We collect information to provide better services to all our users — from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most useful, the people who matter most to you online, or which videos you might like. We do store the information we collect with unique identifiers tied to the browser, application, or device you’re using. This helps us do things like maintain your language preferences across browsing sessions and serve you better. In addition, device type and settings, operating system, mobile network information including carrier name and phone number, and application version number are collected when you use our apps or browse our websites.

We use the information we collect to customize our services for you, including providing recommendations, personalized content, and customized search results. Depending on your settings, we may also show you personalized ads based on your interests. For example, if you search for “Car,” you may see an ad for automotive.
