Storing cookies on your computer provides an easy and convenient way for us to personalize or improve your experience on our site and make your next visit more pleasant.
• What is cookie mode?
A "cookie" ("browser cookie", "HTTP cookie" or "internet cookie") is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which can be stored on the user's terminal (computer, mobile or another device from which the Internet is accessed). The cookie is installed through the request issued by a web server to a browser (i.e.: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari) and is completely "passive" (it does not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard disk). The duration of existence of a cookie is determined.
Cookies are considered standard for most current browsers and are widely used both to enable the provision of online services and increase their efficiency, and to provide information to the providers of these services about your experiences while browsing the site. When you use these online services again, your browser sends previously stored cookies back to the online service. In this way, the online service recognizes you and remembers important information about you that helps it personalize and facilitate the experience it offers to you, for example by remembering your saved preferences.
We and our partners also use other technologies, including data stored on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device, and other software applications for similar purposes. These include the following:
- The pixel labels: “Pixel labels” (also called web beacons or pixels) are little code files installed on (or requested by) a web page, an e-mail address, an application or an advertisement that collects certain information about your device and browser and how you interact with them. This information includes, for example, your device type, operating system, browser type and version, visited website, time of visit, website that redirected you, IP address, whether you opened an email or clicked on an advertisement and other similar information, including the small text file (cookie) that identifies the device. Through pixel tags, certain third-party companies can set and read cookies on a domain not operated by them and collect information about visitors to that domain, usually with the permission of the domain owner.
- Local storage: This generally refers to other places on a browser or device where information may be stored by websites, advertisements or third-party companies (i.e. local storage and HTML5 browser cache).
- Device identifiers: We may also collect your IP address, unique device identifier or create a unique device fingerprint (this is a unique combination of various information on the device so that we can identify it), in order to identify your device. We may then use this information in a similarly to cookies.
In this policy, we refer to all these and similar technologies as "cookies". These technologies may be used to recognize when your device performs operations. For example, they may recognize when you visit pages on our site or other sites, use parts of an application, or open emails we send you or links in technologies.
• Why cookies are used on the Site
Our cookies allow the timely identification of users who have visited our site before, without compromising personal data. In order to offer you the best services, we will use both "permanent" cookies and "session cookies". Permanent cookies serve to offer you a better navigation on our website.
Disabling these cookies does not affect the possibility of using the site.
The data stored in the session cookies are valid only for your current visit and offer the possibility of full use of the services available on our website.
Although the cookies used by the Site change from time to time as we improve and update the Site, they generally fall into the usage categories below:
a) Cookie modules strictly necessary
These cookies are essential for the provision of services specifically requested by website visitors. Without them, the websites cannot function and cannot provide the requested services.
b) Cookie modules necessary to improve performance
Many of the features above can work without these cookies. However, your experience may suffer and you may need to mention your preferences for each individual visit.
Sometimes we may collaborate with certain partners to better understand and analyze how you interact with the Site; they may store analytics and research cookies on our behalf. For example, we use third-party analytics providers, such as Google Analytics, to help us assess and report the use of the Site. These companies may set and read their own tracking technologies to collect information about your online activities.
Without these cookies, your experience may be harmed.
d) Advertising cookies
We and our partners may match any of the information we collect through cookies and other technologies (such as browser history):
- with information you provide; and
- with information we obtain from other sources, including online and offline data providers (such as demographic and interest-based data); and
- when you agree to this, in compliance with your privacy settings on social media sites, with information we obtain from social media sites (such as those related to your use of the site or to your posts, messages or comments on that site).
Another classification between cookies is made according to their source: "primary" cookies or "third party" cookies. "Primary" cookies are created by the site you are visiting, and "third party" cookies are created by a site other than the one visited. The www.verlinne.com site allows third-party cookies only from sites approved by the company.
• Who places cookies on my device?
As the operator of the Site, the company can store cookies on your device. These cookies are so-called "own cookies". It is also possible that one of our partners places certain cookies on your device when you use the Site (i.e. when you visit a page with embedded content, for example, from YouTube or Facebook, or social network widgets such as the Facebook "Like" button). These are called "third-party cookies" and are used to provide services to us and others.
