  • Advertising cookies Subject to your cookie settings, Newegg and various third party ad partners may use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about the browsing habits associated with your device to further personalise your experience such as through the use of targeted advertisements and special offers that are more relevant to you and your interests.

We allow some third parties, including Facebook to set cookies both when you visit our Site and when you use certain features on our Site (such as clicking “Like”, “Share” and “tweet” buttons).

These third parties link the information that they collect through the use of these cookies with the information that they hold about you through your use of their service in order to present you with targeted advertising via their platforms. For example, where you have provided permission, we allow Facebook to place a cookie on your device. When you return to Facebook, Facebook can identify you as a user of the Newegg Site and can therefore provide you with advertising messages from us.

In other situations, third parties use cookies so that they can retarget Newegg’s products to you when you visit other websites or mobile applications, or to predict what advertisements about third party products are likely to be of interest to you based on your browsing activities.

Please note that if you opt out of advertising cookies, you will still be presented with advertisements online. These advertisements will not be tailored to you.

The Site currently uses the following advertising cookies. You may disable these by following the instructions in the table below or where an opt-out mechanism is not available, by reference to section 7 below.

Other tracking technologies

In conjunction with cookies, we may utilise other tracking technologies to understand how you access and use our Site and services. These tracking technologies may include:

    • Log files and IP address

      We use device information and IP addresses (and ask for confirmation if this is correct) to analyse trends, administer the Site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on the internet. We may store the information in log files (i.e. files which record events), or other types of files, which may be combined with other information that we have collected about you.

    • Web beacons and pixels

      The Site and our emails and advertisements may contain web beacons. A web beacon is a small graphic image, such as a pixel or GIF, which is placed on a web page, email, or advertisement and is used to provide information on when and how you access and use the Site, and services and emails. We may use this information for various purposes, including to develop statistical information and to determine features that most interest you for the purpose of providing more personalised content. With respect to emails, we may use this information to determine which of our emails are more interesting to you and to whether you wish to continue receiving such emails if you do not open them. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML, and you should not click links that we send you. You can opt-out of receiving marketing emails by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link located at the bottom of all Newegg marketing emails or by sending an email to wecare@service.newegg.com with a request to be removed, or by contacting us as per section 1 above. If you are a registered user of the Site, you can also opt-out of receiving marketing emails by updating  your email preferences under the “Email Notifications” section of My Account. Please allow up to thirty (30) days for your request to be processed. Please note that even if you opt-out of receiving marketing emails, you may still receive communications from us that are important and/or related to your interactions with us, or otherwise as required by law.

    • Apps – SDKs and Ad-IDs

      We may link data stored in cookies or collected by similar tracking technologies to other personal data we collect about you as you use the Site.

Do Not Track Signals” or similar mechanisms

Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that, when turned on, signals to websites the user visits that the user does not want to be tracked. At this time, the Site does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals or similar mechanisms.

      • In some countries, by using the Site, you consent to the use of cookies and other similar tracking technologies in accordance with this cookies policy.
      • In other countries, we are required to collect your consent for many of the cookies and tracking technologies we use. Where this is the case, you will have seen a pop- up to this effect on your first visit to the Site.
      • Although the pop-up may not usually appear on subsequent visits, you may withdraw your consent at any time by following the instructions below.

Managing and disabling cookies

For information on controlling your mobile choices in respect of advertising tracking you can visit www.networkadvertising.org/mobile-choices. Also in some regions you can block mobile ads through third party ad blockers. For example, you can use the DAA mobile app at https://youradchoices.com/appchoices.
