Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, Inc., and certain of our service providers of our digital services, use digital tracking technologies (including cookies, Flash cookies, pixels, tags, application program interfaces and software development kits). For ease of reference, we refer to all of these technologies in this policy as cookies to personalise content and advertising and to analyse how you use our digital services including for purposes such as:
- improving the functionality of our digital services (e.g. login and shopping cart functionality),
- letting you navigate between digital services efficiently,
- remembering your preferences, and improving the user experience, and
- to analyse how our users use the digital services, interact with our content and view our advertising.
We commence collection of information when you visit or use our digital services using one or more devices and regardless of whether you have logged in or registered.
You can also disable certain cookies, including cookies set by third parties on our digital services, by visiting our Preference Centre. Other options for disabling certain cookies are set out in Section 5 below. Please note that this does not apply to strictly necessary cookies as described in Section 2 below.
2. Different categories of cookies we use
Strictly necessary cookies:
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the digital services you have asked for, such as accessing secure areas of the digital services.
We use this type of cookies to handle user registration and login. Without these cookies, the digital services you have asked for cannot be provided. These cookies could be first-party cookies or third party cookies, and can be either permanent or temporary. In short, without these cookies our digital services would not work properly.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a digital service, for instance which digital service visitors go to most often and for how long.
We use these cookies to:
- provide statistics on how the digital services are used
- measure the delivery of our advertising campaigns (we do not use information gathered using this type of cookies to target advertisements to you)
These cookies could be permanent or temporary, first-party cookies or third party cookies. In short, these cookies collect information on the digital services visited and the advertisements viewed.
These cookies allow the digital services to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the country you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies may also be used to provide digital services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog.
We use these cookies to:
- remember whether a digital service has already been provided to you
- enhance the overall experience across the digital services by remembering your preferences.
These cookies could be permanent or temporary, first-party cookies or third party cookies. In short, these cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience.
Advertising cookies (or targeting cookies) collect information about the browsing habits associated with your device across websites that you visit and are used to make advertising more relevant to you and your interests.
Advertising cookies may be third parties cookies placed by service providers such as advertisers and their agents, and can be permanent or temporary cookies. In short, they are related to advertising services provided by service providers on our digital services.
3. Use of web pixels in marketing emails
Our marketing related emails and newsletters may contain a campaign-unique “web pixel” (a type of cookie) to tell us how you interact with our communications. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to you and to query if you should to continue receiving emails if you do not open them. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email.
Where you subscribe to a digital service, the accompanying emails similarly include a pixel. We track your interaction with these emails and our digital services to validate attendance for accreditation purposes, to help determine which information is of interest to you and to customise the advertisements you see on our digital services. In both cases, this information may be connected to your personal identity.
If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should opt-out of email marketing altogether, configure your email to not load remote images by default or view your emails in plaintext format.
4. Social media
We have a presence on third party platforms such as FaceBook, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn and Twitter. If you click on any of the social media icons on our digital services (where applicable) you will be taken to our digital services on the relevant third party platform. When you do so, the relevant third party platform may start tracking your behaviour using cookies and other tracking technology for their own purposes (for example to better understand your interests so that they can present relevant content or advertisements to you) and in order to provide us with statistical information, which we use to better understand how you and our other users interact with our social medial presence.
All these third party platforms provide you with some control over their use of non-essential tracking technology and you can find details of how to exercise this control at:
