3.                What are cookies?

 

Cookies are data files placed and stored on your computer or mobile device for collection of select use data and are useful as they allow a website to recognize a user's device and history of use.

 

Some types of cookies are only stored on your device as long as your browser is open, so-called session cookies. Other types of cookies are stored on your device for a longer period of time, so-called persistent cookies. For both types of cookies, the cookie is automatically renewed when you return to a cookie enabled website.

Cookies deriving from other parties than us may also be placed on your device; so-called third-party cookies. Such cookies may be cookies performing ordinary functions or analysis tools and embedded comments fields.

We use cookies to analyze how users use our website and to create the most secure and effective website possible for our users. By indicating how and when visitors use the website, cookies aid us in finding out which areas are popular and which areas are not, and how we can improve the user experience. The cookies allow us to improve your experience when using our website and to ensure the site performs as you expect it to. Improvements and updates of the website are based on information supplied by cookies.

 

Further, cookies help us to personalize web content and meet the desires of our visitors. Among other things, we use cookies to allow you to choose log-in preferences and to buy products and services in our online store. We use cookies to safeguard your privacy.

Therefore, the following companies also place session or persistent cookies on www.phaseone.com:

The tracking cookie allows the website to link visitor behavior to the recipient of an email marketing campaign to measure campaign effectiveness. The cookie also stores the general web behavior of a visitor in an anonymized form, which is then linked to a person when they provide personal information via a form.

·     Visual Website Optimizer, a product by Wingify, places a persistent cookie which is stored for one year. The tool helps site owners measure the performance of different versions of web pages. This cookie ensures the visitor always sees the same version of a page and is used to track behavior to measure the performance of different page versions.
