Cookies can also remember your preferences, improve the user experience as well as tailor the adverts you see to those most relevant to you.

Other cookies / unforeseen cookies
Considering how Internet and websites operate, we won't always be able to control the cookies that are stored by third parties through our website. This applies especially in cases in which the web page contains embedded elements, texts, documents, pictures or short videos that are stored somewhere else, but are displayed in or through our website.
Therefore, if in our website a cookie not attributable to one of the third-party services listed before was detected, please inform us. Also consider the possibility to contact those third parties directly to ask questions about what type of cookies they store, their purpose, their expiration dates and how they ensure the users' privacy.
How to control cookies
There are a few ways you can choose how cookies are used on QuizzClub:
In your cookies preferences you can decide whether we use info from our partners and other services to customize QuizzClub for you.
Your browser probably gives you cookie choices. For example, most browsers let you block “third party cookies,” which are cookies from sites other than the one you’re visiting. Those options vary from browser to browser, so check your browser settings for more info.
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish - for details, see AllAboutCookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed.
Please note that if you chose to disable some cookies that we use, you may experience reduced functionality or be prevented from using parts of this website.
You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies, although we would prefer that you didn't as ultimately adverts help keep much of the internet free. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won't see adverts, just simply that they won't be tailored to you any longer.
