User trust is important to us, and we at Api Box are therefore concerned about protecting your privacy. One important aspect of this is to provide you with as much information as possible about how we use your personal data, including how we use local data storage and similar technology.
Local data storage involves storing different types of data locally on your device through your web browser. Locally stored data may, for example, contain user settings, information about how you browse our website, which web browser you use, which advertisements have been displayed, and similar behaviour on websites with which we collaborate. Locally stored data may be used to customize the content and features on our services to make your visits more convenient and meaningful. One method of local data storage is cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device (PC, cell phone or tablet) that allow us to recognize your web browser. Cookies contain information primarily about your web browser and any activity that has occurred in it. They help us to ensure the security and optimal functioning of our website, once you leave our website these are deleted (security cookies and session cookies) and collect information about what products our internet visitors are interested in and how they navigate through our website to make our online offers more attractive to users (tracking cookies).
We use local data storage for a number of purposes, such as: to enable us to perform our services; to bring you relevant, personalized content when you visit our websites; to measure and analyse traffic on our website; to improve our services; and to target targeted advertising. Further details on these topics are set out below:
We use local storage of data in connection with advertising activities. This allows us to know whether and how often the user has seen an advertisement or a certain type of advertisement, and how long ago the user saw it. We also use local data storage to build segments and target groups for marketing purposes and to target specific advertisements.
We use various measurement tools that provide us with statistics and analyses relating to our services. These tools allow us to recognize the web browser over time and to find out whether the user has visited the website before and if so how often. These tools offer us the possibility to get an overview of how many unique users we have and how they use our services. We also use the information we have collected and analysed to develop and improve our services; for example, by finding out which services generate a lot of traffic or seeing if a service is performing optimally.
Local storage of data is required and necessary in order to allow you to use our services, such as information about your settings, which tells us how the services should be presented in your web browser. We also use local data storage to adapt our services to your use as best as possible.
You can disable cookies or set your browser to notify you when you are sent a cookie. The settings in your web browser normally display a list of all cookies that have been stored to provide you with an overview and, if you wish, to delete unwanted cookies. Normally, you can indicate that you accept the storage of cookies from the websites you visit or from third parties affiliated with those websites. You can also choose to be notified each time a new cookie is stored. Guidance on how to do this in different web browsers is provided below. Your web browser normally stores cookies in a specific folder on your hard drive so that you can also examine the content in more detail. However, the cookies that are present on the website change frequently, and not all cookies are equally important. Therefore, if Api Box changes the use of tracking cookies, you will be notified with a message. In addition, services are available that have been specially developed to provide users with an up-to-date list of cookies and other tracking mechanisms.
