Cookies Statement

By using Novo SST’s website, you agree that we may store cookies on your computer, in accordance with our privacy policy and this statement.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small data files stored in your browser or on your hard drive. They allow a website to identify the terminal whenever the user visits the website. They allow websites to operate more efficiently in order to improve the user’s experience whenever he visits a website and to provide information to site administrators.

Use of cookies by Novo SST

Novo SST uses cookies to collect information every time you visit its website. We use cookies for various reasons, most often to distinguish you from other users of our website and to allow us to compile statistics about the use of the websites. Cookies also help us ensure we provide you with a positive experience, a better content and a personalized visit to our websites.

Use of Web beacons by Novo SST

Novo SST may also use tracing technologies called web beacons to collect information about your visit to Novo SST’s websites. Web beacons are small graphic images embedded in the web content and emails sent in HTML format and are usually invisible to users.

Like cookies, web beacons allow us to know which pages and content that the users access when visiting Novo SST’s websites. In addition, when we send e-mails in HTML format to our users (as opposed to plain text), this technology may be integrated into the emails. Through Web beacons, we can determine whether e-mails or links have been opened, identify global trends and individual usage of our websites and generate statistics on the use of our websites, which allows us to provide users with more relevant content or information on our services.

Web beacons are often used jointly with cookies. However, unlike cookies, it is impossible to refuse them when they are inserted by a normal web page. It is possible however to refuse them when they are introduced by emails. If you do not wish to receive web beacons by e-mail, you can disable HTML images or refuse HTML emails by selecting the display option «text only» in your e-mail client settings. You can also reduce the functionality of web beacons by setting your browser to refuse cookies or to ask you every time if you want to accept cookies.
