Hali Cookies Policy

We mentioned in our privacy policy that we use cookies and related technologies (collectively referred to as 'cookies') to provide you with the services accessible through our website at www.hali.ie, including all related information, tools, technology, mobile applications, content, and services available from that website (the 'Site').

This policy explains how we use cookies and similar technologies on our Site (the 'Cookie Policy').

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is small piece of data sent from a website and stored on your computer or device. Almost all websites use cookies and they have several different functions. The main purposes for cookies are to: (a) Allow the site to function correctly and to help keep it secure. (b) Make the site easier to use by remembering information that you've entered, to recognise you as a site user and to personalise your visit. (c) Collect basic information about the way you have used the site. The cookies may also allow us to record additional information on the webpages you have visited and the contents of those webpages, any information you input, your referring URL or IP address, your time of visit and related session information, your requested page, web browser type, USR agent, status of request (successful reply), cookies, number of bytes in the response and query string and any information or technical detail your browser is sending to us.

DO WE USE COOKIES?

Yes, like most websites and applications we use cookies in the course of providing you with our Site. We may use technologies like cookies, pixels and local storage to deliver, secure, and understand products, services, and ads.

These technologies help us understand how our Site is being used, help you navigate our Site, help remember your preferences, and generally improved your experience in using our Site. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you might see online is more relevant to you and your interests.

HOW LONG DO COOKIES LAST?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted. When you return to that website (or visit other websites that use the same cookies) the website provider or its service providers can recognise the persistent cookies they have set and recognise your browsing device.
