3.       How Do We Use Cookies?

We use Cookies to help our Services work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide us with various information on your interactions and activities with our Services.

Our use of functional and analytics Cookies aims to monitor, study and analyze the use of our Services, and how we could improve individuals’ user experience and continue improving our offerings and the overall performance of our Services; to explore and pursue growth opportunities by facilitating a stronger local presence and tailored experiences.

4.       How Can You Control Cookies?

Except for Necessary Cookies, you may have a right to decide whether to accept or decline Cookies, depending on the law applicable to the processing of your personal data and/or your location. Where required by applicable law, we will not set non-essential Cookies unless you enable them. When first visiting our website, you may encounter our cookie banner, which allows you to control your preferences. You can change your cookie choices anytime by clicking the “Cookie Settings” button available in our website’s footer, if such a button is available in the location from which you use our Services.

Most browsers have certain cookie control features (usually located in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser), which will (depending on your browser settings) allow you to decide how to handle each new cookie in a variety of ways, provide you with the ability to delete all Cookies that are already on your computer and to prevent Cookies from being placed.

You can also change your mobile device settings (e.g., iPhone, iPad, Android devices) to control whether you see online interest-based ads.

Please note that any such changes may result in you having to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.

5.       What is the Google Analytics Cookie and how is it used?

Our Services uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”) which is based on Cookie technology. The information generated by the Cookie is usually sent to and stored in a Google server in the USA. On behalf of WSC, Google will use the generated information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide the website operator with additional services connected with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not collated with other data by Google. We have also taken measures to anonymize such IP address and to limit its retention period by default. Further information about the privacy practices Google Analytics is available at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. Further information about your option to opt-out of Google Analytics is available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

6.       “Do Not Track” Signals

Your browser settings may also allow you to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal when you visit various websites. Whilst we do not change our practices in response to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from a browser or mobile application, you can manage your Cookies preferences, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them, through your browser settings and our Cookie Banner as instructed above. Please bear in mind that disabling Cookies may complicate or even prevent you from using the Services. To learn more about “Do Not Track” signals, you can visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com/.

7.       Opt-Out Of Sale/Sharing For Targeted Advertising

Under some US data protection laws, like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) or the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act, our sharing of certain internet activity and device information with third parties through Cookies may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of personal information for targeted advertising. We do so in pursuit of the business and commercial purposes described in section 3 above.

    For the purposes of the CCPA, in the last 12 months we have “sold” or “shared” (for targeted advertising) Internet or Other Electronic Network Activity Information, Geolocation Data, and Commercial Information with our analytics and advertising partners.

    8.       Modification

      We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change this Cookie Policy at any time.  Such change will be effective immediately following posting of the revised Cookie Policy on our website, and your continued use of the website thereafter means that you accept those changes.
