We can place cookies and other similar technology on your device, including mobile device.

What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a site and allow a site to recognize your device. Cookies managed by the RPKC only are called “first party cookies” whereas cookies from third parties are called “third party cookies” as explained below.
Cookies do a lot of different jobs, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. In addition, cookies can help us to analyze the use of our websites and online content (analytics cookies) and they can also facilitate/track the interaction on our websites and online content with social media (e.g. links to social media sites, like buttons, etc.).
Yes, we may use information collected from our cookies to identify user behavior and to serve content and offers based on your profile, and for the other purposes described below, to the extent legally permissible in certain jurisdictions.
In other cases, we can associate cookie information (including information from cookies placed via our advertisements on third party sites) with an identifiable individual. For example: If we send you a targeted e-mail which includes web beacons, cookies or similar technologies we will know whether you open, read, or delete the message.
When you click a link in a marketing e-mail you receive from the RPKC, we will also use a cookie to log what pages you view and what content you download from our websites, even if you are not registered at or signed into our site.
Do you use any cookies from third party companies?
Some cookies, web beacons and other tracking and storage technologies that we use are from third party companies (third party cookies), such as Facebook, Google Analytics, Microsoft, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and Linkedin Analytics to provide us with web analytics and intelligence about our sites which may also be used to provide measurement services and target ads. These companies use programming code to collect information about your interaction with our sites, such as the pages you visit, the links you click on and how long you are on our sites. This code is only active while you are on the RPKC website. For more information on how these companies collect and use information on our behalf, please refer to their privacy policies.
Does the RPKC use any tracking technologies similar to cookies?
We may also use web beacons (including conversion pixels) or other technologies for similar purposes as above and we may include these on our sites, in marketing e-mail messages or our newsletter, affiliated websites, to determine whether messages have been opened and links clicked on. Web beacons do not place information on your device, but they may work in conjunction with cookies to monitor website activity. The information provided below about cookies also applies to web beacons and similar technologies. Conversion pixels are small codes located on a particular web page which are triggered when someone visits a page resulting in an increase in the conversion count.
What if I don’t want cookies or similar tracking technologies?
If you want to remove existing cookies from your device, you can do this using your browser options.
Please bear in mind that deleting and blocking cookies may have an impact on your user experience.
