Glasnost makes use of “cookies” and other comparable technologies. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer or mobile device (phone, tablet) when you first visit our website.
Cookies that we or third parties place in order to enhance the functionality or analyse the usage of our website do not require explicit permission. For other types of cookies, the so-called ‘tracking cookies’, we will ask for your consent.
For more information, please read the information regarding cookies below. A list of the cookies that Glasnost or third parties place can be found on the bottom of this page.
Types of cookies used
These cookies allow the website to function optimally. Disabling these cookies may cause a less-than-optimal experience of the website.
In order to remember your personal preferences, such as your preferred language or the region you are in, we use preference cookies. The ultimate convenience!
Apart from functional cookies, we also place analytical cookies. Google Analytics is an example of a service we use that places an analytical cookie enabling us to verify user satisfaction. The collected information is transferred by Google and stored on its servers in the United States. Google is required to share this information with third parties when there is a legal obligation to do so or if these third parties process the data on Google’s behalf. Glasnost has no direct influence on this matter. However, we have taken measures to safeguard your privacy: we have entered into a processing agreement with Google, ensuring that the last digits of your IP address are masked. Furthermore, we have barred Google from using the data obtained through Google Analytics for other Google services.
Another service to place a cookie is Vimeo. This cookie signals us when a visitor to our website loads a video. This is simple systems integration and hardly exciting.
The tracking cookies we or third parties may place on your device(s) with your consent serve to fine-tune your profile and display advertisements that match your interests by tracking the pages you visit. Third party partners that may place such cookies are advertising and social media networks, namely Facebook, Google and YouTube. These cookies also enable us, for instance, to monitor how many times a particular YouTube video on our site is watched.
