Cookie Policy

15.05.2019

Our website donkin.eu collects and stores cookies. Cookies are small text files that are saved to the user’s device for a certain amount of time when the user visits the website. By their very nature, cookies do not require personal data to be used and do not identify the users’ personality. Cookies collect information about how the user uses the website to improve its performance and enable other functionalities without identifying a particular user.

This Cookie Policy (“Policy”) lists and explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of cookies. This Policy specifically explains how we at Donkin and Partners EOOD and the users of our website deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.

I. What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ‘session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and perform essential functions. We use cookies, including cookies by Google Analytics and WordPress services, to obtain certain user information about how and when certain pages of our website are visited, as well as the number of visitors.

We do not use advertising cookies.

You can set your browser to refuse, remove or block cookies, or to tell you when a cookie is generated. For more information on cookies, visit: www.allaboutcookies.org.

II. What cookies do we use?

The cookies we use are necessary for the website to perform its functions. They allow you to surf and use its basic features, usually installed in response to your actions for a service request. Specifically, the cookies we use are:

Strictly Necessary – necessary for our website to operate and cannot be turned off by our systems. Typically, they are only set in response to your actions such as service requests, setting your preferences, filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you to these cookies, but in that case, some parts of our website will not work.

Functionality – used to store preferences set by users, such as language preferences, for example.

Performance – collect information on how users interact with our website. These details are only used to improve how the website functions.

III. How to control cookies?

Visitors have the right to restrict the use of cookies or to completely disable cookies. Most browsers offer ways to control the behavior of cookies, such as the length of their storage – either through built-in functionality or by using third-party plug-ins and applications.

To learn more about how to manage and delete cookies, you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Some special cookie denial programs can be found here:

Quantcast – https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/

Google Analytics – https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

It is important to keep in mind that limiting or deactivating the use and storage of cookies can limit the functionality of the website or completely prevent it from working properly.

IV. Google Analytics cookies (with anonymization function)

Google Analytics is a tool that helps us measure how users interact with our website content. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides us with JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages / interactions with the website. Google Analytics supports three JavaScript libraries (tags) for measuring website usage: gtag.jsanalytics.js, and ga.js. The following sections describe how each use cookies.

gtag.js and analytics.js

_ga 2 years Used to distinguish users.
_gid 24 hours Used to distinguish users.
_gat 1 minute Used to throttle request rate. If Google Analytics is deployed via Google Tag Manager, this cookie will be named _dc_gtm_<property-id>.
AMP_TOKEN 30 seconds to 1 year Contains a token that can be used to retrieve a Client ID from AMP Client ID service. Other possible values indicate opt-out, inflight request or an error retrieving a Client ID from AMP Client ID service.

ga.js

__utma 2 years from set/update Used to distinguish users and sessions. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and no existing __utma cookies exists. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.
__utmt 10 minutes Used to throttle request rate.
__utmb 30 mins from set/update Used to determine new sessions/visits. The cookie is created when the javascript library executes and no existing __utmb cookies exists. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.

__utmv 2 years from set/update Used to store visitor-level custom variable data. This cookie is created when a developer uses the _setCustomVar method with a visitor level custom variable. This cookie was also used for the deprecated _setVar method. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.
