OUR COOKIES POLICY
Thank you for visiting our website (“Website”). This cookie notice applies to the Website, any website or branded pages on third party platforms (e.g. Facebook, Instagram) and applications accessed or used through such websites or platforms which are operated by or on behalf of Queenstown Natural Perfumiers Limited (“QNP Site”).
What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites you visit. They are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as providing information to website owners.
What types of cookies may be used on QNP Sites?
We may use the following types of cookies:
Session cookies are temporary cookie files which are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your browser and go back to the site that created that cookie, the website will treat you as a new visitor.
Persistent cookies stay on your browser until you delete them manually or until your browser deletes them based on the duration period set within the cookie. These cookies will recognize you as a return visitor.
Necessary cookies are strictly necessary for the operation of a QNP Site. They enable you to navigate around the site and use our features.
Cookies that send information to us
These are the cookies that we set on a QNP Site and they can only be read by that site. This is known as a “First Party” cookie.
We also place cookies on our ads which are placed on other websites owned by third parties (e.g. Facebook). We obtain information via those cookies when you click on or interact with the advertisement. We may use the information obtained by these cookies to serve you with advertising that is relevant and of interest to you based on your past online behaviour.
Cookies that send information to other companies
These are cookies that are set on a QNP Site to send information to other companies (e.g. Facebook or advertisers). They may use the data collected from these cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to this Website. For example, if you use a social widget (e.g. the Facebook icon) on the Website, it will record your “share” or “like”. Facebook (as the company setting the cookie) will collect the data.
Other similar technologies
QNP Sites also make use of other tracking technologies including IP addresses, log files and web beacons, which also help us tailor QNP Sites to personal needs.
An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet. We may record IP addresses for the following purposes:
(i) troubleshooting technical concerns, (ii) maintaining website safety and security (iii) better understanding how our websites are used, and (iv) to better tailor content to your needs.
We (or a third party on our behalf) may collect information in the form of log files that record website activity and gather statistics about a user’s browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously, and help us gather (among other things) (i) a user’s browser type and operating system, (ii) information about a user’s session (such as the URL they came from, the date and time they visited our website, and which pages they’ve viewed on our website and for how long), and, (iii) other similar navigational or click-stream data.
We may use web beacons (also known as pixels or clear GIFs) on the QNP Sites. Web beacons are small strings of code that provide a method of delivering a graphic image on a web page for the purpose of transferring data back to us. The information collected via web beacons may include information about how a user responds to an email campaign (e.g. the time the email is opened, where does the user link to from the email, etc.). We use web beacon information for a variety of purposes, including, site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising and email auditing and reporting, and personalization.
Manage your cookies and preferences
You should ensure that your computer setting reflects whether you are happy to accept cookies or not. You can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, or you can simply set it to refuse them. You do not need to have cookies on to use or navigate through many parts of QNP Sites although you may not have access to all the features on QNP Sites if you do so. See the ‘help’ button on your browser for how you can do this. If you use different computers in different locations, ensure each browser is set to suit your cookie preferences.
As a web beacon forms part of a webpage, it is not possible to ‘opt-out’ but you can render them ineffective by opting out of the cookies they set.
