A cookie is a short text file that may be stored on your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website, including this website. The information provided by the cookie is transferred to eCobalt’s server and saved there, to enable us to analyze user behaviour and how the website is used. Your IP address will be immediately anonymized; which means users are anonymous. The information generated by the cookies regarding how you use the website will not be passed on to third parties.
The cookies on our website are Google Analytics cookies and Matomo cookies. Google Analytics and Matomo are analytical services.
Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics sets four cookies that allow us to analyze traffic on this website. Google Analytics cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors to this website and to see how visitors move around the site (in particular, what pages of the website are being visited). This helps us to improve the way our website works.
Matomo is an open source web analysis tool. eCobalt uses Matomo on this website for statistical purposes. Matomo does not transfer any data to servers without the consent of eCobalt. Matomo uses three types of cookies:
- Display and preference settings cookies - for example, if you changed the size of the text on our website when you last visited, a cookie will remember that so that you don’t need to do it again.
- “Session cookies” - to identify and maintain a browsing session, and to remember whether you have rejected cookies through your browser settings.
- Cookies that track whether a social networking option has been used to forward material from our website (so that we know which social networking tools are in use).
These cookies do not collect or track any personal data or information about you as an individual. Instead, they are focused on how the website is used, and seek to enhance the accessibility of the website.
We also log your domain and IP address automatically when you visit this website. This data identifies the computer that you are using to view this website and your approximate geographic location. Again, we do this to track usage patterns.
Note that most web browsers allow some control of cookies through browser settings. If you delete or block our cookies, some parts of the website may not work properly, because some of our cookies are necessary for the operation of this website.
Our website is hosted and maintained by Adnet Communications Inc. (www.adnetinc.com/contact/)
