POLICY REGARDING COOKIES
A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your browser, and allows it to remember information between web pages and browser sessions. The company uses a number of first-party cookies generated and used by the website and some are external cookies that are generated on our website by third parties. They allow us to remember each part of your activity on our website, remember your user details and display appropriate content based on the choices you make. They also help us to understand user behaviour on our website, which means we can improve your experience on our website.
Cookies can only store text, which is usually always anonymous and encrypted. The company will never store any personal information in a cookie.
What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files generated by the websites you visit, which contain session data that may be useful later on in the website. The data allows the website to keep track of your information between pages, and also to analyse how you interact with the Site.
Cookies are secure as they can only store information that is put in place by the browser, which is information that the user has entered into the browser or that which is included in the page request. It cannot execute code and cannot be used to access your computer. If a website encrypts the cookie information, only the website can read the information.
There are several types of cookies that are used for different things and contain different information.
Session cookies contain information that is used within your current browser session. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Nothing is retained on your computer beyond the time you spend on the Web Site.
Persistent cookies are used to store information that is used between visits. This data allows the Webspace to recognise that you are a regular customer and to react accordingly. Persistent cookies can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the cookie manager.
Analytical cookies are a type of cookie used to collect statistics on user activity when visiting the website and general website activity. The information collected is anonymous and allows us to optimise browsing on our website and guarantee the best possible service to the user. The user can exclude their activity by means of the opt-out systems provided by the analytical tools.
Why are cookies used?
Cookies are used by the website to maintain the session as you progress through the website, and to manage online orders. With the Google Analytics service, cookies allow us to track customer interaction within the website. This gives us valuable insights that allow us to improve the website and the products and services we offer.
Deactivation and deletion of cookies
All internet browsers allow you to limit the behaviour of a cookie or disable cookies within your browser settings or options. The steps to do this are different for each browser and help instructions can be found in your browser menu.
Through your browser, you can also view the cookies that are on your computer, and delete them as you see fit. Cookies are text files, you can open them and read the contents. The data inside them is almost always encrypted with a numeric key that corresponds to a session on the Internet so it is often meaningless beyond the website that wrote it.
Disabling cookies will also affect the tracking of your progress through the Space, but will not stop the Google Analytics code from recognising your visit.
Cookies from technology partners. Google
Google works with the company for web analytics and advertising. The data from the cookies tells Google which pages, products and services have been visited, and allows them to find corresponding advertisements. Google writes both session and persistent cookies. Cookies collect the IP address of the user and Google is responsible for the processing of this information. We remind you that deleting or disabling cookies does not limit the functionality of the Site.
