Cookie Policy

This Cookies Policy describes how cookies and similar technologies are used on our websites and web properties (e.g., widgets and applications) that contain or link to this Cookies Policy (which are referred to in this policy collectively and individually as the “Site”). It is intended to operate with and be read together with the cookies banner and privacy preference center that link to it.

“We” (or “us” or “our”) means Yana Media Ltd or the relevant member of our group that operates the specific Site (as indicated on the Site or in our Privacy Policy).

We may change this Cookies Policy from time to time, so please check back periodically for updates. This Cookies Policy was last revised on the date specified at the top of the policy.

1. What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of information that the Site’s server transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your device so that the contents of that cookie can be retrieved and read.

Cookies do not usually record your name or specific contact details, but some cookies may assign an identifier to an individual. To the extent that cookies collect and process personal data, this is handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

There are other technologies we use on the Site that work in a similar way to cookies by storing or accessing information on a user’s device, such as:

  • HTML5 local storage – this is mainly used to store and retrieve data in HTML pages from the same domain.

  • Local Shared Objects – this is commonly called a “Flash cookie” and is a piece of data that websites which use Adobe Flash may store on a user's computer, typically to support website advertisements and videos.

  • Device fingerprinting – this is a way of identifying a unique device by combining certain attributes of the device, without necessarily having to know the IP address or setting cookies.

  • Scripts – these are lists of commands executed by programs or scripting engines, which are used to generate Web pages and to automate computer processes.

  • Tracking pixels / web beacons – these are small pieces of code loaded when a user visits a website, which can be used to track site visits, user behaviour, ad impressions and other online activities.

  • Plugins – these are add-ons for a program that adds functionality to it – for example, a plugin is used to enable you to watch a video on the Site.

2. How we use Cookies

We use a combination of strictly necessary cookies, functional cookies, targeting cookies and performance cookies, as described in the privacy preference centre.

We currently use both session and persistent cookies on our Site – session cookies expire at the end of your browser session; persistent cookies last for longer.

We generally request cookies consent every 12 months. If you close your online shop account, we will erase all cookies data associated with your account within 2 hours. If you opt out of marketing, we will erase all cookies data used for marketing purposes within 1 month. 

 

3. How do I change my cookies settings?

You can change your cookie preferences at any time by clicking on the “Cookies Settings” link that is available from any webpage. You can then adjust the available sliders to ‘On’ or ‘Off’, then clicking ‘Confirm My Choices’. You may need to refresh your page for your settings to take effect. You may also be given the option to change your cookies settings if you are visiting a different area of the Site that has different functionality or if it would optimise your online experience to choose different settings (but this will always be optional).

Please be aware that, if cookies are disabled, not all features of the Site may operate as intended and this may impact your online experience.

The browser settings of most web browsers also allow some control of most cookies. To find out more about cookies, including how to check what cookies have been set, visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.

You can manage cookies on popular browsers by visiting their developers’ sites, such as:

  • Microsoft Edge

  • Mozilla Firefox

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer

  • Opera

  • Apple Safari

Cookie List

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Those cookies are set by us and called first-party cookies. We also use third-party cookies – which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting – for our advertising and marketing efforts. More specifically, we use cookies and other tracking technologies for the following purposes:
