Use of Cookies

Thai Enquirer uses cookies and other similar anonymous tracking technologies for a number of reasons.

Thai Enquirer uses anonymous cookies for statistical purposes to track how many unique consumers we have and how often they visit the Thai Enquirer website. Thai Enquirer collects data about which of our pages are most frequently visited and by which types of visitors and consumers from which countries.

Thai Enquirer uses registration cookies to track if registered consumers are logged in. This allows you to access services that require registration such as purchasing analyses or commenting on articles. You must enable Thai Enquirer to place cookies on your computer to register and use services requiring registration.

Further information is available below concerning Online Behavioural Advertising.

About Thai Enquirer Advertising

Online Behavioural Advertising (OBA) allows us to deliver targeted advertising to visitors to the Thai Enquirer website. OBA works by showing you advertisements that are based on the type of content you have been reading and delivering advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you.

As you browse Thai Enquirer, one of the cookies placed on your computer will be an advertising cookie so we can better understand what sort of pages you are interested in.

The information collected about your computer enables us to group you with other computers who have shown similar interests. We can then display advertising to you that is based on these interests. For instance, if you have been reading a lot of Food and Drink articles we may decide to show you more advertisements based on food and drink.

It is important to remember that none of the OBA techniques we employ requires us to collect or use personally identifiable information like your name, email address, postal address or telephone number.

Behavioral retargeting is another form of OBA that enables us and some of our advertising partners to show you ads based on your online reading away from the Thai Enquirer website. For example, if you have visited the website of an online clothing shop you may start seeing ads from that same shopping site displaying special offers or showing you the products that you were browsing. This allows companies to advertise to visitors who are interested in their content after they leave their website.

Thai Enquirer may also want to share behavioral data with other websites. This may mean that when you are on other websites you are served advertising based on your behavior on Thai Enquirer, and on Thai Enquirer you may be served advertising based on your behavior on other sites. If you want to opt-out of receiving online behavioral advertising this does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising when you are using this website. It just means that the advertising you see will not be customised or relevant to you.

Other Advertising

Thai Enquirer contains contextual affiliate links from which we may earn revenue. Our articles are never influenced by advertisers or affiliates, nor are they written for the purpose of promoting a product, except when clearly branded as a ‘sponsored feature’ or ‘advertisement feature’ or ‘sponsor’s content’.

Legal Information

Please note that Thai Enquirer reserves the right to access and disclose personal data to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests, to operate our systems properly and to protect both ourselves and our visitors and consumers.
