COOKIES POLICY

How we use cookies and similar technologies

Like most websites, we use cookies and similar technologies including web beacons, embedded scripts and e-tags (together referred to as “cookies”, unless otherwise stated) to provide users an efficient experience in using the Site.

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your computer or mobile device by your web browser. It is a tool that stores information about website visits, recognizes you and your preferences each time you visit the Site, ensures functionality of the Site and enables us to provide the Services.

A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the Site uses to track the pages you have visited, but the only Personal Information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of the Site use cookies to track user traffic patterns. DPF does this in order to determine the usefulness of the Site information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information. DPF does not correlate this information with data about individual users, nor does it share this information or sell it to any third-party. By using our Site, you accept our use of these cookies. If your browser settings are set up as ‘Do Not Track’, we will not use cookies and tracking technologies.

Some additional things you should know about our use of cookies:

  • You may encounter cookies from our third-party service providers, that we have allowed on our Site that assist us with various aspects of our Site operations and services, such as Google Analytics.
  • If you link to a third-party website from the Site, you also may encounter cookies from third parties on certain pages of the websites. For example, if you view a web page posted as a link from our Site, there may be a cookie placed by that web page.

We use various types of cookies, including session cookies, persistent cookies, local shared objects, pixels, GIFS and other tracking technologies, such as third-party tags, session and persistent technologies, first and third-party cookies. Cookies can be persistent by remaining on your computer until you delete them or be based on your browsing session where they delete once you close your browser. First party cookies are used and controlled by us to provide services on the Site.

Purposes of Cookies

We may use cookies for a variety of purposes, including providing you the Service you have requested, to enhance your online experience, for example, by viewing preferences from a previous use of our Site, for when you later return to the Site. In particular, our use of cookies falls into three categories:

  • Strictly necessary cookies: these are essential in order to enable you to move around the Site and use its features, and are usually used to maintain an anonymous user session by the server. Without these cookies, the Services you have asked for cannot be provided. These cookies will be dropped and used even if you do not consent to the use of cookies.
  • Performance cookies: these cookies are used to improve how our Site works and to distinguish unique users by assigning a randomly generated number as a client identifier. They collect information about how users use our Site, for instance which pages are visited most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
  • Social media & Advertising cookies: our Site allows third parties to download cookies to your device. Social media cookies offer the possibility to connect you to your social networks and share content from our Site through social media. For example, you will see embedded “share” buttons on some pages of our Site. These enable you to easily share content through a number of popular social networks (e.g. Facebook, Twitter). When you click on one of these buttons, a cookie may be set by the service you have chosen to share content through. These third-party cookies are not under our control, so we suggest that you check the respective privacy policies for these external services to help you to understand what data these organizations hold about you and what they do with it.
    Advertising cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advert as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They remember that you have visited the Site and this information may be shared with other organizations, e.g. advertisers. Deselecting these cookies may result in seeing advertising that is not as relevant to you or you not being able to link effectively with social networks and/or not allowing you to share content on social media.

Analytics Services*

This Site uses Google Analytics to collect information about how users use the Site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Site will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case IP-anonymization is activated on this Site, your IP address will be partially used within the European Union or just in the European Economic Area if it is used by other parties. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States, and then shortened so it is only partially used there. The IP-anonymization is active on this Site.

Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this Site for the purpose of analyzing your use of the Site, compiling reports on Site activity for Site operators and providing them other services relating to Site activity and internet usage.
