This Cookie Policy explains how Piece of Time ("Piece of Time," "we," "us," and "our") uses cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our websites at https://www.pieceoftime.us, ("Websites").  It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

In some cases we may use cookies to collect personal information, or that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website.  Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Piece of Time) are called "first party cookies."  Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies."  Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content, and analytics).  The parties that se these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first and third party cookies for several reasons.  Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies.  Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Properties.  Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics, and other purposes.  This is described in more detail below.

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit).

The law states that we can store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site.  For all other types of cookies, we need your permission.

You can learn more about who we are, how you can contact us, and how we process personal data in our Privacy Notice.

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.  You can exercise your cookie rights by setting your preferences in the Cookie Consent Manager.  The Cookie Consent Manager allows you to select which categories of cookies you accept or reject.  Essential cookies cannot be rejected as they are strictly necessary to provide you with services.

The Cookie Consent Manager can be found in the notification banner and on our website.  If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website, though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted.  You may also set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies.  As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser's help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising.  If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described in the table below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit):

Essential / Necessary

Essential or Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website.  The website cannot function properly without these cookies.

Statistics

Statistics cookies help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.

Marketing

Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites.  The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers.

Unclassified

Unclassified cookies are cookies that we are in the process of classifying, together with the providers of individual cookies.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Websites may also use so-called "Flash Cookies" (also known as Local Shared Objects or "LSOs") to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention, and for other site operations.

If you do not want Flash Cookies stores on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel.  You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to "information" on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

Please not that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites.  These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in.  They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements.  This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you.  The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details, or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons.  Please, therefore, re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.
