A cookie is a small piece of text that is used to remember something about you or your device.
Without cookies, every time you visit picturesdown.com, we cannot remember who you are and we cannot do many of the things you expect from us. We cannot let you log in because we forget who you are. We cannot let you save properties or search results because we forget what you are looking for.
If you are really worried about cookies, you can turn them off completely, but like many websites, picturesdown.com just won’t work well, or won’t work at all. Your best bet would be to disable third-party cookies, which will prevent most websites from sharing information about you.
You can find a great guide to disabling some or all cookies here.

Cookies to improve the site
We regularly test new designs or site features at picturesdown.com. We do this by showing slightly different versions of our website to different people and by anonymously tracking how visitors react to those different versions. This ultimately helps us to offer you a better website.
Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither we, nor advertisers, nor our advertising partners can obtain personally identifiable information from these cookies. We only work with advertising partners who operate in accordance with accepted privacy standards.
You can learn more about online advertising at www.youronlinechoices.com , where you can opt out of almost all advertising cookies – although opting out of advertising cookies doesn’t mean you won’t see ads, it just won’t be tailored to you anymore.
These advertisements are usually managed by a partner specializing in providing advertisements for multiple sites. These partners place cookies to collect anonymous data about the websites you visit, so that they can personalize ads for you, make sure you don’t see the same ads too often, and tell advertisers which ads are working.
You may notice that sometimes after visiting a site, you see an increase in the number of ads from the site you visited. This is because advertisers, sometimes ourselves, pay for these ads. For this, cookies are used, so you can receive ‘remarketing cookies’ while visiting. We may use this advertisement to encourage you to return to picturesdown.com by showing items that may interest you. Don’t worry, the whole process is completely anonymous and you can opt out of these cookies at any time as described above.
