What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small files sent and stored on your computer by the websites you visit. Cookies are stored in your browser’s file directory. The next time you visit the site, your browser will read the cookie and retransmit the information to the website or entity that originally created the cookie. To learn more about these technologies and how they work, visit, for example, the allaboutcookies.org website.
These cookies are essential for our websites to function and are the key to ensuring you have a smooth experience.
You can browse without interruptions, for example by remembering the selected language and country and preserving authentication to the restricted areas of the site. These cookies also remember the products you are interested in when you are redirected to an Operator’s site for a possible purchase.
These cookies allow us to improve our websites by looking at how they are used.
We conduct analytical profiling to understand, for example, the unique users who read a particular article (to know what is most popular) or if a video file has been viewed or abandoned halfway. We also look at where content is accessed so we know how to organize our sites, for an optimal user experience.
These cookies help make the content as personalized as possible, for example by showing you targeted banners and related suggestions.
We examine the type of referral used to reach our sites, such as an email campaign or a link from a referral site, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of our promotions and advertising campaigns.
How can I manage cookies?
You can examine the options available to manage cookies in your browser. The browser can be used to manage cookies related to basic functions, site improvement, personalization and advertising. Different browsers use different ways to disable cookies, but they are usually found under the Tools or Options menu. You can also consult your browser’s Help menu. In addition to managing cookies, browsers usually allow you to control files similar to cookies, such as Local Shared Objects, for example by enabling the browser’s privacy mode. By disabling cookies, some parts of the Tek Pro websites may not be used. If you delete your cookies from your browser, you may need to remember to reinstall the cookies you have opted out for.
How long do we keep your information?
It depends on the types of cookies. Session cookies expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies, including Local Shared Objects (“Flash cookies”), have typical expiration dates ranging from two months up to a couple of years.
