In other words, cookies enable a website to recognize the user’s device, and they make our Service more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Additionally, cookies make it possible for our systems to recognize your browser and consequently provide you with the best possible configuration.

Cookies are highly volatile and may be subject to frequent changes, so, regardless of the fact that we make our best effort to keep this Cookie Policy updated, please have in mind that the information on the particular cookies contained herein may be changed from time to time.

2. Types of cookies

Generally, there are three ways to classify cookies – by their duration, by their provenance, and by the purpose they serve.

A. Duration

By their duration, cookies may fall under the following categories:

Session cookies – which are temporary. They expire once you close your browser, or upon the ending of your session.

Persistent cookies – which stay on your hard drive until you choose to erase them, or until your browser does do, depending on the cookie’s expiration date. The duration of persistent cookies can vary and each of them has an expiration date written into their code.

B. Provenance

First-party cookies – in accordance with their name, these cookies are put on your device directly by us.

Third-party cookies - these cookies are placed on your device, not by us, but by a third party such as an advertiser or an analytic system. Some third-party cookies (for instance, Google Analytics) collect information about your browsing activities over time and across different websites, which may result in advertisements or other messages being displayed to you based on your browsing history.

You can check which cookies are first-party and which are third-party by checking the category "provider" in the table below. In order to find out more about the processing of your Personal Data by the third parties placing their cookies on Plaky, please read their privacy policies.

3. Use of external tools on Plaky

3.1. Google Analytics

On Plaky, we have integrated Google Analytics website analysis service (with an anonymization function). Website analysis refers to the collection, recording and analysis of information regarding the behaviour of our users. In other words, Google Analytics uses cookies to remember your behaviour and provide us with reports on the visits of the Website and your activity.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

If you wish to read more on how Google processes personal data via Google Analytics, click on the following link: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.

As described in the table in the section "Types of cookies", Google Analytics uses cookies. All information about your use of Plaky generated by the Google Analytics cookies is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google might disclose these personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

We have activated IP anonymization, which means that Google shortens your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other countries that are parties to the European Marketing Area Treaty. Exceptionally, the full IP address may be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Such information is used by Google to analyze your use of the Website in order to compile a report about your Website activities and provide us with other services associated with Plaky and Services.

For additional information on how Google uses information collected via Plaky and the Service, please visit https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en-GB&gl=uk.

Apart from the instructions in the section "How to block cookies?", you can also prevent the disclosure of the data generated by the cookies which refer to the use of the Website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

This browser add-on notifies Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information about website visitors may be transmitted to Google Analytics.

Furthermore, a Google Analytics cookie left behind may be erased at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

3.2. Google Tag Manager

We use Google Tag Manager, which is the service allowing us to administer so-called website tags centrally via an interface. Google Tag Manager implements only tags, whereas no cookies are used and no personal data are collected.

Such data collection by third parties is governed by Google’s privacy policy: https://marketingplatform.google.com/intl/de/about/analytics/tag-manager/use-policy/.

However, Google Tag Manager does not access the data collected as described. In case certain domains/websites or cookies were deactivated, it remains in place for all tracking tags provided that they are implemented using Google Tag Manager.

4. Legal basis for using cookies

We are not permitted to use cookies without your explicit permission, provided via the cookie banner. The legal basis for using cookies is your consent, as further explained in Privacy Policy.

It is assumed that the device you are using is yours. However, if this is not the case (for instance, if you are using your employer’s device to assess Plaky), you are expected to obtain the authorization of the owner of the device that you can agree on their behalf with us storing cookies on the respective device and retrieving information from it as previously described above. In other words, by using the device you confirm that you are authorized to do so.
