What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the site again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.
Cookies provide a convenience feature to save you time, or tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Ancoris) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits a certain other Website.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons.
Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Website. For example, we use HubSpot to manage our website and this platform keeps track of the Website and pages you visit, in order to determine what portion of the Website is the most popular or most used.
This data is used to deliver customized content and promotions within the Ancoris Website to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. We also use Google Analytics and Google Ads and serve cookies through our Website for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

Social networking cookies: These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our Website through third party social networking and other Websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes too.
We will retain your personal data as long as there is a lawful basis for doing so. After this period, your personal data will be destroyed. Any personal data held by us for marketing and notifications related to the provision of our services will be kept by us until such time that you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information.
