2. What cookies are and how they are used
Cookies are small text files that are placed and stored on your computer or mobile device when you access websites. Cookies are designed to support our website’s functionality and accelerate users’ access according to their previous activity, thus expediting users logging procedure and/or settings adjustment.
Cookies undertake a number of useful tasks, including improving security of a website and monitoring website performance.
3. Cookies that we use
Elva’s website uses any of the following groups of cookies:
Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed. Session cookies allow the website to recognise you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently.
Persistent cookies: this type of cookie is saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually a year or longer). In contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your equipment between browsing sessions until expiry or deletion. They therefore enable the website to “recognise” you on your return, remember your preferences, and tailor services to you. These cookies will remain valid for the period which is strictly necessary for the purposes for which they have been installed.
In addition to session cookies and persistent cookies, there may be other cookies which are set by a different organisation to the owner of the website you are visiting in order to provide us or third parties with information. For example, the website uses a third party company analytics (Google Analytics) who will set their own cookies to perform this service.
The cookies used on our website do not collect personal data that can be used to individually identify you and do not pass on any document or personal data from our web users’ electronic device to third parties.
With the use of these cookies is not possible to identify you. They simply provide us with anonymous information which helps us understand in which parts of the website our guests are interested and if they confront any surfing problem. We also use these cookies in order to try different designs and features for our website.
Most browsers accept the mission by default cookies but you can usually set your browser to refuse receipt or selectively accept certain cookies. If you disable receiving cookies, certain features provided on our website may not be available and some web pages may not correctly display.
