The objective of this Policy is to provide you, as a user of BentBox’s services, with clear and accessible information about the cookies that BentBox uses, the role they play in helping us provide the best possible experience to you and the choices you have when it comes to your cookie settings.
Cookies are text files which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. They are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org or www.youronlinechoices.eu.
The term cookie actually describes a range of technologies, including:
We’ll use the term cookie throughout this Policy to cover all of these technologies, but we’ll make sure we provide you with clear details about them all so that you can make informed choices about your cookie settings.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your user experience. They can also help to ensure that ads you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
There are a few different categories of cookies, including:
Session and Persistent Cookies
First and Third Party Cookies
Cookies also differ depending on the purpose they are used for, including:
|Strictly Necessary Cookies||These cookies are essential in order to enable you to use the features of our services, such as maintaining your playlist. Without these cookies, services you have asked for e.g., logging in, content viewing, cannot be provided.
In summary, these cookies enable services you have specifically asked for and make using our services possible.
|Performance Cookies||These cookies collect information about how visitors use our services, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies collect anonymous information on the pages visited. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how our services perform.
|Functionality Cookies||These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
These cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience.
If the same cookie is used for re-targeting they must be included in the ‘Targeting or advertising cookies’ category as well. It might also include cookies that are used to deliver a specific function, but where that function includes cookies used for behavioural/targeted advertising networks they must be included in the ‘Targeting or advertising cookies’ category as well as this category.
|Targeting or advertising Cookies||These cookies are used to deliver advertisements more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisations.
These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests.
BentBox uses the types of cookies identified in Section 1 above in the following ways:
|Strictly Necessary||These cookies are necessary to allow us to operate the BentBox Service as you have requested. For example, they let us recognise what type of user you are and then provide you with services accordingly.|
|Functional||These cookies let us operate the BentBox Service according to your preferences. For example, when you continue to use or come back to the BentBox Service, we can provide you with our services based on information you provide to us, such as remembering your username, how you have customised our services, and reminding you of content you have enjoyed or watched on the service previously.|
|Third Party||We don't allow cookies from any third party.|
We may occasionally make changes to this Policy.
When we make material changes to this Policy, we’ll provide you with prominent notice e.g., by displaying a prominent notice within the BentBox Service or by sending you an email. We may notify you in advance.
