About this (rather boring) cookie policy

This Cookie Policy explains what cookies are and how we use them. You should read this policy to understand what cookies are, how we use them, the types of cookies we use i.e, the information we collect using cookies and how that information is used and how to control the cookie preferences. For further information on how we use, store and keep your personal data secure, see our Privacy Policy (another rather exciting article).

 

To further complicate matters, you can at any time change or withdraw your consent from the Cookie Declaration by visiting this page and clicking the fabulous “manage your consent”-link approximately a paragraph below.

 

Learn more about who we are, how you can contact us (in legal matters… I mean there are easier ways than reading a privacy policy) and how we process personal data in our (drumroll…) Privacy Policy.

Your consent applies to the following domains: closethunk.com (as if this was needed.)

Here is your standing as of now you beautiful beast:

 

 

What are cookies? (still not the edible ones)

Cookies are small text files that are used to store small pieces of information (we use around 50. Facebook, Google and Pinterest seem to own most of them). The cookies are stored on your device when the website is loaded on your browser. These cookies help us make the website function properly, make the website more secure, provide better user experience, and understand how the website performs and to analyze what works and where it needs improvement (aka what did you do, where did you go, how can we make you come back and what did you say about us in social media).

 

How do we use cookies?

As most of the online services (if you find a website with 0 cookies, please send a link to us), our website deploys first-party and third-party cookies for a number of purposes (except eating). The first-party cookies are mostly necessary for the website to function the right way (and this is actually true), and they do not collect any of your personally identifiable data. The third-party cookies used on our websites (Google, Facebook Pinterest, Twitter, Hubspot etc etc.) are used mainly for understanding how the website performs, how you interact with our website, keeping our services secure, providing advertisements that are relevant to you, and all in all providing you with a better and improved user experience and help speed up your future interactions with our website (this clause means that if you see our ad in Facebook after visiting this site, it wasn’t an accident)

 

 

What types of cookies do we use ?

Essential: Some cookies are essential for you to be able to experience the full functionality of our site (like payment gateways). They allow us to maintain user sessions and prevent any security threats. They do not collect or store any personal information. For example, these cookies allow you to log-in to your account and add products to your basket and checkout securely.

Statistics: These cookies store information like the number of visitors to the website, the number of unique visitors, which pages of the website have been visited, the source of the visit etc. These data help us understand and analyze how well the website performs and where it needs improvement. (As if you didn’t know that business owners would like to know which products are popular)

Marketing: Our website displays advertisements (No we don’t… I mean if you count showing our own products as advertisements, then yes). These cookies are used to personalize the advertisements that we show to you so that they are meaningful to you. These cookies also help us keep track of the efficiency of these ad campaigns.
The information stored in these cookies may also be used by the third-party ad providers to show you ads on other websites on the browser as well (YUP! This is what we do).

Functional: These are the cookies that help certain non-essential functionalities on our website. These functionalities include embedding content like videos or sharing contents on the website on social media platforms (You see the social media bar on the left side of the browser… that).

Preferences: These cookies help us store your settings and browsing preferences like language preferences so that you have a better and efficient experience on future visits to the website (Meaning if you change currency, there is a good chance we remember it the next time you come back).

How can I control the cookie preferences ?

Should you decide to change your preferences later through your browsing session, you have to come back to this page and click manage your consent-link. This will display the consent notice again enabling you to change your preferences or withdraw your consent entirely. In addition to this, different browsers provide different methods to block and delete cookies used by websites. You can change the settings of your browser to block/delete the cookies.
