Cookies are divided into four categories: 1) essential cookies, 2) statistics and service development cookies, 3) personalisation cookies, and 4) marketing and advertising cookies.
What are cookies and what are they used for?
A cookie is a small text file that the browser stores on the user’s terminal device when using websites. Cookies contain a unique identifier that allows us to identify and count the various browsers visiting our website.
We also use cookie-like technology (local storage) and tracking codes (such as pixels) to store similar identifiers. In this information, cookies refer to all technologies similar to cookies.
Cookies allow us to collect information about how and when our services are used: for example, where and when the user has accessed the services, what websites they have browsed, what highlighted products the user has viewed and clicked on, what browser they use, and their screen resolution and their device’s operating system and version.
The user cannot be identified directly by means of cookies in S Group’s services. If the user logs in to our service, we may link the digital footprint data collected through cookies to the identified user in accordance with the data protection legislation.
From time to time, our websites contain our partners’ tracking codes that are downloaded from their servers. Tracking codes are used for advertising and marketing, and they help us develop statistics on how often an ad is clicked and how often it leads to a purchase on our or the advertiser’s website.
Third-party cookies may track the user over S Group’s websites and monitor their online behaviour beyond S Group’s websites. The user can control the use of these cookies on S Group’s websites through their cookie preferences.
A list of cookies used for different purposes and their maximum storage times can be found at the second layer of the cookie consent query, which can be opened by clicking on “manage your settings” at the first layer. The cookie consent query can be opened by clicking on “change your cookie settings” or a similar link on the website.
S Group allows the user to manage cookies.
However, cookies that are necessary for the operation of our services are enabled by default and cannot be disabled.
The digital footprint of the user logged in collected to the co-op and customer register can be inspected at any time by logging in to the S user account. Information about processing the personal data contained in the co-op member and customer register can be found here.
