Cookie Policy

This “Cookie Policy” (our policy on the use of cookies) applies to all websites, including pages on third party platforms (for example, Facebook or YouTube), and to any applications accessed or used through these websites or third party platforms, whether they are run by or for the Diferente company.

By using our Websites, you agree to our use of cookies in accordance with this Cookie Policy. If you do not agree to our use of cookies, you need to adjust your browser to the appropriate settings or do not use any of the Websites of the Diferente company. If you decide to disable the cookies we use, it could affect your user experience when visiting one of our Websites.

The table below summaries the different types of cookies that might be used on the Websites of the Diferente company, along with their respective functions and duration (i.e. how long each cookie will remain on your device).

What are cookies?

Cookies are computer files or partial data that can be saved on your computer (or any other Internet enabled devices, e.g. smartphones or tablets) when you visit a Website. Cookies usually contain the name of its source website, the “life span” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device) and its value, which is normally a randomly generated unique number.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to make our Websites easier to use and to better suit them to your interests and needs. Cookies are also used to help us speed up your future browsing experiences and activities on our Websites. Furthermore, we use cookies to compile aggregate anonymous statistics that allow us to understand how people use our Websites and help us to improve the structure and contents of these Websites. We cannot identify you in person through this information.

Which types of cookies do we use?

Two types of cookies may be used on our Websites: ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies’. ‘Session cookies’ are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you leave the Website. ‘Persistent cookies’ stay on your device for a much longer period of time or until you delete them manually (how long these cookies will remain on your device will depend on the ‘life span’ of the cookie in question and on your browser settings).

Some of the pages you visit may also collect information through ‘pixel tags’ (also known as ‘clear GIFs’), which might be shared with third parties who directly support us with our promotional activities and website development. For example, information on how people who visit our Websites use other websites might be shared with advertising agencies to optimally target the advertising banners on our websites. In any case, this information cannot identify you in person, even if it could be associated with your personal data.
