Arcutel Cookie Policy

This document explains what you need to know about how Arcutel Ltd ('Arcutel') uses cookies on it’s websites, and how to choose to manage or remove them if you wish to do so.

We take your privacy rights very seriously and seek to comply with Irish Data Protection laws and regulations.

1. Summary

Cookies are small data files which are sent to a user’s computer or mobile phone from a website and are stored on the hard drive of the user’s device. They are helpful because they help to make a website work better for a user.

2. About cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data (which often includes a unique identifier) that is sent to a user’s computer or mobile phone from a website and is stored on the local storage of a device. Each website can send it’s own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to report on website traffic. Your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

3. How to manage cookies

Internet browsers allow users to manage their cookies. They can set their devices to accept all cookies, to let them know when a cookie has been set, or to never receive cookies. Each browser works in a different way: use the 'Help' menu in your browser to find out how to change your cookie preferences. For information about how to do this on the browser of your mobile phone you should refer to your handset manual. Please be aware that disabling cookies completely means that certain personalised features will not then be provided to that user and, therefore, they may not be able to make full use of all of the website’s features.

4. How Arcutel uses cookies

Cookies on arcutel.com ('Website') are used in a number of ways:

4.1. Performance Cookies

These cookies collect anonymous information on the pages visited and allow us to optimise your web experience – by analysing this data we can make the more popular pages on the Website easier to find and allow you to revisit the site again later, whilst remembering any preferences you may have set. This information is not used for advertising purposes on any other sites. Some performance cookies are provided by third parties: on the Arcutel Website we use Google Analytics and Inspectlet. Google Analytics and Inspectlet store the information collected by the cookie on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

4.2. Functional Cookies

These cookies remember choices you have made to improve your experience. This information is not used for advertising purposes on any other sites.

4.3. Targeting Cookies

We only use tracking cookies to allow you to share pages with social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google + or Add This. Some of these are provided by third parties. This information is not used for advertising purposes on any other sites.

4.4. Local Shared Objects (Flash Cookies)

The Arcutel Website uses the Adobe Flash Player to deliver some of it’s content, including video. To improve user experience, Local Shared Objects (or Flash Cookies as they are commonly known) are used to provide features such as saving preferences. Flash cookies are stored on a user’s terminal much the same as cookies are, but it is not possible to manage them at browser level in the same way as other website cookies.

Third party Cookies

As can be seen above, some cookies are not set by the Arcutel Website, but by other sites which provide a service or functionality on our Website. These are known as third–party cookies. Managing, deleting or blocking these cookies requires you to visit the websites of these third parties. The third–party cookies used by our Website are from Google Analytics, Inspectlet, LinkedIn, Google +, Adobe, Facebook, Twitter, and Add This. We may permit certain third–party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to you based on your use of the Website. You may opt out of the DoubleClick cookie by visiting the Google advertising opt–out page, or you may opt out of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics opt–out page. You can learn more about cookies and how to manage them at allaboutcookies.org.
