Regulatory Update

We have updated this policy to reflect the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) Guidelines 5/2020  on obtaining consent to cookies under the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679), and the European Court of Justice’s ruling in case C-673/17, Planet49. We are of legislative changes to the consent regime proposed by the draft EU ePrivacy Regulation repealing Directive 2002/58/EC (PECR), and will review this policy subject to any changes the latter introduces.

This Cookies Policy has also been updated to reflect UK data protection legislation from 1 January 2021, and the law of placing cookies on subscribers or users’ “terminal equipment” as it applies as a result of the retained UK law version of EU GDPR, the UK Data Protection Act 2018 and the UK Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which a provider of an online service, such as a website operator or an online advertising network agency, can implant on a user’s computer, tablet, smartphone, wearable technology or other smart device when the user visits a website, thereby creating a unique ID.

They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advert as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. The cookies are usually placed by third party advertising networks. They remember the websites you visit and that information is shared with other parties such as advertisers.

In addition, we or third-party data or ad networks we work with may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about our services, or other information we or they have collected. Web beacons are tiny graphic objects that are embedded in a web page or email and are usually invisible to the user but allow checking that a user has viewed the page or email. Web beacons may be used within the appattic.com or across our other services to track email open rates, web page visits or form submissions. In some cases, we tie the information gathered by Web Beacons to our users’ personal data. For example, we may use web beacons to let us know which of our marketing emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.

We may use local objects such as Flash Cookies or HTML5, to store content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our website or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity may also use Flash Cookies or HTML5 to collect and store information. Various browsers offer their own management tools for removing Flash Cookies and HTML5.

4. Session and Persistent Cookie

We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. They enable website operators including Huarizo to link the actions of a user during a single browser session to allow them to use the website most efficiently. For example, the Huarizo website uses session cookies to enable it to remember that a user has placed items in their online shopping basket.

A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interest of our users over a longer time period to enhance the experience on our site. Persistent cookies enable a website to “recognize” a user on their return, to remember a user’s preferences and to tailor services to them. They may also be used to track a user’s browsing activity across different websites and to build up a detailed profile of their browsing behavior for use in targeted forms of online behavioral advertising. For this reason, persistent cookies are sometimes referred to as “tracking cookies.”

5. First-Party and Third-Party Cookies

Session and persistent cookies can be either first or third-party cookies. Whether a cookie is “first” or third “party” refers to the website or the domain placing the cookies. First-party cookies are placed by the website itself when a user visits that site. This means assigning a unique identity to the user by setting the cookie to either the user’s browser and/or their hard drive with a view to tracking the user’s journey on the website.

First-party cookies are commonly used by website operators for session management, personalization and recognition purposes. They allow website operators to build profiles of individual users, their online behaviors and their interests. This allows website operators, for example, to make specific recommendations to a user on the goods and services they may be interested in based on their previous browsing habits. Users can block first-party cookies by adjusting their browser settings. However, on some cases this may lead to a loss of functionality on the website visited.

Third-party cookies are cookies planted by parties, other than the website operator (as defined by the URL placed in the address bar of the browser). It usually happens when the website incorporates images, social media plugins or advertising from other sites, as these can set cookies as well. It also includes cookies set by third-party online advertising network (“adtech”) providers. This allows website operators to rent out website space for the purposes of behavioral advertising as part of a monetization strategy. As with first-party cookies, users are able to block third-party cookies through their browser settings.

6. How We Use Session and Persistent Cookies
