What are cookies
Cookies are small pieces of information that are installed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. They allow to recognise that a user has previously visited the site and they save some information about that user for when he/she accesses the site again in the future.
There are different types of cookies depending on their purposes, some of them are used to make the website’s use more efficient and others enable functions more effectively. Cookies can be stored permanently on your computer and have a variable duration (persistent cookies), but they can also disappear when the browser is closed or have a limited duration (session cookies). Cookies can be installed from the Site you are visiting (first-party cookies) or they can be installed by other websites (third-party cookies).
Types of cookies we use
The following are the different types of cookies we use according to their purposes; they can be first-party or third-party cookies:
These are cookies that are essential to make the Website work and enable features that users have specifically asked for. Without their use, these features could not operate. Because these cookies are strictly necessary, we do not need to ask for your consent to use them.
These cookies collect anonymous data for statistical purposes on how visitors use the Website, including numbers of visitors and visits, length of time spent on the site, pages clicked on or where visitors have come from.
Targeting cookies are set to show targeted advertisements based on your interests on the Website or to manage our advertising. These cookies collect information about your activities on this Website and other sites to provide you with targeted advertising.
Google Ads and Conversion Tracking
This tracking cookie is set on your browser only when you click on a Google Ads ad and it help us increase the website’s effectiveness for our visitors. This cookie lasts 30 days and does not collect or monitor information that can personally identify a user. Users can disable Google conversion tracking cookies in their Internet browser settings. To learn more about it, please read the Google privacy and terms at https://policies.google.com.
Our website could also use the features of Google Remarketing combined with Google Ads. This service is provided by Google Inc.
This is a process we would like to use to contact you again. This application allows you to see our advertisements after visiting our website when you continue to use the Internet so that we can advertise previous visitors who have not completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which are used to record and evaluate your usage behaviour when you visit various websites. This way Google can determine your previous visit to our website.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
