Cookies policy

(Effective date: December 30, 2021)

Moondane (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the website (the “Service”).

This Cookies Policy explains how we use cookies and similar technologies. Whenever you use our website information may be collected through the use of cookies and similar technologies. We are committed to protecting the personal information collected when you use our Service.

We use your data to provide and improve the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this document.

If you have any comments, concerns or questions, including any requests to exercise your legal rights, you can contact us at [email protected].

What are cookies and similar technologies?

A cookie is a small data file, often including a unique identifier, which is sent to your computer, mobile phone or tablet device (referred to in this policy as a “Device”) by the web server so the website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the website. The cookie will collect information relating to your use of our Services, information about your Device, e.g. the Device’s IP address and browser type, broad location and, if you arrived at our site via a link from a third-party site, the URL of the linking page.

Similar technologies known as “local storage” may also be used by our Service as an alternative to cookies. This is a technology that is similar to cookies and performs functions such as caching data to enable us to improve our Service, allowing you to use online registration on our Service, tracking the activity to enable us and our advertisers to advertise to you in accordance with this policy and counting the number of people who view adverts on our Services. Where we refer to “Cookies” in this policy, we mean cookies or similar technologies.

Cookies record information about your online preferences and help us to tailor our Services to your interests. Information provided by Cookies can help us to analyse your use of our Service and help us to provide you with a better user experience.

In addition to Cookies, our Service may also use web beacons, clear GIFs, page tags and web bugs. These are all types of technology implemented by websites or third-party ad servers to allow them to analyse your website use and help improve your experience of the Service.

What are the different types of cookies?

  • Session cookies are only stored for the duration of your visit to a website and are deleted from your Device when you close your browser;
  • Persistent cookies are saved on your Device for a fixed period of time after the browser has closed and are used where we (or a third-party) need to identify you for a later browsing session. The fixed period of time is typically 30-90 days for targeting or behavioural advertising cookies and may be up to 26 months for analytical performance and measurement cookies;
  • First party cookies are set by the website you are visiting; and
  • Third party cookies are cookies used within our Service which are set by other organisations. These include cookies from external analytics services which help us to understand the use of our sites, or by advertisers so that they can track the effectiveness of their advertisements.

What are cookies used for?

Functional Cookies

Functional cookies are used to remember your preferences on our websites and to provide enhanced, personal features. The information collected by these cookies is usually anonymised, so we cannot identify you personally. Functional cookies do not track your internet usage or gather the information that could be used for selling advertising, but they do help with serving adverts.

Essential Cookies

These cookies are essential for the running of our Service. Without these cookies, parts of our websites would not function. These cookies do not track where you have been on the internet, do not save preferences beyond your current visit and do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes. These cookies are usually session cookies that will expire when you close your browsing session.

Analytical Performance and Measurement Cookies

Analytical performance cookies are used to monitor the performance of our Service. For example, to determine the number of page views and the number of unique users a website has. Web analytics services may be designed and operated by third parties. The information provided by these cookies allows us to analyse patterns of user behaviour and we use that information to enhance user experience or identify areas of the Service which may require maintenance. The information is anonymous (i.e. it cannot be used to identify you and does not contain personal information such as your name and email address) and is only used for statistical purposes.

Targeting or ‘Behavioural Advertising’ Cookies

These cookies, which may be placed on your Device by us or our trusted third-party service providers, hold information about your visit to the website and use that information to provide you with content or advertising which is tailored to your interests. This is often called online behavioural advertising (OBA) and is done by grouping together shared interests based upon web browsing history. Your web browsing history can be used to infer things about you (e.g. your age, gender, etc.), and this information may also be used to make advertising on websites more relevant to you. Without these cookies, content and advertisements you encounter may be less relevant to you and your interests.

How do we use cookies?

We use Cookies in combination with other information we maintain for a number of purposes, including the following:

Essential and Functional Cookies

We use these cookies to enable certain online functionality including:

  • Accessing the information you provide to us, so we can contact you regarding your visit, or remember the last page you visited on the Service;
  • Maintaining your settings while you are browsing our website;
  • Supporting security measures and assisting in identifying possible fraudulent or abusive activities.

Analytical Performance and Measurement Cookies

We use these cookies to measure users’ behaviour to better develop our Service. By using analytics services provided by third-party Google Analytics, we can analyse and measure which pages are viewed and how long for and which links are opened. We may use this information to provide more content that is of interest to you. We also use this analysis to report on our performance and to advertise our Service.

Targeting and Behavioural Advertising Cookies

We use these cookies to:

  • Measure general user behaviour across our sites and third-party sites to build a profile based on users browsing patterns so that we can target advertising to users that will be more relevant to users’ interests.
  • Keep track of the number of users who saw a particular article or visited a particular page of our website to analyse the effectiveness of our content.
  • Manage online advertising and revenue share arrangements. This will enable us to manage our relationships with the advertisers by, for example, tracking how many unique users followed a referral link.

We cannot control nor do we have access to any Cookies placed on your computer by third-party advertisers and sponsors.

Other Cookies

You may notice on some pages of our websites that cookies have been set that are not related to us. We do not control the use of these third-party cookies and cannot access them due to the way that cookies work, as cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them.

Please check the third-party websites for more information about these cookies.

We may also include web beacons in our emails to track the success of our marketing campaigns. This means that if you open an email from us we can see which of the pages of our website you have visited. Our web beacons do not store additional information on your device but, by communicating with our cookies on your device, they can tell us when you have opened our email.

How can users manage or opt out of cookies?

We will still know how many of our emails are opened and we will automatically receive your IP address, and a unique identifier of your Device; but we will not identify you as an individual.
