Cookies policy and local storage 

The use of the ClowID Services with cookies and local storage activated, necessarily implies acceptance of their use in accordance with this policy. In case you don’t want to accept it, it is possible to change the settings of  the browser to prevent its use.

Cookies and local storage are part of the technology necessary for the operation of a website and are not inherently harmful, but it is important that you know the implications for your privacy.

This policy is part of our privacy policy and includes the following:

  • What are cookies?
  • What are cookies used for?
  • What is local storage?
  • What are third party cookies?
  • Use of browsers with private browsing mode
  • How to prevent the use of cookies and how to delete cookies?

 

What are cookies?

“Cookies” are small temporary files that are created on the user’s device (computer, telephone, tablet, etc.) when they visit a website, that allows the web site itself to store information, for example to save usage preferences or to recognize you on subsequent visits.

When a website creates a cookie on the user’s device, the following is stored:

  • The address / domain of the web that created the cookie
  • The duration of the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years
  • The content of the cookie.

The user can, at any time, configure their navigation program to prevent (block) the use of cookies by certain websites, as well as delete previously stored cookies.

What are cookies used for?

  • Essential technical cookies. They are used to manage the flow of navigation within the web or to keep the user connected. When disabling them, it is possible that some section of the web does not work correctly.
  • Personalised cookies. Necessary to remember certain user preferences.
  • Analytical cookies. They help us and third parties to collect information about the source of the users and their browsing preferences on the web, in order to carry out a statistical analysis in order to improve the structure and content.
  • Advertising cookies. Use to manage the ads that are shown on the web, and to decide the content or frequency of the ads.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies. They help to collect user browsing habits to create a profile of their interests and to show ads tailored to them.
  • Cookies for social sharing. They are necessary to identify the user in their social networks and thus allow them to share content.

 

What is local storage?

By local storage we understand any file created by the web on your navigation device. Cookies are a type of local storage, but there are others, for example:

  • The local storage of the browser. Some websites use local storages called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage” to store information; “SessionStorage” is automatically deleted when the browser program is closed; in order to delete the “localStorage” the user must delete the browsing history.
  • Flash local storage (“Flash Local Shared Objects”). Flash is a browser plug-in that allows you to incorporate interactive and multimedia elements on a website. Flash also allows the visited website to store files on the user’s device.
  • Silverlight local storage (“Isolated Objects”). Silverlight is a browser plug-in that allows you to incorporate interactive and multimedia elements on a website. Silverlight also allows the visited website to store files on the user’s device.
  • The web beacon is a tracking technique that consists on inserting on the web or on an email an image hosted on an Internet server, so that when the browser or email program connects to said server to download and view the image, access is recorded. Sometimes these images are very small or transparent so that the user is not aware of their existence.

 

What are third party cookies?

 Many websites incorporate functions or features provided by third parties, such as:

  • Analytics of access and use of the pages.
  • Interactive maps.
  • Videos and other multimedia elements.
  • Social buttons.
  • Advertising.

The provider of a function or feature may make use of cookies and other local storage technologies based on its own criteria and purposes. Some providers use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about the user’s browsing habits in order to show advertising tailored to their interests.
