier. It is embedded into a website or an email. When your browser reads the code of the website it communicates with our server in order to display the image and, through this process, we are able to acquire information such as technical specifications of your device, operating systems and settings being used. It can also track your activities during a session. Also, it enables us to recognize when each email was opened, from what IP address and from what device. We use this information to improve our email communication.
  • Software development kits (SDK) are third-party software development kits that may be installed in our mobile applications. SDKs help us understand how you interact with our mobile applications and collect certain information about the device and network you use to access the application.
  • Local shared objects, commonly called “Flash cookies”, are pieces of data that websites which use Adobe Flash may store on a user's computer to facilitate the Flash functionality. We may use Adobe Flash to display graphics, interactive animations and other enhanced functionality. Local shared objects can track similar parameters to cookies but they can also provide information on your use of the specific feature that the cookie is enabling. For example, if it facilitates the display of a video then we can receive details of how much of the video was watched and when viewing stopped. Flash cookie management tools can be accessed directly via www.adobe.com.
  • HTML5 local storage. HTML 5 is the fifth version of the HTML language and contains functionality that allows information to be stored locally within the browser’s data files. HTML5 local storage operates in a similar way to cookies but differs in that it can hold greater amounts of information and does not rely on an exchange of data with the website’s server.
  • Fingerprinting is a technique that involves combining a set of information elements in order to uniquely identify a particular device. These information elements include, for example: data from configuration of the device, CSS information, JavaScript objects, installed fonts, installed plugins with the browser, use of any APIs, HTTP header information, clock information.
  • Device Identifiers are identifiers comprised of numbers and letters, which are unique to each specific device. These include Apple’s ID for Advertisers (IDFA) and Google’s Android Advertising ID (AAID). They are stored on the device and are used to recognize you and your devices across different apps and devices for marketing and advertising purposes. You can reset your device identifier or opt out of personalized advertising in the settings of your device.
  • Social widgets are buttons or icons provided by third-party social media providers that allow you to interact with those social media services when you view a web page or a mobile app screen. These social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third party that provided the widget, and are controlled by the third parties.
