5. What Are Cookies?

5.1 A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site´s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser´s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

6. How Do We Use Non-personal Information We Collect from Cookies?

6.1 As you shop on our Website, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other shoppers so your shopping cart is only available to you. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from seeing unnecessary advertisements or requiring you to log in more than is necessary for security. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server´s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our Website and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any Personal Information about you and in the event a cookie would entail Personal Information we do not store such Personal Information provided to us.

6.2 The cookie is necessary in order: – for you to take advantage of our online stores since the cookie will remember which dictionary you have access to, – for the browser to remember your identification when you log in, and – for you to use your WordFinder product and/or services and your subscription with the right functionality.

6.3 If you want to disable the use of Cookies you may do so by changing your web browser settings. As the use of cookies is necessary to enable certain features on the Website these features may cease to function if you disable cookies.

7.1 We may enter into alliances, partnerships or other business arrangements with third parties who may be given access to Personal Information including your name, mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address for the purpose of providing you with information regarding products and services that we think will be of interest to you. In connection with alliances, partnerships or arrangements, we may also provide certain Personal Information to third parties if we have determined that the Personal Information will be used in a responsible manner by a responsible third party. For example, some of our partners operate stores or provide services on our site, while others power offerings developed by us for your use. We also use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending e-mail and processing credit card payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our partners and other third parties may have access to your Personal Information for use in connection with such business activities.

7.2 As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings including the Personal Information since customer-, e-mail-, and visitors information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such Personal Information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or any dissolution.
