⦁ FUNCTIONAL COOKIES
Functional cookies are essential and help you navigate the Site. They enhance the user friendliness of the Site for visitors. These cookies make sure that you only have to pass the age-gate once and that your basket is saved during all the steps of your checkout process. These cookies also help to support Site security and basic functionality.
⦁ ANALYTICS COOKIES
Analytics cookies help us to understand the behaviour of our visitors and the usage of the Site in an aggregated manner. For instance, we can use these cookies to gain insight into how our visitors use our Site. This means we can find out what works and what doesn’t, it allows us to continuously improve the Site, and measure how effective our advertising and communication is.
⦁ ADVERTISING COOKIES
Advertising cookies will remember your product and page preferences and in general that you visited the Site. We strive to provide you with advertisements relevant to you and your interests on other online platforms, where available on the basis of your visits and surfing behaviour on our Site and other third party websites. Based on these interests, we develop a segmented profile and then adapt the content and the advertisements on our Site for various groups of customers. Third parties that set cookies via our website may also try to find out what your interests are in this way, and this information may also be used to present you with content or advertisements that appear more likely to be of interest to you on other, non-Cool Hog websites. In this case, the information about your current website visit may be combined with information from previous visits to websites other than ours. These advertising cookies are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertisements.
Even if no advertising cookies are used, please note that you will be provided with advertisements on our Site; however, these advertisements will not be tailored to your interests. These advertisements can, for instance, be modified according to the content of the website. You can compare this type of content-related Internet advertisements with advertising on television. If, say, you are watching a cookery programme on TV, you will often see an advertisement about cooking products during the advert breaks while this programme is on.
⦁ Sharing of Cookie data
Please be aware that Cool Hog currently does not make use of a technical solution that would enable us to respond to your browser’s ‘Do Not Track’ signals. Besides using the ‘Cookie Settings/Set Preferences’ hyperlink on our Site, you can manage your cookie settings in your browser settings at any time. Please be aware that your browser settings may not offer you the same ease of use as the Cookie Settings/Set Preferences on our Site. If you simply disable all cookies in your browser settings, you may find that certain sections or features of our Site will not work, because your browser may prevent us from setting functionally required cookies. Therefore, it is recommended to use the Cookie Settings on our website instead of disabling all cookies via your web browser.
