247 Spades Cookie Policy

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. We also store data through a browser technology called local storage. These are generally considered the same in terms of data storage, privacy standards, and regulation. As such, we'll simply refer to all browser-side storage technology as cookies. Most big websites store data this way.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website - when visited by a user - asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you and your actions: such as your desired website settings, website state, advertising information, and game save data. This helps us save and load your game progress and settings so you don't have to start over when you come back to this site or move from one page to another.

Cookies set by us are called first party cookies. We also use third party cookies - which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting - for our advertising and marketing efforts as well as social media support.
