Cookies

When using Profile Group services – including surfing on its websites – data are collected using cookies or similar technologies.

A cookie is a small text file that a browser stores on a user’s computer or mobile device while visiting a website. The use of cookies is the norm and ensures that a website works as user friendly and efficiently as possible.

Each user can control and manage their own cookies in their browser settings and can delete them as soon as they left the website they have just visited. If users decline cookies in their browser they will still be able to view content on the Profile Group websites but the performance of the Profile Group services could be affected.

Types of cookies

Different types of cookies exist. Some of them are necessary for a website to perform. Others are used to optimize and/or simplify its use.

Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable users to navigate on the website and use its features. These cookies do not collect any user information that can be used for marketing purposes.

Functionality cookies allow the Profile Group websites to remember users’ login data and preference settings, to secure the connection between the user and the Profile Group websites, and to enable Live Chat support.

Targeting and third party cookies. Sometimes Profile Group runs advertising campaigns, in particular by invoking third parties who can also place cookies (or similar technologies) to evaluate the success of the campaign, show targeted adverts or limit the number of views per user. For example, links to social networks or videos hosted on YouTube are third parties that may be required to place cookies on the Profile Group websites. If a user refuses the use of this type of cookie – which requires explicit permission – and/or revokes his/her permission, only pages and services that do not require these cookies can be presented, viewed and used. Parts of the Profile Group websites that contain third-party content - and thus third-party cookies - will no longer be accessible. A message will inform the user about this.
