Cookie policy

This Policy is effective

This policy describes how We use cookies on www.unicheck.com (the "Site"). We recommend that the Users also consult Our Privacy Policy for additional information on how We collect and use information collected from visitors to the Site. Users continued use of the Site after that will signify the Users’ acceptance of this Policy. We will notice the Users about facts of amendments of Our Privacy Policy or Cookie Policy at Our Site, so the Users should check for updates as far they will see such notice. By using the Site, the Users agree that We can use the cookies described in this Cookie Policy. The User can stop cookies by changing the settings in the User’s browser (more information on how to do this is provided below).

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to the User’s browsing device (such as a computer or smartphone) when the User visits a website. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them — or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before.

What are cookies used for?

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like helping Us understand how the Site is being used, letting the Users navigate between pages efficiently, remembering Users’ preferences, and generally improving the Users’ browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing the Users see online is more relevant to the Users and the Users’ interests.

What types of cookies do We use?

The type of cookies used on most websites can generally be put into one of six categories: Strictly Necessary, Performance, Functionality, Tailored Content and Targeting. In order to provide Our Users with the best browsing experience, We use all of these categories on the Site. Users can find out more about each cookie category in the sections below.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential, as they enable the Users to move around the Site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, some services that Users have asked for, such as payment submission, can't be provided.

Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how the Users use the Site, for example which pages they go to most often and if they get error messages from certain pages. These cookies don't gather information that identifies the User. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how the Site works.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow the Site to remember choices the Users make (such as the User’s user name, language or the region the User is in). For instance, the Site uses functionality cookies to remember the User’s language preference. These cookies can also be used to remember changes the User has made to text size, font and other parts of pages that the user can customize. They may also be used to provide services the User has asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track the user’s browsing activity on other websites.

Tailored Content Cookies

Tailored content cookies help the Site provide enhanced features and display content in a way that is relevant to users. These cookies help the Site determine what information to show the user based on how the User has used the Site previously. These cookies do not track the user’s browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to the Users and the Users’ interests. They are also used to limit the number of times the Users see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They remember that Users have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organizations such as advertisers. This means after the Users have been to the Site the Users may see some advertisements about Our Services elsewhere on the Internet.

How long will cookies stay on my browsing device?

The length of time a cookie will stay on the User’s browsing device depends on whether it is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. Session cookies will only stay on the User’s device until the User stops browsing. Persistent cookies stay on the User’s browsing device until they expire or are deleted.

First and third party cookies

First party cookies are cookies that belong to Us, while third party cookies are cookies that another party places on the Users’ browsing devices through Our Site. For example, Facebook will place a cookie on the Users’ browsing devices if the Users click on the Facebook link when browsing the Site.

How to control and delete cookies through the User’s browser

The browser the Users are using to view the Site can enable, disable or delete cookies. To do this, the user should follow the instructions provided by the User’s browser (usually located within the "Help," "Tools" or "Edit" facility). But if the User sets the browser to disable cookies, the User may not be able to access certain parts of the Site. Other parts of the Site may also not work properly.
