Last Updated: 07.01.2019

1. Introduction

Welcome to DeVink Estates Ltd. IP Address and Cookie Policy.

DeVink Estates Ltd. (“we”; “us”; or “our”) collects
two types of information about you resulting from your use of our website (the “Website” or
the “Site”): (i) personal information, including your name and e-mail
address and (ii) aggregate information which is generated from the practices
that we have in place regarding ‘cookies’ and the Internet Protocol Address (“IP
Address
”) pertaining to the users of the Website.

Our practices regarding the collection and processing of your personal information are set in our Privacy Notice. Correspondingly, the practices which we have in place regarding the generation of aggregate information are described here in our IP and Cookie Policy. In order to be able to access and use the Site, you must expressly agree and consent to the practices set out herein.

Please read the following carefully to understand how and why the Site
uses your IP Address and cookies. If you not accept or agree to the practices
described in this policy, you must exit the Site immediately.

2. IP Address

2.1 What happens when you visit
the Site

Every time you connect to the internet or, if you use an always-on
connection, such as broadband or ADSL, when you boot up or restart your
computer, you are automatically assigned a unique identifying number known as
an IP Address. This IP Address, which contains information regarding the
location of your computer on the internet (your country of origin) and the name
of your internet service provider (“ISP”), is automatically logged by
the Site.

2.2 What is an IP Address?

When you first started your internet session (i.e. your computer
connected to the internet), your computer was automatically assigned a unique
number (normally in the region of 9 or 10 decimal numbers), known as an IP Address. This is your computer’s
unique address on the internet. Without an IP Address, websites would not be
able to deliver their content to you given that they would not be able find
your computer on the internet. Since each time you disconnect and reconnect to
the internet a new IP Address is automatically assigned to your computer, IP
Addresses are not inherently capable of identifying you as an individual (at
least, by themselves and not combined with other identifiers). An IP Address
does, however, contain information regarding the location of your computer on
the internet (your country), and the name of your ISP.

2.3 How do we collect your IP Address?

Each time you visit a page on the Site, your computer sends out a
message to the Site asking for the content to be delivered. This message sent
by your computer also encloses your IP Address as a form of “return address”,
so that the Site may find your computer in order to send it the requested
content. Our web-server automatically logs all these messages.

2.4 What do we do with your IP Address?

When
we log your IP Address, the data collected is grouped up with the other logged
IP Addresses in order to provide us with the statistics on the geographic
location of visitors to the Site, how long they stay on the Site, which are the
most viewed pages and for other statistical reasons.

We
gather your IP address automatically and store it in log files. These files
also contain information relating to your browser type, ISP, operating system,
date/time stamp, clickstream data and the files viewed on the Site. Collecting
this type of information allows us to generate aggregate information for the
purposes of the Site, including in terms of overall user trends and activities
online (such as the number of unique visitors, pages access most frequently or
the search terms entered). Furthermore, it also allows us to administer the
Site, diagnose any potential server problems, analyse visitor trends and
statistics, and generally helps us to provide you with a better internet
experience.

IP Addresses are not stored for longer than necessary for the above
stated purposes
.

A
cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or
the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that
is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. A cookie enables the website to
remember users that have already visited. Without a cookie, every time you open
a new web page, the server where that page is stored will treat you like a
completely new visitor. Cookies allow us to remember your custom preferences
such as your language preference and allow you to complete tasks without having
to re-enter your information when browsing.

We use
the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the
    operation of the Site. Namely, by way of illustration, they include cookies
    that enable you to log into secure areas of the Site and make use of its

  • Analytical and Performance cookies. They allow us to
    recognise and count the number of visitors and see how visitors move around the

  • Session cookies. These cookies contain encrypted information to allow our system to
    uniquely identify you while you are logged in. Session cookies exist only
    during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your
    browser software. These allow us to process your requests and help us make sure
    you are who you say you are after you have logged in.
