GradeEight and its affiliates (collectively, “Winzer”) respect your privacy. This Cookie Notice (the “Notice”) sets out what you need to know about the cookies and other technologies (collectively “cookies”) that we use and why we use them. You should also read our Privacy Notice to find out what we do with the personal information we gather from www.winzer.com (the “Site”).
Any changes to this Notice will be posted here.
What are cookies?
Our Site uses a cookie to function effectively. A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size, and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. Certain pages on this Site may also contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, and clear GIFs). These are computer instructions that link web pages to particular web servers and their cookies.
If you do not accept the use of these cookies, please disable them before proceeding to use the Site.
What types of cookies does the Site use?
1) Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential in order to allow you to move around the website safely and use all its features. For example, without these cookies, you would not be able to access secure areas of the Site. Winzer uses these cookies to enable the services on our Site that you have specifically requested and preserve your preferences across page requests. Essential cookies help us understand information, such as your session ID and other server authentication information. In addition, they help us understand whether you have viewed our cookie consent banner.
Generally, these cookies will only stay on your browser for the length of your browsing session and once you close your browser, the cookies will be deleted. This category of cookies should not be disabled. If you use your browser settings to block these strictly necessary cookies, we cannot guarantee your security or predict how our Site will perform during your visit.
2) Functionality Cookies
These cookies allow us to offer you a customized browsing experience. They capture information such as the pages you have browsed or products you have viewed so that we can provide you with a better experience. Functionality cookies allow us to remember visitor choices and preferences, or if you have already replied to surveys or interacted with content downloads. These cookies allow our Site to automatically set user selections like language, location, text size, and usernames and provide functions that a visitor requests. The information gathered by functionality cookies is de-identified and not linked to information about how visitors use other websites.
3) Analytics Cookies
We also use our own analytics cookie that collects statistical data related to the user’s website visits. The purpose is to segment the website’s users according to factors such as demographics and geographical location.
4) Advertising Cookies
We may use advertising cookies to customize the content, such as catalogs and whitepapers, you receive on the Site, to determine your interest in our products, services, and solutions, to help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns, and to conduct market research. These cookies remember what you have looked at on the Site (pages visited, content clicked on, terms searched for), and send information to a marketing platform. They track users across devices and marketing channels to determine, for example, if it is the users’ first visit to the Site. The information may be combined with other information acquired from third parties such as demographics and other marketing segment information to serve interest-based advertising.
How to manage cookies through your browser settings
You can manage cookies through your web browser settings. If you decide to change your settings and disable cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our Site features. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. Disabling a cookie or category of cookie does not delete the cookie from your browser, as you will need to do this yourself from within your browser. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
