Depending on the information cookies contain and the way your computer system is used, they can be used to recognize the user and improve the service.
What type of cookies are used by WO5C?
This website uses Google Analytics Cookies:WO5C uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service developed by Google, Inc. that allows for the measurement and analysis of navigation on websites. When you visit the Website, we will be able to collect and store general data that cannot be identified on the pages you access: your general geographical situation (the city, for example, but not the street), the device you are using, an anonymous version of your IP address and the address of the Websites you access on the WO5C site.
This website uses Persistent Cookies:
Persistent Cookies help the Website to remember your information and settings in order to offer you a faster and more convenient access to the Website.
Some features of the Website are made possible by persistent cookies, for instance identifying the user and selecting the language and preferences of the user. During your first visit, the Website is presented in default mode. During your visit, you will select your preferences and these will be kept in memory for your next visit to the site through the use of persistent cookies.
Apart from that, we have to store the email address and User’s data that you choose when you subscribe and create an account. We can use these data to protect WO5C and its Users against spams, viruses, identity theft, or harmful activities, and understand how people use the Website. Given the importance of these data, the storage option cannot be disabled by Users. The data contained in the History will be kept for a period of time that cannot exceed the maximum legal duration of data retention.
Users behaviour: WO5C uses an anonymous version of Google Analytics to collect general and global information on Users’ behaviour. Google can use this information in order to evaluate your use of the Website, compile reports for us on the global activity of the Website, and provide other services related to this activity. We can, for instance, use these data to recommend to you links or contacts within the network. Google can also transfer these data to third parties when it is required to do so by law, or when these third parties process these data on behalf of Google. As far as we know, the information collected by Google on the WO5C Website is gathered in such a way that neither WO5C, nor Google can easily trace registered information back to a single User.
How can you manage your cookies?
WO5C is unique in the sense that we give our Users the possibility to deactivate Google Analytics on the User’s settings page. We also comply with the settings of your browser: “Do Not Track”. By selecting either option, we will do our best not to send data (though they are anonymous) on your User behaviour to Google or any other service provider. We would like to bring your attention to the fact that there are other services, which are beyond the reasonable control of WO5C (including Google, the web browser Google Chrome, the operating system Android, and YouTube) that can cooperate with Google to send information about you, even though you asked not to send anything through our services.
