What is a cookie ?
Cookies are small text files that are sent to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies on iQone 's websites perform many functions, such as allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, save your preferences, and improve your overall website experience.
EU Directive 2009/136 / EC states that we are authorized to register cookies on your computer to the extent that they are essential to the functioning of this website. However, for all other types of cookies, we must ask for your permission.
iQone 's websites may use certain nonessential cookies. Our goal is not to track users or identify them, but to gain useful information about how sites are used, so we can improve them for our users. Without the knowledge gained from the systems using these cookies, we would not be able to provide such a quality of service.
The types of cookies we use
If you make a choice of language, font or specific version of the site (eg contrasting version), we use "user interface customization cookies". Once the options are selected, you will not need to specify your preferences the next time you visit the site.
If you use sections of the site that require registration to access the content, we will install an "authentication cookie" on your computer. You can come back without having to login again.
If Adobe Flash is installed on your computer (this is the case for most computers) and you use video players, we record a "flash cookie" on your computer. These cookies store the data needed to play video or audio content and save the user's preferences.
iQone likes to understand how visitors use their websites by using web analytics services. They count the number of visitors and inform us about their overall behavior - for example, they spot the keywords of search engines leading the visitor to our site, record the average duration of navigation on the site or count the average number of pages viewed by a user. To this end, we install a "first-party analytic cookie" on your computer.
We are also likely to use services such as Google Analytics to track web statistics. In this case, Google will install a "third-party cookie" on your computer. This is also the case when we use Google Maps.
All data collected using these cookies will be stored and managed by iQone or one of its trusted affiliates in countries where iQone is present.
