Cookie statement

  1. About cookies

The website uses intelligent and useful methods to make the site as interesting and easy to use as possible for each visitor. One of the most well-known methods involves cookies. They may be used by website owners or third parties who communicate through the website you visit, such as advertisers.

Cookies are small text files that websites store on users' computers. The information contained in cookies can also be used to track other websites you visit that use the same cookie.

Cookies are classified according to how long they last and who set them.

We consider it important that you know about the cookies used by our website and what they are used for. The goal is threefold: we want to secure your privacy, user-friendliness, and the funding of our website to the best of our ability. The following explanation provides further information about the cookies that are used on our website and what their purpose is.

How Groves or its businesses and brands use cookies

Groves uses cookies to collect statistical data about visitors and to store information about your preferences when you visit the website. The purpose of using cookies is to improve your experience when you visit the site.

Cookies and how they work

Different types of cookies are used for different purposes.

Below you will find a list of the most common types of cookies and what they are used for.

Session cookies

A session cookie is temporarily stored in your computer's memory while you are surfing a site, for example to remember what language you have chosen. Session cookies are not stored on your computer for long periods of time. They are deleted whenever you turn off your web browser.

Persistent or tracking cookies

A persistent cookie is stored on your computer for a long time. This type of cookie has a limited period of validity. Persistent cookies help websites remember your information and settings when you visit them again later. This makes access quicker and more convenient because, for example, you don't have to log in again.

When a cookie expires, it is automatically deleted the next time you visit the site that created it.



Primary cookies

These cookies are set by the website itself (the same domain as in the browser address bar) and only the website can read them. These cookies are commonly used to store information such as your preferences for when you revisit the site.

Third party cookies

These cookies are set by domains other than the one in the browser address bar, i.e. by an organisation that is not the owner of this website.

For example, cookies that are used to collect information for advertising purposes and customized content, as well as for web statistics, may be third party cookies.

Because third-party cookies allow for more comprehensive surveys of surfing habits, they are considered more sensitive in terms of integrity. Therefore, most web browsers allow you to customize your settings to disallow third-party cookies.

Flash cookies

Flash cookies (local shared objects) are data that can be stored on your computer by websites that use Adobe Flash.

Flash cookies are a new way of tracking your movements on the internet and store much more information about you than regular cookies. The main disadvantage of flash cookies is that you can't find them in your browser. They do not appear in the list of cookies that you can see when you review the cookies that are currently stored in your web browser. Regular HTTP cookies cannot store more than 4 kilobytes of data, while flash cookies can store up to 100 kilobytes.

Flash cookies are technically similar to cookies. Almost all web browsers have a Flash Player, which is used to display Flash presentations. One of the most well-known Flash slideshows is the YouTube video player. (Flash cookies are not just associated with YouTube, but apply to all sites that use them.)

Flash cookies do not have a time limit. They will remain stored on your computer until they are deleted.

What we use flash cookies for

Groves uses flash cookies to collect statistical data and set audio preferences.

How to block flash cookies

It is not possible to block or manage flash cookies in the same way in your browser, as they are stored elsewhere, in the Global Storage Settings panel in the online message menu of the Adobe settings page.

You can access the settings manager from the Adobe site, but it is run locally on your computer. The Storage Settings page will display all flash cookies that are currently stored on your computer.

You can clear flash cookies from individual pages or all at once. In addition, you can increase or decrease the total size of the information in kilobytes stored on your computer.

If you disable the "Allow third-party flash content to store data on your computer" option in the global storage settings, no flash cookies will be stored.

If you want to block flash cookies on a per-page basis, you do so in the settings manager.

If you block flash cookies, we cannot guarantee that all the functions of our website will work flawlessly.

Blocking / activating or removing cookies

You can restrict or block cookies through your browser settings.

If you do not want websites to store cookies on your computer at all, you can adjust your browser settings so that you are always notified before a cookie is stored. Similarly, you can adjust your settings so that your browser rejects all cookies or only third-party cookies. You can also delete any cookie that has already been stored. You must customize the settings separately for each browser and computer you use.

If you do not want cookies, we cannot guarantee the error-free functioning of our website. Some features on this site may be disabled and you may not be able to view some web pages. In addition, if you refuse cookies, it does not mean that you will no longer see any advertisements. It's just that the ads will not be tailored to your interests and will be repeated more often.

Each browser has its own way of customizing your settings. If necessary, use your browser's help function to adjust your settings.

For more information about blocking cookies on your mobile phone, please refer to the relevant manual.

Other / unforeseen cookies

Due to the functioning of the internet and the website, we are not always aware of cookies that are stored by third parties via our website. This is especially true if our website contains so-called embedded elements: texts, documents, images, or short films that are stored by a third party but are displayed on, within or through our website.

Therefore, if you find that this website contains such cookies that have not been mentioned above, please let us know. You can also contact the relevant third party directly to ask what cookies they store, for what purpose, for how long and how your privacy is ensured.
