Cookie Policy

I. What are cookies and local data storage (cookies and similar technologies)?

“Cookies” are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you access websites. Domain owner cookies (first-party cookies) are those that are determined by the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies are those cookies that are used by domains other than the website you are visiting.

II. How do we use cookies and similar technologies?

We use cookies and similar technologies on our Website https://viess.eu/ in order to:

– improve the performance of the respective websites and the user experience,

– measure exposure to advertisements and online media by identifying when, how often, on which websites certain online advertisements, media and other content are displayed on your

III. Types of cookies:

The https://viess.eu/ website uses Google Analytics cookies. A detailed description of all types of “cookies” presented by Google Analytics, as well as their storage periods and other specific information, can be viewed at the following link: https://developers.google.com/analytics/

Of these cookies, the https://viess.eu/ site uses the following types:

(1) Essential cookies:

These cookies are strictly necessary for the website to perform its functions. We use these cookies, for example, in the following cases:

* to establish the authenticity and identity of our users when they use our Site so that we can provide our services;

* so that we can fulfill our obligations and maintain the security of our services.

(2) Performance and functionality cookies:

These cookies are not strictly necessary, but allow us to personalize your online experience with our Internet pages. We use these cookies for example:

* to remember your preferences so that you do not have to enter information that you have already provided every time /for example, when you enter your data to access our services/;

(3) Session cookies:

A session cookie, also known as an in-memory or transient cookie, exists only while the user is using the site. Web browsers typically delete session cookies when the user closes their browser. Unlike other types of cookies, session cookies do not have a set expiration date.

We may also use session cookies in the following cases:

* to allow you to move between individual pages of our Site without having to log in again. This practice is known as “single sign-on”;

* to recognize you when you return to our Site to use our services.

(4) Persistent cookies:

Instead of being deleted like session cookies when the browser is closed, persistent cookies are destroyed on a specified date or after a specified period of time. This means that during the lifetime of the cookie, its information will be transmitted to the server every time the user visits the website at https://viess.eu/.

These cookies are also used to keep users always signed in to their accounts, thus avoiding logging in with each visit. However, these cookies are reset if their expiration date occurs or if the user deletes them manually.

(5) Secure Cookies

A secure cookie can only be transmitted over an encrypted connection (e.g. HTTPS). They cannot be transmitted over unencrypted connections (e.g. HTTP). This reduces the chances of the cookie being accessed by third parties. The cookie becomes protected by setting the protection flag to it.

IV. Third party cookies:

We may also use some third-party cookies as part of our services. These cookies are managed by the respective sites and are not controlled by us. Below are the third-party cookies we use, some of which can be turned off using your browser’s general settings. For others, you need to visit the respective sites and follow the instructions provided.

V. Uses of Cookies

(1) Session Management

Cookies were originally intended to provide a way for users to record the items they wanted to purchase while using a website (a virtual “shopping cart”). Now, however, the contents of the user’s “shopping cart” are usually stored in the server’s database, not on the client’s cookie. To keep track of which user is subscribed to which “shopping cart”, the server sends a cookie to the client that contains a unique session identifier (usually a long string of random letters and numbers). Since cookies are sent to the server with each client request, the session ID is sent back to the server each time the user visits a new section of the website. This way, the server has the ability to show the correct shopping cart to the user.

Session cookies also help improve page load times.

(2) Personalization:

Cookies are also used for personalization, in relation to user preferences that they select (for example: language or currency). The server encodes the preferences in the cookie and sends it back to the browser. This way, every time the user enters the website, the server can customize the page according to the user’s preferences.

VI. Changes to our cookie policy:

Any future changes to our Cookie Policy will be posted on this page. All changes are effective immediately, except for existing customers, for whom such changes are effective 30 days after they are posted, unless otherwise noted.

VII. Can website users block cookies?

Yes, you can change your browser’s privacy settings to block all cookies; however, this may seriously affect the functionality of the website and your use of it, as many websites may not function as they should. Your browser may allow you to delete all cookies when you close it. However, this option also deletes persistent cookies that may store your preferences and personalized settings on websites you visit regularly. It is possible to save the cookies you want because your browser may allow you to specify which sites you always allow or which sites you do not allow to use cookies.
