1. Our tracking technologies

1.1 What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small string of text that a website (or online service) stores in a user’s browser. It saves data in your browser about your visit to our site. It often includes a unique identifier (e.g., cookie #123). Cookies do not cause any harm to your computer and do not contain any viruses, trojans or other malware.

1.2 What are tags?

Tags are often referred to as pixels. They are short pieces of code written in JavaScript (programming language) that allow us to measure how you interact with our site and other sites. In marketing/advertising, tags are used to collect information about visitors to a website and how they behave on the site. The info collected is then sent to the respective marketing platform for processing and reporting.

2. What cookies and tracking technologies do we use?

2.1 First party cookies

If you create an account with us, we will use standard WordPress cookies for the management of the sign up process and general administration. These cookies will usually be deleted when you log out however in some cases they may remain afterwards to remember your site preferences when logged out.

This site offers newsletter or email subscription services and cookies may be used to remember if you are already registered and whether to show certain notifications which might only be valid to subscribed/unsubscribed users.

When you submit data to us through a form such as those found on contact pages or comment forms, cookies may be set to remember your user details for future correspondence.

In order to provide you with a great experience on this site we provide the functionality to set your preferences for how the site runs when you use it. In order to remember your preferences, we need to set cookies so that this information can be called whenever you interact with a page that is affected by your preferences.

2.2 Third party cookies

This site uses Google Analytics, one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solutions on the web, to help us understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit so we can continue to produce engaging content.

Vewd uses Vimeo for videos on our website. Vimeo sets essential cookies to enable certain features and remember your preferences. For example, cookies keep you logged in, allowing you to download items, and maintain your language and volume settings.

2.3 Conversion tags

These tags are specifically created to track the performance of an ad campaign. The conversion tag is connected to a specific page or event on our website and gets loaded once you view a specific page or event. The conversion data are only used to count the number of conversions that occur.

Vewd uses the LinkedIn Insight tag and the Twitter Universal Website tag to measure conversion on those social platforms.

2.4 Remarketing tags

These tags typically set a cookie with a unique ID number on the user’s browser. The list of ID numbers is continuously shared with the selected ad network (eg. LinkedIn). If users identified with an ID number visit a website where the ad network offers their ads, the network will use the ID to customize the relevant marketing. Remarketing based on the analysis of the person identified with the ID involves “profiling” according to GDPR art. 21. Vewd will only transfer the list of ID to ad networks if you have agreed to the transfer. You may at any time edit your browser settings as described in section 3.

Vewd use LinkedIn Insight Tag and HubSpot tracking code to present our products and company to people that have already shown interest in our products and company, or are likely to find our advertisement relevant and interesting.
