GAIA Website Cookie Policy

Cookie Policy

Cookies are small text files utilized by the websites that you visit send and record on your device, in order for them to be then transmitted back to the same site at your following visit to the same website. Cookies help to remember things like website preferences, among other. In certain cases, operations may not be performed without the use of cookies, which may be necessary for the correct operation and rendering of a website. Cookies are therefore used for purposes of computer authentication, monitoring of browsing sessions and storing information about the activities of users accessing a website. Cookies can contain a unique identification code that allows websites to keep track of the user’s browsing within a specific website, for statistical purposes or for advertising purposes.

Pursuant to art. 5(3) of Directive 2002/58/EC, the prior informed consent of the user is required for storage on a user’s terminal equipment, or for access to information stored on a user’s terminal equipment. However, some cookies are exempt from this requirement and may be deployed by the website without your prior consent. This applies to cookies that are used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication, and strictly necessary in order for the provider of an information society service explicitly required by the user to provide that service. In particular, “technical cookies”, do not require such consent. Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary in order to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. They are, thus, necessary for the correct operation of the website and are required in order to perform the services requested by the user. According to the Article 29 Working Party’s Opinion 04/2012 on Cookie Consent Exemption, first party analytics cookies do not require your consent when they are strictly limited to first party aggregated statistical purposes and  when  they  are  used  by  websites  that  already  provide  clear  information  about  these cookies  in  their  privacy  policy  as  well  as  adequate  privacy  safeguards.

The website uses the cookies Stats. They are used for first-party aggregated statistical purposes only. It does not collect user identity information or any personal information. The information collected is processed in aggregate and anonymous form. For more information about this cookie, go to
