In order to ensure that you receive the most relevant information and the best service when you visit our website (‘Site’), information and data will be collected through the use of cookies. It helps us (and other authorized third parties) to provide you with a personalized experience when you visit our Site, and it also allows us to improve our service and make sure that you will easily find what you want. We want you to understand our use of these technologies, so this Cookie Policy explains the types of technologies we use, what they do and your choices regarding their use.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that are sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your device so that the website can recognize your computer. There are two types of cookies, permanent and temporary or “session” cookies. Permanent cookies are stored as a file on your computer or mobile device for a long period. Session cookies are temporarily placed on your computer when you visit our Site, but disappear when you shut down the page which means they are not stored permanently on your device. Most companies use cookies on their websites to improve usability and cookies cannot harm your files or increase the risk of viruses on your computer.

We and our service providers may use the following categories of cookies:

Essential cookies:These cookies are strictly necessary for us to provide our site. For example, we may use these cookies to authenticate and identify our members when they use our Site so we can provide our services. Without these cookies we would not be able to recognise you and you would not be able to access our services. They also help us to enforce our Terms and Conditions and maintain the security of our services.

Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are not strictly necessary, but allow us to personalise your online experience with Viaplay. For example, they allow us to remember your preferences and mean that you do not need to re-enter information you have already provided e.g. when signing-up to our services. We also use these cookies to collect information (e.g. popular pages, viewing patterns, click-throughs) about our visitors' usage of our services so that we can improve our Site and services and conduct market research. If you choose to delete these cookies you will have limited functionality of our services.

Advertising cookies: These cookies use information about your usage of our Site and other websites, e.g. the pages you visit or your response to ads, to deliver ads that are more tailored to you, both on and off our Site. These types of ads are called “Interest-Based Advertising.” Many of these types of cookies belong to our service providers.
