What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the site again, the cookie allows that site to recognise your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Nirovision) 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. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance our Service experience. For example, Nirovision keeps track of the websites and pages you visit, in order to determine what portion of the Nirovision website is the most popular or most used. This data is used to deliver customised content and promotions within the NirovisionService to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. Third parties serve cookies through our websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
