Cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies

We use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies (collectively called “cookies”) to enhance your experience with us. We use cookies on our websites as well as in our services. Below, we explain how we use cookies and what choices you can make regarding our cookies.

Please also refer to the Glase Privacy Policy regarding the handling of your personal data.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that store information on your mobile phone, computer, or other device. These are sent from Glase’s or our partners’ web servers and stored on your device as described below. They enable the company placing cookies on your device to recognise you on websites, in services, or in browser sessions. Cookies have many areas of application, such as:

  • Cookies can remember your login details so that you don’t have to enter them the next time you log into a service.
  • Cookies contribute to a better user experience by optimising and improving services by analysing which parts of a service are used and the extent to which they are used.
  • Cookies can be used to remember what information has already been displayed so that the same information is not displayed every time you use a service.
  • Cookies help provide you with relevant content and ads by collecting information about how you use our services.

We use different cookies:

  • Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire when you close your browser or app.
  • Permanent cookies are cookies that remain on your computer until you remove them or they expire.
  • First-party cookies are cookies set by the website you visit.
  • Third-party cookies are cookies set by a third-party website.

Web beacons are small transparent graphic images that may be found in the e-mails we send to you. Similar technologies are technologies that store information in your browser or in your device in a manner similar to cookies and web beacons.

Why do we use cookies?

The cookies we use usually improve the services we offer you. Some of the services actually need cookies to work, while others simply exist to make our services better for you. Generally, we categorise cookies and their use as follows:

  • Necessary cookies are absolutely necessary in order to provide our basic services, such as our payment options or our customer portal. Our services would not work without these cookies.
  • Analysis cookies provide overall analytical information regarding your use of our services. Some of our services may not work fully if you block these cookies.
  • Functional cookies enable us to save settings such as language selection or whether to prepopulate your information. Without these types of cookies, we may not always be able to tailor our services to your requests.
  • Secure cookies make our services and your data safe and secure by helping us detect fraud and protect your data. Since this is an essential aspect of our services, these cookies are necessary.

Marketing cookies

Glase uses marketing cookies to personalise and improve your experience on our website, in e-mail marketing, and in third-party advertising.

  • Automated marketing: Cookies from our platform for marketing automation enable us to be more relevant in our communication with you. Based on personal data provided voluntarily by the user, for example through forms on our website, Glase uses this information to improve the ability to deliver more relevant information on the website and through advertising channels.
  • Analysis: Analysis cookies collect information on how users interact with our website and provide us with knowledge about overall interaction patterns rather than individual user behaviour. This data helps us improve your experience of the service.
  • Advertising: Advertising cookies collect information about your activities on and interest shown in our website so that we can show you relevant, targeted advertising in third-party channels (search engines, social media, and ad networks).

How can you control Glase’s use of cookies?

Your browser or device usually allows you to change the settings for the use and scope of cookies. When using a browser to access the services, you can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is sent. Each browser is unique, so look in the browser “Help” menu to learn how to change your cookie settings. Go to the settings of your browser or device to learn more about adjusting the settings for cookies. You can, for example, choose to block all cookies, only accept first-party cookies, or delete cookies when you close your browser.
