Data that we collect from every visitor, and why we collect them
1. Website Function Cookies
2. Anonymous visitor statistics cookies
Anonymized data, collected by Google Analytics, such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website, and deliver new and useful content for you, and all our visitors.
It is impossible to identify a particular person from the anonymous data collected by Google Analytics. We have also turned off all options in Google Analytics settings that may (when turned on) result in Google sharing our traffic data with their partners (Google products & services, Bench-marking, Account specialist are disabled in our account).
2. Google Adwords cookies – non-personalized data
To support our website, and to cover the hosting and domain expenses associated with running our business, we display some Ads from Google Adwords network on the pages on our website. However, for all visitors coming from EEA region, we display only non-personalized ads.
Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.
Non-personalized ads are ads that are not based on a user’s past behavior. They are targeted using contextual information, including coarse (such as city-level) geo-targeting based on current location, and content on the current site or app or current query terms. Google disallows all interest-based audience targeting, including demographic targeting and user list targeting for these ads.
You can learn more about online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com . You can actually opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices . It is worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they won’t be tailored to you any longer.
Another alternative to indirectly opt out from cookies related to Google Ads, is installing Ad blocker (if you install it, you won’t see any Ads, and no cookies related to Ads will be sent to your device).
It is up to you to decide what action you will take.
