Hopefully after reading this you’ll understand why, how, and when we use these cookies, and how they affect your session. We like to be transparent and honest so here are the cookies we use, so that is why we created the page related to our Cookies Policy.
1. Cookies – what are they?
Cookies are small pieces of data that are usually stored on your device (computer, smart phone, tablet…) and transmitted to the server with an individualized tag.
2. What is the purpose of cookies?
As an example, some cookies are vital to our site in order that we can keep providing you with our services, such as allowing you to browse the site the way it should be. Without cookies, your visit will probably be disrupted or the site will not function properly. These cookies do not collect any information about your behavior or preferences, so they cannot be used for marketing purposes.
3. Functional cookies
We use functional cookies on our site to track your preferences when you visit us such as your language or geographic location so that we can offer you services in your own language and you can find information regarding your own location.
4. Performance cookies
These cookies help us to keep improving our website as we can control the download speeds and broadband width so that your device don’t have to download the same data all over again on every visit. All of this data gathering is anonymous and collective so one cannot be individualized based on this data. If you disallow these cookies, your device needs to download more data every time you visit thus making the visit slower and possibly dysfunctional.
5. Analytic cookies
We do use Google Analytics that is maybe the most used web analytics service globally. Google is using this information to evaluate how visitors use the page and to conduct reports based on that data. We use this information in order to improve our site both technically and from the perspective of user experience.
Data is always collective and the information Google Analytics provides is based on large trends rather than individual behaviour. These trends are used to develop our service and platform and to make the page perform better. To be more specific, the data contains information such as number of visits, time of visit and which pages and sub-pages visitors go to.
6. Marketing cookies
In order to improve our services we use marketing cookies with third parties so that we can offer you better content based on your liking’s and interests. Out service providers provide us cookies and other tracking tools so that you can get exactly the services and offers you’ve been advertised.
7. How to change my cookies settings?
You can choose what cookies you’d like to use and what not. It is advised to use all of them so that the site will work as it has been planned to. Disabling cookies can lead to worse user experience and all features and functions might not be available to use.
If you do wish to modify your cookies settings you can find instructions and settings from your online browser’s management and control centre.
