Cookie Policy

Welcome to our Cookie Policy!

The Cookie Policy is an integral part of our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. In the following paragraphs, you can learn more about cookies and their purpose, how we use them on the GoRules Products, and how you can control them. The cookies and similar technologies are not used on GoRules self-hosted products.

All terms starting with a capital letter have the same meaning as defined in our Privacy Policy or Terms of Service.

1. What are the cookies?

Cookies are text files (pieces of code) that contain small amounts of information, and they are stored on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are being sent to your browser by a website you visit, and they may be sent back to the originating website during future visits, or to another website that recognizes them. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to remember a user’s device and offer the best possible configuration.

On our GoRules Products, we use cookies to make our Service more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Also, some types of cookies enable us to collect information about the GoRules Products’s use and provide you with the relevant content.

2. Types of cookies

Cookies can be classified in three different ways: based on their duration, i.e., how long they last, where they originate from, and what is their purpose.

(a) Duration of cookies

In general, cookies may last a certain period of time (such as 179 days, 1 year, 2 years, etc.), or only while the website visit session lasts.

So, session cookies are temporary cookies that expire once you close your browser (or once your session ends).

Persistent cookies are cookies that remain on your hard drive until you erase them, or your browser does, depending on the cookie’s expiration date. All persistent cookies have an expiration date written into their code, but their duration can vary.

(b) Provenance (origin)

First-party cookies – cookies that are put on your device directly by us, i.e., the website that you have visited.

Third-party cookies - cookies placed on your device, not by us, but by a third party. Third-party cookies are usually related to an advertiser or an analytic system.

Whether a certain cookie falls into the category of first-party or third-party ones, you can check in the category ‘provider’ in the table below.

(c) Purpose

Our Products include several types of cookies, which all have different purposes - the necessary ones, statistical, and marketing cookies. In addition, from time-to-time unclassified cookies may appear.

Necessary cookies

Necessary cookies make the GoRules Products usable by enabling basic functions such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the Products. In other words, GoRules Products cannot function properly without these cookies.

Statistic cookies

Statistic cookies enable us to understand how visitors interact with GoRules Products, as they collect and report traffic information anonymously. Due to the implementation of these cookies, we can measure and improve the performance of our Products.

This way, we know which pages are the most and the least popular with our users, and we can also have an insight into how our visitors move around the Products.

All information collected by these cookies is collected anonymously and cannot be reasonably used to identify any particular individual.

These cookies are set up through our Products by our advertising partners, who may use marketing cookies to create a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements in other locations.

Please note that marketing cookies uniquely identify your browser and device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will not experience our targeted ads on other websites.

3. Use of external tools on our Products

Google Analytics

On the Products, we have integrated a special analysis service - Google Analytics.

Products’ analysis refers to the collection, recording and analysis of data regarding the behaviour of Products’ visitors. In other words, Google Analytics uses cookies to remember a visitor’s behaviour and provide us with reports on the Products’ visits and the visitors’ activity.

The operator of the Google Analytics tool is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies, as described in the table above. The information about your use of our Products generated by the Google Analytics cookies is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google might disclose these personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

We have activated IP anonymization, which means that Google shortens the IP addresses of our visitors within the Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are parties to the European Marketing Area Treaty. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this information to analyze your use of the Products to compile a report about your Products activities and provide us with other services associated with the Products and Service.

In addition to the instructions in Section 5. of this Cookie Policy, you may prevent the disclosure of the data generated by the cookie which refers to the use of the Products (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link.

This browser add-on notifies Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information about website visitors may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Apart from that, a cookie left behind by Google Analytics may be erased at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Google Analytics is explained in more detail here, while information on how Google processes data you may find on this link.

4. Legal basis for the use of cookies

We use cookies only if we have obtained your consent for that (through the cookie settings). In general, the legal basis for the use of cookies on the Products is the consent of the visitor, given in accordance with the Privacy Policy. The only exception is necessary cookies because the legal basis for their implementation is the performance of the agreement concluded with the data subject.

Please note that it is assumed that the device you use to access the Products is yours. If you access the Products from a device that you do not own, it will still be assumed that you have the authority to consent to the use of cookies on that device, in accordance with the Cookie Policy.

5. How to block cookies?

You can disable any type of cookies, except for the necessary ones.

To block the cookies, you can:

  1. Refuse cookies via the cookie banner and general cookie settings, or
  2. Adjust your browser settings.

When disabling the cookies via the cookie banner, please choose the option “Decline”. Also, please have in mind that you can change your cookie preferences at any time by clicking on the “Cookie settings” icon. Then, you can change the available sliders/checkboxes to “On” or “Off” and confirm the choice by clicking on “Save and close”.

You may need to refresh your page for your settings to take effect.

If you would like to disable cookies via browser, please note that most internet browsers accept cookies by their default setup. However, if you want to refuse or delete cookies, please refer to the help and support area on your browser for further instructions (e.g., Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Safari Desktop, Safari Mobile, Android Browser, Opera, Opera Mobile).

Browsers may have different procedures for managing and configuring cookies. But, if you decide to use your browser settings to block all cookies (including necessary cookies), please keep in mind that you may not be able to access all or some parts of our Products.
