What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small files that websites transfer to your computer via your web browser – if you allow them. Cookies enable sites to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
( Cookies are also delicious delicacies, like the ones shown above. However this page is all about cookies as computer files, rather than the ones that taste nice and make you fat if you eat too many of them. )
We use Google Analytics to find out what our visitors look at on our website.
Google Analytics contains information about use of our website from anyone who uses your computer, not just you, and they’ve no idea who you are.
We do not tie any data from Google Analytics to anything else, nor do we keep any Google Analytics information offline.
You can also use your browser in “private” or “incognito” mode, to look like a brand new user every time you browse the web.
Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Tawk.to, and others
In common with pretty much every website today, we use social media cookies from sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Google+. We also use the tawk.to online chat system for realtime interaction, and Hotjar for visitor analytics and feedback.
Again, if you’re logged out of Twitter, Facebook or Google+, then they do not have any personal information about you. Since it’s not personal information, we aren’t specifically asking you for prior consent to use them.
When you’re logged into Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and similar services, they’ll know when you visit KEXINO – as well as every other website that also uses their services. You’re consenting to this when you log into Twitter, Facebook or Google, and those are the guys who have your personal details. We can’t see any of it.

Alternatively, as we’ve said, you can use your browser in “private” or “incognito” mode, to look like a new (anonymous) user every time you browse the web.
GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Act, legislation designed to regulate the handling and processing of personal data concerning any individual in the European Union.
Any organization, wherever in the world they may be, needs to adhere to the regulations of GDPR if they’re handling personal data that can be used to identify an EU individual – name or pseudonym, address, email address, IP address – whatever.
We work with organizations to help them better understand the ramifications of GDPR and ensure that internal systems and processes meet GDPR compliance obligations.
We do not internally hold such information for our own purposes. Furthermore we have signed Data Processing Agreements in place with appropriate partners in cases where GDPR legislation is applicable.
We take privacy pretty darn seriously
Privacy is hugely important to us. We also want to make sure that we know what you like – so we can do it more often.
We also think you’re a nice person, and hope you think the same of us.
