What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are automatically placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit our website. They are stored by your internet browser. Cookies contain basic information about your internet use. Your browser sends these cookies back to our website every time you revisit it, so it can recognize your computer or mobile device and personalize and improve your browsing experience.
What type of cookies do we use?
The cookies we use fall into 3 categories. These categories are described below:
Essential and functional cookies:
Essential cookies are necessary to help you access and move around our site and use all its features. We also use functional cookies, for example, to remember your language preferences to save you the trouble of having to change these every time you enter our website. Without these cookies, our website would not work properly and you would not be able to use certain important features.
To place these cookies, we use Google Analytics. We have set our Google Analytics to protect your privacy to the maximum extent. For example, we have concluded a data processing agreement with Google to protect your data. We have also made sure that the last octet of your IP-address is invisible and have turned off the setting which allows sharing data with Google. We are also not using any other Google Analytics related cookie services which are offered by Google.
Advertising, marketing and social media cookies:
We only place advertising, marketing and social media cookies if you have given us your permission to do this.
Advertisement and marketing cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make our content and advertising as relevant to you and your interests as possible. These cookies are also used to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns by tracking the number of clicks. The cookies are usually placed by third party advertising networks. They remember the websites you visit and use this information to give you access to interesting and exciting content on our website and to show you more personalized adverts when you visit other websites. These cookies also help improve your browsing experience, for example by helping to prevent the same advertisement from continuously reappearing to you.
Managing your cookie settings and deleting cookies
As explained above, we only place advertising and targeting cookies (including tracking cookies) if you have given us your consent for doing this. If you have given us your consent but would like the cookies that we have placed to be removed, you can do this by deleting them via your browser. Search for “cookies” under your web browser’s “Help menu” or visit www.allaboutcookies.org for more information on how to do this.
You can also enable or disable (types of) cookies via your browsing settings. For example, you can have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, delete individual cookies or delete all cookies. Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of advertising cookies. See the Digital Advertising Alliance Consumer Choice and Your Online Choices pages for useful information on how to do this.
Please note that, if you choose to delete PositiveBlockchain cookies, your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be degraded or restricted.
