Visiting AMJANE’s website implies the collection of personal data by means of cookies or similar technologies.
What are Cookies?
What kind of cookies are we talking about?
There are different types of cookies. Some are necessary for the proper functioning of a website, others are used to improve and simplify its use:
- Cookies strictly necessary for the functioning of the websites;
- Functional cookies ;
- Authentication cookies ;
- Performance cookies ;
- Targeting/ third party cookies ;
Cookies strictly necessary for the operation of AMJane websites do not collect any information about the user that may be used for marketing purposes and are essential to use AMJane websites. These cookies are exempt from the consent requirement in accordance with Article 129 of the Electronic Communications Act of 13 June 2005 (see points 3.1 and seq., of the opinion 04/2012 of the Article 29 Working Party, independent European advisory body bringing together the members of the various national authorities for the protection of personal data about exceptions to the consent requirement for cookies).
Functional cookies are used to store the user’s login data, to secure the user’s login to the AMJane website, to provide live assistance. These cookies do not collect any information about the user that can be used for marketing purposes. These cookies are also exempt from the consent requirement (see points 3.1 and 3.3 of the opinion mentioned above).
Authentication cookies allow users to identify themselves and access secure content. These cookies do not collect any information about the user that can be used for marketing purposes. These cookies are also exempt from the consent requirement (see section 3.2 of the opinion mentioned above).
Performance cookies allow AMJane to collect information about how users browse the AMJane websites, and to adapt and improve these websites accordingly. AMJane is unable to identify users using this type of cookie, and all data collected by these cookies are processed anonymously. These cookies do not collect any information about the user that can be used for marketing purposes. These cookies are placed and used on the basis on the consent given by the user.
Targeting/third parties cookies. AMJane could possibly conduct advertising campaigns, including the use of third parties who may sometimes place cookies (or similar technologies) to evaluate the success of the campaign, or show targeted advertising, adapted to the interests of the users, or to limit the number of views per user. For example, links to the social networks or to videos on YouTube -who are third parties- can, if appropriate, place cookies on the websites of AMJane. These cookies are placed and used based of the consent given by the user.
When a user refuses to use this type of cookies, the user can only access pages and services that do not require these cookies. The parts of AMJane websites that technically allow the inclusion of third-party content -and therefore third-party cookies- will no longer be accessible and a message will inform the users.
A distinction has to be made as well between:
- Session Cookies
- Permanent cookies
Session cookies are automatically removed from the computer’s hard drive or the user’s browser memory when he/she logs out and/or closes the browser.
Permanent cookies are stored on the computer’s hard drive or in the user’s browser memory for a limited period of time (minutes, days or years) after the browser is disconnected or closed.
