In the course of advertisements being served to you, a unique third-party cookie or other advertising technology may be placed on your browser. This advertising technology uses information derived from your visits to the Site to target advertising within the Site. This information can be used for many purposes, for example, to ensure that you do not see the same advertisements repeatedly. We may also use this information to help select and display targeted advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you (sometimes called Online behavioral advertising or OBA). We may also use web beacons, provided by third-party advertising companies, to help manage and optimize our Online advertising. Web beacons enable us to recognize a browser’s cookie when a browser visits the Site, to learn which banner ads bring users to our Site and to deliver more relevant advertising.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. They are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work or to work more efficiently and to report analytical information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, VividFizz) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first and third party cookies and we use them for several reasons. Some cookies are required for the technical functioning of the website, and those are referred to as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Properties. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on where you visit):
ESSENTIAL WEBSITE COOKIES
These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Websites and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.
Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the vividfizz.com to you, you cannot refuse them. You can block or delete them by changing your browser settings if you choose to do so.
Performance and functionality cookies
These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of vividfizz.com but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality, like videos and interactions, may become unavailable.
Analytics and customization cookies
These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how vividfizz.com is being used or how effective marketing campaigns are.
Social networking cookies
These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on vividfizz.com through third-party social networking websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes too.
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
HOW CAN I CONTROL COOKIES?
In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
