Essential cookies

Some cookies are essential to allow the website to work properly.

Pixel Gecko uses a cookie called _pixelgecko.com_session which helps us know who you are when you play our game.

Occasionally, we’ll run tests on our website to see how our visitors respond to different design elements. When we do, we use the cookie called _pixelgecko.com_session to keep track of which version we show which visitors. This is normally something along the lines of “buttoncolor=red” or “buttoncolor=blue”.

Functional cookies

Functional cookies allow a website to provide additional services by remembering your preferences and settings. Pixel Gecko use a cookie called _pixelgecko.com_cookie_notice to keep track of whether you have chosen to hide the Cookie Notice at the foot of the screen.

Functional cookies may also be set by third parties if you view their content within our website. For example, if we embed a YouTube video in one of our pages then you will receive a Cookie from YouTube to help ensure a smooth video playback experience. Pixel Gecko have no control over the content of these cookies.

Performance cookies

Performance cookies allow us to keep track of our website analytics. It is greatly beneficial for us to know how many visitors we get, what the most popular pages are, which prizes get the most views and what time of day has the least number of visitors (so we know the best time to do maintenance).

Pixel Gecko uses a third party service to track our analytics. Examples of the cookies they set are _unta, _untb, _umtc and _umtz.

Advertising cookies

The Pixel Gecko website has links to social networking sites on various pages which may place cookies on your computer. As these sites are not ours, we have no control over how they will use and/or store your data. You should read the individual social networking site’s privacy policies to find out what happens to your data and how it is used.

Third party advertisers will often place cookies to help make advertisements and offers more interesting to you. Pixel Gecko has no direct third party advertising on its website.

Pixel Gecko doesn’t send any personally identifiable information about you to Google. We do, however, use Google’s Demographics and Interests feature, which tells us a little more about the sort of people who visit our site.

If you’d rather not have any of your data be used by Google Analytics, you can opt out by using Google’s own Opt-out Browser Add-on.
