Personal data and cookies

Information to visitors on hydroscand.com

General

Hydroscand Group respects your privacy and your right to control your personal data. We are going to be transparent about the kinds of data we collect and why. We are also going to protect your data in the best possible manner.

This page describes the information we collect on our site, the purpose for which we collect it and how you can control your own information. This applies when using www.hydroscand.com.

The personal data we collect

Hydroscand Group collects data primarily from our customers. Some examples of the personal data we collect are your name, and your contact info such as your mobile phone number, email address or physical address. Hydroscand Group may update your data from other public records, such as the SPAR address register, if this is necessary to maintain good registry management.

Hydroscand Group registers personal data when:

  • you fill in your email address or your phone number somewhere on our website
  • you contact us via email, phone, our website and/or social media
  • you register for our newsletter

We also collect data about your visit to our website, including (but not limited to) traffic data, location data and other communication data as well as e.g. the IP address, type of device, operating system and browser type used for the visit.

COOKIES

Like other web sites, we use cookies to store and then recycle data from your computer in cases of multiple site visits. This information is used primarily in order for the site to work well. Cookies are not connected to you as a person, they are only connected to the computer where they are stored.

Hydroscand uses a consent model called ‘implied consent’. This means that cookies are already placed on the first page you see on our site.

By proceeding from the first page of our site, you agree to the use of cookies as described in this cookie policy.

We use cookies to collect general information about which pages you visit and in what order. Sometimes we combine this with information we receive from our partners. That way, we can group users into different types that seem to share the same interest for our different products. With the help of this information, we can target content and communication to make it more relevant to the recipient.

Some cookies are created by companies whose program code we have added to our site. This can also mean that other sites you visit receive customised content and ads appear on those sites, with content that may interest you.

If you would like to learn more about how cookies work in general, including how to avoid them being stored on your computer, please visit the www.allaboutcookies.org website where you can find a wealth of information about this.

Below is a description of the different types of cookies used on this site, as well as examples of the most important ones used by our service partners.

STRICTLY NECESSARY COOKIES

A few cookies are necessary in order for the website to work. For example, they are set when you fill in a form or request another service.

These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information, and most of these cookies are what are known as ‘session cookies’, which means they are deleted when the browser closes.

COOKIES FOR ANALYSES AND OTHER SPECIAL FUNCTIONS

These cookies allow us to count visits and sources so we can measure and improve our site in different ways. They show us which pages are the most and least visited so that we can understand how our visitors use our site.

All of the information collected by these cookies is aggregated and we do not save any personal information about you as a person in these cookies.

An example of a service partner who sets these kinds of cookies is Google Analytics. These partners and any third parties also set their own cookies when you visit our site.

COOKIES FOR PERSONALISATION AND ADVERTISING

These cookies are set through our site by our advertising partners. They can be used by these companies to create interest profiles based on the pages of our site that you visit, and they can then display relevant ads on other sites you visit.

These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information, but are based on a unique identifier of your browser and the type of computer used. With the help of these we can ensure that the content of ads you’re exposed to has been customised to be of interest to you.

Some of these partners also provide tools for managing and measuring the impact of our digital marketing campaigns.

Examples of service partners who set these kinds of cookies are Google/DoubleClicks and Facebook. All of these partners set their own cookies when you visit our site.

COOKIES FOR SOCIAL MEDIA

Our services for social media allow you to share content with your friends and other contacts easily, directly from our site, through our ‘Share’ buttons found on many pages.

Examples of service partners for this are Facebook, Google plus, Twitter and AddThis. All of these companies set their own cookies when you visit our site.
