AHI Roofing Kft., a Hungarian company seated at Fehervari ut 28/14, 8100 Varpalota, Hungary, email: office@gerardroofs.eu, operating under brand name GERARD®, directly or through its data processors, may collect information about your device, including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type to enable certain features of the website to work, for system administration and to enable third parties to personalize and provide content to you, including advertising.

 

We are required to provide you with clear and comprehensive information about the cookies that we use and if this page does not answer all of your queries you should contact office@gerardroofs.eu. For further information on our data protection policy, including your rights concerning your personal data processing, please visit https://gerardroofs.eu/en/privacy-policy.

 

What are cookies?

 

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

 

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Gerard, 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 cookies and similar technology that falls into the following categories:

- Strictly necessary cookies which are required for the operation of the site including for logging in or paying for goods or services.

- Analytical and customisation cookies, which collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Websites are being used (such as recognising and counting the number of visitors and seeing how visitors move around the site) or how effective are marketing campaigns are, or to help us customise our Websites for you.

- Performance and Functionality cookies which are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our Websites but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality (like videos) may become unavailable.

- Targeting/Advertising cookies which record your visits to the website, pages visited and links you have followed to make the website and advertising more relevant to your interests. (We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose).

- Social Media Cookies which are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our Websites through third party social networking and other websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes too.

For more information about the types of cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them please see the attached “Cookies Gerard” table.

 

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

 

Cookies are not the only way to recognise 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 recognise when someone has visited our Websites (or opened an e-mail that we have sent them). This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

 

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

 

Our 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 for 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, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to "information" on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies 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 you 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 in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these.

 

How can I control cookies?

 

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie preferences by following the instructions provided in the cookie table above. 

You can set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. 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. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.

 

HOW LONG WILL COOKIES REMAIN ON THE COMPUTER?

 

The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “necessary”, “statistics” or “marketing” cookie. The expiration of the concrete cookies you can see at the “Cookies Gerard” table.

Third party analytics cookies “remember” what our users have done on previous pages and how they’ve interacted with the website. For more information on analytics cookies you can see also at the “Cookies Gerard” table.

 

How often will you update this Cookie Notice?

 

We may update this Cookie Notice from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Notice regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies. 

The date at the top of this Cookie Notice indicates when it was last updated.

 

Where can I get further information?

 

If you have any questions about our use of cookies or other technologies, please email us at [office@gerardroofs.eu].
