3) WHAT IS A COOKIE? WHICH ARE THE TYPES OF COOKIES?

A cookie is a small text-based file that is placed on your computer, mobile phone or similar device, with information about your navigation on the website. There are temporary and permanent cookies. Temporary cookies, also known as session cookies, are saved on your device until you close the browser. Permanent cookies have an expiration date and when this date has passed, the cookie is deleted when you return to the website that created it.

Cookies can be “first-party cookies” or “third-party cookies”. First-party cookies are cookies that are placed on the website by the Company. Third-party cookies are cookies that are placed on the website by another party than the Company.

The following types of cookies are used on E-Tech websites:

  • Necessary cookies
    These are cookies that are strictly necessary for the operation of a website. Without these cookies, this website won’t work properly. Accordingly, we are not asking you for your specific consent for those cookies. For all other cookies your informed consent is required.
  • Session cookies
    Session cookies are temporary cookie files which are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your browser and go back to the site that created that cookie, the website will treat you as a new visitor.
  • Functional/Persistent Cookies
    These are cookies, which are set up to improve the functionality of the website. For example, cookies that remember the content you previously viewed on this website or the email address and password you provided when registering during an earlier visit to this website. Using Functional cookies, therefore, may allow us to serve you content tailored to your interests and save you the time of having to re-register or re-enter information when you re-visit this website or try to access certain member-only sections.
  • Cookies that send information to other companies
    These are cookies that are set on E-Tech Components UK Ltd’s website by affiliated companies (e.g. Google, Linkedin or other). They may use the data collected from these cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to this Website. For example, if you use a social widget (e.g. the Facebook icon) on the Website, it will record your “share” or “like”. Facebook (as the company setting the cookie) will collect the data. This is known as a “Third Party’’ cookie.
  • Demographics and Interest Reporting
    Some of our websites use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to improve advertising. Some common applications are to target advertising based on what is relevant to a user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen. This is done using something called the DoubleClick cookie. If you don’t want your information collected in this way, you can:

– use Google’s Ad Settings to opt out of Display Advertising; or
– use Google’s Browser add-on to opt out of Google Analytics

DoubleClick cookies contain no personally identifiable information. Sometimes the DoubleClick cookie will contain an additional identifier that is similar in appearance to the cookie ID, and is used to identify an ad campaign to which a user was exposed previously.

We will not use any information reported by Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to identify any individual user of our site. Find out more about Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting.
If you have provided your consent for the cookies on E-Tech Components UK Ltd’s website or any affiliated company (e.g. Google, Linkedin or other), the Company will save data for the purposes mentioned above. The legal ground for the processing is your consent. If you do not want sites to store cookies on your PC, you can always withdraw your consent and block cookies used by us or our affiliated companies from your browser’s settings. However, blocking cookies might prevent some pages from displaying correctly, or you might get a message from a site letting you know that you need to allow cookies to view that site.
