What are Web Beacons?
Qilimanjaro occasionally advertises on third party websites. As part of the effort to track the success of Qilimanjaro’s advertising campaigns, sometimes a visitor identification technology is used such as “web beacons” or “action tags”, which count visitors who have visited the Web Site after being exposed to an Qilimanjaro banner advertisement on a third party site. This technology is not used to access the User’s personal information and is only used to compile aggregate statistics about visitors to the Web Site to evaluate the effectiveness of the ads.
What is a cookie?
A “cookie” is a technology that allows the Web Site to store information sheets (an “identifier”) on the browser used by the Web Site while the User on the Web Site. Cookies are sent back to the Web Site on each subsequent visit, or to another Web page that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are used to make the Web Site work, or to make it work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the Web Site.
Cookies perform many different tasks, such as allowing the User to navigate between pages efficiently, remembering preferences and generally improving the User’s experience. Cookies can indicate, for example, whether a User has visited the Web Site before or is a new visitor. They can also help ensure that the advertisements viewed online are more relevant to the User and their interests.
There are two broad categories of cookies:
First-party cookies, served directly by Qilimanjaro to the User’s device.
Third-party cookies, which are served by a third party on behalf of Qilimanjaro.
Cookies can remain on the User’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are “session cookies”, which means that they only exist while the browser is open. They are automatically deleted once the User closes the browser. Other cookies are “permanent cookies”, which means that they survive after the browser is closed. They can be used by the Web Site to recognise the User’s computer or mobile device when the User opens the browser and browses the Internet again.
What types of cookies are used?
Essential/strictly necessary cookies, which are essential for the operation of the Web Site.
Performance Cookies, which help measure the performance of the Web Site and improve the User’s experience. No personal data is stored when using performance cookies, and only the information collected through these cookies is used in an aggregate and anonymous manner;
Functionality Cookies, which allow us to improve the User’s experience (for example, by remembering any settings the user has selected);
Advertising/targeting cookies, which we use to track User activity and sessions in order to provide a more personalized service, and (in the case of advertising cookies) which are set by the third parties with whom the advertising campaigns are executed and allow the provision of ads relevant to the User; and
Social Media Cookies, which enable the sharing of content on social media channels, such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
In addition, cookies are also used on certain pages of the Web Site to communicate with third party data providers in order to extrapolate the User’s digital behavior. This helps to understand and target more relevant advertising in the future. The information received is all aggregated and anonymous, but will include statistics such as demographics, online behavior, product interests and lifestyle. The targeting and tracking cookies are provided through trusted third party providers. If the User needs more information about the providers and how these cookies work, he can contact us.
