Cookie Policy

Studio Artesania, like most websites, uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our site. This helps us to improve your experience when you browse our blog and also allows us to improve our website. By using cookies, the website is essentially able to remember you during a single visit to the site, known as a session cookie, or for repeat visits, known as persistent cookies.
Cookies are used for a number of reasons such as making your use of the site faster and easier, storing your preferences, recognizing if you have visited the site before or if you have already logged in once, rather than asking you to log in to every page you visit.

What’s a cookie?

Cookies are small, often encrypted text files, located in browser directories, the hard drive of your computer or your mobile device if you agree. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. They are used by web developers to help users navigate their websites efficiently and perform certain functions.
Cookies are created when a user's browser loads a particular website. The website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file. Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this file to the website's server. Computer Cookies are created not just by the website the user is browsing but also by other websites that run ads, widgets, or other elements on the page being loaded. These cookies regulate how the ads appear or how the widgets and other elements function on the page.
Cookies record how you move your way around a website so that, when you revisit that website, it can present tailored options based on the information stored about your last visit. Cookies can also be used to analyze traffic and for advertising and marketing purposes. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide anonymized tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system.
Cookies do not usually contain personal information. Cookies may, however, be used in combination with other information to identify you. If you require further information about cookies in general, please visit the About Cookies website.

Cookies we use are either:
      Session cookies - which are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page but they do not collect any personal data from your computer.
      Persistent cookies - which are stored as a file on your computer and it remains there when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again. We use persistent cookies for Google Analytics.
Cookies we use can also be categorized as follows:
      Strictly necessary cookies - These cookies are essential to enable you to use the website effectively, such as when buying a product and/or service, and therefore cannot be turned off. Without these cookies, the services available to you on our website cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
      Performance cookies - These cookies enable us to monitor and improve the performance of our website. For example, they allow us to count visits, identify traffic sources and see which parts of the site are most popular.
      Functionality cookies - These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced features. For instance, we may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the services you use. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymized.

Third parties cookies

Please note that third parties who advertise on our website (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

Google Analytics

Studio Artesania uses Google Analytics to measure traffic, track website performance and user behavior. It provides information on page views, referral sources, and other valuable information that helps us adapt the content for this website. Google Analytics does capture anonymous data about location, age, gender, and interests, but we have no way to connect that information and specifically identify you. Google Analytics may also capture your IP address as you make your way around this website. User and event data is retained for 26 months and then is automatically deleted. You can read more about that here.
Google has their own Privacy Policy which you can review here. If you’d like to opt out of tracking by Google Analytics, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page.
