We use both first-party and third-party cookies on our website as described below.
First party cookies are served directly by us to your computer or device. MMT cookies are used to help us render basic site functionality and personalize your experience.
Third-party cookies are served by a third party on our behalf. Third-party cookies are used to understand patterns of user activity, devices used and traffic sources on our site.
Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some of the cookies we use are “session cookies,” meaning they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are “permanent cookies,” meaning they survive even after your browser is closed. They can be used by sites to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.
When you visit FandomLive, our web server sends a cookie to your device, which allows us to recognize your device (but not the specific person using it). By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other account information when, for example, you log in to our Services, we know that the cookie information relates to your user account. Similarly, pixel tags on FandomLive and in email communications help us identify how your device is being used to interact with FandomLive content. Some of the tags and cookies used by our Services are served by us, and some are served by trusted partners who are delivering services on our behalf.

These cookies give us the insight to help us understand and improve features and content on our site. In particular, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics tool, to help us understand how many users engage with our site. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track user interactions, as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how users use our site. This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve our site. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual visitors.

These cookies make interacting with social media platforms smooth and easy and are used to place our online advertisements on the social media platform and measure the effectiveness of that advertising. These features (such as Facebook’s Like button) are also used by our business partners to measure the success of their applications. If you are logged in to your account with the third party, the third party may be able to link information or actions about your interactions with MMT.
