Cookies Policy

1. INTRODUCTION

GLOBAL DATA INTELLIGENCE Ltd (we/us or “GLOBAL DATABASE”) understands that your privacy is important to you and is therefore committed to being transparent about the technologies it uses. Its Cookie Policy explains how and why the cookies might be stored on and accessed from your device when you visit www.globaldatabase.com (“Our Site”).
 

2. WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small text files, stored by your browser onto your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or to work in a better, more efficient way. They’re able to do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient.

3. WHY DO WE USE THEM?

We use cookies to enhance your experience when you use our website. For example, by saving your language preference and remembering it the next time you use our website, authentication, performance, and security.  With the information provided by cookies, we can adapt our website to your personal needs and introduce improvements to our website based on the way you, the user, want to use it.

We work with other third-party organisations to provide the services on our website. A third party is an organisation which is not hosted at the domain address in your browser when you visit our website. These third parties may also use cookies on our website and can also place cookies on your device without you visiting their website directly. If you would like more information about this, please read the section Third Party Cookies.

4. AUTHORISATION FOR USE OF COOKIES ON OUR SITE

Before cookies are placed on your computer or device, you will be shown a pop-up requesting your consent to set them. In accordance with this cookies policy usage appearing on our site homepage, you agree that, when browsing our site, you consent to the use of cookies described herein, except to the extent that you have modified your browser settings to disable their use.

5. COOKIE CATEGORISATION

Depending on who installs them:

  • First Party Cookies:  Cookies installed by our own website. These are cookies sent to the user’s browser from the server or domain managed by the publisher from which the service requested by the user is provided.

  • Third party cookies: Those that are installed from pages that are not ours. These are cookies sent to the user’s browser from a server or domain that is not managed by the publisher but by a separate entity that treats the data obtained by means of said cookies.

Depending on the duration:

  • Session cookies: A type of cookie designed to collect data while the user is accessing a website.

  • Persistent cookies: A type of cookie in which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period, defined by the person responsible for the cookie, that can range from a few minutes to several years.

Depending on the purpose for which data obtained through cookies is processed.

  • Strictly necessary cookie: These cookies are essential to a website in order to enable a user to move around and to use the site’s features, such as remembering information entered on forms when a user moves between pages within a browser session. Without strictly necessary cookies, certain services on a website may not be available and a website may not perform as smoothly as it should.

  • Performance cookie: Performance cookies collect information about the use of a website and help to improve the way a website works. For example, performance cookies may show which are the most frequently visited pages, help to record any difficulties with a website and show whether advertising on a website is effective or not. Performance cookies do not collect information that identifies a user personally and all information that is collected by these cookies is aggregated and anonymous.

  • Functionality cookie: Functionality cookies allow a website to remember the choices you make and to provide enhanced and more personal features. Functionality cookies also remember changes you have made, such as customising a certain webpage and for other services you request such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. Functionality cookies will not track your activity on other websites.

  • Targeting cookie or advertising cookie: Targeting cookies or advertising cookies are used to deliver adverts which are more relevant to you and your interests, or to limit the number of times you see the same advert on a website. These types of cookie are also used to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. These cookies may be used to remember what you have looked at on a website.
