A cookie is a small text file placed by an online provider (such as zorpia.com) on the device of visitors to their website. Cookies can collect information about visitors’ habits in using that website through logging the activity of their device with respect to the site, for example when it comes to online purchases.
When you visit our site four types of cookies may be placed upon your device. These are: First-Party, Third-Party, Session and Persistent cookies.
First-party cookies are cookies placed on your device directly by us. They could include cookies such as session and persistent cookies (explained below). We use first-party cookies to track your navigation behaviour on our site, for example for marketing and analytics purposes.
Third-party cookies are cookies placed on your device by our commercial partners. Again, they could include cookies such as session and persistent cookies (explained below). Our commercial partners use third-party cookies for targeting purposes, for example to enable adverts that they feel best match your interests to be chosen and transmitted to your device, based upon the previous activities of your device on the Internet.
The time between when you open your Internet browser and close your browser is called a browser session. Session cookies are cookies that are placed on your device during a browser session. They expire and are deleted at the end of a browser session. We and our commercial partners use session cookies for various reasons, including to track the use of our site during a single browser session, and to help you to use our site more efficiently. For example, session cookies are used to remind our site that your device is logged in on our site, so you don’t have to log in again.
Persistent cookies are cookies that are placed on your device during a browser session. They remain on your device after the end of a browser session. Persistent cookies allow our site to recognise your device when it is used to access our site again after a browser session has been completed and a new browser session has begun, primarily to help you quickly sign in to our site again. Persistent cookies are also used, both by ourselves and our commercial partners, for analytical purposes. Persistent cookies remain current for defined periods of time. Typically persistent cookies placed upon your device when you visit our site remain current from 1 day to 5 years.
Below we provide more detailed information on the cookies placed upon your device when you visit our site.
