CTEK Cookies Policy

 

1.         Use of cookies and the purpose of this policy

 

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide web services and functionalities for the users. According to applicable legal regulations, cookies may be stored or accessed on your equipment only based on your consent, except for cookies that are necessary in order to provide the services on this website (the "Website"). The purpose of this Cookies Policy is to provide you with the necessary information regarding CTEK's use of cookies and the storage of such cookies on your device when you access CTEK's Website to enable you to make a choice whether you wish to enable cookies to be placed on your device.

 

What kind of cookies are there?

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. The purpose of use of the various cookies is outlined below in this Cookies Policy.

 

What are Cookies used for?

CTEK generally divides its Cookies into the following three categories (see the tables below for further details on the Cookies used on our Website):

 

  • Strictly necessary Cookies: CTEK uses cookies which are strictly necessary for the Website to function properly. The Cookies make the Website usable by enabling basic functions such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the Website. The Website cannot function properly without necessary cookies, and you will not be able to use all the functions on the Website if you choose to reject or deactivate any strictly necessary cookie. Cookies considered strictly necessary are listed in the table of first party cookies below.

 

  • Performance/analysis/statistics Cookies: CTEK uses so-called performance cookies, such as Google Analytics, to help us understand how Website visitors interact by collecting and reporting information anonymously, such as which pages are most frequently visited and any errors that occur. The purpose of this is to evaluate and improve the performance of the Website.

 

  • Marketing/Advertising Cookies: CTEK uses marketing/advertising cookies to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for our partnered companies, such as publishers and third party advertisers such as YouTube, and Instagram. The information collected on the Website may be combined with information which has been collected about you from other websites that you have visited.
