ReturnHow’s Cookies and Tracking Technologies Policy

This policy outlines how ReturnHow (“we,” “our,” or “us”) employs cookies and tracking technologies on our websites. These technologies enable website features, facilitate analysis of website usage, and enhance the services we offer through our websites. Below, you will find details about the types of cookies and tracking technologies we utilize, the information we gather using these technologies, how you can manage your preferences, and how to get in touch with us.

1. Cookies and Their Purpose

A cookie is a small text file that your web browser stores when you visit a website. Virtually all websites employ cookie technology. Cookies can store various types of information, including your IP address, details about the content you view, and preferences, such as information you provide to avoid repetitive entry on subsequent visits. Cookies enable us to offer tailored content, streamline navigation, understand your visits, and enhance your online experience.

We employ four types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, and cookies for marketing purposes.

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies: These essential cookies allow you to navigate our websites and utilize their features. Temporary in nature, they exist only while your web browser is open, serving technical purposes such as optimizing navigation. Without these cookies, requested services cannot be provided. Once you close your browser, the cookie vanishes.
  • Performance Cookies: These cookies remain on your computer for extended periods. They track metrics like the number of unique visitors, page views, user engagement time, and other relevant web statistics. The data collected is aggregated and anonymized. These cookies exclusively enhance website performance and user experience.
  • Functional Cookies: Functional cookies store previously entered information (e.g., user names, language preferences, location) to offer improved, personalized functions. They enable requested features, such as video playback. These cookies gather anonymous data and do not track your activity on other websites.
  • Website Analytics: We employ web analytics services like Google Analytics. These services use cookies to gather data such as your IP address, browser information, and viewed content. This information helps us analyze how visitors engage with our websites. Data generated by these cookies is transmitted to and stored by our service providers on servers in the United States. They assess user numbers, locations, frequently visited website sections, popular browsers, and user interests on our behalf. This data may be retained for up to two years.

If IP anonymization is activated, your IP address will be truncated within the EU or other parties to the EEA. In rare cases, the full IP address may be transferred to a Google server in the United States and then truncated. Your browser’s IP address, as relayed via Google Analytics, will not be linked with other Google-held data.

2. Managing and Disabling Cookies

You retain the ability to manage or disable cookies by adjusting your browser settings. Given variations in browser configurations, refer to your browser’s settings menu for guidance on altering cookie preferences. Note that opting out of cookies could impact website functionality, potentially limiting access to certain services.
