We use in our site https://labhandy.com/ ("Site") cookies and similar files or technologies to automatically collect and store information about your computer, device, and Site usage, in order to improve their performance and enhance your user experience. We use the general term "cookies" in this policy to refer to these technologies and all such similar technologies that collect information automatically when you are using our Site where this policy is posted. You can find out more about cookies and how to control them in the information below.
What is a cookie? A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are text files that are created by your internet browser in accordance with instructions provided to it by the system computers. Some of the “cookies” will be deleted from your computer once you close the internet browser, however, others will be saved on your computer/device.
There are two broad categories of cookies:
- First-party cookies are served directly by us to your computer or mobile device.
Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are 'session cookies, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are 'permanent cookies, meaning that they persist after your browser is closed. They can be used by websites to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.
Web beacons. Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are small graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Site. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Site to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve website performance and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In most instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function, and therefore declining cookies prevents them from functioning.
Targeted advertising. Third parties may drop cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Site. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details, or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these to us.
