The cookies, web beacons, tags, and similar technologies can be grouped based on their characteristics or purpose.
Based on the length of their expiration period, cookies can be session-based or persistent.
- Session cookies only last for as long as the session and they expire at the end of your current visit to the Site. They allow us to link your actions during that particular session.
- Persistent cookies are stored on your device in between browser sessions, allowing us to remember your preferences or actions across multiple visits or sites.
Based on ownership, cookies fall into two categories:
- First-party cookies are those set and managed by Eltris and our Site that is being visited by the user at the time in order to preserve your preferences.
- Third-party cookies are placed in your browser by a domain, and a vendor, that is not the Site that you are currently visiting. Our Site sets third-party cookies from our analytics and marketing partners and vendors.
Cookies, web beacons, tags, and similar technologies, managed by us or third parties, serve various purposes on our Site. Based on purpose, they can be either essential for the functioning of our Site and Services or enable us with extra functionality such as tracking trends and movements of the users, analyzing demographic information, provide performance and analytic data about the Site, and serve to advertise. Based on the purpose we classify them in the following categories:
- Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are necessary for the website to function. They can store your account identifier, ordering status, personalization, or website tracking. They can also be used for technical purposes such as keeping track of your current shopping session and enabling you to proceed to checkout and pay for your order or to save information that has already been entered (for example your region and languages choices), so that we can offer improved and more personalized services, products, and other relevant communication tailored to you. Cookies also allow us to fulfill our contractual obligations to third parties and partners if you have made a purchase on our website by following a link from theirs. You cannot manage this type of cookies in our system and to disable them, you’ll need to switch them off across the board in your browser settings. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but please note that some parts of the site will not work in this case.
- Analytics cookies: We use analytics services by third parties to collect information about the use of this Site, such as the number of visits, pages visited, the popularity of certain content. Analytics tools use tracking cookies to recognize your device and compile information about you. They collect information such as what pages you visit and how much time you spend on these pages, the IP address assigned to you, what operating system and web browser you use, and what site you visited prior to visiting our website. If you disable these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor and improve its performance.
- Functional Cookies: These cookies enable our website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
- Targeting Cookies: Our Site includes marketing cookies provided by third parties. That allows these parties to collect information that you have visited our Site and were interested in certain offers. We also use beacons, tags, click tracking codes, and scripts to analyze trends and movements of users around the Site, gather information about the user base as a whole, and how we can improve our Services and Site, to provide advertising based on activities and interests and to measure advertising effectiveness. As a result, we may display targeted, or interest-tailored offers based on the products you currently own or have recently viewed and deliver other communication more relevant to you and your interests outside of our Site, on other websites part of the third party’s network.
A list of the cookies we use on our Site classified in each category can be found in our designated Cookie Settings tool. For the composition of the list of cookies in each category, our Site is scanned with a cookie scanning tool regularly to maintain it as accurately as possible.
