strictly necessary/essential cookies - These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for cannot be provided. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor.
functionality cookies - These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
behaviourally targeted advertising cookies - These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.

“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference you can set in your browser if you do not want online services — specifically ad networks — to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. Crowdin does not currently respond differently to an individual browser’s Do Not Track setting. If you would like to set your browser to signal that you would not like to be tracked, please check your browser’s documentation for how to enable that signal. There are also good applications that block online tracking, such as Privacy Badger.
We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time and we do not host third-party advertising on Crowdin that might track your activity on our site. We do have agreements with certain vendors, such as analytics providers, who help us track visitors’ movements on certain pages on our site. Only our vendors, who are collecting data on our behalf, may collect data on our pages, and we have signed data protection agreements with every vendor who collects this data on our behalf. We use the data we receive from these vendors to better understand our visitors’ interests, to understand our website’s performance, and to improve our content. Any analytics vendor will be listed in our Subprocessor List above.
We use Google Analytics as a third party analytics service, but we don’t use it for advertising purposes. We use Google Analytics to collect information about how our website performs and how our users, in general, navigate through and use Crowdin. This helps us evaluate our users’ use of Crowdin; compile statistical reports on activity; and improve our content and website performance. Google provides further information about its own privacy practices and offers a browser add-on to opt out of Google Analytics tracking.
