Other technologies, including data we store on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device, and other software, are used for similar purposes.

Cookies help us provide, protect and improve the HSV Database Products, such as by personalising content, tailoring and measuring ads, and providing a safer experience. While the cookies that we use may change from time to time as we improve and update the HSV Database Products, we use them for the following purposes:
Security, site and product integrity
Advertising, recommendations, insights and measurement
For example: Cookies allow us to help deliver ads to people who have previously visited a business’s website, purchased its products or used its apps and to recommend products and services based on that activity.
Site features and services
For example: Cookies help us store preferences, know when you’ve seen or interacted with HSV Database Products’ content and provide you with customised content and experiences. For instance, cookies allow us to make suggestions to you and others.
Analytics and research
For example: Cookies can help us understand how people use the HSV Database service, analyse which parts of the HSV Database Products people find most useful and engaging, and identify features that could be improved.
You can opt out of seeing online interest-based ads from HSV Database and other participating companies through the Digital Advertising Alliance in the US, the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada in Canada or the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance in Europe or through your mobile device settings. Please note that ad blockers and tools that restrict our cookie use may interfere with these controls.
