Preference and Analytics Cookies
Preference cookies allow us to “remember” your preferences when you access our Platform and to customize your experience. Analytics cookies help us understand how our users interact with our Platform, allowing us to improve your experience and to enhance Teachable Services. We do this by, among other actions, measuring how well our services are functioning and tracking how you navigate through our Platform. We also rely on third-party cookies, like Google Analytics, to collect and analyze information.
Advertising cookies help us to develop targeted advertising and measure the performance of such ads. We partner with third-party advertisers to allow us and them to learn about which ads we’ve shown you and how you interacted with them on and off our Platform.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually set your browser to remove or reject cookies by following the instructions in your browser settings. Some analytics providers we partner with, like Google Analytics, may also provide you with additional opt-out mechanisms.
