Agrecalc Cookies Policy - Important Information

Last updated September 13, 2022

Like most websites, we use cookies to help provide the best possible experience to all our visitors. 

This Cookie Policy explains how Agrecalc (“Company”, “we”, “us”, and “our”)
uses cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our websites
at https://agrecalc.com and app.agrecalc.com (‘Websites”). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.
In some cases we may use cookies to collect personal information, or that becomes
personal information if we combine it with other information.

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 work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Agrecalc,  are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. The cookies used on this website have been categorised based on the categories found in the International Chamber of Commerce UK Cookie guide. A list of all the cookies used on this website by category is set out below.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required
for technical reasons in order for our Websites 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 to enhance the experience on our Online Properties. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and
the purposes they perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies
served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit).

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise
your cookie rights by setting your preferences in the Cookie Consent Manager. The
Cookie Consent Manager allows you to select which categories of cookies you accept or reject. Essential cookies cannot be rejected as they are strictly necessary
to provide you with services.
The Cookie Consent Manager can be found in the notification banner website. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted. You may also set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. As the  means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.

What about other tracking technologies, like web
beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or  communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Websites may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations. Sometimes this type of cookie is also referred to as a ‘supercookie’.

If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the
settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

Removing Supercookies 

Supercookies are being cracked down on more and more by browsers and legislation. Many browsers will now advertise advanced privacy features, allowing users more control over persistent cookies and supercookies. For example, in 2021, Firefox blocked supercookies from tracking users across multiple websites. 

Flash cookies can be removed by using the Flasher Settings Manager to remove them. It is worth noting that Adobe Flash Player is no longer supported, and it is recommended that you uninstall Flash player. This will prevent future flash cookies as well. Persisting flash cookies as well as zombie cookies can be removed using software such as CCleaner. 

ISP UIDH supercookies cannot be deleted. An ISP will generally always be able to track you as they store their own data on their private servers. The best way to minimise the data harvested by ISP supercookies is making use of a VPN. 

Do you serve targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example,
changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.
Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.

Can I use this website without cookies?

By using our website, you consent to cookies being stored by us and our providers, you can update your preferences at anytime by visiting our Cookie Preferences page.

Should you really not wish to allow cookies, you can configure your browser to reject cookies set by us or our providers. The aboutcookies.org website provides more information about how to block cookies and/or remove existing cookies. Please note that disabling cookies may prevent some parts of our website working correctly for you.
