Proper protection of personal data is an important goal for BookTes. Our desire is to be as clear and transparent as possible about BookTes' approach to the proper protection of personal data. For any questions, please contact us at contact@booktes.com.

To give you the best BookTes experience, we use cookies to personalize the content, ads, and social media features you see on the website.

  1. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file, usually consisting of letters and numbers, downloaded into the memory of a computer (or other equipment used for online browsing - mobile phone, tablet, etc.) when the user accesses a particular website. For example, on many e-commerce websites, if you add an item to an online shopping cart without completing the exit process, the next time you visit the same website, you can see the same item in the shopping cart. This is an example of how cookies are used to remember your preferences. Without the use of cookies, your experience on our Platform will be less personalized.

For more information about cookies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

2. Why we use cookies.

Cookies can provide faster and easier interaction between users and websites. For example, when a user authenticates on a website, the authentication data is stored in a cookie; subsequently, the user can access that website without having to log in again.

In other cases, cookies may be used to store information about the activities performed by the user on a particular web page, so that he can easily resume those activities when you access the website later. Cookies tell the server which pages to show the user so that they do not have to remember this or browse the entire website from the beginning. Thus, cookies can be assimilated to "bookmarks" that tell the user exactly where he was on a website.

In order for any website to work in optimal parameters, it must use cookies. All websites around the world use cookies and it is a widespread practice.

Similarly, cookies can store information about products ordered by the user on an e-commerce website, thus making possible the concept of "shopping cart".

3. What type of cookie do we use

Cookies can also give websites the ability to monitor users' online activities and establish user profiles, which can then be used for marketing purposes. For example, based on cookies, the products and services agreed by a user can be identified, this information is subsequently used to send appropriate advertising messages to that user.

Preference cookies allow the website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, such as your preferred language or region.

Statistical cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with the website by collecting and reporting information anonymously.

Marketing cookies are used to track users from one website to another. The intent is to show relevant and engaging ads to individual users.

Unclassified cookies are cookies that are pending to be classified, along with individual cookie providers.

Social media cookies allow you to share your social media activity on the website, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social networks. These cookies are not controlled by us. For more details on this category of cookies, see the Cookie Policy of the respective social networks.

Google Analytics cookies - Google Analytics is Google's analytics tool that helps website and app owners understand how visitors interact with their properties. Google Analytics may use a set of cookies to collect information and report statistical data on the use of the website, without sending to Google data that identifies visitors. The main cookie used by Google Analytics is the "_ga" cookie.

In addition to reporting website usage statistics, Google Analytics may be used, in conjunction with some of the advertising cookies described above, to show more relevant ads on Google properties (such as Google Search) and on the web, as well as to measure the interaction with the ads it displays.

In addition to our Platform, we use pixel tags or so-called "pixels" belonging to different Social Platforms. They are used in conjunction with cookies to identify users and their behaviour.
