Privacy Policy 

Last updated: 21 September 2018 

 

As the new General Data Protection Regulation entered into force, we update our Privacy Policy to comply with the new data protection requirements. 

John Snow Labs collects and manages user personal data according to the following Privacy Policy, with the goal of incorporating the “Privacy by Design” approach. This means that we think of privacy implications before building a new feature, we don’t ask for information we don’t need, and we protect the information we have. We take pride in treating our users’ privacy the way we’d like to be treated ourselves. By using JohnSnowLabs.com (the “Website”), or any of John Snow Labs’ products and services (the “Services”), you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. 

John Snow Labs is operated from the United States. If you are visiting the Website or Services from outside of the U.S., you agree to any processing of any personal information you provide us according to this policy.

Cookie Policy

Like many websites, we use cookie and other similar technologies (“cookie”). A “cookie” is a piece of information in the form of a small text file that is placed on a user’s hard drive. It is generated by a web page server, which is basically the computer that operates a web site. The information the cookie is set by the server and it can be used by that server whenever the user visits the Website. A cookie can be thought of as the user’s identification card, which tells the website when the user has returned.

Cookies are not computer programs or codes, they are not used to transfer viruses. Modern versions of browsers allow users to reject or opt out of receiving cookies as detailed below.

The type of cookies used on the Website is WooCommerce Cookies that make use of the following three cookies:

  • woocommerce_cart_hash
  • woocommerce_items_in_cart
  • wp_woocommerce_session_

The first two cookies contain information about the cart as a whole and help WooCommerce know when the cart data changes. The final cookie (wp_woocommerce_session_) contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find the cart data in the database for each customer. No personal information is stored within these cookies.

If you wish to delete any cookies that are placed on your computer, you may refer to the help and support section in your internet browser. Modern browsers allow users to reject, delete or opt out of receiving cookies.
