What is a cookie?
Cookies are now used on nearly all websites, and in many cases they are necessary for providing a specific service on the website.
A cookie is a small text file which is stored on the user’s IT device (PC, tablet, smartphone, or similar), so that the device can be recognised. Among other things, cookies are used to generate statistics on the users’ use of the website and for optimising its content. A cookie is a passive file, which means it is not able to collect information from the user’s computer or spread computer viruses or other malware. Some cookies are placed by companies (so-called third parties) other than the one in the address line (the URL) of the browser. These may relate to ordinary content, but also, for example, analytical tools or embedded comment fields. This means that cookies from companies other than the website owner are stored.
Some cookies are only stored on the user’s IT device while the user has their browser open (session cookies). Other cookies are stored for a longer period of time (persistent cookies). When the user revisits a website, session cookies will be reset, while persistent cookies will typically be renewed.
Cookies at gb.seeland.com
We use the following types of cookies at gb.seeland.com:
These cookies are required in order for the website to supply a service that the end user has explicitly requested. These may include, for example, cookies used for making the shopping basket facility work.
• The content of the website is stored and administered through the DynamicWeb platform. This sets cookies which are used to recognise you when you move around the webpage, and to remember what you have placed in your basket.
These cookies are used to optimise the user experience on the website. This includes, for example, preferences such as language or options to simplify navigation. No personally identifiable data is collected through this type of cookie.
Operational and optimisation cookies
These cookies are used for operation of the website. They may include counting the number of visitors or other information for use in analyses. To a limited extent, these cookies can collect data that can be attributed to an individual user.
• We use Google Analytics to analyse how users use the website. The data that the cookie collects about your use (traffic data, including your IP address) are sent to and stored on Goggle’s servers in the USA. You can opt out of cookies from Google Analytics here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Marketing - anonymous tracking across websites
These cookies are used to track users’ visits across several websites. They can be used to build up profiles showing the searches each user has made or the pages they have visited. They can store data that identifies the individual user or that contains specific information about the user. Anonymous data can be shared with third parties.
You have the option to share the contents of the website on social media. When you do this, we will set cookies that collect information about which pages you share and which social media you share them on.
Cookies from Facebook are used to show a “like” button and information about which of your Facebook friends have clicked “like”. Facebook also provides access to a statistical tool (Facebook Insights) showing information about the use of Facebook.
Cookies from Facebook are also used to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns, including delivering and measuring adverts across different browsers and devices.
How to remove/avoid cookies
You can always reject cookies on your computer by changing your browser settings. How you access the settings depends on the browser you are using. But you should note that, if you do this, there are many functions and services you won’t be able to use because they depend on the website being able to remember the choices you make.
