Information on cookies and other trackers

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file deposited in a specific area on your device (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when consulting a website, reading an email, installing or using a software or mobile application or viewing online advertising.

Cookies are used to collect information regarding your Internet browsing, to simplify access to our site or to increase the speed and efficiency of its use, and to send you personalised services or advertising.

Cookies are managed primarily by the browser used by your device.

Cookies are classified according to a three-level system.

Type Definition
1st party cookie This is a cookie internal to the visited website, which is created and stored by the website itself.
2nd party cookie This is an internal cookie that is transferred from the company that created the cookie to another company via a data partnership, either on a sale or sharing basis.
3rd party cookie This is a cookie associated with a domain name other than that of the site you are visiting, which is created and stored by a third party in relation to the owner of the site.

What other trackers are there?

The other trackers used on the tyreleader.ie site correspond to the technology known as web storage. This is a different technology to cookies that stores information on the user's device via the browser used (IE, Firefox, Safari, etc.). The data collected does not pass through our servers at any time, unlike the data collected by cookies.

There are two types of web storage depending on the life span of the stored data.

Type Definition
Session
Storage
This type of web storage is unique in that it only stores the data collected for the duration of the session, i.e. the time during which the browser window or tab remains open on the user's device. The collected data is automatically deleted when the user closes the tab or window.
Local
Storage
This type of web storage is different in that it stores the data collected beyond the duration of the session, for either an indefinite or limited period, due to the deletion of the data by the user or the programming of a retention period by the publisher.
