Greetings Island Cookies Policy
Greetings Island uses certain monitoring and tracking technologies, such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags and scripts (collectively, “Cookies”). These technologies are used in order to maintain, provide and improve our website and services, and in order to provide our users with a better experience (for instance in order to track users’ preferences, to better secure our services, to identify technical issues and to monitor and improve the overall performance of our services).
What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Google Chrome or Safari) on your computer or mobile device. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of Cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognize you when you come back and respond appropriately.
Performance Cookies: This type of cookie helps us secure and maintain our services, and remembers your preferences for tools found on the services, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit.
Analytics Cookies: Every time someone visits our services, analytics services we use generate Cookies which can tell us whether or not you have visited the services in the past, and provide additional information regarding how our users use our services (such as regarding where users tend to click on our services). Your browser will tell us if you have these Cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual users we have and how often they visit the services.
Unless you are signed into our services, we cannot use these Cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics. For example, the number of visits to a page.
Registration Cookies: When you register and sign into our Services, we generate Cookies that let us know whether you are signed in or not.
Our servers use these Cookies to work out which account you are signed in with and if you are allowed to access to a particular service.
While you are signed into our services, we combine information from your registration Cookies with analytics Cookies, which we could use to identify which pages you have seen.
Advertising Cookies: These Cookies allow us to know whether or not you’ve seen an ad or a type of ad, how you interacted with such ad and how long it is since you’ve seen it.
We also set Cookies on certain other sites that we advertise on. If you receive one of those Cookies, we may then use it to identify you as having visited that site if you later visit our services. We can then target our advertising based on this information.
Third Party Integration Cookies: On some pages of our services, other organizations may also set their own cookies. They do this to track the performance of their applications that are integrated with our services, or to customize their services for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organization access the data in cookies we use on our services.

Some web browsers may transmit Do Not Track signals to websites with which the browser communicates, telling the site not to follow its online movements. Because of differences in how web browsers interpret this feature, it is not always clear whether Users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they are even aware of them. Therefore, we currently do not respond to such Do Not Track signals.
