What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the site again, the cookie allows the site to recognise your browser. Cookies can store user preferences and other information.
Cookies provide a convenient feature to save you time, or tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Isabel Gomez) are called "first-party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third-party cookies". Third party cookies enable the provision of third party features or functionality on or through the website (for example, such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties setting these third party cookies may recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and when it visits certain other websites.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons in order for our websites to function, and we call these "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also allow us to track and target the interests of our users to improve the experience on our websites and our service. For example, Isabel Gomez Studio keeps track of the websites and pages you visit within Isabel Gomez Studio, in order to determine which part of the Isabel Gomez Studio website or service is most popular or most used. This data is used to provide personalised content and promotions on the Isabel Gomez Studio website and subscription service to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular area. Third parties distribute cookies through our websites for advertising, analytical and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
What types of cookies do we use and how do we use them?
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our websites and the purposes they serve. For a list of cookies used by Isabel Gomez Studio, see this page. These cookies include:
Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with the services available through our Websites.
Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are used to improve the performance and functionality of our Websites but are not essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain features may become unavailable.
Analytics and personalisation cookies: These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our websites are used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us personalise our websites for you.
Advertising cookies: These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions such as preventing the same ad from appearing over and over again, ensuring that ads are displayed correctly for advertisers and, in some cases, selecting ads based on your interests.
Social network cookies: These cookies are used to allow you to share pages and content you find interesting on our websites through third party social networks and other websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes as well.
How can I control cookies?
You have the right to decide whether or not to accept cookies.
You can set or modify your web browser controls to accept or reject cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you can still use our website, although your access to certain features and areas of our website may be limited. As the ways in which you can reject cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser to browser, please consult your browser's help menu for more information.
In addition, most advertising networks offer you the opportunity to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com. You can opt out by clicking here: http://optout.aboutads.info/ or http://optout.networkadvertising.org/ (or if you are located in the European Union, by clicking here: http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/). Please note that this option does not allow you to stop receiving advertisements. You will continue to receive generic advertisements.
Essential website cookies: As these cookies are strictly necessary to provide the websites to you, you cannot refuse them. However, you can block or delete them by changing your browser settings as described above.
What about other tracking technologies, such as web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We use a software technology called web beacons (also known as web beacons/web bugs), which help us better manage the website by telling us what content is effective. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are used to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages or in emails and are about the size of the full stop at the end of this sentence. We use pixels or web beacons in our HTML e-mails to track which e-mails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We link the information collected by the web beacons in the emails to our customers' personal information.
