In addition to the cookies set on our own sites, we utilize cookies for analytics. This tallies the unique numbers of visitors to a site, as well as the number from specific geographic locations. A visitor is counted when we see a user or browser for the first time in a given period.
Below are examples of the cookies set by VIP Carpet Cleaning, with explanations of their purpose. Some of these cookies are set across our whole network, whereas some are specific to individual services (e.g. WordPress.com, Longreads, etc). Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, but rather aims to be representative. Information about cookies that may be set by third parties, such as our ads partners, is below. Additionally, we occasionally set referrer cookies as well.
In addition, people and companies that use our services to publish or host their own sites may place additional cookies. We provide more information on these cookies below.

Advertisements from Third Parties Through Various Ads Programs
Our mission is to drive income via third party advertisers. So that we can offer free access to those interested in our articles, we show ads on just about all of our web pages. Additionally, we also show ads from our ads partners on most of our other websites.
Below is a representative list of our advertising program partners, along with information on the cookies that that each partner sets. The partners we work with change from time to time, and this is not an exhaustive list. Your choices to control cookies related to our ads program are described below.
