In some cases, We may use cookies to collect personal information or information that becomes

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on Your computer or mobile device when You visit a
website. Website owners widely use cookies to make their websites work or work more
efficiently and provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Falkbuilt Ltd.) are called ”first-party cookies.”
Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called ”third-party cookies.” Third-party
cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g.
advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can
recognize Your computer both when it visits the website in question and when it visits certain
other websites.

Why do We use cookies?

We use first and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for
technical reasons for Our Websites to operate, and We refer to these as ”essential” cookies.
Other cookies also enable Us to track and target Our users’ interests to enhance the experience

analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
The specific types of first and third-party cookies served through Our Websites and the

vary depending on the specific Online Properties You visit):

How can I control cookies?

You with services.
The Cookie Consent Manager can be found in the notification banner and on Our website.
If You choose to reject cookies, You may still use Our website though Your access to some
functionality and areas of Our website may be restricted. You may also set or amend Your web
browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. As the way You can refuse cookies through Your
web browser controls varies from browser-to-browser, You should visit Your browser's help
menu for more information.

What about other tracking technologies, like web
beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other,
similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called ”tracking pixels” or
”clear GIFs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable Us to
recognize when someone has visited Our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This
allows Us to, for example:
● monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another
● deliver or communicate with cookies
● understand whether You have come to the website from an online advertisement
displayed on a third-party website
● improve site performance
● measure the success of email marketing campaigns.
In many instances, these technologies rely on cookies to function correctly, and so declining
cookies will impair their functioning.

Do We use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Websites may also use so-called ”Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or
”LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about Your use of Our services,
fraud prevention and other site operations.
If You do not want Flash Cookies stored on Your computer, You can adjust the settings of Your
Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the
Website Storage Settings Panel.
You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following
the instructions, which may include instructions that explain how to:
● delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to as ”information” on the Macromedia site)
● prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on Your computer without Your being asked
● block Flash Cookies (for Flash Player 8 and later) that are not being delivered by the
operator of the page You are on at the time.
Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may
reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash
applications used in connection with Our services or online content.

Do We serve targeted advertising?

Third-parties may serve cookies on Your computer or mobile device to serve advertising
through Our Websites. These companies may use information about Your visits to this and
other websites to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services in which You may
be interested. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of
advertisements. They may use cookies or web beacons to collect information about Your visits
to this and other sites to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential
interest to You. The information collected through this process does not enable them or Us to
identify Your name, contact details or other details that directly identify You unless You choose
to provide these.

How often will We update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time to reflect, for example, changes to the
cookies We use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Therefore, please visit this
Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about Our use of cookies and related technologies.
The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
