What are cookies used for?

With the help of cookies and other technologies, websites or services can determine whether your computer or device has visited them before. These technologies can then be used to provide or deliver products, services and advertisements, to give us information about how the website or service is used, to help you navigate between pages efficiently, to provide assistance in saving your preferences and to generally improve your experience when using our services. Cookies can also help ensure that the marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.

Why does Instagram use cookies and similar technologies?

We use cookies, pixels, local storage and similar technologies to show you relevant content, improve your experience and protect Instagram and our users. We may use these technologies to provide the service, to offer you an easy-to-use service that allows you to move around the service and use its features (such as accessing secure areas), and to store information so that Instagram responds faster. We can also use these technologies to collect information about how you use the service, such as which pages you visit the most and whether you receive error messages from certain pages. We can also use these technologies so that we can remember the choices you made (such as your username, your language or the region you are in) and adapt the service to provide you with improved features and content. These cookies can also help us remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other elements of pages that you can customize. Instagram or our advertising partners can use these technologies to deliver advertising that is relevant to your interests. These technologies can remember that your device has visited a website or service. They may also be able to track your device browsing on websites or services other than Instagram. This information can be shared with other organizations outside of Instagram, such as B. advertisers and / or advertising networks, to serve the advertisement and to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. * We can use these technologies to learn about products and services and to improve and research them.
