A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same Mission Critical Studios site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you will not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Mission Critical Studios Web site or other Web sites you visit.
Links to Mission Critical Studios Partners and Other Sites
Mission Critical Studios sites contain links to other web sites. You should carefully examine the privacy statements of sites linking to or from Mission Critical Studios before providing any personal information to those sites. Personal information that you choose to provide to other web sites will be subject to the privacy policies of that specific web site. Mission Critical Studios is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Mission Critical Studios family of Web sites.
Use of Third Party Ad Networks
The majority of the online banner advertisements you see on the Mission Critical Studios Web sites are displayed by Mission Critical Studios. In addition, Mission Critical Studios also allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to display advertisements on Mission Critical Studios Web sites. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer. Doing this allows the ad network to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. Mission Critical Studios does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.
Mission Critical Studios may maintain relationships with a number of the third-party ad networks. Those ad networks that use persistent cookies may offer you a way to opt out of ad targeting.
