For what purpose do we use Cookie Files and other tracking tools?
Evention uses Cookie Files on Websites, uses the Cookie Files provided by the Social Media Providers and by other entities.
Evention is not using any own Cookie Files on the Profiles on Social Media. Evention is responsible solely for information received from the Cookie Files and other tools used by Social Media. Evention declines any and all liability for the cookie files or other technologies of similar nature used by Social Media.
We use the Cookie Files for the following purposes:
Providing the Services
We use Cookie files necessary to provide our Services. These files allow effective and user-friendly use of the Websites and facilitate using the Services or allow using various functionalities, including keeping alive the Website User’s session (after logging in), sparing the Users the need to re-enter their login and password on every sub-page.
For this purpose we also use the server logs. Information about certain User behaviours are being logged in the server layer. This data is used solely for the administration of the Website and to provide the most efficient possible support for the hosting services provided.
The resources browsed are identified with URL addresses. Also, the following may in addition be stored:
- the time of arrival of request,
b. the time the reply is sent,
c. name of the User Station – identification performed using the HTTP protocol,
d. information about the errors that occurred while processing an HTTP transaction,
e. the URL address of the website visited previously by the User (referrer link) – when the Website was visited using a link,
f. information about the browser the User is using,
g. information about the IP address.
The server logs are used solely for the purpose of administration of the Website, and we do not associate them with any specific Users browsing the Websites.
Services’ usage statistics
We are studying the statistics and developing analyses of the usage of our Services, e.g. individual Websites or their sub-pages hits, use of particular functionalities, to count the number of visits, their duration and frequency of use of individual sub-pages or their functionalities. Web page usage statistics and analyses allow us to analyse the Website performance and to determine the growth needs for our Services. Creating statistics helps us to understand how the Users use the Websites, allowing us to improve their structure and contents.
Some information may also help us with our advertising activities, including defining the User’s profile to display customised materials in the advertising networks, in particular Google’s network.
For analysing statistics we use our own Cookie Files and other technologies of similar nature that besides the information about user activities may contain information about the IP address, general location, type of device, and we use the services of other entities – mostly Google Analytics and HubSpot.
We use Cookie Files and other technologies of similar nature to display information about our services that is matched to the individual interests or preferences of our Users. This makes the information we display more useful to their recipients.
For this purpose we use Cookie Files and other technologies of similar nature designed to note your activities for determining your preferences or interests in our Services, individual specialities or other contents contained on our Website or on the Profiles on Social Media.
What Cookie Files do we use?
We use the following Cookie File types:
- Session Cookies are temporary files stored in the Users’ terminal device until the User logs out, leaves the Website or closes the (web browser) software.
- Persistent Cookies are stored in the User’s terminal device for a specific length of time defined in the Cookie File parameters or until they are removed by the User.
You can manage Cookie Files
Most web browsers are initially set up to automatically accept Cookie Files. However, you can change the browser settings so that Cookie Files are blocked – completely or partially, e.g. only third-party cookies or to be informed each and every time a Cookie File is transmitted to your User device. For detailed information about setting the cookie preferences see the settings options of your (web browser) software.
Users can by themselves manage the settings and preferences for using individual web services. This requires changing the web browser preferences settings. Every web browser allows rejecting new Cookie Files and wiping the ones that were saved. Using your browser in incognito mode will disable installing any Cookie Files by Evention to track User activities.
Using some services necessitates the installation of Cookie Files, in particular setting up User accounts and using the Evention Academy on the Terms and Conditions of Evention Academy. The details can be found in the terms and conditions or privacy policies of these services.
