This cookie policy was updated  05.02.2021 (v1.0)

We like you. We want you to like us. Which is why giving our members a great experience sits at the heart of what we do here at Hunome – and cookies help us do that. 

Our Cookie Policy explains how Hunome uses cookies and similar technologies on or in relation to our website to recognize you when you visit our services. Here we explain what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights and ways to control our use of them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files sent by a web server and placed on your computer or mobile device to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information when you visit a website. 

When you visit our website and use Hunome services, we may collect information and personal data from you automatically through cookies or similar technology. This is helpful for session-management (keeping you logged-in over the course of a single user-session), login persistence (the “Remember Me” or “Stay Logged In” feature you see in many apps and websites), and multi-tab browsing.

You have the ability to accept, customize or decline cookies on the Hunome website and in your browser settings. Please read more about this in the “How can you manage and control cookies?” section below. 

Cookies can be classified as either “essential” or “non-essential” cookies. 

Essential cookies are cookies that are either used solely to carry out or facilitate the transmission of communications over a network, or strictly necessary to provide an online service which you have requested (for example our website or a service on our website). Non-essential cookies are used to analyse your behaviour on a website (‘analytical’ cookies). Essential cookies are automatically placed on your computer or device when you access or take certain actions on our website. Non-essential cookies and other technologies are only placed on your computer or device if you have consented to us doing so. 

Cookies can also be classified as either “persistent” or “session” cookies, depending on how long they last after they are placed on your browser. Persistent cookies will remain valid until its set expiry date or if you manually delete them from your browser, whichever occurs first. Session cookies last for as long as you keep your browser open. They expire at the end of the user session when you close your browser.  Session cookies are temporary; when you close your browser, your computer will automatically delete them all. Some session cookies are essential cookies to keep you logged in as you navigate. Likewise, some persistent cookies are essential cookies that save your customised preferences.

Finally, cookies can also be classified as either “first party” or “third party” cookies’. First party cookies are cookies placed on your device by our website domain. Third party cookies are cookies placed on your device by third party website domains. They enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website for analytics purposes.The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer when it visits the Hunome website. 

Why do we use cookies?

Hunome uses cookies to ensure that our website works and to make our website easier to navigate and more user-friendly. We use cookies  to establish whether your browser has previously accessed our website, to analyse the use and performance of our website and service. We also use cookies to identify you when you visit our website and as you navigate our website, to distinguish you from other users and ‘remember’ you, to authenticate you, to determine if you are logged in, to keep you logged in, and to optimize, improve and personalize your online experience. We also use cookies as an element of the security measures used to protect user accounts, including preventing fraudulent use of login credentials, and to protect our website and services.

To do this, cookies gather information about the users of Hunome, their behaviors, and the equipment they use. Cookie data does not reveal your name or other personal information, and your identity cannot be determined based on cookies alone – it  just identifies you as the same browser that visited earlier. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal data that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. We do not use a cookie to store sensitive information. 

To understand in detail how we use your personal information, please read Hunome’s Privacy Policy.
