Information about cookies

The company SPM MANUFAKTURA s.r.o., ID No.: 10898115, with registered office at Nad Pomníkem 467/9, Hlubočepy, 152 00 Prague 5, registered in the Commercial Register kept at the Municipal Court in Prague, file No. C 350381, which is the operator of the website www.gaen.cz uses cookies to collect and process personal data for the purpose of ensuring the functioning of the website and its improvement, setting user preferences, generating statistical data or targeting advertising. 

 

Below you can find out what cookies are, what they are used for and how they are used, or perhaps what to do if you want nothing to do with them. If you would like to learn more about how we process personal data, please see our Privacy Policy.

 

What are cookies?  

Cookies are small data files that are stored on your computer or phone when you visit a website or use an online service.  

They are mainly used to make websites and services work at all or to make them work more efficiently.  

 

Example: imagine you put an item in your basket but then your computer shuts down, the internet goes down or you just leave the website and after a while you change your mind about buying the item after all. Thanks to cookies, the website is able to recognise that it is you who is returning and what items are left in your basket.

What is it for? 

Some cookies are technically required for our website and services to work at all. We must therefore always use them for the site to work at all, and we therefore most often refer to them as "essential". 

 

Example: I'm sure you've been asked by a website to verify that you're a human being and not a computer program trying to attack the site. Most of the time you have to copy some text from an image, or select all the photos of fire hydrants among a series of images. Cookies in this category will remember that you are human and will not burden you and the site's servers with repeated authentication.

Other cookies allow a website to remember information about your preferences as a user, such as what language to display when you visit again. Because of their function, we therefore refer to these cookies as "preference" cookies. 

 

Example: have you ever visited a bilingual website? I'm sure you have. The moment you set your preferred language, it would certainly be very annoying to have to set it every time you visit a website, or even every time you click through to each sub-page of the same website. These cookies will remember your settings and the page will always be displayed in your preferred language.

 

Other cookies help us to collect information about your use of the website, such as the number of visitors to the website or the amount of time you spend on different parts of the website. As their name suggests, these cookies are referred to as "statistical" cookies. 

 

Examples include: the number of visitors to the site, unused bookmarks and unread articles, the number of people who do not complete an order due to an overly complex shopping process, and many other statistics that help us and you create a better experience on our site.

 

Last but not least, cookies can be used to help us serve you relevant ads, including on other websites or social networks. For example, these cookies prevent us from showing you an advert for glass display cases for butterfly collecting when you search for football shorts for your son. We refer to these cookies as "marketing" cookies.

 

Example: imagine you order a t-shirt with a print on it. In time, you'll probably want to outfit it with another piece. Cookies from this category will ensure that after a while, for example, when you start a YouTube video, you won't be bothered by an offer of a good insurance deal when you might not even have a car, but you'll see an ad telling you that we have new clothing designs. 

 

What services are related to the use of cookies? Which of our providers use cookies? 

As we use some of these providers such as Google, Facebook etc. not only in connection with cookies, we provide summary information about them in our Privacy Policy.   

 

How can I prevent the use of cookies?

We use all cookies on the basis of your consent, except essential cookies which we may use because of our legitimate interest in the proper operation of the website.  

You can withdraw this consent, either partially or completely, at any time by visiting the Cookie Settings section at the footer of our website. 

You can change your cookie settings by using the correct settings on your browser. Most browsers allow you to refuse the storage of cookies or to delete those already stored on your computer. However, the individual procedure varies from browser to browser. The individual procedures can be found here:
