Management Policy Of Cookie Files – www.vesmart.eu

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is a small file, generally made up of letters and numbers, downloaded to a computer’s memory (or any browsing equipment, e.g., mobile phone, tablet, etc.) when the user accesses a particular website.

Cookies are created when the browser used by a user, displays a particular website; the website sends information to the browser, creating a text file. Each time the user accesses that website again, the browser accesses and transmits this file to the website’s server.

In other words, the cookie acts as a digital User ID that alerts the website every time the same user returns to the site in question.


WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A COOKIE?

For informational purposes only (e.g. to let us know if you do not register, authenticate, or otherwise share additional information with our website).

We only collect and process data that your browser and internet provider send to our server. This data is technically necessary for us to display our website and to guarantee stability and security.

Specifically, this refers to:

– Technical data (IP addresses, date and time of access, content of the access request, access status/HTML status code, time difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), volume of data transmitted per session)
– Information about the operating system/browser data (operating system, interface, browser, language and browser version)

To make all the functions of the website available and to fulfill our own obligations, we both transmit your data to our service providers and receive data from them.

We also store the data listed above in Log Files: this storage facilitates website functionality and optimizes our presence to ensure ongoing security.

This data will not be stored alongside other personal data.

Cookies provide a quicker and simpler interaction between users and websites. For example, when authenticating a user on a particular website, authentication data is stored in a cookie; so, the user can then access that site without having to re-authenticate.

In other cases, cookies can be used to store information about user activities on a particular web page, so they can quickly resume precious activities when accessing a site.

Cookies inform the server which pages the site should show the user so that the user does not have to remember this detail or navigate the entire site from scratch.

Cookies can be likened to “bookmarks,” telling the user exactly where they are on a website.


COOKIES ON WWW.VESMART.EU

WordPress Platform

WordPress uses cookies, or small pieces of information, stored directly on your computer to check who you are.

There are cookies for both logged-in users and commentators.

WooCommerce Cookies

To keep track of cart data, WooCommerce makes use of 3 cookies:

  • woocommerce_cart_hash
  • woocommerce_items_in_cart
  • wp_woocommerce_session_

The first two cookies contain information about the cart as a whole and helps WooCommerce know when the cart data changes. The final cookie (wp_woocommerce_session_) contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find the cart data in the database for each customer. No personal information is stored within these cookies.

Google Analytics

(a) The present website uses Google Analytics; a data analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses “cookies,” which are text files stored on your computer that help analyze how you use a website. Cookie-generated information about your use is usually sent to a US-based Google server and stored there.

However, if IP anonymization is enabled on a website, your IP address will be abbreviated in the first instance by Google within a member state of the European Union, or other parties to the agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will then be transferred to a US server in the US, abbreviated only in exceptional cases.

In the name of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to assess how you use the website, compile reports on your activity on the website, and provide the website operator with additional website and internet services.

(b) The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not corroborated with other Google data.

(c) You can refuse cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, do not forget that if you do, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You may also prevent Google from collecting cookie data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as processing data if you download and install the plug-in browser available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl&hl=en-GB

(d) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()”. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form so that personal allocation can be excluded. To the extent that the data collected is of a personal nature, it is excluded and deleted immediately.

(e) We use Google Analytics to analyze and improve your experience of our website, and to improve our offering, making it more engaging for you as a user.

In exceptional cases where personal data is transferred to the US, Google is subject to the Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework).

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1 (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Facebook

Our site uses a shortcut to our Facebook page.

Use social networking extensions (plug-ins):

(a) We are currently using the following social networking extensions: Facebook.

We use the double-click solution: this means that when you visit our page, no personal data is sent to the extension providers. You can recognize the extension provider by highlighting its first letter or logo in the box above.

We offer you the ability to communicate directly with the extension provider via the button. Only if you click on the marked area and activate it in this way, will the extension provider receive the information you have accessed on that site. On Facebook, the IP address is encrypted immediately after collection as confirmed by the provider.

By enabling the extension, personal data is transferred from you to the provider of that extension and stored by it (US for US suppliers). Since the extension provider collects data primarily through cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the gray box by using your browser’s security settings.

(b) We have no influence over the collected data and data processing methods, and we do not know the full extent to which data is collected, the purposes for which it is processed, or the periods of storage.

Moreover, we do not have information relating to the deletion of data collected by the extension provider.

(c) The Extension Provider stores collected data as user profiles and uses it for advertising purposes, market research, and/or the design of your own website experience as per your request.

Such usage primarily takes place (similarly for non-authenticated users) for advertising purposes, and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of a user profile, but you must contact the respective extension provider to exercise this right.

With these extensions, we offer you the ability to interact with social networks and with other users, so that we can improve our services and make them more engaging for you as a user.

The legal basis for the use of these extensions is Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1 (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

(d) Data is transferred whether you have an account with that extension provider or not and whether you are logged in at that point.

If you have logged in through the extension provider, the data collected will be assigned directly to the account you have with the extension provider. If you click the activation button and link the page, the extension provider stores this information in your user account and distributes it to those whom you have connected with.

We recommend you regularly log out of each social network to avoid having your profile assigned to your extension provider.

(e) Additional information regarding the purpose and subject matter of data collection and its processing by the extension provider can be found in the data protection statements of the suppliers mentioned below.

They also provide additional information about your rights, as well as the available settings to protect your privacy.

(f) Extensions vendor addresses and URL for data protection: Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA
