Cookie policy

This Cookie Policy applies to any 5miles product or service (“Services”) that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference. By continuing to visit or use our Services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes described in this policy.

What are cookies

5miles uses cookies and similar technologies (“cookies”) to understand how you use our site and to improve your experience.

What technologies we use

Cookies

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables features and functionality. Any browser visiting our Services may receive cookies from us or cookies from third parties such as our customers, partners or service providers. We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie may help us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to our Services or interact with our Services without signing in again. A persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by 5miles when you return to one of our Services or a partner site that uses our Services. Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

Pixels

A pixel is a tiny image that may be found within web pages and emails, requiring a call (which provides device and visit information) to our servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, such as whether you interacted with ads or posts. Pixels can also enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser.

Local storage

Local storage enables a website or application to store information locally on your device(s). Local storage may be used to improve your experience, for example, by enabling features, remembering your preferences and speeding up site functionality.

Why do we use cookies

5miles describes the purposes for which we use these technologies:

Authentication

We use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our Services. If you’re signed into 5miles, these technologies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience in line with your settings. For example, cookies enable Services to identify you and verify your account.

Security

We use cookies and similar technologies to make your interactions with our Services faster and more secure. For example, we use cookies to enable and support our security features, keep your account safe and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our Terms and Conditions.

Preferences, features and services_

We use cookies and similar technologies to enable the functionality of our Services, such as helping you to fill out forms on our Services more easily and providing you with features, insights and customized content in conjunction with our plugins. We also use these technologies to remember information about your browser and your preferences. For example, cookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. We may also use local storage to speed up site functionality.

Customized content

We use cookies and similar technologies to customize your experience on our Services. For example, we may use cookies to remember previous searches so that when you return to our Services, we can offer additional information that relates to your previous search.

Advertising

We use cookies and similar technologies help us show relevant advertising to you more effectively, both on and off our Services and to measure the performance of such ads. We use these technologies to learn whether content has been shown to you or whether someone who was presented with an ad later came back and took an action (for example, made a purchase) on another site. Similarly, our partners or service providers may use these technologies to determine whether we’ve shown an ad or a post and how it performed or provide us with information about how you interact with ads. We may also work with our customers and partners to show you an ad on or off 5miles, such as after you’ve visited a customer’s or partner’s site or application. These technologies help us to provide aggregated information to our customers and partners.

Performance, analytics and research

We use cookies and similar technologies help us learn more about how well our Services and plugins perform in different locations. We or our service providers use these technologies to understand, improve, and research products, features and services, including as you navigate through our sites or when you access 5miles from other sites, applications or devices. We also use these technologies to provide aggregated information to our customers and partners as part of our Services.
