1What are cookies?
Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular user and website, and can be accessed either by the website server or the user’s computer. This allows the server to deliver a website tailored to a particular user, or the website itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next (Source:
www.whatarecookies.com).

Cookies can have different characteristics:

  • First party cookies are cookies set by the website you’re visiting. Only that specific website will be able to read them.
  • Third party cookies are cookies set by websites other than the one you are visiting at that time. These cookies are mainly used for tracking and marketing purposes.

Cookies can also have different retention periods:

  • Persistent cookies are cookies which are stored on your computer even after you quit your browser.
  • Session cookies are cookies which are automatically deleted from your computer immediately after you have quit your browser.

2. Which cookies do we use and how do we use these cookies?
If you visit this website, BrandLoyalty can process different cookies. These cookies can be divided based on the purpose for which they are used:

Functional cookies
Functional cookies are necessary for the proper performance of our website and therefore do not require your consent. For example, a functional cookie makes sure the website has a readable layout, your cookie preferences are stored during your entire session and the website is shown in the language you selected. The functional cookies are first party cookies which means that only BrandLoyalty has access to these cookies. In detail:

To limit the processing of personal data by Google, we made sure all analytical cookies collected are anonymised.

Analytical cookies are first party cookies and therefore do not require your consent. In detail:

Please be aware that in addition to our websites, the sites of our clients and any third party websites linked to one of our sites may also collect information from you for various purposes. Although we choose our business partners and clients carefully, BrandLoyalty is not responsible for the privacy practices of websites operated by such third parties.
