What is a cookie?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).
Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
Our website uses the below technologies for advertising purposes. Those are modern, advanced analysis methods and tools to understand users’ habits on our website. This information helps us improve our products and services and provide relevant services and information. In principle, we use only anonymised data that does not allow us to identify the user.
Below we describe the analysis services and technology that we use for such purposes. Additionally, we show how you can prevent these services from analysis of your use of our website.
Google Analytics and AdSense
Google Adwords Conversions
Google AdWords Conversions and Google DoubleClick Floodlight enable us to determine how clicks on adverts or information on Google platforms effectively lead to transactions and similar user actions on our website. These features use temporary cookies from Google and do not process user data. Google provides options to prevent the use of these cookies; alternatively, you can change the settings in your browser.
Google Dynamic Remarketing
With Google Dynamic Remarketing, we can use the anonymised IDs generated by cookies (e.g. Google Analytics) to compile groups and lists of users and website visitors based on certain criteria, e.g. certain activities or from existing datasets, in order to provide users with information and advertisements for our services and content, tailored to their interests and preferences, on Google’s services. Google cookies are also used for this. You can prevent the use of these cookies for advertisements on Google services and by several other providers at the Digital Advertising Alliance page.
Google Tag Manager
We use Google Tag Manager to embed tags in our website. When it detects an incoming http request, it collects the IP address and stores it temporarily in order to correct any connection errors.
Google Search Console
Social Media Widgets
