In operating the Services, we along with our third party partners may use tracking technologies such as cookies, E-Tags, JavaScript and Local Storage such as HTML5. Our third party partners also use Local Shared Objects (LOSs) such as Flash.

A cookie is a small piece of text that is sent to a browser. The browser provides this piece of text to the originating server when the visitor returns. YooRewards uses cookies to help direct users to the appropriate page based on their interests. YooRewards does not store any personal data in cookies.
