Cookie Use

MyTattooist uses cookies and other similar technologies, such as pixels or local storage, to help provide you with a better, faster, and safer experience. Here are some of the ways that the MyTattooist services—including our various websites, SMS, APIs, email notifications, applications, buttons, widgets, and ads—use these technologies: to log you into MyTattooist, save your preferences, personalize the content you see, protect against spam and abuse, and show you more relevant ads.

Below we explain how MyTattooist, our partners, and other third parties use these technologies, your privacy settings and the other options you have.

What are cookies, pixels, and local storage?

Cookies are small files that websites place on your computer as you browse the web. Like many websites, MyTattooist uses cookies to discover how people are using our services and to make them work better.

A pixel is a small amount of code on a web page or in an email notification. As many services do, we use pixels to learn whether you’ve interacted with certain web or email content. This helps us measure and improve our services and personalize your experience on MyTattooist.

Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. We use local storage to customize what we show you based on your past interactions with MyTattooist.

Why does MyTattooist use these technologies?

MyTattooist uses these technologies to deliver, measure, and improve our services in various ways. These uses generally fall into one of the following categories:

  • Authentication and security:

    • To log you into MyTattooist

    • To protect your security

    • To help us detect and fight spam, abuse, and other activities that violate the MyTattooist Terms

For example, these technologies help authenticate your access to MyTattooist and prevent unauthorized parties from accessing your account. They also let us show you appropriate content through our services.

  • Preferences:

    • To remember information about your browser and your preferences

For example, cookies help us remember your preferred language or country that you are in. We can then provide you with MyTattooist content in your preferred language without having to ask you each time you visit MyTattooist. We can also customize content based on your country, such as showing you what topics are trending near you, or to withhold certain content based on applicable local laws. Learn more about Trends and country withheld content.

  • Analytics and research:

    • To help us improve and understand how people use our services, including MyTattooist buttons and widgets, and MyTattooist Ads

For example, cookies help us test different versions of our services to see which particular features or content users prefer. We might also optimize and improve your experience on MyTattooist by using cookies to see how you interact with our services, such as when and how often you use them and what links you click on. We may use Google Analytics to assist us with this. Learn more about the cookies you may encounter through our use of Google Analytics. We might also use cookies to count the number of users that have seen a particular embedded Tweet or timeline. Learn more about the analytics cookies used by MyTattooist widgets.

  • Personalized content:

    • To customize our services with more relevant content, like tailored trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to follow

For example, local storage tells us which parts of your MyTattooist timeline you have viewed already so that we can show you the appropriate new content. Cookies can help us make smarter and more relevant suggestions about who you might enjoy following based on your visits to websites that have integrated MyTattooist buttons or widgets.Learn more about tailored suggestions and your privacy controls, which include your MyTattooist account settings and Do Not Track browser setting.

  • Advertising:

    • To help us deliver ads, measure their performance, and make them more relevant to you based on criteria like your activity on MyTattooist and visits to our ad partners' websites

For example, MyTattooist uses cookies and pixels to tailor ads and measure their performance. Using these technologies, we can show you ads and evaluate their effectiveness based on your visits to our ad partners' websites. This helps advertisers provide high-quality ads and content that might be more interesting to you. Learn more about MyTattooist’s tailored ads and your privacy controls, which include your MyTattooist account settingsDo Not Track browser setting, and the opt-out choices of MyTattooist's ad partners, including those at

Our third-party advertising providers, including Google Analytics for Display Advertisers, also use these technologies for marketing on MyTattooist’s behalf, including the delivery of interest-based ads and measurement of their performance. If you do not want our advertising providers to use your visits to MyTattooist websites to show you personalized ads on our behalf, you can opt out using your Do Not Track browser setting. You can also opt out of Google Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on, and out of interest-based Google ads using Google’s Ads Settings.

Where are these technologies used?

MyTattooist uses these technologies on our own websites and services and on other websites that have integrated our services. This includes our advertising and platform partners’ websites and sites that use MyTattooist buttons or widgets, like our follow buttons. Third parties may also use these technologies, for example, when you interact with their content from within our services, like when you click a link or stream media on MyTattooist from a third-party service, and to help with the delivery of ads shown on and off of MyTattooist.
