This notice explains digital identifiers, or ‘cookies’, what they are, how we use them on our website and what controls you have. We suggest you read this document together with our Privacy Notice to understand how we manage your data.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server and provides information about the individual user's online movements.
Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Without cookies, some things would not work on websites, or you may have to log in to the website every time you visited a different page.
Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
Preference cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, like your preferred language or the region that you are in.
Statistic cookies help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers.
Havila stores information about what keywords users use on our websites in Google Analytics. The purpose of the storage is to make our information offer better. The search usage pattern is stored in aggregated form. Only the keyword is saved, and they can't be linked to other information about users, such as the IP addresses.
