Our website

This cookie policy relates to your use of our website, www.carbongold.com only.

Cookies and similar technologies

Throughout our website, we may link to other websites owned and operated by certain trusted third parties to make additional products and services available to you. These other third party websites may also use cookies or similar technologies in accordance with their own separate cookie policies. For privacy information relating to these other third party websites, please consult their cookie policies as appropriate.

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device (eg computer, smartphone or another electronic device) when you use our website. We use cookies and other similar tracking technologies on our website. These help us recognise you and your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions.

For example, we may monitor how many times you visit the website, which pages you go to, traffic data, location data and the originating domain name of a user’s internet service provider. This information helps us to build a profile of our users. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.

You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the websites below tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, some of our website features may not function as a result.

Our use of cookies

When you visit this Site, you can browse the Site and access information without revealing your identity. In order to improve our Site, we use “cookies” to track your visit. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a Web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables Carbon Gold to record your passwords, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.

Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it.

For some Web pages that require an authorisation or login, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.

Those users using the “Ask Carbon Gold” question and answers facility on this site will receive a cookie. The third-party company, using a secure server, encrypts this cookie into an alias so no identifiable information is recorded although through the alias they can track if a user has visited this facility before. At no time is this information used other than in a statistical analysis of all users.ƒsolv

While Carbon Gold uses cookies to track your visit to this web site, our Web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer, Carbon Gold does not generally use this information to identify you personally. However, if you expressly provide consent for Carbon Gold to “remember” the unique identifier that you select when you register for various activities on the site, that unique identifier will be stored on a cookie on your computer, linked to your registration information, and your navigation path around the site will be tracked. We associate this data to understand how our site and services are being used so we can understand our customers and improve navigation around the site.

We use cookies and other similar tracking technologies on this website to:

  • recognise you whenever you visit this website (this speeds up your access to the website as you do not have to log in each time);
  • obtain information about your preferences and use of our website;
  • carry out research and statistical analysis to help improve our content, products and services and to help us better understand our users’ requirements; and
  • target our marketing and advertising campaigns [and those of our partners] more effectively by providing interest-based advertisements that are personalised to your interests; and
  • make your online experience more efficient and enjoyable.
