Welcome to the OKIANO Connect website operated by OKIANO Connect ("us," "we," or "our"). This Cookie Policy explains how we use cookies and similar technologies on our website to enhance your experience. By using the Service, you agree to the practices described in this Cookie Policy.

1. Definition of Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is sent by a website and stored on your web browser. It contains information and a timestamp. Your web browser saves this information on your computer and sends it back to the website each time you request pages or images from the site.

2. Types of Cookies

Cookies on this website serve to improve your user experience and optimize the site. There are two types of cookies:

a. Permanent Cookies: These files remain on your computer and are used to customize the website based on your preferences, choices, and interests, as well as for statistical purposes.

b. Session Cookies: Stored temporarily in your computer's memory while you visit a website, session cookies disappear when you close your web browser. Our website employs both session and permanent cookies. Regardless of the type used, no personal information such as email addresses or names is stored.

3. The Electronic Communication Act in brief

Under the Electronic Communication Act 2003, which entered into force on 25 July 2003, anyone who visits a website that uses cookies must be told whether the site contains cookies (almost all websites use some form of cookies and/or services such as web statistics systems, which in turn use cookies) and if so, the purpose of using cookies. The website must also provide information about how cookies can be avoided, and the user must also be given the opportunity to consent to the use of cookies, i.e. that they are stored on the user’s computer. Web browser settings can be altered to avoid cookies. There are no set provisions in the new act as to how consent should be obtained. On this website, we interpret the act to mean that the user consents to the use of cookies by using web browser settings and/or other tools for managing cookies.

4. Managing Cookies

If you choose not to accept cookies, you can disable them through your web browser settings. You can also configure your browser to warn you each time a website attempts to place a cookie on your computer. Previously stored cookies can be deleted from your browser as well. For guidance on identifying stored cookies, removing them, and adjusting your cookie preferences, consult your web browser's help pages.
