IP ADDRESSES AND COOKIES

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.

INFORMATION ABOUT COOKIES

1 What are cookies?

We use cookies to improve the user experience of our website. We would therefore like to provide you some information about how and to what extent we use cookies. You do not need to have cookies enabled to visit our website. However, you will not be able to order Degustaboxes if you have cookies disabled.

2 Are cookies dangerous?

Cookies are simply files that contain text or numbers and cannot execute anything on their own. This makes it impossible for cookies to transmit viruses or send e-mails without your knowledge. The cookies we use serve primarily to enhance the functionality of our website and also allow us to continue improving the website. We limit the number of cookies we use and keep their lifespan to a minimum to protect your data while giving you an excellent user experience on our website.

3 What cookies do we use?

The cookies we use on our website serve four different purposes:

a.) Strictly necessary cookies: Some cookies are required to use the website. This type of cookie allows us to identify registered users and to ensure that these users can access secure areas of our website. These cookies must be enabled for users to access all areas of the website and use services like shopping carts and e-billing. On our website “strictly necessary cookies” are entirely session-cookies. They are automatically deleted from your device whenever you close your browser.

b.) Performance Cookies: We use cookies to analyse how users interact with our website and to improve our website's performance. We are always striving to make our website more enjoyable and easier to use. Performance cookies allow us to optimise our site - by using links more efficiently, for instance - and let us identify and fix errors on our site immediately. All this help us give you the smoothest experience possible on our website.

c.) Functionality cookies: We use cookies to remember your settings. Any data you enter, such as your username, is stored and already available on your next visit. These cookies also allow us to give you broader, more personalised features with additional functionality, such as displaying a notification if you are using an outdated browser. The scope of these cookies does not extend beyond our website, which means they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

d.) Targeting cookies or advertising cookies: We use cookies to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. These cookies are used to limit the number of times you see an advert and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns, for instance. They are usually placed by advertising networks with our permission. Some of these cookies enable tracking, which means that a user's behaviour on websites from different operators can be analysed. This information can be used to display targeted adverts ("targeting"), even on websites with different operators ("re-targeting"). We want to make your experience on our website more relevant by showing you personalised adverts tailored to your interests.

3 What data do cookies store?

The cookies Degustabox uses do not store any personal data. We always anonymise or pseudonymise the data of our users. This means the data are altered so that it becomes extremely difficult or impossible to link them back to an individual person. Additionally, we will never combine the data stored in cookies with other personal data.
