b) Why do we use cookies?

We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Site and service to operate, and we refer to these as ‘essential’ or ‘strictly necessary’ cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Site, and we refer to these as ‘performance’ or ‘functionality’ cookies. For example, we use cookies to tailor content and information that we may send or display to you and otherwise personalize your experience while interacting with our Site and to otherwise improve the functionality of the service we provide. We also enable our members to employ cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection with their use of our service in order to allow us and our members to track their contacts or end users. Finally, third parties serve cookies through our Site and service for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

c) Cookies served through our Site

The specific types of first and third-party cookies served through our Site and the purposes they perform are described in further detail below:

  • Essential Website Cookies
    These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Site and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas. Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Site, you cannot refuse them without impacting how our Site functions.
  • Performance and Functionality Cookies
    These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our Site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and to see how visitors move around the Site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated. Although important to us, these cookies are non-essential to the use of the Site. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.
  • Analytics and Customization Cookies
    These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Site is being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our Site and application for you in order to enhance your experience. These cookies may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages.
  • Advertising (Targeting) Cookies
    These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you and your interests. They also perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests. For further information, see the section of this cookie policy entitled “Targeted Online Advertising”.

d) Information Collected by Others

This notice addresses only the policy of the Site and does not include links to other websites accessed from the Site. We are not responsible for the information collection policies of other sites, nor for the practices employed or information collected by websites linked to or from our website. We cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide while visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. Users are advised to exercise caution and review the privacy policy of other websites.

 

e) Contact formsCookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

 

f) Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this Site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

 

g) Analytics(Who we share your data with and how long we retain your data)

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


h) What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

i) Targeted Online Advertising

We have engaged one or more third-party service providers to track and analyze both individualized usage and volume statistical information from interactions with our Site. We also partner with one or more third parties (such as advertisers and ad networks) to display advertising on our Site and/or to manage and serve advertising on other sites.

These third parties use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags and similar tracking technologies to collect and use certain information about your online activities, either on our Mailchimp Sites and/or other sites or mobile apps, to infer your interests and deliver you targeted advertisements that are more tailored to you based on your browsing activities and inferred interests (“Interest Based Advertising”).

Our third-party service providers may also use cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to our Site and/or other sites to measure and track the effectiveness of advertisements and our online marketing activities (for example, by collecting data on how many times you click on one of our ads). The information collected by these third parties does not include personal information that enables you to be specifically identified (e.g. by reference to your name or email address).

Facebook: We also use the pixel function of Facebook Custom Audiences to identify users who have landed on certain pages for the purposes of target group-orientated remarketing and advertising. The Facebook pixel stores a cookie, which means that information about your visit to our Site will be shared with Facebook. Also, as part of the ‘advanced matching’ undertaken by Facebook, other personal information (such as telephone number, email address, Facebook ID) may be shared with Facebook in a protected (hashed) form. These cookies and the information collected are used to create target groups to help Facebook deliver advertising on our behalf to users who have previously visited our Site when they are on Facebook or a digital platform powered by Facebook Advertising, and to track advertising success. You can modify your Facebook Ad settings to restrict these advertisements. Navigate to Settings/Adverts in your Facebook account to adjust your preferences. Learn more about the different types of Facebook cookies here: https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies/

j) How can you control cookies?

You do not have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. However, in case of any questions / concerns, you can contact us at customerservice@dgfootprints.com.

 

k) How often we will update this cookie policy?

We may update this cookie policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this cookie policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.
