Cookie Policy

Hello everybody my name is Raj (Roggie) Clark! Welcome to my website at www.bouncerank.com and thank you for your interest in this Cookie Policy. 

I have written this policy to inform you about the use of cookies we (that is me and the third parties acting on my behalf) place when you visit my website. 

Why do we ask for Consent and why do we have a Cookie Policy?

The provision of information about the use of cookies is required and set out in the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive (“PECD”). 

What are cookies and why we use them?

A cookie is a simple small file that is sent with the pages of a website you visit and can be stored by the web browser of your PC or device. Cookie files are automatically placed in the cookie folder which are effectively the “brain” of your browser and when you return to the same website, your browser then transmits the information stored in the Cookie back to the relevant website.

Cookies typically consist of a name and a value, and they can have various purposes depending on their classification, lifespan and type. Typically, cookies are classed as either first-party cookies, or third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by my website, whereas third-party cookies are created by a partner website. Each cookie also has a lifespan which can vary from a few minutes to a few years. 

As for the most frequently used way to categorize cookies, the classifications, the least privacy invasive type of cookies are Essential or Necessary cookies. As the name suggests those are essential or necessary to ensure that a website works properly and is secure and without them certain features of a website would simply not function. There are also Functional cookies, which allow a website to remember the options and personalization settings a user has made when visiting a website. Of course, there are also Analysis and performance cookies, which are used to monitor and improve the function and service of a website, track down problems, record visitor numbers, and provide analytics metrics. Lastly, there are also advertising cookies or targeting cookies, which are used to deliver customized advertising to the user. 

The Cookies used on my website 

The PECD, requires asking for consent when any cookie that is not strictly necessary for the operation of the website (Functional cookies, Analysis and performance cookies and Advertising cookies or targeting cookies). 

Further, the GDPR also requires a legal basis for the use of personal data where cookies are used to process personal data, which would then be your consent as well as my legitimate. However, since the consent obtained must also be recorded, we have installed the necessary Cookie Notification Banner and you will be asked about the use of Cookies upon your first visit of my website.

Below you can find the cookies we use listed in accordance with their Name, Description, Lifespan, and Type. Please keep in mind that this list may be updated from time to time.
