    providing clarity regarding the technologies we employ. This Cookie Policy (“this
    Policy”) describes the purposes and mechanisms behind storing and accessing
    cookies and related technologies (collectively referred to as "Cookies and Other
    Technologies") on your device when you use or visit our website which features a
    link to this Policy. It's important to review this Policy in conjunction with our Privacy
    Notice and our Terms of Use for a comprehensive understanding of our practices.

    The primary objective of this Policy is to provide Qiddiya’s website users with a
    comprehensive understanding of the distinct types of cookies utilized on this website
    and the specific purposes they serve. In doing so, we aim to clarify the
    differentiation between first-party cookies and third-party cookies. This knowledge
    empowers our website users to make informed decisions about their privacy and
    online experience while interacting with our site.

1. Cookies and Other Technologies

  • A "cookie" is a small text file that a website downloads onto your web browser or
    internet-connected device, like a mobile phone or tablet, when you visit the website.
    The purpose of these cookies is to help the website identify and remember your
    device for your future visits.

    Cookies serve a wide range of functions, including remembering your preferences,
    monitoring your online activities, and enhancing your overall user experience. They
    empower the website's owner to distinguish between the actions taken by your
    device and those of other website users on the same website.

    It's important to note that the majority of cookies do not gather information that
    directly identifies you as an individual. Instead, their focus is on collecting more
    generalized data, such as your approximate location or how you find and utilize

    While cookies are the most well-known tracking technology, there are others, which
    function in a similar fashion. These alternative methods could encompass
    technologies like web beacons, pixel tags, and local storage (“Other Technologies”).

    insights into how you interact with their content.

    invaluable for our website to optimize its services and cater to your user
    preferences, it also helps improve website performance and enhance security.

    different party.

    The utilization of first-party and third-party cookies serves specific functions. First-
    party cookies are employed for our own website's needs, whereas third-party
    cookies, placed by external entities, come into play when we partner with these
    service providers for tasks like analytics and performance evaluation. It's important
    to note that these cookies are valuable tools for optimizing and personalizing the
    online experience for our website users.

    We employ different types of cookies on our website, depending on its
    specific requirements:

3. How to Decline or Revoke Your Cookie Consent:

  • Browser Settings:

    If you prefer not to have cookies stored on your device, you can modify your
    internet browser settings to either reject cookies or permit only certain types.
    Additionally, you can configure your browser to notify you when a cookie is being
    placed on your device. However, it's important to note that if you choose to block all
    cookies, even those that are strictly necessary for the site's operation, it may limit
    your ability to access and use all or certain features and functions on our websites.
    If you wish to delete cookies that were previously stored on your device, you can
    manually remove them at any time. Keep in mind that doing so will not prevent our
    websites from placing additional cookies on your device unless you adjust your
    internet browser settings as described above.

  • Preference Centre:

    Where available, you may also be able to change your cookie settings at any time in
    our preference centre, available via the cookie banner.
    In essence, you have the option to control and manage cookies, but this may impact
    your experience on our sites, especially if you block all cookies, including those
    necessary for the site's basic functionality.

4. Utilizing Other Tracking Technologies in our Communications:

  • At Qiddiya, we employ additional tracking technologies to enhance our
    understanding of your interaction with the knowledge, research, or event
    communications we send you. These technologies enable us to gather information
    about whether you've opened our messages or clicked on any embedded links. One
    of these technologies, known as a web beacon, plays a pivotal role in this process.

    A web beacon is a small graphic image that can be placed within a website or an
    email. It functions alone or in conjunction with cookies to collect data about how you
    use or engage with a Qiddiya website or email.

    The analysis generated from these tracking technologies aids us in refining the
    effectiveness of our websites and email communications. By understanding how you
    engage with our content and the format of our messages, we can tailor our
    communications to better suit your preferences and needs.

    You can prevent web beacons from being activated by configuring your email reader
    program to disable the feature that loads remote images. Additionally, you can avoid
    interacting with any links included in email messages to ensure that web beacons are not triggered. This way, you have control over the information gathered through
    these tracking technologies when you access and read your emails.

5. Changes to the cookies notice

  • We reserve the right to make modifications or amendments to this Policy as deemed
    necessary. When alterations are made, we will update the revision date at the top of
    this page, signifying the date from which the modified or amended Policy becomes
    effective with respect to you and your information.

    We encourage you to periodically revisit this Policy to stay informed about how we
    utilize cookies and any changes or updates to our cookie-related practices.
