1.3.1 IP addresses

An IP address is a unique numerical code that identifies your computer when you access the Internet. IP addresses allow computers and servers to recognise and communicate with each other. The IP addresses from which visitors appear to be sending their messages are recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes. This information will usually also be used in its entirety for analyses of the use and functioning of websites.

1.3.2 Cookies

When you visit us online, cookies are usually placed on your computer or other internet-enabled device. These cookies allow the website to remember your computer or device and serve multiple purposes. If you receive a notification in the form of a banner asking for your permission to place cookies, if you do not give permission, we will only place functional cookies (no permission is required for this because they do not infringe on your privacy) and analytical cookies that have been set up in a privacy-friendly way (no permission is required for this either). Cookies do not provide us with any information about your e-mail address or any other information that can be traced back to you. We use the information to determine the number of unique visitors to our websites and trends in the geographical origin of our visitors, not to identify individual visitors.

1.3.3 Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics. More information about the use of Google Analytics by Regenesys can be found on the official website of Google Analytics. To give website visitors more choices about how Google Analytics collects their data, Google has developed the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. This add-on communicates with the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) to indicate that no information about the visit to the website should be sent to Google Analytics. The Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to the website itself or to other web analysis services.

1.3.4 Web beacons

A web beacon is a small image on a web page that allows certain information to be collected from your computer, such as your IP address, the time the content was viewed, the type of browser, and the presence of cookies previously placed by the same server. Regenesys uses web beacons only in accordance with applicable law, for example, to collect aggregate visitor statistics and manage cookies. You can disable certain web beacons by refusing the cookies that need to be placed for this purpose. When you visit the website, the web beacon may still record your IP address, but you will be an anonymous visitor, and no information from cookies will be stored. In some of our newsletters and other communications, we track recipients’ actions through embedded links in the messages, such as email open rates. We collect this information to understand the interests of our users and to improve the user experience of future visitors.

1.3.5 Location-based tools

Regenesys collects and uses the geographic location of your computer or mobile device. This location data is collected in order to provide you with information about services that we think may be of interest to you based on your geographical location, such as location-based subsidy schemes.

1.4 Social Media Widgets and Applications

Regenesys websites typically include features to enable the sharing of information via third-party social media applications. These social media applications collect and use information that you provide them. The personal data you provide through such social media applications is often collected and used by other members of the social media application in question. Such interactions are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide this application. We have no control over, and have no responsibility for, those companies or the way they use your information. For more information, please see the third party’s privacy statement.
