Effective date: 30 June 2021

1. Our use of cookies

Welcome to testingtime.com (the “Website“). 

Our Website may use cookies to distinguish you from other users. This helps us to provide you with a good browsing experience and allows us to improve our Website. On this page (the “Cookie Policy“) you will find information on what cookies may be set when you visit our Website and the purposes for which we use those cookies. 

The Website is owned and operated by TestingTime AG (‘we’, ‘our’, ‘us’ as applicable). For further detailed information, please see our Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy.

2. What are cookies?

Apart from a delicious treat often including chocolate chips, a cookie is a small data file that is placed on your browser or your hardware to allow a website to recognize you when you return to it. This can either be for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie‘) or for repeat visits (a ‘persistent cookie‘). Cookies can be created through a variety of web-related protocols and technologies, such as HTTP (sometimes referred to as ‘browser cookies’), HTML5, or Adobe Flash.

Cookies are an extremely common technology for remembering certain information about a website visitor. Most websites currently make use of cookies for a wide range of tasks. Cookies may be set by the website in question (‘first-party cookie‘) or third-party suppliers and partners who set or read cookies on the website (‘third-party cookie‘).

We use cookies for the following purposes:

  1. Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website.
  2. Functional cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our Website and to embed functionality from third party services. This enables us to personalise our content for you, remember your preferences (for example, to pre-populate form content you’ve already entered previously) and to integrate useful services provided by third party providers into our Website e.g. landing pages and relevant pop-ups.
  3. Performance and analytics cookies. We use these cookies to collect information that allows us to analyse web traffic to our Website, such as count the number of visitors and see how they move around our Website. The information collected via those cookies is anonymous. We send it to a third party that operates tools to analyse the collected information. This helps us to improve the way our Website works, for example by making it easier for you to find what you are looking for.
  4. Embedded third-party content. Some of the content on our Website (e.g. forms, buttons and pop-ups) is provided by online services operated by third parties. When you visit a page containing content from one of these services, a cookie may be set by the relevant third party. A list of the third-party cookies currently used in connection with this Website can be found in the cookie table.

5. LinkedIn Insight Tag

We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag to gage the effectiveness of our advertising activities and to show you advertising that is relevant to you based on your interest.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag is used to track conversions, retarget website visitors, and unlock additional insights about LinkedIn members interacting with our ads on LinkedIn. Here you will find additional information on the LinkedIn Insight Tag https://www.linkedin.com/help/lms/answer/65521/the-linkedin-insight-tag-faqs and here you will find how to manage LinkedIn cookies https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out?trk=microsites-frontend_legal_cookie-policy.

6. Email tracking

Some of the emails we send to you may contain a ‘web beacon pixel’ (clear GIFs) or tracked links which allows us to identify when you have opened the email and to verify which links contained in the email you have accessed. We use this information to determine which parts of our emails are of most interest to you.

You can delete the pixel by deleting the email. If you do not wish to download the pixel to your computer or other device, you can ensure this by selecting to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML, or not opening pictures in your email.

Alternatively, you can unsubscribe from our mailing list by clicking on ‘Unsubscribe’ in the relevant communication or by contacting us at contact@testingtime.com
