This policy explains our use of cookies and other technologies to understand, improve and protect LocalBini.


Cookies are small data files that are issued to your device when you visit a website and that store information about your use of a service. Pixel tags (which are also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels) are little snippets of code or tiny images embedded on websites and in email that help us learn how you interact with our site and emails.

We may also use other technologies with similar functionality to cookies, such as web beacons and tracking URLs to obtain Log Data to determine whether you opened a certain message or accessed a certain link.


LocalBini uses cookies and these other technologies to help recognize you as a repeat visitor and, to improve the quality of our Services.


When you visit LocalBini, our web server sends a cookie to your device, which allows us to recognize your device (but not the specific person using it). By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other account information when, for example, you log in to our Services, we know that the cookie information relates to your user account.
Similarly, pixel tags on LocalBini and in email communications help us identify how your device is being used to interact with LocalBini content. Some of the tags and cookies used by our Services are served by us, and some are served by trusted partners who are delivering services on our behalf.

A few examples of the types of cookies and other technologies LocalBini uses:


LocalBini uses authentication cookies and similar technologies to tell us when you’re logged in to LocalBini. This lets us show you personalized views related to your interests and connect you with projects like those you may already have backed.


Cookies also help keep LocalBini secure by facilitating security features and allowing us to detect activity that might violate our rules and Terms of Use.

These cookies help protect your account from being accessed by anyone other than you, alert you and us when your account is accessed, and provide capabilities that allow us to disable any active sessions you have (for example, when you log out or change your password).


Some cookies help us provide localized experiences — for example, by making sure you see LocalBini in your preferred language.

Site features and services

LocalBini uses cookies that provide functionality and help us deliver our products and services — for instance, by storing your preferences or by pre-filling the username field when you log in.


Performance cookies help us route traffic between servers and understand how LocalBini is performing, so we can provide you with the best experience possible. We may use third party software development kits (SDK) in our mobile apps to collect information about activity in the app, the type of device and operating system it is running on and how the app is functioning. For example an SDK may send us a report if the app crashes, and reports on which features of the app are used more than others.

Analytics and research

Cookies and other technologies also help us to understand, improve, and research features and content on the LocalBini site. For example, we may use cookies to understand how you are discovering projects or to determine which types of browsers or devices are accessing LocalBini. You can opt-out of being included in Google Analytics here.

Social Media Platforms

Cookies and other technologies make interacting with social media platforms more seamless. For example, when you’re signed into social media accounts while you use our Services, these technologies enable you to share content with your social network or, in some cases, log in using your social media credentials. These features are usually controlled by the social media platform you are using and are governed by its separate privacy policies and the preferences you set with that service.


Cookies help us deliver targeted advertisements on social media platforms, based on your activity on LocalBini, including the experiences you visited on LocalBini, and to track the performance of those ads. This is sometimes referred to as online behavioral advertising. In some cases, our partners may use cookies to provide us with information about your interactions with their services. Those third-party cookies would be subject to the third party service’s policies. Certain choices you make are both browser- and device-specific.

You can control certain cookies

Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies. How you do so depends on the type of cookie. Certain browsers can be set to reject browser cookies. Blocking or deleting cookies may prevent you from using most of our Services. To find out more about how to enable, disable, or delete cookies from your web browser, please visit here. To control flash cookies, which may be used on certain websites from time to time, you can go here. Why? Because flash cookies cannot be controlled through your browser settings.

Our Do Not Track Policy

Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our sites may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.
Certain options you select are browser- and device-specific.

We may also allow our business partners/Third Parties to use their cookies and other tracking technologies through LocalBini. As a result, when you access or use LocalBini, you will provide or make available certain information to us and to our business partners.
Please note that even if you choose to opt-out of receiving targeted advertising, you may still receive advertising on or about LocalBini, but not tailored to the User’s interests. In addition, if you disables cookies, you may lose some of the features and functionality of using LocalBini, Application and Services, as cookies are necessary to track and enhance your use and access.
