  4. Cookies, Log Data and similar technologies

    When the User interacts with the Platform, Expanding Web may also collect information from its activities in the Platform through the usage of Cookies, Log Data and other similar technologies.

    By using those technologies Expanding Web aims to use this information for the purpose of analytics and monitoring of the effectiveness of Expanding Web’s performance, including the collection of the aggregate Platform usage data (such as the overall number of the Platform’s visitors or pages viewed).

    The information mentioned above may include:

    1. information about the User’s interactions with the Platform (sessions);
    2. technical information about the User’s device hardware and software that may include the types of devices the User uses in order to access the Platform, device IDs or identifiers, device attributes, network connection type, browser type, language, internet service provider, access times, type of requests and their details.

    Cookies. Expanding Web may collect Personal Data from other sources, through the use of ”cookies”. A cookie is a small text file stored on the User’s computer that contains information that helps the website to identify and track the visitor. Cookies do not contain viruses nor occupy space on the hard drive.

    Expanding Web uses two types of cookies: “session cookies” and cookies that are saved permanently on the User’s device i.e. “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are never stored permanently on the User’s computer and disappear when the User closes the session. When the User visits the Platform, Expanding Web’s web server assigns the User’s browser a unique identifier string so as not to confuse the User with other visitors. The second type of cookies save files permanently on the User’s device and this is used to track how visitors move around in the Platform. This is only used to offer visitors better services and support. The text files can be deleted. The information stored on the User’s device is only a unique number, without any connection to Personal Information.

    To opt out of cookies, the User can alter the settings on their internet browser to accept or reject the Platform from using cookies. However this may affect functionality of the Platform.

    Expanding Web uses a tracking software system to monitor the User’s patterns and the Platform usage to help Expanding Web develop the design and layout of the Platform. This software does not enable Expanding Web to capture any of the User’s Personal Data. The User’s Personal Data will not be shared, sold, rented or disclosed other than as described in this Privacy and Cookies Policy. The use of both types of cookies (session and persistent ones) and log data files is based on Expanding Web’s legitimate interest (article 6.1. f) of the GDPR), consisting in proper operation of the Platform, creating statistics and analyzing them in order to optimize the Platform.

The data saved in the server logs is not associated with a specific person using the Platform and is not used by Expanding Web to identify the User.

    Social media. The Website uses plug-ins and other social tools provided by social networking sites, such as Facebook or Instagram. By displaying a website containing such a plug-in, your browser will establish a direct connection with the servers of social network administrators (service providers). The content of the plug-in is transferred by the given service provider directly to your browser and integrated with the website. Due to this integration, service providers receive information that your browser has displayed our Website, even if you do not have a profile with a given service provider or are not currently logged in to it. Such information (along with your IP address) is sent by your browser directly to the server of a given service provider and stored there. If you have logged in to one of the social networking sites or an external service provider’s site, the indicated entities will be able to directly assign a visit to the Website to your profile on a given social networking site. If you use a specific plugin, e.g. by clicking the "Like" or "Share" button, the relevant information will also be sent directly to the server of the given service provider and stored there. In addition, this information will be published on a given social network and will be shown to people added as your contacts.
