WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are small text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded and may be stored on your user device e.g. your computer (or other internet enabled devices, such as a smartphone or tablet). At Bablr we may use similar techniques, such as pixels, web beacons and device fingerprints. For the sake of consistency, all these techniques combined will be hereafter referred to as ‘cookies’.
COOKIES USED ON THE PLATFORM
FUNCTIONAL OR NECESSARY COOKIES
Functional cookies are essential and help you navigate the Platform. They enhance the user friendliness of the Platform for visitors. These cookies make sure that you only have to pass the age-gate once and that your basket is saved during all the steps of your checkout process. These cookies also help to support Platform security and basic functionality. You can block them using browser settings but doing so may hamper the functioning of our platform on your device and may affect your experience.
Analytics cookies help us to understand the behaviour of our visitors and the usage of the Platform in an aggregated manner. For instance, we can use these cookies to gain insight into how our visitors use our platform This means we can find out what works and what doesn’t, it allows us to continuously improve the Website, and measure how effective our advertising and communication is.
Advertising cookies will remember your product and page preferences and in general that you visited the Platform. We strive to provide you with advertisements relevant to you and your interests on other online platforms, where available on the basis of your visits and surfing behaviour on our Platform and other third party websites. Based on these interests, we develop a segmented profile and then adapt the content and the advertisements on our platform for various groups of customers.
Third parties that set cookies via our platform may also try to find out what your interests are in this way, and this information may also be used to present you with content or advertisements that appear more likely to be of interest to you on other, non-BABLR websites. In this case, the information about your current website visit may be combined with information from previous visits to websites other than ours.
These advertising cookies are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertisements.
Even if these advertising cookies are not used, please note that you will be provided with advertisements on our site; however, these advertisements will not be tailored to your interests. These advertisements can, for instance, be modified according to the content of the website. You can compare this type of content-related Internet advertisements with advertising on television. If, say, you are watching a cookery programme on TV, you will often see an advertisement about cooking products during the advert breaks while this programme is on.
CONTROL YOUR COOKIE SETTINGS
Bablr may also offer you the possibility to set your preferences regarding cookies. By clicking ‘Cookie settings’ you can choose which type of cookies you would like our website to use. You can change your preferences at any time – including completely withdrawing the consent you have previously given to us. You can access your Cookie Preferences via the link provided later in this document.
DIFFERENT PORTALS ON THE PLATFORM
As a Bablr user you will be using our marketing websites which are different for different jurisdictions or our WebApp which may be set up on different servers for different jurisdictions. Since these technology assets may function independently of each other, they may have slight difference in the cookies they use. As far as reasonably possible, we will display a banner to capture your preferences to and consents on each of these portals separately. You are also requested to manage your preferences for each portal separately.
Please be aware that Bablr may not have a technical solution that would enable us to respond to your browser’s ‘Do Not Track’ signals. Besides using the Cookie Settings section on our platform, you may manage your cookie settings in your browser settings at any time. Please be aware that your browser settings may not offer you the same ease of use as the Cookie Settings on our platform. If you simply disable all cookies or all of our cookies in your browser settings, you may find that certain sections or features of our platform will not work, because your browser may prevent us from setting functionally required cookies. Therefore, it is recommended to use the Cookie Settings on our platform instead of disabling all cookies via your web browser.
