Introduction

1. Please read this cookie policy (Cookie Policy) carefully as it contains important information on who we are and how we use cookies on europescortguide.com, all associated sub-domains, web-apps and mobile apps (Platform). This policy should be read together with our Privacy Policy which sets out how and why we collect, store, use and share personal information generally, as well as your rights in relation to your personal information and details of how to contact us and supervisory authorities if you have a complaint.

Who we are

2. This Platform is operated by Siteways International AG, trading as Europe Escort Guide, a software services provider.

Our platform

3. This Cookie Policy only relates to your use of our Platform.

4. Throughout our Platform we may link to other websites owned and operated by certain trusted third parties to make additional services available to you. These other third-party websites may also use cookies or similar technologies in accordance with their own separate policies. For privacy information relating to these other third-party websites, please consult their policies as appropriate.

Cookies

5. A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device (for example your computer, smartphone or other electronic device) when you use our Platform. We use cookies on our Platform. These enable the platform to function fully, help us recognise you and your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions and optimise your experience of the Platform.

6. For example, we may monitor how many times you visit the Platform, which pages you go to, traffic data, location data and the originating domain name of your internet service provider. This information helps us to build a profile of our users and help you engage the service providers that suit you best. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.

7. Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies. A session cookie expires when you cease accessing the Platform and close the web browser window, whereas a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted earlier by the user.

8. Cookies may not contain any information that personally identify you on its own. However, this information, like your physical IP address, may be linked to other information that we process on your behalf which would enable identification.

9. All Cookies used by this Platform are used in accordance with current UK and EU data protection laws.

10. For further information on our use of cookies, including a detailed list of your information which we and others may collect through cookies, please see Paragraph 15 below.
