Kijiji Cookie Policy


Our website uses cookies, web beacons, and third parties to provide you with services that support your buying and selling activities within our online marketplace. To protect your privacy, use of these tools is limited. For more information on our privacy practices, see our Privacy Policy.

About cookies

"Cookies" are small files placed on the hard drive of your computer. Kijiji uses cookies to provide services to you and to help ensure account security. Most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive once you end your session (log out or close your browser).

Kijiji uses cookies on certain pages of the website to:

  • Enable you to enter your password (where necessary) less frequently during a session.
  • Provide information that is targeted to your interests.
  • Promote and enforce trust and safety.
  • Offer certain features that are only available through the use of cookies.
  • Measure promotional effectiveness.
  • Analyze our site traffic.

Cookies we use for trust and safety (Flash cookies) - Kijiji uses Flash cookies, which are cookies written with flash technology, to help ensure that your account security is not compromised and to spot irregularities in behaviour to prevent your account from being fraudulently taken over.

Managing Flash cookies

As with browser cookies, we recommend you do not delete Flash cookies. If you delete Flash cookies, you may need to enter verification information more frequently for security reasons.

If you need to delete Flash cookies for technical or security reasons, or to eliminate browser slowness, here's what to do:

  1. Go to the Settings Manager for Adobe Flash Player. (If you aren't taken to a website, it means you do not have Adobe Flash Player. In that case, contact the support center for your Flash software.)
  2. Click the websites whose cookies you want to delete.
  3. Click Delete website.

Your choices about cookies - We offer certain features that are only available through the use of a cookie. You're always free to decline cookies if your browser permits. However, if you decline cookies, you may not be able to use certain features on the website, and you may be required to re-enter your password more frequently during a session. You can learn how to set your browser to accept cookies by consulting your browser’s help function.

Web beacons

A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1 x 1) or clear GIF placed in the web page code. Web beacons serve many of the same purposes as cookies. In addition, web beacons are used to track the traffic patterns of users from one page to another in order to maximize web traffic flow.

Use of cookies and web beacons by third parties

Kijiji works with DoubleClick, Google Analytics, MediaPlex, Crazy Egg, Webtrends and other service providers who use technology to help us deliver our own content, deliver targeted advertising and compile anonymous site metrics and analytics. We require these companies to use the information they collect only to provide us with these services under contract. Although these companies use some anonymous information about you to display ads, we don’t permit these companies to collect any personal information about you.

Many of our service providers participate in the NAI opt-out program. You have the option to opt out of the use of such information for such purpose by clicking here.

Learn more about Webtrends business practices and privacy policies, including how to decline participation in their program.

We do not permit third-party content on Kijiji (such as item listings) to include cookies or web beacons. If you believe a listing might be collecting personal information or using cookies, please report it to Customer Support.
