In this policy, the term "cookies" refers to cookies and other similar technologies covered by the EU Directive on privacy in electronic communications.

What is a "cookie"?

Cookies are small text files created by the website visited that contain data. They are stored on the visitor's computer to provide the user with access to various functions. Both session and non-session cookies are used on our websites. A session cookie is temporarily stored in the computer's memory while the visitor is browsing the website. This cookie is erased when the user closes their web browser or after a certain time has passed (meaning that the session expires). The non-session cookie remains on the visitor's computer until it is deleted.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to learn more about user interaction with our content to help us improve our website user experience.

Website functionality and content

Visitors use the share function to recommend our websites and content on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Cookies store information on how visitors use the share function – although not at an individual level – so that the website can be improved. If you do not accept cookies, no information is stored. We use third-party resources for some of the functions within our website, for example, when you visit a page with videos embedded from or links to YouTube. These videos or links (and any other third-party content) may contain third-party cookies, and you may wish to consult the policies of these third-party websites for information regarding their use of cookies.

Web analytics

This website uses Google Analytics and Facebook pixel that uses cookies. At the aggregate level, cookies store information on how visitors use the website, including the number of pages displayed, where the visitor comes from, and the number of visits, to improve the website and ensure a good user experience. If you do not accept cookies, no information is stored. New links should be added to the privacy policy for all networks.

How to reject or delete cookies?

We will not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about a visitor. However, you can choose to reject or block the cookies set by Pioneers or any third-party websites by changing your browser settings – see the Help section within your browser for further details. Please note that most browsers automatically accept cookies, so if you do not wish cookies to be used, you may need to delete or block the cookies actively.

For information on the use of cookies in mobile phone browsers and details on how to reject or delete such cookies, please refer to your mobile phone manual. Note that if you reject to use cookies, you will still be able to visit our websites, but some of the features might not function properly.
