This Cookies Policy (“Policy”) describes the different types of cookies and similar technologies that are used on the site where this policy appears (“Website”). We may change this Policy at any time. Any changes in this Policy will become effective when we make the revised Policy available on or through the Website.
Web Cookies are small pieces of data stored by your browser on your computer or mobile device. They are used to improve the service on the Website. The information stored in the cookies can, for example, be used to manage your shopping cart, to remember your username and preferences you have selected, or to recognise you when you visit the Website again.
Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. Nonetheless, if you wish, you can block or delete cookies (for details see section C). However, if you do so, some areas of the Website may no longer function properly.
Cookies may be (i) first party cookies, served directly by us to your device, or (ii) third party cookies, served by a third party on our behalf. Cookies placed by a different party than Tigernu, are called third party cookies. These cookies may “follow” you through various websites and for a longer period of time. The third parties placing these cookies may be suppliers who partner with us to deliver our Website, companies that participate with us in affiliate marketing programs and other third parties. For example, social media cookies (such as YouTube, Facebook or Twitter cookies) that collect information about social media usage. We use social media cookies to integrate social media sharing tools into our Website and to measure the effectiveness of these sharing tools. We use third party cookies to help us analyse our websites and their use, and to enable tailored advertising.
a) Essential Cookies - Essential cookies enable you to navigate the Website and to use its services and features. Without these absolute necessary cookies, the Website will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like it to and we may not be able to provide the website or certain services or features.
Some examples of essential cookies:
b) Preference Cookies - Preference cookies collect information about your choices and preferences, and allow us to remember language or other local settings and customise the Website accordingly. These cookies allow us to provide a more personalised experience.
c) Analytics Cookies – Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the Website and enable us to improve the way it works. Analytics cookies such as used by Hotjar show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the Website, help us record any difficulties you have with the Website, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Website, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information in aggregate form to analyse Website traffic and perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behaviour of our visitors by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Website, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information.
Examples of Analytics Cookies:
d) Targeting and advertising Cookies or similar technologies - These are mainly used to deliver adverts more relevant to your personal interests. This is called “retargeting”. This means cookies, pixels or plugins that are usually placed by carefully selected advertising networks (e.g., banner advertising) based on your browsing behaviour on the Website may be offered to you when you visit other websites participating in the advertising network.
Examples of Targeting and advertising cookies and similar technologies:
a) Adobe Flash:
The Website may offer video content that can only be viewed using Adobe Flash Player. Adobe uses Flash cookies to help improve your experience as a user. Please note that, unlike conventional cookies, Flash cookies can only be deactivated or deleted using the Adobe Flash Player settings, not in the browser settings. Please bear in mind though, that if you disable Flash cookies, you will be unable to access certain types of content on the Website.
b) Pixel tags:
Pixel tags (also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) are used to, among other things, track the actions of users of the Website, measure the success of our marketing campaigns, and compile statistics about usage of the Website and response rates. As mentioned above we use Facebook plugins and the Facebook pixel.
c) Browser or Device information:
Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Mac), screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, Internet browser type and version, and the name and version of the Website you are using. We use this information to ensure that the Website functions properly.
d) Physical Location:
We collect the physical location of your device by, for example, using satellite, cell phone tower, or WiFi signals. We use your device’s physical location to provide you with personalised location-based services and content. We also share your device’s physical location, combined with information about what advertisements you viewed and other information we collect, with our marketing partners to enable them to provide you with more personalised content and to study the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. In some instances, you can allow or deny such uses and sharing of your device’s location, but if you do, we and our marketing partners may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalised services and content.
e) Device Fingerprinting:
To be able to offer you content that we believe may interest you based on your activity on the Website, and for fraud prevention and authentication purposes, we may also use other technologies that are similar to cookies. For example, we may gather device attributes and combine information collected by most browsers or automatically through your device to create a unique ID that identifies your browser or device to us with reasonable certainty. In this context we may collect, use, and combine the following information:
