Cookie Policy

Thank you for visiting www.marinethinking.com and your interest in our Company, Products and Services. In this Cookie Policy, we, Marine Thinking Inc., would like to inform you how our website uses cookies, what they are, what purposes they serve and how you can manage them.  

What do we use cookies? 

In general, we use cookies to distinguish users and visitor of our website from another and to make the website secure and appealing as possible. Doing so we follow the strict provisions of Canada’s Anti-spam legislation (“CASL”) and the EU`s Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive (“PECD”). 

If you have any questions or concerns about the cookies, we use please contact us using the details provided at the end of this policy. Please read this Cookie Policy in line with our Privacy Policy as it forms part of our Data Protection Regime. 

What types of cookies do we use? 

We use both first party cookies, which are issued from our website’s own domain, and third-party cookies, which belong to and are managed by other parties, such as our partners or service providers.  

  

The cookies used on our website can be divided into two categories: 

 

  1. Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that will be deleted from your device once you close your browser. They are used to remember your device as you move within our website.  

  2. Persistent cookies: These are longer-lasting cookies that remain on your device even after you close your browser. They are used to recognize your device each time you use our website and to remember your preferences.  

 

Nonetheless, the classification as technically necessary or technically non-necessary also determines the cookies we use: 

 

Technically necessary cookies 

Technically necessary cookies are required for our website to function properly; they enable you to navigate our website efficiently and use its functional features. An example of this is, the reminder of recently performed actions (e.g., entered text) when you return to a page within the same session. 

 

Technically non-essential cookies 

Technically non-essential cookies are not necessary for the proper functioning of our website, but they enable us to improve the content of our website, compile statistics for internal market analysis purposes, provide you with a more personalized online experience or provide additional features. In particular we use analytical cookies. 

 

Analytical cookies
Analytical cookies are used by third parties. These cookies allow third parties to recognize that you have visited our website. We and our third-party providers may also combine information obtained from these cookies with Personal Information available from other sources, including data collected about you when you use other websites and data collected about you when you are offline, whether on our website or data maintained by the third-party provider.

You can object to the collection and processing of this data by Google Analytics by setting an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
