During the course of your visits to the Website, the Website automatically logs your Internet Protocol Address (“IP Address”) which is a unique identifying number automatically assigned to you every time you connect to the internet or, if you use an always-on connection such as broadband or ADSL, when you boot up your computer.
This IP Address contains information regarding the location of your computer on the internet (your country of origin) and the name of your internet service provider. Without such an IP Address, websites would not be able to deliver their content to you as they would not be able to find your computer on the internet.
Your IP Address is grouped up with the other logged IP addresses and is logged in order to provide us with statistics on the geographic location of visitors to our site, how long they stay on the Website which are the most viewed pages and for other statistical reasons. Collecting this type of information allows us to administer our site, diagnose any potential server problems, analyse visitor trends and statistics, and generally help us provide you with a better internet experience. IP Addresses are not stored for longer than necessary for the above purposes.
What are cookies?
There are four main types of cookies that we use. Here’s how and why we use them:
(1) Site functionality cookies – these cookies allow you to navigate the site and use our features.
(2) Site analytics cookies – these cookies allow us to measure and analyse how our customers use the site, to improve both its functionality and your online experience.
(3) Customer preference cookies – when you are browsing, these cookies will remember your preferences when you return to the Website (like your language or location), and whether you
are a registered user, so we can make your online experience as seamless as possible and more personal to you.
(4) Targeting or advertising cookies – these cookies are used to deliver ads that are relevant to you. They also limit the number of times that you see an ad and help us measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
Please note that the cookies used by us do not personally identify you but they simply identify your computer or other device.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser to block all, or certain, cookies. You can also set your browser to prompt you each time a cookie is offered. Be aware that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit. Disabling cookies will usually result in also disabling certain functionality and features of this site. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not disable cookies.
We also use Google Analytics to monitor how the website is used. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and generates reports detailing information such as the number of visits to the website, where visitors generally came from, how long they stayed on the website, and which pages they visited. Google Analytics places several persistent cookies on your computer's hard drive. These do not collect any personal data. If you do not agree to this you can disable persistent cookies in your browser. This will prevent Google Analytics from logging your visits.
While every effort is done to protect the privacy of individuals, if you feel that your privacy has been affected or have further questions do not hesitate to contact Oval Brand’s designated representative Brian Schembri at email@example.com.
