This Policy also describes how you can manage cookies and similar technologies.

1.What are Cookies and Similar Technologies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website stores   on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. Cookies enable you   to personalize your experience on our sites, remember your preferences for a   certain period of time, and help us improve the effectiveness of ads and web   searches. Cookie store information that is related to the specific terminal device   used. This does not mean, however, that we obtain immediate knowledge of your   identity. The content of a cookie can be retrieved and read only by the   server that created the cookie.

We may use other Cookie-like technologies, such as pixels   or web beacons, for the purposes that cookies enable. Pixels on our   website also deliver information read from your device to our servers and/or   third-party servers to analyze usage of our services, or to provide content   and advertisements that are more relevant to you.  These pixels are categorized and managed in   the same way as cookies. For the purposes of this policy, we refer to all of the above technologies collectively   as "Cookies".

We will do our best to avoid collecting information   (such as names, phone numbers, email addresses, GPS coordinates or other   precise locations, etc.) that could be used on its own to directly identify,   contact or precisely locate an individual through cookies or similar   technologies. However, we normally   need to collect pseudonymous end user identifiers (such as pseudonymous   cookie IDs, pseudonymous advertising IDs, etc.), IP addresses, and other   basic information about devices/browsers.

Please   note that when you first visit our website, we will pop up a Cookie Banner   and provide you with this Cookie Policy. If you continue to use the website,   you are deemed to have read and agreed that we use cookies to process your   data in accordance with this Cookie Policy.

2.Cookies: Types, Categories, and Purposes of Use


We categorize two different types of cookies as   follows: 

a) First-Party Cookies  

First-party Cookies are placed by the website you   are visiting itself, more precisely on the website’s domain. Almost all   websites must use First-party Cookies to ensure the smooth provision of the   website and its features. The information stored in First-party Cookies can   only be read by the website you are visiting.

b)Third-Party Cookies

Third-Party Cookies are cookies set by domains other   than the one you are visiting. Our website may also display content from a   third-party website or service, which may result in Third-Party Cookies being   stored on your device or browser and visited by such third party. We do not   control the storage and use of these cookies by these third parties. We   encourage you to review the privacy policies of relevant third-party providers   on their websites for information on their use of Cookies.

2.2 Categories   and Purposes of Use

Cookies can be divided into four categories based on   different purposes:

a)Strictly Necessary   Cookies

These are cookies that are required for the   operation of our website and other service offerings. They include, for   example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website;   without these cookies, we cannot offer you services, such as shopping baskets  and displaying website information.

b) Functionality   Cookies

These cookies are used to recognize you when you   return to our website or log into our other service offerings. For instance,   we may store your geographic location in a cookie to ensure that we show you   the localized website that is customized to your region. This enables us to   personalize our content for you, greet you by name, and remember your   preferences.

c) Analytic/Performance   Cookies

These cookies allow us to recognize and count   visitors and visitor sources and to see how visitors navigate through our   website and other service offerings, such as to see which pages you visit   most, so as to help us improve the way our website and other service   offerings work. We use, without limitation, Google Analytics ("GA"), Contentsquare ("CS"), and similar Analytic/Performance Cookies to achieve such purpose.

As Google has stated, the information generated by GA   cookies will normally be stored on Google servers and your IP address will be   shortened by Google beforehand. In exceptional cases only, your full IP   address will be transmitted to Google servers and shortened there. On our   behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of compiling reports   on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity   and internet usage. The IP address transmitted from your browser as part of   Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. For more information, please visit the Help Center   of GA at https://support.google.com/analytics/#topic=1008008.

The information generated by CS cookies will be   stored on CS servers within the EEA. For more information, please visit Contentsquare   Services Privacy Policy at https://contentsquare.com/services-privacy-policy/.

The retention period of Analytic/Performance Cookies varies typically from as short as the   duration you browse the webpages up to 13 months, depending on the individual   purpose of the cookie.

d) Targeting   Cookies

These cookies record your visit to our website and   other service offerings, the pages you have visited, and the links you have   followed. We will use this information to make our website, other service   offerings,  or advertisements more   relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with our carefully   selected third parties for this purpose, such as TikTok, Google, and Twitter.

We, and our carefully selected business partners,   may use targeting cookies when we display advertisements for our products or   services on third-party websites, so that we can know which sites and   advertisements our customers have seen and which advertisements they have   interacted with. Based on the information collected by these cookies,   third-party websites may provide you with advertisements that are more   relevant to your interests.
