1. Cookie and tag definitions
A cookie is a small text or data file stored on a User’s device (computer, smartphone, tablet, video game console, smart television, smart vehicle or virtual assistant etc.) when visiting a website or viewing an ad.
The information file, stored on the device, may be consulted and/or transmitted electronically to the User’s browser.
BetaSeries may use its own cookies or use third-party cookies, for the following main purposes:
- Logging in to accounts,
- Remembering preferences and settings,
- Securing accounts and services.
Only the issuer of a cookie may read or modify the data contained in it.
These are referred to as essential or technical cookies.
Session cookies are automatically deleted each time the browser is closed. However, persistent cookies remain on hardware after the browser has been closed, until they expire or are deleted using the browser’s features.
A web beacon or pixel tag (“tag”) is a small piece of code that may be embedded in a website or email. BetaSeries uses tags and cookies to track User interactions with its web pages and emails. BetaSeries may add tags via a specialist web analytics partner that may be located (and therefore store the corresponding information, including the User IP address) in a foreign country.
Tags are embedded in the online ads directing users to the website and in the various pages of the website.
BetaSeries uses that technology to assess User responses to the website and the effectiveness of its actions (for example, number of times a page is opened and information viewed) and the use of the website by Users.
The external provider may collect information about users of the website and other websites through tags, compile reports on website activity for BetaSeries and provide other services relating to the use of the website and the Internet.
