Hi and welcome to the Copersucar cookie policy.

The purpose of this policy is to provide you, the user of the Copersucar website, with clear and accessible information about cookies and the role they play in improving the browsing of our content, in addition to the options for configuring them.

  1. What are cookies and other similar technologies?

Cookies are text files downloaded on your device when you visit a site. They are useful for allowing a site to recognize the user’s device. You will find more information about cookies at: www.youronlinechoices.eu or www.allaboutcookies.org.

The term cookie actually describes a series of technologies, including:

pixel tags (transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an e-mail to indicated they were viewed),

mobile device identifiers, and

storage on the Web used in computer software or on mobile devices.

We will use the cookie throughout this policy to cover all these technologies, but we will provide you with all details about them, so that you can make conscious choices about the configurations of cookies.

Cookies serve several purposes, such as allowing efficient browsing between pages, remembering preferences and, generally speaking, enhancing the user’s experience. They can also help to ensure that the ads you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

There are several different categories of cookies, including:

Session and persistent cookies

  1. Session cookies – are cookies that expire once you close your web browser; and
  2. Persistent cookies – are cookies that have to remain on your device for a defined period or until you exclude them.

Proprietary and third-party cookies

  1. Proprietary cookies – are cookies defined by the site you are accessing at the time, whether by us, or by a third party on our behalf;
  2. Third-party cookies – are cookies defined by a different party from that of the site you are accessing. If you visit the Copersucar site and another party defines a cookie through that site, it will be a third-party cookie.

Cookies also differ according to the purpose they are used for, including:

Type of cookie  Purpose

  • Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are essential so that you can use the resources of our services, like storing the user logged in and active session information. These cookies are essential for supporting the main functionality of the site, such as providing a secure log-in.
  • Performance cookies: These cookies collect data about how our visitors browse our site. For example, which pages visitors access most, and whether they receive error messages from Web pages. These cookies collect anonymous data about the pages visited. All data that these cookies collect is aggregated and, therefore, anonymous. They are only used to improve how our services function. Web analysis that uses cookies to gather data and enhance a site’s performance is classified in this category. For example, they can be used for test projects to assure users of a consistent appearance. This category does not include cookies used for behavioral/targeted advertising networks.
  • Functionality cookies: These cookies enable a site to memorize the choices you make (like your user name, language or the region where you are located) and provide enhanced and more personal services. These cookies can also remember the changes you made to the text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can personalize. The data these cookies collect can be anonymous and cannot control your browsing activities on other sites. These cookies memorize the options you make to improve your experience. If the same cookie is used for redirecting, it should also be included in the “Directing or advertising cookies” category. It must also include cookies used to offer a specific function, but when this function includes cookies used for behavioral/directed advertising networks, it they should also appear in the “Directing or advertising cookies” category.
  • Directing of advertising cookies: These cookies are used to provide advertisements that are most relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement, as well as helping to measure the efficacy of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed on advertising networks with the site operator’s permission. They recall that you accessed a given site, and this data is shared with other organizations, like advertisers. It is very common for directing or advertising cookies to be linked to the functionalities of the site provided by other organizations. These cookies collect data about your browsing habits to make the advertisement relevant for you and your interests.
