What are Cookies?
- Your browser settings, such as the type of browser you use and what plug-ins you have installed. This keeps us from bothering you every time you enter the website, for example, in order to make sure that you have the necessary software to display any videos or graphics we place on our websites. This also allows us to know how many people are using certain types of software, so that we can adjust our websites to provide the best browsing experience for every visitor.
- Your language and region choice. This means that if you have once chosen English as your preferred language this is the default language that will be used when you revisit our website.
- Overall visitor movement on and usage of our websites. We do not collect personal data as part of this. We collect statistical data (for example, how many visits a certain page has had each day) so we can optimise our websites. For returning visitors, it will also remember some cached page content which will allow your browser to “pre-load” some content – making your browsing experience much faster.
The only tracking cookies that we use on our websites are analytical, using Google Analytics to capture general usage data on our web pages. This doesn’t capture or store any personal information about you. Ecometrica also uses social sharing buttons for Facebook and Twitter, which allows you to “like” or “tweet” links to articles or pages on our website that you want to share with your friends and followers. Facebook and Twitter may send third party cookies to your device. Ecometrica is not responsible for any cookies these sites use and you should refer to the individual privacy policies of such sites. However, the placement of these third party cookies does not provide Ecometrica with any of your personal or social networking information.
Ecometrica Web Forms: Your Privacy
When you fill out a web form on Ecometrica.com, your information is only stored if your enquiry is regarding either a sales or partnership enquiry with Ecometrica. This is so that we can maintain a two-way dialogue with you throughout the contractual process and makes it easier for us to contact you in the future. Also, if you submit a speculative application on our Careers page, this information will also be stored so that we can contact you in the future should a position become available at Ecometrica. Note that this is not done automatically: your information is sent to us via the website, but the process of storing your information is always done manually to ensure that we don’t store your details in error. If you’re unsure at all about how your data is being stored, you are welcome to email us directly and we will be happy to reassure you: email@example.com.
Any other enquiries submitted through Ecometrica.com web forms (questions, comments, requests and so on) will not result in your information being stored for security purposes, unless you specifically ask that we do so.
