Principles of using cookies
What are cookies?
The temporary cookies are deleted when the relevant website is closed. Temporary cookies may allow a website to remember you while you are browsing, but this cookie will then be deleted as soon as you log out or close the website or your internet browser. For example, temporary cookies may be used to enable shopping cart features to remember if you have added an item to your cart while browsing and searching for other items you wish to purchase on that website.
A persistent cookie will remember you for a while. During this time (it can be minutes, days or months) it remains stored on your device or in a web browser after you have logged out or closed your browser. For example, persistent cookies may be used to remember whether you have selected certain preferences on a website (eg your choice of language).
Promedeus uses both temporary and persistent cookies. Cookies and other similar technologies are used by Promedeus for several different reasons. Cookies are sometimes necessary for our website to function properly and to allow the proper functioning of functionality such as shopping carts and secure logins. Cookies allow us to count the visitors of our website and obtain information on how they use our website and its features, thus enabling us to continuously improve the user comfort when using it. Cookies can also allow us to tailor the content of the website to your preferences. Details about cookies used by Promedeus are given below.
Cookies we use
Cookies that may be used by Promedeus can be categorized as follows:
These cookies allow the website to remember the options you have chosen (including user role authentication, acceptance reservations / disclaimers and language), your username, if relevant, and any customization you have made (for example, in terms of font size) or personalization options within your online activities. They can also be used to provide certain services that you can use, such as video content or allowing blog comments.
We may also use media players such as Adobe Flash Player or FlowPlayer to provide special content, such as video clips or animations. In this case, local shared objects (known as "Flash Cookies") are used to recognize your device in order to provide features such as remembering your player's settings and preferences. We may also place content on our website from our official YouTube channel which, when clicked on it, will cause YouTube to place cookies on your device.
Analytical / performance cookies
These cookies are used to manage and improve the functioning of the website and can help us identify problems that you may have with the use of our online services. These cookies can be used to facilitate online surveys, recording the number of visitors and other measurements of web analytics. They are not used to target you online. Without these cookies, we will have limited information about the performance of our website and we will not be able to ensure that browsing is more convenient and enjoyable for you. Adobe Analytics and Google Analytics retention periods are set to a standard period of 25 months.
