Greenval Cookies Policy

The company Greenval Insurance DAC (“Greenval”) is committed to delivering the best possible service to you and we wish to maintain the confidence that you place in us. We would like to provide you with clear information about how we use and store cookies from our website www.greenval-insurance.com and/or our mobile application on your device.  

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text, image or software files that are placed and stored on your computer, your smartphone or all other devices used for accessing the internet when you visit our website and/or use our application. The term “cookie” used in this policy should be understood broadly and can also refer to alternative technologies used to store information on your device (such as Flash cookies, fingerprinting, invisible pixels, HTML5 localStorage, tokens etc.), depending on which device you are using.

Cookies are very useful and enable an internet site to recognise you, log when you visit a particular page, provide a secure connection to a website and enhance your user experience by improving your experience of a website, securing your connection and/or adapting the content of a page to your areas of interest.

The information stored by the cookies on your computer, during a limited period of validity, may relate to the particular webpages you have visited on that computer; advertisements you have clicked on; the type of browser you use; your IP address; and the information you have provided to a website (the use of the cookie meaning that you avoid having to provide the information again).

 

Types of cookies installed by the Site www.greenval-insurance.com:

1. Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the website or the application and cannot be deactivated from our systems. They are usually only activated in response to actions you perform that match a service request, such as setting up your privacy preferences, logging in, or filling out forms.

Strictly necessary cookies expire after 365 days.

2. Functional cookies

These cookies store your personal preferences. They collect information about your choices and preferences and allow our site to be customized by remembering the parameters you chose. They are used to make your web experience as user-friendly as possible.

3. Performance cookies

In order to customise our website or our application to the requirements of our visitors, we measure the number of visits, the number of pages viewed, the activity of the visitors on the website and how often visitors return. These cookies enable traffic analysis statistics to be compiled. From this analysis, the contents of the website can be developed and improved to enhance user experience.

If you deactivate these cookies, we will not be able to analyse your behavior on the website or the application; consequently, we might not be able to customise content for you.

4. Targeting cookies

These cookies can be activated on our website by our advertising partners. They can be used by these companies to create profiles on your interests, and to offer you targeted advertising on other sites. They only work by identifying your browser and device.

Please note: preventing the installation of advertisers on your computer will not remove all advertisements from websites you visit. Your refusal to accept these cookies will only prevent the customisation of such advertisements to your areas of interest as deducted from your browsing history. 

Targeting cookies expire after 365 days.

5. Social media cookies

These cookies are associated with a domain name different from that of the page where the cookie is encountered. Third-party cookies are placed by a page object (an ad, for example) originating from a domain other than the one hosting the page. Most websites contain content originating from different sources (and therefore, different domains).

These cookies can be used by third-parties to:

  • provide us with services (such as Google Analytics services) allowing us to optimise our Website and/or Application; or
  • allow you to access content from third parties.

This can result in these third-party providers storing additional cookies on your device on which we have no control. In addition, these third-party providers might use the data stored in the related cookies for their own processing purposes we have no control over.

Consequently, we strongly recommend that you check the websites of any such third parties and their privacy policies for more information about their cookies and how you can manage them.
