The Policy on Cookies and Other Technologies applies to the website https://piamp.net/ (the “Website”). It describes how the Project for Interventions with Minor Prostitutes (the “Piamp”) deals with information collected about you when you browse the Website. In this Policy on Cookies and Other Technologies, the term “cookie” or “cookies” encompasses other industry standard technologies, including pixels, locally shared objects, Flash cookies, web beacons, web bugs, device fingerprinting or hidden identifiers.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is an alphanumeric online identifier that is stored on your computer, tablet or mobile device (“Device”) when you browse the Website. It allows us to collect information about you and track your use of the Website. Doing so allows us to improve Website performance, fulfill your requests related to the Website, remember your Website preferences/settings, optimize your user experience on the Website and personalize the services and content on the Website, in accordance with applicable legislation.

Why do we use cookies?

Cookies allow us to improve your browsing experience by remembering the pages of our Website that you have already visited and, in some cases, by saving your preferences to personalize your next visit.

We set cookies on your Device for the following purposes:

  • to analyze Website audience;
  • to store the contents of a shopping cart when you place an order;
  • to allow you to make online purchases;
  • to share information on social media.

Which types of cookies does the Piamp use?

When you browse the Website, different types of cookies are set and saved on your device. Below is some more information about cookies.

Use of IP addresses and web logs

We may also use your IP address and browser type to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our website and to improve the service we offer to you. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on the internet. Your IP address might also be used to gather broad demographic information.

We may perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (e.g. google.com) to more accurately gauge our users’ demographics.

Information from these types of cookies and technologies is not combined with information about you from any other source and will not personally identify you.

HTML email web beacons

Our marketing-related emails contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether our emails are opened and, combined with other technology, verify any clicks through to links within the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to you and to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish for the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should choose not to click on links that we send you. This information may be connected to your personal identity.
