1. What are cookies

  

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies.

Persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date.

Session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

3. Third-party statistic cookies

In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third parties’ cookies to report usage statistics of the Site. We also use some cookies from third-party companies, such as Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the Site analyze how you use it. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Site (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on its servers. The data collected by Google for its subsequent analysis includes:

  • technical data regarding your device (model, operating system, specific device identifiers, and mobile network information, including any phone number associated to the device, etc.)

  • logging on data (search enquiries, phone numbers used to make, receive & forward calls, time, date, length & type of calls, etc.)

  • internet protocol address

  • device activity (settings, browser types, languages, system operations, dates & times of URL request & referral

  • cookies specifically linked to your browsers or accounts.

  • location (IP address, GPS, Wi-Fi access points and cellular towers)

  • application installation data (installing & uninstalling certain services)

  • localized device storage (browsing history, caches, etc.)

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Site, compiling reports on your activity on the Site, and providing other services relating to your activity on the Site and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Google's privacy policy is available at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Visitor Analytics

Visitor Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic on our website and website visitors' general details. We collect statistics like which pages visitors visit and when, where they are approximately located, where they land first or if they are coming from a specific referral, to make our website visitors' experience better.

 

As a website operator using Visitor Analytics, we process information about our visitors' device type and screen size/resolution, approximate location, browser, OS, IPs, page visits, bounce rate, conversions, conversion funnels, average sessions per visitor, average pages per session, average session duration, time spent on the website and preferably visited content on the website. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will not use the collected data to identify individual users or to match the data with additional information on an individual user.

We do not use cookies to collect this data. Instead, we use the so-called fingerprinting technology that does not require placing any cookies, files or technology on your device. Fingerprinting relies on your device’s technical attributes and combines them to identify your device as a unique device and allow for reliable analytics.

Visitor Recordings

Visitor Recordings is an additional feature to Visitor Analytics (described above) in the form of a simple website replay tool that records in statistics where our website visitors scrolled to and what they clicked on our website. We can see this information in playbacks and so called “heatmaps”. Collecting these statistics helps us to make our website more user-friendly as well as to reproduce and fix technical errors.

Basically, as a website operator using Visitor Recordings, we are using a snippet of tracking code to collect data about our visitors’ journey on our websites, which subpages they visit, what they clicked on, where they moved their mouse cursor to and where they scrolled. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will not use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user.

5. Google reCAPTCHA

We use reCAPTCHA, the service provided by Google, to verify whether you are a human being and not a robot. It helps to protect the Site against spam and abuse. The reCAPTCHA analysis takes place in the background. When you use reCAPTCHA, Google will collect some personal and non-personal data from you, such as:

  • All cookies sent to your browser by Google in the last 6 months;

  • Information about your mouse clicks;

  • CSS information;

  • Date;
