Cookie statement

Cookies are small text files stored on your device (computer, tablet, or mobile phone) via your browser primarily to enhance the convenience of using the site, enable certain functions, and make visiting our website attractive. They allow us to remember your actions and preferences (such as language, font size and other display preferences), so you don’t have to keep re-entering them when you return to our website or browse from one page to another.

Personal data may be collected using cookies; such information will only be processed per this Cookie Statement and our Privacy Policy.

How do we use cookies?

Oktopaz uses cookies to provide website functionality and to help us analyse how users use the site. The type of personal data collected due to a cookie is specific to your device and activity. It may include the Internet Protocol (IP) address, the date and time you access our website, what parts of the website you visited and your personal preferences.

Cookies can be placed directly by our website or by third parties with whom we cooperate. We will ask for your consent for some cookies before we put them. For ease, we group the cookies we use into three distinct categories listed below.

  • Functional cookies

This category of cookies includes essential cookies to enable you to move around the website and use its features. It also encompasses cookies to allow the website to provide enhanced functionality, such as remembering choices you make like language, geography, etc. These cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. Third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages can set these cookies. We don’t have to ask your permission to place these cookies.

  • Analytics cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from the website. These cookies also help us test various parts of the website and improve your browsing experience. The analytics cookies that we use include Google Analytics, provided by Google, Inc. Google will use this information solely to enable Oktopaz to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide Oktopaz with technical assistance. Oktopaz has disabled Google’s ability to use such information for its purposes or to provide such information to third parties, except to the extent required by law. We don’t have to ask your permission to place these Google Analytics cookies. For other analytics cookies, we do ask for your consent.

  • Marketing cookies

We use these cookies to deliver targeting efforts and content relevant to you and your interests. These help us measure the effectiveness of a campaign. Networks with the website operator’s permission usually place them.

The information collected by the Google Analytics cookie tells us about your use of the website. Google will transmit and store the data on servers in the United States. The data transferred will include your IP address from which the last three digits have been removed to protect your privacy.

Google will use this information solely to enable Oktopaz to evaluate your website use, compile reports on website activity and provide Oktopaz with technical assistance.
