This Cookie Policy applies to any website or service (collectively “Site”) of Healing Supply and its affiliates that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference. The terms “Healing Supply”, “we”, “us” or “us” as used in this Cookie Policy collectively refer to Healing Supply, and its affiliates.

2. What is a cookie?

Healing Supply uses cookies and other technologies to enable features at the Site, in e-mails or e-mail advertisements, or in advertisements on other Site. A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. Cookies, among other things, speed navigation through our Site, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our Site, help us provide you with customized content and allow us to learn about your visit.

Some cookies require your consent, while others are exempt.

  • Cookies exempt from consent: Strictly necessary cookies guarantee functions without which you would not be able to use the Site as intended. They are stored on your computer during the current browser session. Strictly necessary cookies ensure that, when you call up the functionalities of a website, you are shown a version that has a broad-band-related data quantity corresponding to that of the Internet connection you are using. Such cookies also guarantee that, when you change pages, the function of changing from http to https takes place. Cookies of this type also store your decision regarding the use of cookies on our Site. Your consent is not required for strictly necessary cookies.
  • Cookies subject to consent: All other cookies that are not strictly necessary to use the Site still fulfil important tasks. Without these cookies, functions intended for your convenience on our Site, such as your personal settings or automatic filling in form functions could not be retained and would therefore have to be re-entered on every page.

Types of Cookies We Use. Healing Supply uses five types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, cookies for marketing purposes, and cookies for social media.

  • Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Site and use its features. These temporary cookies only last only as long as your web browser is open and are used for technical purposes such as enabling better navigation on our Site. Without these cookies, Site you have asked for cannot be provided – for example, remembering previous actions (e.g. entered text) when navigating back to a page in the same session. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears.
  • Performance cookies are stored on your computer for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to our Site and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. These cookies do not save information that would allow the user to be identified. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore made anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website, and with it the user experience.
  • Functional cookies enable the Site to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, languages choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalized functions. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.
  • Cookies for advertising purposes are used to display advertisements to users that are more targeted and adapted to their interests. They also are used to limit the frequency with which an advertisement appears and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They register whether a person has visited a website or not. This information may be shared with third-parties advertisers. Cookies for improving target group appeal and advertising are often linked with page functionalities of third-party providers.

First-Party Cookies:  Some of the cookies are used exclusively by Healing Supply, and therefore are called “first-party cookies.” The table below explains the first-party cookies we use and why.

Third-Party Cookies:  Healing Supply uses third-party service providers to help us manage, carry out and improve our advertising. These parties may set cookies to help us collect information and provide you with advertisements that we believe would be relevant for you. From time to time, these third parties also may assist us by providing certain statistical and analytics information in relation to our marketing practices. The table below explains the third-party cookies we use.

4. Web beacons

We use web beacons (also called web bugs, pixel tags, or clear GIFs) primarily to collect and maintain aggregated data (such as the number of visitors) to help us see which areas are most popular with our users and improve and update the content on our Site. Web beacons also help us measure the effectiveness of our online advertising and/or e-mail campaigns by, for example, counting the number of individuals who visit our Site or the number of individuals who open or act upon an e-mail message. Some of the information we collect using web beacons may be personally identifiable. We may combine this information with other Personal Data we have collected about you to better tailor our marketing or Site content to you and may use this information for other purposes, such as internal research.

5. Adobe technologies

As explained on our Privacy Policy, Healing Supply uses Adobe Flash and other technologies to collect and store information about your use of the Site. If you do not have Adobe Flash stored on your computer or devices, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. Healing Supply uses this information to ensure that the Site creates value added for users.

The deployment of Adobe involves capturing data by means of Adobe Analytics and Adobe Dynamic Tag Management, which are then anonymized, processed and stored in Adobe computing centers in Europe. If you wish to fully reject data capture by Adobe, you can do this by completing the opt-out process on the Adobe website. https://www.adobe.com/be_en/privacy/opt-out.html.
