How do we collect data?

We use cookies and web bugs to collect data. Most of the data are not personal data, but cookies and web bugs can also collect data classified as personal. 

A cookie is a small string of characters that a website can send to the browser. Cookies cannot pick up data from your computer, spread viruses or capture email addresses. Taaleri uses both session cookies and persistent cookies in order to enhance the experience of using the website. With cookies, it is possible to follow, for example, the use of the different sections of the website and the selections made by users. If you do not wish to accept cookies, change the settings of your browser. The use of Taaleri Shop and Taaleri Reporting require the acceptance of session cookies. Thanks to cookies, you can take care of your business simply and flexibly. The cookies disappear when you log out of Taaleri’s services. 

A web bug is a small transparent GIF image, which is embedded into an HTML page or email message. It can monitor when a page or email message is opened. Through similar technology, a product or service can send data to a server based on what the user does, for example when a user makes a selection. It is reminiscent of cookies in that they both monitor the use of content and only the server receiving the data can read the data. They differ from cookies in that they are not browser-based, they do not recognise users and they do not store anything on the computer.

The common name for such technology is ‘data gathering tools’. 

Data assignment and transfer

Taaleri may use subcontractors in the processing of data, customer service, the production of online services, marketing analysis or communication with other parties or service providers. The partners are carefully selected service providers with whom there is a written agreement on data processing. We use partners whose servers are situated in the EU/EEA area. If, under exceptional circumstances, data is transferred outside the EU/EEA area, Taaleri ensures that it is done as required by EU data protection legislation. 

The taaleri.com website, Taaleri Shop and Taaleri Reporting may make use of third-party data gathering tools, which collect data about what users do on different websites or web services. The transfer of the user’s data to these parties guides the data protection practices of the company providing the features. You have the right to prevent the collection of your data or its use by the third parties in question as described in the section ‘Blocking’.

If you do not want to accept cookies from our website or through email messages in HTML format, you can set the browser to notify you before the acceptance of cookies and to block cookies as necessary.
