What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a particular website. With cookies, a website remembers your actions and preferences (such as sign-in, language, font size, and other display-related preferences) over time, so you do not have to re-enter them each time you return to the site or browse its various pages.

How do we use cookies?

www.visioncompliance.eu uses cookies and similar technologies for several purposes, depending on the context or product, including:

1) temporary user session-id cookies and/or persistent cookies limited to a few hours in some cases – we use them to store your preferences and settings on your device and to improve your experience. For example, saving your personal preferences in cookies allows you to not have to constantly set your preferences anew. Also, if you opt out of interest-based ads, we store your opt-out choices in a cookie on your device;

2) authentication cookies, which are used for authentication services, during the use of the site – we use them to verify your credentials. This cookie allows you to move from page to page without having to log in again on each page. You can also save your login information, so you do not have to log in every time you return to the site;

3) user security cookies, which are used to detect misuse of authentication, with limited duration – we use them to process security information that allows us to identify fraud and misuse;

4) multimedia cookies, such as flash player cookies, for the duration of the page visit;

5) content loading cookies, during the visit to the page – we use them to remember the information you give us, and we store this information in a cookie so that we can remember this information;

6) persistent customization cookies for the user interface during the visit to the page (or a little longer) – we use these cookies to allow you to give feedback on the website;

7) third-party cookies for social network plug-ins for logged-in social network members – some of our websites include social media cookies, including those that allow users who are logged in to a social network to share content over that network. The specific impact on your privacy will vary from social network to social network and depends on the privacy settings you choose on those networks. You can find out how to manage these cookies on their website.

Some of our sites include Meta social networks cookies.

Do we use other cookies?

Some of our sites or subpages may use additional and/or different cookies from those previously listed and described. For example:

– companies we hire to provide services on our behalf, such as website analytics, set cookies when you visit our websites;

– companies that deliver content, such as videos, set their own cookies.

Which cookies does Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. use?

www.visioncompliance.eu collects, uses, and manages your personal data which are also on the Facebook page of “˝Vision Compliance” and which are available using the said page.

Meta uses cookies if you have a Facebook account, if you use Meta products, including our Facebook page and applications, or if you visit other websites and applications that use Meta products (including the “like” button or other Meta technologies).

Cookies allow Meta to offer you Meta products and to understand the information it receives about you, including information about your use of other websites and applications, regardless of your registration or logged in status.

Cookies help provide, protect, and enhance Meta products, for example by personalizing content, customizing and measuring ads, and providing a safer environment. Although the cookies used by Meta may change from time to time in accordance with improvements and updates to Meta products, they are used for the following purposes: authentication; site and product security and integrity; suppressing activities that violate Meta rules or otherwise prevent the proper provision of Meta products; advertising, recommendations, analytics and measurement; measuring the success of advertising campaigns for companies using Meta products; allowing you to turn off ads on Facebook based on activity on other sites; providing content that is relevant to your area; performance; analytics and research.

Cookies used by Meta are placed on your computer or device and if you use products provided by other members of Meta companies and websites and applications provided by other companies that use Meta products, including companies that embed Meta technologies in their websites and applications. This means that in certain circumstances, in addition to the website www.visioncompliance.eu as the data controller, your data may be collected by other Meta partners as well as other companies that may use Meta services.

Facebook uses cookies and receives data when you visit its websites and applications, including device data and activity data without any additional action on your part. This happens regardless of whether you have a Facebook account and whether you are logged in or not.

 

Do other parties also use cookies associated with Meta products?

Yes, other parties may use cookies associated with Meta products to provide services to companies that advertise on Facebook.

Meta analytics partners, for example, use cookies on Meta products to help advertisers understand the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on Facebook and compare the impact of those campaigns with ads displayed on other websites and in other applications.

Third parties also use cookies on their own websites and in their own applications in connection with Meta products. To find out how other parties use cookies, review their policies.

How do I manage how Meta uses cookies to display ads?

One of the reasons we use cookies is to show you useful and relevant ads on and off Facebook.

However, you can control the way Meta uses data for serving ads using the tools described below, and that part cannot be influenced by the data processor.

All:

You can turn off online interest ads served by Meta and other companies through the Digital Advertising Alliance in the U.S., the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada in Canada, or the European Interactive Digital Advertising Association in Europe, or through mobile device settings. Please note that ad blocking software and tools that restrict our use of cookies may interfere with these controls.

Additional information about online advertising:

The advertising companies with which Meta cooperates mainly use cookies and similar technologies as part of their services. To learn more about how advertisers generally use cookies and the choices they offer, explore the following resources: Digital Advertising Alliance, Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada, and the European Association for Interactive Digital Advertising.

Managing cookies in your browser:

In addition, your browser or device may contain settings that allow you to choose whether cookies are stored in the browser and the ability to delete cookies. For more information about these controls, see the browser or device help.

