Coolwave Cookie Policy

 

At Coolwave we respect the privacy of all visitors to our websites and users of our applications. This Cookie Policy outlines our policy concerning the use of cookies and similar technologies, (“cookies”) on our websites and applications and explains how we may collect information from you when you visit our websites or use our applications and how we use that information.

 

This information may be about your device, operating system, browser type, IP Address and preferences and is used to gather statistical information on how you browse our websites, analyse trends, administer the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalised web experience.

 

Because we respect your right to privacy, you can choose not to allow some types of cookies. However, blocking some types of cookies may impact your experience of the website and the services we are able to offer. Please see ‘Your Cookie Preferences’ below for more information about how to do this.

 

We use HubSpot & Google Analytics to analyse use of our websites and emails we send to you. To do this we use Cookies and Web Beacons.

 

 

What are Cookies and Web Beacons and how do they work?

 

Cookies are small text files, containing a unique identification number, that are stored on your device when you visit any website. They allow us and the third parties we use to remember you and how you’ve used the site. Cookies are used in order to make websites work more efficiently and provide information. They can give you a more personalised web experience by identifying you when you return to a website and show if you have visited a site previously and what pages you visited. Our cookies and any third party cookies do not extract any information off your device. They do not hold or track your personal information or provide us with any way to contact you.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Coolwave) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies".  Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your devices both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

 

Web beacons are small image files that may be placed on web pages and within web-based emails that we send. They accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page on the site and the number of times those pages are displayed. We may also use web beacons to let us know how many people opened a web-based email. They are also used to facilitate the transfer of data from our website to the Google Analytics website.

 

Information is generally collected in aggregate form and we will not associate any information gathered from cookies on our websites or applications with any personally identifying information from any other source.  

 

Why do we use Cookies?

 

Cookies are an important part of the internet and make using devices and accessing online information much smoother. The cookies we collect are used for different reasons, primarily to help us provide you with a positive experience when you visit our websites or use our applications, help improve our content and advertising, and to personalise your visit. We also use the information to gather trends and analysis to develop, improve and personalise our website.

We use the following cookies:

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies do not store any directly identifying personal information. These cookies are essential for some web pages to function or to enable you to move around a website and use its features. They may, keep you logged in during your visit or while using an application, or store your consent preferences. For this reason, they are set to ‘always active’. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the website may not then work. Please see ‘Your Cookie Preferences’ below for more information about how to do this.
