What are cookies?

 

Cookies are text files and numbers that contain small amounts of information that can be sent to the User's device (computer, smartphone, tablet ...) when he visits our Website. Although the cookies are sent to a device, they are not able to access personal information or transmit viruses, they only track the navigation on the Web page. If you revisit our website, these cookies are sent back to our website or to another site that recognizes the cookie, which allows us to recognize your device.

 

What are Web Beacons?

 

Web beacons (also called “clear gifs”) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. Our website and our email messages also contain web beacons that help us deliver cookies, count users who have visited the website, and gather usage and performance data. The analysis gathered helps us improve the effectiveness of content and format of our websites and email communications.

 

How do we use cookies?

 

Cookies are useful because they allow you to navigate more easily between different pages, remember your preferences and we use them to improve your online experience. We currently use session cookies, as well as technical, personalization, analysis and advertising cookies. The latter allow the management of the advertising spaces that appear on the Web based on criteria such as the content or frequency of the ads. arcensus does not share such cookie based information with third parties. The cookie gathers information anonymously, which means that it cannot be linked back to the user. It collects data such as the number of visitors who have used arcensus´ Website, where the Users arrive from the Website and what pages they have visited.

We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies from third party service providers as de-identified, Individual-level Information or as Aggregate Information.

 

Google Analytics: Google Analytics is used to perform many of the tasks listed above.

Please note that if you chose to disable or not to activate cookies, either immediately or later, you may not be able to access secure areas of websites or services and other parts of websites or services may be limited or not work properly.

  

You can disable cookies by choosing the option that your computer receives a warning each time a cookie is sent, or you can choose to deactivate all cookies. To do so, you must go to the configuration menu of your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome ...).

Furthermore, social networks with which arcensus interacts on the web use cookies in their buttons to share. arcensus does not have any intervention, control or information of results, which are in the responsibility of each social network. When the User registers with credentials of a social network, he authorizes the corresponding social network to keep a persistent cookie that remembers his identity and guarantees access until it expires. The User can delete said cookie and revoke access by updating their preferences in the corresponding social network. arcensus recommends the User to review the conditions of use and privacy policies and cookies of the social networks used. As aforementioned, if the User would like to disable cookies the option can be activated that the Users´ computer receives a warning each time a cookie is sent.