What cookies does Google LLC and its affiliates use?

www.visioncompliance.eu also uses certain Google services based on which, through cookies, Google LLC also collects certain personal data (hereinafter: Google).

The following is considered under the term Google Services:

– Google applications,

– sites and

– Devices and services like Search, YouTube, and Google Home, platforms like Chrome Browser and Android

– products that are integrated into third-party applications and websites, such as ads and

– embedded Google Maps.

When you sign in and interact with some Google services, such as posting a comment on a video on YouTube, your name and image will appear next to your activities. Google may also display this information in ads, depending on your preferences.

Google may also share certain categories of data publicly with its partners, such as advertisers or developers. Google also allows certain partners to collect data from your browser or device for advertising and measurement purposes through their own cookies or similar technologies.

Google uses cookies for many purposes. For example, to remember your SafeSearch settings, to make the ads you see more relevant to you, to count visitors to a particular page, to help you sign up for certain Google services, to protect your information, or to remember your ad preferences.

Below you can see a list of the types of cookies used by Google and learn how Google and its partners use cookies in advertising.

  1. Use of the “Settings” cookies

These cookies allow Google sites to remember information that changes the way a website works or looks, such as your chosen language or area. For example, when it remembers which area you are in, a site may offer local weather or traffic news. These cookies can also help you resize text, font, and other parts of web pages that you can customize.

If the information stored in the settings cookie is lost, the site may lose some of its functionality, but this should not prevent the site from working.

Example:

Most Google users have a settings cookie called “NID” in their browser. The browser sends this cookie with requests to Google sites. The “NID” cookie contains a unique ID that Google uses to store your settings and other information, such as your chosen language (e.g. Croatian), how many search results you want to appear on the page (e.g. 10 or 20), and whether to have Google’s safe search filter turned on.

  1. Use of “Security” cookies

Google uses security cookies to authenticate users and protect user data from unauthorized parties.

Example:

Google uses the “SID” and “HSID” cookies, which contain digitally signed and encrypted records of the user’s Google Account ID and the time of last login. The combination of these two cookies allows Google to block many types of attacks, such as attempts to steal the content of forms you fill out on web pages.

  1. Use of “Process” cookies

Process cookies help make the website work and deliver services that the website visitor expects, like navigating around web pages or accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, the website cannot function properly.

Example:

Google uses a cookie called “lbcs” that allows Google Docs to open multiple documents in a single browser. Blocking this cookie would prevent Google Docs from working properly.

  1. Use of “Advertising” cookies

These categories of cookies help Google make advertising more interesting to users and more valuable to publishers and advertisers. Cookies are typically used to select ads based on their relevance to the user, to improve campaign performance reporting, and to avoid showing the same ads to individual users.

Example:

The NID and SID cookies are used by Google to personalize ads on Google products such as Google search. For example, Google uses these cookies to remember your recent searches, your previous interactions with ads or advertiser search results, and your visits to advertiser sites. The latter allows you to display customized ads on Google.

Google also uses one or more cookies for ads served on the web. One of the major advertising cookies on non-Google sites is called the “IDE” and is stored in browsers under the doubleclick.net domain. Another cookie of the same type is stored under the domain google.com and is called “ANID”.

Google also uses DSID, FLC, AID, TAID, and exchange_uid. Other Google products, such as YouTube, may also use these cookies to display more relevant ads.

Sometimes advertising cookies may be placed on the domain of the site you have visited. In the case of advertising served by Google on the entire web, “__gads” or “__gac” cookies may be placed on the domain of the site you are visiting.

Unlike cookies that are set on Google domains, Google cannot read those cookies when you are on sites where they are not set.

Their purpose is to measure interactions with ads in that domain and prevent over-display of the same ads to users.

Google also uses conversion cookies whose main purpose is to help advertisers determine how many times people who click on their ad follow up by buying their products.

  1. Use of the “Session Status” cookies

Websites often collect information about how users interact with the site. This may include information about which pages users visit most often and whether they receive error messages from specific pages. These “session status cookies” help Google improve its services to provide users with a better browsing experience.

Blocking or deleting these cookies will not render the site unusable.

These cookies can also be used to anonymously measure the effectiveness of PPC (pay per click) and affiliate advertising.

Example:

A cookie called “recently_watched_video_id_list” is used to help YouTube record which videos a particular browser has recently watched.

  1. Use of “Analytics” cookies

Google Analytics is a Google analytics tool that helps website owners and owners of www.visioncompliance.eu, as well as applications, to find out how their visitors use the options of their sites and applications. It may use a set of cookies to collect information and report site usage statistics without revealing the identity of individual users to Google. Google Analytics’ main cookie is “_ga”.

In addition to reporting site usage statistics, Google Analytics can be used, along with some of the advertising cookies described above, to display more relevant ads on Google products (such as Google search) and on the web, and to measure interactions with the ads we display.
