How 1Diamond Technology manages cookies

The first time you accessed www.1diamondtechnology.com you should have seen an overlay which explained that by continuing to access our site, you are consenting to our use of cookies.

We use cookies and similar tools across our websites to improve their performance and enhance your user experience. This policy explains how we do that.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.

Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.

What sort of cookies do 1Diamond Technology use?

Generally, our cookies perform up to four different functions:

  1. Essential cookies

Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to.

  1. Performance Cookies

We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website.

  1. Functionality Cookies

We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customisation preferences, such as which regional edition of the website you want to see when you log in.

We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online or comment on a blog.

What personal information we collect and why we collect them

– Contact forms
Via the contact form (s) on this website we collect data such as name, email address, phone number and what the request applies.
We request this information in order to answer the inquiry in the best possible way.

By using the contact form on this website you agree that we store your data and that we can send you digital communications. We take your privacy seriously and will never share your personal information with third parties. You can withdraw all consent whenever you wish. See our privacy statement for more information.

– Web analytics & cookies (cookies)
As an important part of the effort to create a user-friendly website, we look at the user pattern of those who visit the site. To analyze the information, we use the Google Analytics analytics tool.
Google Analytics uses cookies / cookies (small text files that the site stores on the user’s computer), which registers the users’ IP address and provides information about the individual user’s online movements. Examples of what the statistics give us answers to are; how many people visit different pages, how long the visit lasts, what websites users come from and what browsers are used. None of the cookies allow us to link information about your use of the site to you as an individual. Data related to cookies will be automatically deleted 14 months after registration. You can manage the use of cookies yourself.

The information collected by Google Analytics is stored on Google servers in the U.S.. The information received is subject to the Google Privacy Policy.

An IP address is defined as a personal information because it can be traced back to a particular hardware and thus to an individual. We anonymize the user’s IP address before the information is stored and processed by Google. Thus, the anonymous IP address can not be used to identify the individual user.

Your IP address is also logged for a short period of time by our web servers. The user’s IP address, time, URL, HTTP status, number of bytes sent, HTTP referrer and HTTP user agent are logged in for 15 days. Then the log will be automatically deleted.

– Search
This website stores information about what keywords users use on our websites through Google Analytics. The purpose of the storage is to improve our information service. The search usage pattern is stored in aggregate form. Only the keyword is saved and they can not be linked to other information about the users, such as IP addresses.

– Facebook Pixel
Facebook is the largest and most active of our social channels. To improve the interaction between Facebook and our website, we can install Facebook’s “pixel” – a script that measures traffic across Facebook’s interface and our web pages. We use the data collected by the pixel to deliver customized content to those visiting our website and for marketing on Facebook. For more information about privacy around Facebook, please visit this link.

– Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this page may include embedded content (eg videos, photos, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other sites behaves exactly the same as if the visitor had visited the site as the embedded content comes from.

These sites may collect information about you, use cookies, or build third-party tracking systems and monitor what you do through this embedded content. This also includes tracking your actions via the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to the site.

– Share / Tips service
The “Share with others” feature can be used to forward links to the site by email, or to share the content of social networking communities, such as Facebook or Twitter. Tips for tips are not logged with us, but only used to add the tips to the community. However, we can not guarantee that the online community does not log this information. All such services should therefore be used wisely. If you use the email feature, we only use the provided email addresses to resend the message without any form of storage.

Who we share your information with

We do not share any personal information with third parties.

Storage and deletion

Pursuant to section 28 of the Personal Data Act, information which is no longer necessary for the purpose for which they are stored is to be deleted. We store personal information in accordance with current laws.
