By means of this policy (hereinafter referred to as the "Cookie Policy"), we wish to inform you about which cookies we use and how we do this.

We may change, improve or add to this Cookie Policy at any time with respect to any future use of the Website, for any reason whatsoever, by posting a revised version of this Cookie Policy on our Website. If applicable, the Website will indicate that a revised version of the Cookie Policy has been posted on the Website. If your consent is necessary to use the new cookies, for example because the cookies are not strictly necessary to use the Website, your consent will be asked (again) where appropriate.

This Cookie Policy should be read in conjunction with Purestone's Privacy Policy, as it is available on the Website.

1/ What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that is placed by the server of a website or platform in the browser of your computer or on your mobile device, when you consult the website or platform concerned. The cookie contains a unique code that allows your browser to be recognised during visits to the Website (a so-called "session" cookie) or during subsequent, repeated visits (a "permanent" cookie). Cookies can be placed both by the website with which you work (a first party cookie) and by partners with whom the website or platform collaborates (a third party cookie). The website's server can only read the cookies it has placed itself and has no access to other information stored on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device in the folder of your browser. The content of a cookie usually consists of the name of the server that placed the cookie, an expiry date and a unique numerical code.

Cookies generally make interaction between the visitor/user and a website/platform easier and faster and help the visitor/user to navigate between the different parts of a website/platform. In addition, they can provide the administrator/owner of the website with valuable information about the way in which you use that website.

2/ Which cookies do we use?

The Website uses (part of the following) different types of cookies, depending on your personal settings, which you may provide during each visit to the Website:

  • Necessary cookies: These cookies are indispensable in order to visit our Website and use certain parts of it. For example, these cookies allow you to navigate between different parts of the Website.
  • Tracking cookies: Tracking cookies are cookies that survive user sessions. They can collect information for up to one year. During this period, the cookie will be reset to its initial value each time you visit the Website. This cookie records vital information, such as how a visitor reaches the Website for the first time. This is the reason why these types of cookies are called 'tracking cookies'. For example, if you have chosen a language preference, the Website will register this as a persistent cookie in your browser. When you then consult the Website again, this cookie ensures that the content is displayed in your preferred language.
  • Functional cookies: These cookies facilitate the functioning of our Website, make it more user-friendly and ensure that you have a more personalized browsing experience. For example, they track whether you have already been asked to participate in a feedback form so that we do not offer you the same form over and over again.
  • Analytical, marking, social media and performance cookies: We use these cookies to collect information about the use of the Website, with the intention of improving the content of the Website, adapting it more to the wishes of the visitors/users and, in general, increasing the ease of use of the Website. For example, there is a cookie that helps us count the number of unique visitors and a cookie that keeps track of which pages are the most popular. In addition, these cookies may also originate from third parties such as facebook, google, youtube, etc.
