COOKIES POLICY

The Biovene website, www.Biovene (the “Website”), and other websites containing Biovene in the name (including but not limited to getaways.Biovene.co.uk, goods.Biovene, etc.), are operated by Roy Roger Consumer Healthcare SIA (“Roy Roger”, “we,” “us,” “our”). This cookies policy (“Cookies Policy”) is intended to be read in conjunction with our Privacy Policy and our conditions.

We have set forth the following Cookies Policy to explain the types of cookies and other technologies used on our Website and our platform, as well as what those cookies are used for. Please note that we are unable to offer our Website or our Services without serving some of our own cookies and/or similar technologies on your device. You therefore consent to our use of Biovene cookies when you use our Website and Services.

 

1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small text files located in your browser directory. When a website is accessed, a cookie that is placed on a device will send information to the browser. Cookies are extremely common and used on a number of websites. This is because cookies allow the website publisher to do useful things; for example, a cookie would permit a website operator to find out whether a computer (and probably its user) has visited the site previously. In general, the purpose of cookies is to i

mprove the performance of the website and the user’s experience in using that website, though cookies may also serve advertisements (which we explain below).

 

2. FIRST PARTY AND THIRD PARTY COOKIES

We may place Biovene cookies on your device through our Website. Cookies placed by us are called first party cookies. First party cookies are cookies that are specific to the Website that created them or another Biovene domain or sub-domain). Their use enables us to operate an efficient service and to track the patterns of behaviour of visitors to the Website.

We also allow third parties to place cookies on your device. Third party cookies allow the Website to serve you cookies that seek to make advertisements more relevant to you by tailoring the advertisement to your user preferences (such as by the type of product  you have purchased from the Website). The difference between a first party cookie and a third party cookie relates to the control of the party who serves the cookie. While we allow third parties access to the Website to place these cookies on users’ devices, we do not retain control over the information supplied by the cookies, nor do we retain access to that data. This information is controlled wholly by that third-party in accordance with their respective privacy policy.

 

3. SESSION AND PERSISTENT COOKIES

Our Website may place session and persistent cookies on your device. Whereas a first party and third party cookie relate to the party controlling the initial placement of the cookie on your device, the difference between a session and a persistent cookie relates to the length of time a cookie will last. Session cookies are cookies that typically last until you close your internet browser. When you end your browser session, the cookie expires.

Persistent cookies, as the name implies, are continuous and will last after you close your browser. This allows for quicker and often more convenient access to our Website. For example, a persistent cookie which our Website reads from your device is the city you are subscribed to. This ensures that once the cookie has been placed, when you access the Website in the future you are automatically directed to your relevant city page.

 

4. OTHER TECHNOLOGIES

There are other technologies that perform a similar function to cookies. These include web beacons and clear gifs. These technologies are often used in conjunction with cookies to help a Website operator understand its users better.

 

5. COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES ON THE BIOVENE WEBSITE

Our Website may serve you cookies and similar technologies in a number of ways and for a variety of purposes. In general, these include:

• To enable and streamline the basic functioning of the Website and Services across multiple webpages and browser sessions;
• To simplify your use of our Website and Services;
• To monitor, analyse and improve the performance and effectiveness of our Website and our Services; and
• To serve you advertisements that are customised and relevant to you.

It is our aim to be transparent and clear regarding our use of cookies and other technologies. We’ve therefore set forth in this section the cookies relevant to your use of our Website and Services. Where relevant, we have also set forth a small table which provides the name of the cookie that may be placed on your device, as well as the duration that cookie will remain on your device (unless deleted or removed by you prior to the end of the duration of the cookie).

 

5.1. WEBSITE PERFORMANCE

We may place, or we may permit a third party to place, cookies on your device in order to ensure the Website functions properly. This also helps us to monitor and analyse the performance of our Website. We may also use web beacons, clear gifs or similar technologies to measure Website usage and track the effectiveness of our campaigns.

 

5.2. GOOGLE ANALYTICS

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google that places cookies on your device. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website (including your IP address, which is where you are found on the internet) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on .

 

6. COOKIE TRANSPARENCY

We want our use of cookies and other technologies to be as transparent as possible. As discussed above, we are unable to offer our Website or our Services without the Biovene first party cookies and other Biovene technologies we have described above.

If you do not want to have cookies placed on your device by third parties, many of them offer ways to opt-out. Please note, however, that opting-out via third parties is outside of our control. Where possible, we have provided you with a
