Thank you for choosing to visit us. We hope your experience on the site is as good as possible, which is why we have drawn up this Cookies Policy to make it as transparent as we can.
What is a cookie?
Cookies are files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded onto the user’s device when visiting the website. Their main aim is to recognise the user each time they enter www.vissum.com, as well as enabling us to make our website better and more user-friendly.
Cookies are crucial for the Internet’s smooth running and cause no damage to the user’s system or device. When enabled under the browser settings, cookies help us to identify and resolve any possible problems with the way www.vissum.com works.
Types of cookies
There are different types of cookies. All of them work in much the same way, but for slight differences:
a) Session cookies. Session cookies only work for as long as your session lasts and are removed when you shut your browser. Their main function is to identify the type of device and enhance the website’s security or basic running. They do not contain personal information with which to identify the user.
b) Persistent cookies: These cookies are stored in the hard drive on your device, allowing our website to read them every time you visit www.vissum.com. They have a specific expiry date after which the cookie will no longer work. We use them to identify your actions and preferences, analyse visits and better understand how users reach our website, helping us to improve our services.
c) Functionality cookies: These cookies enable www.vissum.com to remember the decisions users make, such as their user ID. The information gathered by these cookies is anonymous (i.e. it does not contain your name, address or other data).
d) Third-party cookies. Third-party cookies are installed by a website that is not the one you are visiting. For instance, they are used by social networks (such as Facebook) or external content plugins (such as Google Maps). Advertising companies may use these files to track your visits on each site where they advertise.
e) Analytical cookies: The aim of these cookies is to regularly analyse the website and guarantee the best possible running and service for users. They will gather data about your activity.
Accessing www.vissum.com means that you expressly agree to us using these cookies on your devices. If you disable cookies, you may find that browsing on www.vissum.com is not optimal or that certain utilities offered on www.vissum.com are not working properly.
a) Proprietary cookies
In order to recognise you and provide you with the best possible service, our website uses proprietary cookies (small text files stored on your browser). The advantage of accepting our cookies is that they save time. They can also be used to recognise you when you make two consecutive visits in order to adapt the content shown to you, gather information on the date and time of your last visit, measure certain traffic parameters within the website and estimate the number of visits we receive. This allows us to target and adjust our services and promotions so they are as effective as possible.
Cookies cannot connect with your telephone number, email address or any other means of contact. Cookies cannot extract information from your hard drive or steal your personal data.
