Learn about our usage of cookies as well as user’s consent as to the usage of tracking and third-party cookies.
What are cookies?
At various points on our website, we use "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work in a better more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (for example by remembering preference settings).
Cookies and personal data
In general, no personal data is stored in the cookies that the Selwood website uses. That way, none of the cookies can be attributed directly to you or anyone else without your prior consent. An identification number is assigned to a cookie when it is activated. So the cookie technology only supplies us with information of a user with a certain Cookie-ID (pseudonym). A combination of a Cookie-ID and personal data of the user (e.g. name, email address etc.) and thus a direct attribution of the information collected by or stored in the cookie to a certain user only takes place if the user has given his unambiguous prior consent. For example, in order to facilitate secure online access so that you do not have to retype your user ID and password each time you visit the site, your user ID and password can be saved in cookies to make logging in to our website easier and faster.
Types and purposes of cookies used by Selwood
Cookies are created when a user's browser loads a particular website. The website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file. Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this file to the website's server enabling the website to load faster and remember your past preferences. Computer Cookies are created not just by the website the user is browsing but also by other websites that run ads, widgets, or other elements on the page being loaded. These cookies regulate how the ads appear or how the widgets and other elements function on the page.
Necessary cookies enable core functionality such as security, network management, and accessibility. You may disable these by changing your browser settings, but this may affect how the website functions.
