What cookies does Olympic Brewery use?
We use absolutely essential cookies, analytics cookies and functionality cookies on our site. The cookies we use are either ours or those of third parties. In particular, we use the following two (2) categories of cookies: • Session cookies (temporary cookies), that remain on your device until you leave our site.
• Stored cookies (permanent cookies), which remain on your device for a longer period of time or until they are deleted from you. Their length of stay on your device depends on the life of that cookie and your browser settings.
Absolutely necessary cookies
These cookies are required for our site to function and cannot be disabled. They are usually defined only as a response to the actions you take. You can set your browser to block cookies or alert you to cookies, but then some parts of the site will not work. These cookies do not store information that identifies you.
Analytics cookies allow us to measure its traffic and resources on our website so we can improve its performance. They also help us know, which pages are more or less popular and see how visitors are moving through the site. All information that these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow cookies to be active, you will not know when you visited our site and you will not be able to track its performance.
Functionality cookies allow the site to provide improved functionality and personalization. They may be designated by us or by third parties whose services have been added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, then some or all of these services may not work properly.
Some third parties also place cookies on your device, when you visit our site. These cookies collect data about your ad performance and interaction with our site. They can use this data to draw statistical conclusions and improve your visitor experience. These third parties act as independent processors and provide information on how they process personal data and information from cookies on the following websites:
Advertising cookies (or targeted cookies) collect information about the browsing habits associated with your device and are used to make ads more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used by services provided by third parties to the Website, such as “Like” or “Share” buttons, in addition to providing the required functionality. Third parties provide these services in return for recognizing that you (or more accurately your device) have visited a particular site. These third parties place promotional cookies on both the site visit, the use of their services and the navigation time off the Site. Local Shared Objects (“Flash cookies”)
In addition to the above cookies, we use the Site Local Shared Objects, also known as “Flash cookies”. These are used to enhance the user experience by storing, for example, preferences and settings [such as volume and mute settings and relative to the animation content on the Website]. Local Shared Objects are similar to browser cookies, but they can store more complex data than just plain text. By themselves, they can do nothing about the data on your computer. Like other cookies, they can only access the personal information you have entered on the site and are not accessible from other sites.

HTML e-mail statistics collection images (web beacons)
Our emails may contain a unique statistics collection pixel to let us know if our emails have been opened and to verify any clicks on the links within the email. We can use this information to determine, which of our messages are most relevant to you and to investigate, if users who do not open our messages want to continue receiving them. The pixel will be deleted, when you delete the email. If you do not want the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should choose to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML. Some of the site’s pages may also contain statistics to collect images and allow us to count visitors who have viewed our pages. They allow us to develop statistical information about the activities and characteristics that are most relevant to our consumers in order to provide more personalized content. Generally, they are not used to access personal data without your consent.
