Cookies are used for executing IT authorisations, for session monitoring, and for storing information regarding your activities when you access a website. They may also contain a unique identification code enabling your browsing history to be tracked within the website itself for statistical or advertising purposes. It may not be possible to execute certain operations without using cookies, and in certain cases they are technically necessary for the website to work.
When browsing a website, the user may also receive cookies on his computer from other websites or web servers than the one he is actually visiting (called “third party” cookies).
There are different types of cookies depending on their features and functions, and they may remain on the user’s computer for different periods of time: session cookies are automatically deleted when the web browser is closed; persistent cookies remain on the computer until they expire.
Vice-versa, "profiling cookies" are used for creating profiles relating to the user, and are used for sending advertising messages that match the preferences expressed by the user when browsing the internet. The user’s prior authorisation is generally required, depending on the applicable regulations. The Website makes use of the following types of cookies:
Technical browsing or session cookies, strictly necessary for the website to function or so that you can use the contents and services you requested.
Analytical cookies, enabling MennYacht Group to understand how the Website is used by its users and to track incoming and outgoing website traffic.
Functional cookies, used to make specific Website functions work, and to configure the Website based on your choices (such as language) in order to offer you a better browsing experience.
Profiling cookies used to observe the preferences you express when using the Website and to send you advertising messages that match your preferences.
MennYacht Group also uses third-party cookies, namely cookies from other websites or web servers than the Website, owned by third parties. These third parties are generally data processing controllers independent of MennYacht Group regarding cookies (and they use the data they collect for their own purposes and according to terms they have established), or operate as the Processors in charge of processing for MennYacht Group (meaning they process Personal Information on behalf of MennYacht Group).
You can also manage your third-party cookies preferences using online platforms such as AdChoice.
