The terms “Cabochon Management Ltd.”, “we”, “us” as used in this Cookie Policy collectively refer to Cabochon Management Ltd. and its affiliates.

2                      WHAT IS COOKIE?

2.1                   Cabochon Management Ltd. uses cookies and other technologies to enable features at the Services, in e-mails or e-mail advertisements, or in advertisements on other Services. A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. Cookies, among other things, speed navigation through our Services, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our Services, help us provide you with customized content and allow us to learn about your visit.

2.2                   Some cookies require your consent, while others are exempt.

2.2.1    Cookies exempt from consent: Strictly necessary cookies guarantee functions without which you would not be able to use the Services as intended. They are stored on your computer during the current browser session. Strictly necessary cookies ensure that, when you call up the functionalities of a website, you are shown a version that has a broad-band-related data quantity corresponding to that of the Internet connection you are using. Such cookies also guarantee that, when you change pages, the function of changing from http to https takes place. Cookies of this type also store your decision regarding the use of cookies on our Services. Your consent is not required for strictly necessary cookies.

2.2.2    Cookies subject to consent: All other cookies that are not strictly necessary to use the Services still fulfil important tasks. Without these cookies, functions intended for your convenience on our Services, such as your personal settings or automatic filling in form functions could not be retained and would therefore have to be re-entered on every page.

2.3                   Types of Cookies We Use. Cabochon Management Ltd. uses four types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies and cookies for marketing purposes.

2.3.1    Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Services and use its features. These temporary cookies only last only as long as your web browser is open, and are used for technical purposes such as enabling better navigation on our Services. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided – for example, remembering previous actions (e.g. entered text) when navigating back to a page in the same session. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears.

2.3.2    Performance cookies are stored on your computer for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to our Services and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. These cookies do not save information that would allow the user to be identified. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore made anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website, and with it the user experience.

2.3.3    Functional cookies enable the Services to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, languages choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalized functions. For example, when you book a room, our Services can offer you local tax information if it uses a cookie to remember the region in which you are currently located. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.

2.3.4    Cookies for advertising purposes are used to display advertisements to users that are more targeted and adapted to their interests. They also are used to limit the frequency with which an advertisement appears and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They register whether a person has visited a website or not. This information may be shared with third-parties advertisers. Cookies for improving target group appeal and advertising are often linked with page functionalities of third-party providers.

2.4                   First-Party Cookies:  Some of the cookies are used exclusively by Cabochon Management Ltd., and therefore are called “first-party cookies”. These cookies include functional cookies to remember a user’s language selection or performance cookies to identify repeated website visits from the same user. Other permanent cookies include those use to improve the user experience on our website, including recording whether a user closed an auto pop-up message so that we do not display it again.

2.5                   Third-Party Cookies:  As explained in our <<Privacy Policy>>, Cabochon Management Ltd. uses third-party service providers to help us manage, carry out and improve our advertising. These parties may set cookies to help us collect information and provide you with advertisements that we believe would be relevant for you. From time to time, these third parties also may assist us by providing certain statistical and analytics information in relation to our marketing practices.
