Cookies Policy

Last updated March 28, 2023

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. Two types of cookies exist:

  • First party cookies are cookies set by the website you are visiting. Only that website can read them. In addition, a website might potentially use external services, which also set their own cookies, known as third-party cookies.
  • Persistent cookies are cookies saved on your computer and that are not deleted automatically when you quit your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you quit your browser.

Every time you visit the websites managed by HYVI LDA, you will be prompted to accept or refuse cookies.

The purpose is to enable the site to remember your preferences (such as user name, language, etc.) for a certain period of time. That way, you do not have to re-enter them when browsing around the site during the same visit. Cookies can also be used to establish anonymised statistics about the browsing experience on our sites.

How do we use cookies?

The websites managed by HYVI LDA mostly use first party cookies. These are cookies set and controlled by HYVI LDA, not by any external organization. However, to view some of our pages, you will have to accept cookies from external organizations. The 3 types of first-party cookie we use are to:

  • Store visitor preferences.
  • Make our websites operational.
  • Gather analytics data (about user behaviour).

1. Visitor preferences

These are set by us and only we can read them. They remember:

  • If you have agreed to (or refused) this site cookie policy.
  • If you have already replied to our survey pop-up (about how helpful the site content was) – so you will not be asked again.

2. Operational cookies

There are some cookies that we have to include in order for certain web pages to function. For this reason, they do not require your consent. In particular:

Authentication cookies: these are stored when you log in to a site managed by HYVI LDA, using our authentication service, our website uses a login system based on a username and password to allow users to log in and access secure online services. This authentication system allows us to verify the identity of users and to ensure the security of their personal data. When you do this, you accept the associated privacy policy.

3. Analytics cookies

We use these purely for internal research on how we can improve the service we provide for all our users. The cookies simply assess how you interact with our website – as an anonymous user (the data gathered does not identify you personally). Also, this data is not shared with any third parties or used for any other purpose. The anonymised statistics could be shared with contractors working on communication projects under contractual agreement with the HYVI LDA. However, you are free to refuse these types of cookies – either via the cookie banner you will see on the first page you visit.

Some of our pages display content from external providers. To view this third-party content, you first have to accept their specific terms and conditions. This includes their cookie policies, which we have no control over. But if you do not view this content, no third-party cookies are installed on your device. Third-party providers on our websites:

  • TradingView.

These third-party services are outside of our control. Providers may, at any time, change their terms of service, purpose and use of cookies, etc.

How can you manage cookies?

You can delete all cookies that are already on your device by clearing the browsing history of your browser. This will remove all cookies from all websites you have visited. Be aware though that you may also lose some saved information (e.g. saved login details, site preferences). For more detailed control over site-specific cookies, check the privacy and cookie settings in your preferred browser. You can set most modern browsers to prevent any cookies being placed on your device, but you may then have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site/page. And some services and functionalities may not work properly at all (e.g. profile logging-in). You can manage your preferences concerning cookies from our sites on the dedicated page.
