What are cookies and how do they work?

Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to your computer or other internet enabled devices when you visit a website. These cookies are designed to allow the website to recognise its users on subsequent visits, or to authorise other designated websites to recognise these users for a particular purpose. We collect a number of cookies from you for various reasons, not least to track our own performance – but also to let us serve you content tailored to your own specifications, hopefully improving your overall experience of the Website. Amongst other things, the cookies we use allow us to calculate how many visitors we have and how long they stay on our site. 

Cookies are an important part of the internet. They make using websites smoother and affect lots of the useful features of websites. In general, the reasons why websites use cookies are: [1] to recognize users, [2] to recall their preferences and [3] to assist users in a multitude of ways such as remembering data that was inputted before. Cookies are also employed for targeted advertising and to show relevant content based on user’s past researches.

Below you find a number of examples of how our Website uses cookies to improve your user experience:

  • Recalling if you visited the site before. If you are a first-time user, you might see different content compared to a regular user.
  • Remembering your preferences and settings, including marketing preferences
  • Remembering your specific preferences, such as if you filled in a survey, so you are not asked to do it again.
  • Enabling social media components, like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

How to manage cookies

As per European legislation, Brickblock requires prior consent of the user to store or access data in the form of cookies on the user’s terminal device.

Unless you delete the cookies stored on your device or they have expired, you will not encounter the pop-up banner again when visiting the Website another time with the same browser and device.

In general browsers are configured to automatically accept cookies from any website. However, your browser’s settings offer the possibility to manage cookies. You can block them, or choose to receive a notification when a cookie is being stored on your terminal device.

In this respect it is also possible to disable the cookies used by our Website so that no cookie will be stored and used. Note that this may reduce the Website’s functionality and have an impact on the overall user experience.
