What are Cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites function, to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. Cookies set by the operator of a website (in this case, 24VR srl) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than 24VR srl are called “third-party cookies”. Third-Party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Website (for example advertising, interactive content, interaction with social media sites, and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer or mobile device both when you visit our Website, and also when you visit certain other websites.
We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website and Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users and to enhance the experience of our Service. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes.
Use of Local Storage
Cookies are not the only way to store information on your computer or mobile device. 24VR srl stores additional information that is essential to the functionality of the Services in local storage. Local storage is similar to the storage of information in cookies, but never expires until our Services delete this information, or you delete it yourself. Please refer to the instructions specific to the type of browser you are using, or the specific mobile phone operating system you are using for instructions on how to delete local storage.
Other tracking technologies
Cookies are not the only way to track visitors to a website. 24VR srl and our third party partners may use other similar technologies such as clear GIFs (also known as “tracking pixels” and “web beacons”). Clear GIFs are small graphics files that contain an identifier that recognises when a user visits our Websites. This allows our third-party partners to monitor traffic patterns between websites, communicate with cookies, to understand if you have come from an advertisement displayed on a third party Website, to monitor the success of marketing campaigns and to improve site performance. These technologies typically rely on cookies to function, so disabling cookies in your browser will impair their functionality.
How can I control cookies?
You have the right to decide whether to allow cookies when using our Websites and Services. Most browsers allow you to control cookies as part of their settings and preferences. Please refer to your specific browser for instructions on how to disable, limit and delete cookies.

What information do we collect?
How do we use personal information?
When do we share your personal information?
From time to time, we may contact you with information about our products and services. Most marketing messages we send will be by email. For some marketing messages, we may use personal information we collect about you to help us determine the most relevant marketing information to share with you. In most cases our processing of your personal data for marketing purposes is based on our legitimate interest to provide you information about our current and future products, services and events. If you do not want to receive marketing messages from us, you will be able to tell us by selecting certain boxes on forms we use when we first collect your contact details. If you receive marketing email from us, you may unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions contained within the email. You may also opt-out from receiving marketing email from us, and any other promotional communications that we may send to you from time to time (e.g., by postal mail) by sending your request to us by email at email@example.com . Additionally, we allow you to view and modify settings relating to the nature and frequency of marketing communications that you receive from us as part of your user settings by logging into your account and changing your preferences. Please be aware that if you opt-out of receiving marketing email from us, it may take up to ten business days for us to process your opt-out request, and you may receive marketing email from us during that period. Additionally, even after you opt-out from receiving marketing messages from us, you will continue to receive administrative and transactional messages from us regarding your use of the Service.
How do we use online analytics services and tailored online marketing?
In our Services, we use Google Analytics and other third-party web analytics services. These third-party services use the kinds of technology described in the preceding sections to help us analyze how users use the Services, including by noting the URL that users visited before they came to our Services. These service providers will receive or directly collect the information collected by the technology, which they will use to evaluate your use of the Services. As described in the following paragraphs, we also use Google Analytics with the Services for certain purposes related to online marketing. You may wish to install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on, available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout, to prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics. We also allow other third parties, such as Google Analytics, Facebook and other ad networks and ad servers, to access their own cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone, or other device you use the Services. These tracking technologies enable these third parties to serve our tailored marketing to you while viewing other areas of the Internet, based on anonymous information collected while you are using the Services. We have implemented the following Google Analytics advertising features based on interests and location for the purposes of remarketing: retargeting and enhanced demographic tracking, including affinity audiences, custom affinity audiences, in-market audiences, similar audiences, demographic and location targeting, and demographics and interest reports. The parties that provide these technologies may offer you a way to opt out of targeted marketing as described below. Click the following link for more information on how Google uses data when you use the Site: https://policies.google.com/privacy You may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out Link and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out Link to opt-out of receiving tailored marketing from companies that participate in those programs, and if you are interested in learning about tailored browser marketing and how you can generally control cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored marketing (i.e., not just for our Site). You may also visit the Google Ads Settings page to opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising or customise Google Display Network ads. Please also see additional information here about Google Ad Settings for mobile apps. Be aware that you may still receive marketing content that is not tailored to your interests, even if you opt-out of tailored marketing, to the extent marketing technology is integrated into our Site. In addition, we are not responsible for any choices you make using any of the above opt-out links, and we do not control these opt-out methods or their continued availability or accuracy. You may also receive tailored in-application marketing content when using an application on a mobile device. Each mobile operating system provides its own instructions on how to prevent or opt-out of the delivery of tailored in-application marketing content.
How do we secure your personal information?
We take steps to help protect your data, including your personal information. The steps include protecting this data against accidental loss, unauthorised use, disclosure, and restricting access to personal information by our staff. The Service is hosted by a third-party hosting company that we have determined maintains various security controls and utilises TLS encryption for all internet communication with the Service. We also require all staff that administer and develop the service follow a series of controls, including strong passwords, the use of anti-virus and anti-malware software, disk encryption and other practices. We use various 3rd party processors to enable us to provide the Service, and as part of our vendor due-diligence, we review the security controls these processors have in place for appropriateness in relation to the type of data we collect. You should keep in mind, however, that the Service utilizes software, hardware, and networks, which from time to time require maintenance and experience problems beyond our control. Note that no data transmission over the public internet or encryption method can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you provide to us. You transmit information to us at your own risk.

What is our policy on children users of the Services?

Our Services are intended for use by a general audience, and no part of our Services is directed to children under 16.
