The Patkoz website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.
Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. We will automatically collect cookies and other non-personally identifying information when you visit the Site and, therefore, do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Patkoz pages, or register with Patkoz site or services, a cookie helps Patkoz to recall your special information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Patkoz website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Patkoz features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Patkoz services or web sites you visit.
5. Security of your Personal & Sensitive Data
Patkoz secures your data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Patkoz secures the Personal Data you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal and sensitive data (such as a credit card number) is transmitted it is protected through the use of encryption.
