Local Storage or Server Side
Cookies work in different ways, with some more common ways being to store data within your device (local storage), or extract and collect data from your device and send it to an external server. Both local and server-side storage can be controlled by TCEU (a first party), or another organization (which we call third party), and this is where we get the names ‘first’ and ‘third-party’ cookies.
Types of Cookies; Essential or Non-Essential
TCEU needs to ensure that its website works and that, for example, the pages load in a reasonable time, it protects its website from malicious attacks, and the website provides the functions that it states it does example, if you complete a feedback form on our website, we need to ensure that this feedback form can be submitted. For these purposes we need to use essential cookies, that means we cannot do these things without using them. Where we use essential cookies, we do not require your consent, although we must tell you that we are using them.
If you, by giving your Consent, allow us to use non-essential cookies, these will be for any other purpose outside the ones that are essential for providing the service/website. These purposes might be something as simple as counting visitors to our website, or analyzing where are our visitors come from, to understanding which pages most are looked at. This is very useful for us, as if we see visitors are coming mostly from other countries, it might indicate for instance, a need to provide information in multiple languages.
Categories of Cookies
Companies often categorize their cookies to allow visitors to easily understand why the cookies are being used. For TCEU, the main categories are:
We analyze how are visitors use our website, this can be pages visited, how long is spent on a webpage page, the most looked at pages, where you have clicked, your location, as well as devices, and technical information about your device used to access our website. We use this information to give us insights so we can make improvements to our website and services.
Preferences / Functional
TCEU may offer the choice to set your preferences, such as font size and language.
TCEU does not need to identify who you are for these purposes, and for TCEU you would be an anonymous visitor. However, if you have agreed to third party cookies on our website, such as Google, then Google may have other information about you, which they may use to identify you.
Withdrawing Your Consent
If TCEU has set cookies in your device, and can identify you as a user, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be able to delete all data collected on the basis of your Consent.
However, in addition to the above, you, as the user, are the only party that can delete the cookies from your browser.
