1. ABOUT COOKIES

A cookie is a small text file that a website asks to place on your computer, mobile phone, or other device when you visit a website. A cookie can help the website provider recognize your device, either for the duration of your visit (using a so-called session cookie) or for repeat visits (using a so-called persistent cookie), provide you with access to certain functions on the Website and/or register your surf patterns. There are other technologies such as pixel tags, web bugs, web storage and other similar files and technologies that can do the same thing as cookies. The term “cookies” in this Cookie Policy refers to cookies and all such similar technologies.
There are two main kinds of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are deleted from your computer when you close your browser, whereas persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach their expiry date.

2. COOKIES ON OUR WEBSITE

We use the following cookies on our Website, for the following purposes:
 – Essential operational (strictly necessary) cookies: These cookies are necessary for us to operate the service you have requested. For example, they allow us to recognize you and then provide you with the service accordingly. These cookies are both persistent and session cookies. The Website cannot function without these cookies. Strictly necessary cookies do not require your consent as they enable services you have asked for and which cannot be provided otherwise.
Strictly Necessary is set to ‘Always On’ on the Website. You can set your browser to disable all cookies, which would also turn off our strictly necessary cookies as our cookie settings will then become irrelevant. This would mean that performance of the Website will be impacted.
 – Analytics (performance) cookies: We use these cookies to analyze how the services are accessed, used or how they are performing, so we can measure and improve the performance of the Website. We use this information to maintain, operate and continually improve our Services and to target our marketing of our Services. These cookies are both persistent and session cookies.
 – Functional cookies: We use these cookies to operate certain functions of the services in line with the choices you make. These cookies mean that when you continue to use or come back to the services, it is provided as you have previously requested, e.g. remembering your username and how you have customized the service. These cookies are both persistent and session cookies.

2.1 Tracking Technologies

Like cookies, functions usually performed by a cookie can be achieved by other technologies, such as using certain characteristics to identify devices so that visits to a website can be analysed, or using a tracking pixel in marketing emails to record information on the device used to read them – such as the operating system of the device, or the time of day the email was opened. You can choose to accept the use of tracking technologies by clicking on the button “Cookie settings” and switching on ‘Performance Cookies’.

4.2 Google Analytics
We use features of Google Analytics to provide us with information on how the Website is used. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies and tracking technologies, as detailed in the table above, to allow an analysis of your use of the Website. The information collected by the cookie or tracking technology, including data related to the device/browser, IP address and website/app activities, is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States, where it will be stored and analysed by Google. The respective results will then be made available to us in anonymised form, e.g. in the form of reports on website activity. Google Analytics provides us with detailed visitor demographic data, how behaviours can be tracked against “typical” journeys, the routes you take through the Website, and how traffic trends compare across different time periods. Google may use the transmitted data for any of its own purposes, such as profiling and personalised advertising, and may link them with other user data such as your IP address, search history, personal accounts, usage data of other devices and any other data that Google has about you as a user. This may also allow Google to identify links to an existing Google account. Local state authorities may also have access to this data pursuant to the applicable laws. Transfers of personal data to Google are based on the standard contractual clauses issued by the European Commission, ensuring that an adequate level of data protection is maintained with respect to the processing of personal data by Google in the US.

We do not use the Google ‘anonymizeIp’ extension, which would partially improve your data protection by shortening the IP address but would still not entirely anonymise any data processed by Google. For details of Google LLC’s privacy policy click here.
We do not use Google Analytics to collect any data from children or those in sensitive categories, data related to payments, financial transactions, or credit history/worthiness, including credit card and bank account numbers, data used for authentication or precise location data, or any other end user current location that requires location platform permissions.

How Google retains the data they collect

Some of the data Google collect can be deleted when you choose, some data is deleted automatically and some data they retain for longer periods of time, when necessary. When you delete data, Google state that they follow a deletion policy to make sure that your data is safely and completely removed from their servers or retained only in an anonymous form. Please see How Google anonymises data on their website for more information.
