1. About this Policy
2. What are cookies ?
2.1 Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a Website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to operate websites, to work more efficiently, or to ensure the transmission of information.
2.2 Cookies have many functions, such as enabling you to navigate efficiently between pages, remembering your preferences and generally improving the user experience. Cookies can also help ensure that the advertisements you view online are more relevant to you and your interests.
2.3 Cookies set by the site owner (in this case Smovin) are known as « internal cookies ». Cookies deposited by parties other than the Site Owner are referred to as « third party cookies ». Third party cookies enable third party applications or features on or via the Website (e.g. such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that deposit these third party cookies may recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
3. How long do cookies last?
Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for varying periods of time. Some cookies are « session cookies », which means that they only exist when your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser or exit the application. Other cookies are « persistent cookies », which means that they survive after your browser or application is closed and can be used by websites or applications to recognize your computer when you re-open your browser or application.
4.1 When you visit our Website, we may set the following cookies:
Google Analytics: records the number of visits of each visitor, the start and end time of the visit and the website from which the visitor came. These are analysis cookies
LinkedIn: records which site the visitor comes from. These are social network cookies
Facebook: records which site the visitor comes from. These are social network cookies
5. What about other tracking technologies such as web beacons?
5.1 Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may from time to time use other similar technologies, such as web beacons (sometimes referred to as « web beacons » or « clear gifs »). These are small graphic files that contain a unique identifier that allows us to recognize when someone has visited our website or opened an e-mail that we have sent to them. This enables us, for example, to monitor user traffic patterns from one page of our Website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to find out if you come to our Website from a third party online website advertisement, to improve the performance of our Website and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many cases, these technologies depend on cookies to function properly. Therefore, refusing cookies will interfere with their operation.
6. What about targeted advertising?
6.1 Third parties may place cookies on your computer or mobile device to offer advertising via our Website. These companies may use information about your visits to this Website and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. They may also use technology to measure the effectiveness of the advertisements. This may be accomplished by using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this Website and other websites and to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. The information collected as part of this process does not allow us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying information unless you choose to provide it.
