Gaastra Mode B.V. General Website Cookie Statement (EUROPE)
Like many companies, Gaastra uses “cookies” and “web beacons” (also known as internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs) and other device identifying technologies ("cookies") on our website.
What are cookies?
We use the term 'cookies' to refer to all technologies which store and access information on the device that you use to access our websites, such as your computer, tablet or mobile phone. For example, we use http cookies, which are small data files (typically made up of numbers and letters) that are downloaded when you access our Services and allow us to recognise your device.
There are different types of cookies, for example:
Cookies served directly by Gaastra (referred to as 'first party cookies') and cookies served on our behalf, for example by advertisers and data analytics companies (referred to as 'third party cookies');
Cookies which endure for different periods of time, including those that only last as long as your browser is open (referred to as 'session cookies'). These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies (referred to as 'permanent cookies') are cookies that survive after your browser is closed. For example, they recognise your device when you open your browser and browse the internet again.
Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer's hard drive when you visit certain websites. Web beacons allow us to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party. Gaastra uses the information collected from these technologies to compile reports and help us improve the website. Gaastra also uses this information to determine the general physical location of the device and understand from what regions of the world our website visitors come from. We may use this information to enhance Gaastra's website.
For details on our processing of your personal data, please see our [Privacy Statement].
Where required by law, we will obtain your prior consent before a cookie is placed. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us at the address further below. You can read more about the types of cookies we use, why we use them and how you can exercise your cookies choices below.
