2.0 WHAT ARE COOKIES & HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
Cookies are small text files that can be used by websites to make a user's experience more efficient. There are two types of cookies: “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie is stored by the web browser and remains valid until the set expiry date or unless deleted by the user. Session cookies expire at the end of the session or when the web browser is closed.
3.0 WHICH COOKIES DO YOU USE?
Legally we can store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other types of cookies we need your permission.
This site uses different types of cookies. Some cookies are placed by third party services that appear on our pages.
Your consent applies to the following domains: https://www.pneumads.com
This site splits cookies into four categories:
Necessary - Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
Preferences - Preference cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, like your preferred language or the region that you are in.
Statistics - Statistic cookies help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
Marketing - Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers. At Pneuma we monitor and utilise these cookies in house to help deliver relevant content to you on Linkedin, Facebook and through banner ads.
4.0 WHICH THIRD PARTY COOKIES DO YOU USE?
WIX: Our website was built using and is hosted by Wix. All Wix sites come with cookies to help analyse traffic and perform basic functions. Wix complies with the General Data Protection Regulation ensuring the highest levels of data security. They do not track or store unnecessary information.
SITE BOOSTER: We use Site Booster to aid us with our SEO. Site Booster’s cookie on our website tracks statistical information.
We use Analytics to plot and create reports about trends in our web traffic. However we do not use analytics to garner personally identifiable information about individual web users. For example while we may monitor that one hundred people visited our website from the UK, we cannot and do not identify who those people are or store any of their personal information.
The Google Analytics cookie we deploy utilises IP anonymization. This means that your IP address is registered anonymously both on our server and on Google’s server. This feature sets the last octet of IPv4 user IP addresses and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses to zeros in memory shortly after being sent to the Analytics Collection Network. The full IP address is never written to disk in this case. Essentially while some websites utilising analytics may be able to access or store IP addresses www.pneumads.com does not utilise any cookies that provide this function. Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop Google Analytics from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.
You can learn more about the cookies Google Analytics uses on third party websites (like ours) here: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage
LINKEDIN: We use Linkedin cookies to better access and optimise your experience with us.
