Introduction and what is a cookie

 

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, to perform more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information and provide you a better experience.

 

Cookies set by Avaus (avaus.com) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than Avaus (avaus.com) are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your device both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites. Cookies are only one option to identify and track website users. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels”). These are small files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our web service or opened an email including them. Many times, these methods are dependent on cookies to function properly. Thus, rejecting cookies may impair their functionality.

 

Why do we use cookies

 

We use cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are necessary for our website for technical reasons and we refer to these as “obligatory” cookies. Some cookies give us the possibility to enhance the overall user experience of our web services by tracking and targeting the activities of our users. Some third party cookies are used for other purposes such as advertising. The usage of cookies is defined more precisely later in this Cookie Policy.

 

How can I control cookies?

 

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. The cookie control tool allows you to select which categories of cookies you accept or reject. Obligatory cookies cannot be rejected as they are strictly necessary to provide you with services.

 

The cookie control tool can be accessed via the compliance banner pop-up on our website’s landing page (first time visitors) and via our website navigation links. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

 

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit https://www.youronlinechoices.com.

 

How will this Cookie Policy be updated?

 

We reserve a right to update this Cookie Policy every now and then if needed for any operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Thus, we highly recommend to re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to be up to date about how we use cookies and related technologies.
