This Cookie Notice explains how Sandviks Inc. (“Sandviks”, “we”, “us”, and “ours”) use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our websites at www.MineChest.com, www.EarlyMoments.com, www.Bluum.com and www.HookedOnPhonics.com (“Websites”) or use our mobile applications, collectively, referred to as the “Services”.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

We use both “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session ID cookies are used to store information while a user is logged into the Services and expire when the user closes his/her browser. Persistent cookie are used to make tasks like logging into the Services easier for returning users by remember a user’s login information. Persistent cookies stay on a user’s hard drive from one session to the next.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Sandviks) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites, collect information for record keeping purposes and to make it easier to navigate the Services. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described in the table below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Website you visit):

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to count visitors, to monitor how users navigate the Services, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

HTML5

We use HTML5 in some of our applications, including in our mobile website for the iPhone or iPad. HTML5 has browser web storage that does not rely on traditional browser cookies. HTML5 cookies are not stored in a browser “cookies” file and can be used to track users across websites. To our knowledge there is currently no known way for a user of a mobile device to remove HTML5 tracking and storage.

Embedded Scripts

An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Services such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device used to access Services from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Services, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

E-tags/cache browsers/web logs

Like most standard website servers, we log IP addresses (a unique number assigned to every computer on the internet) and device identification in order to improve security, analyze trends and administer the Services. We may track your movement within the Services, the pages from which you were referred, access times and browser types. This information may include the browser you are using, the internet address from which you linked to our Services, the operating system of your computer, the unique IP address of the computer of device identification from the mobile device that you used to access our Services and usage and browsing habits. We use this information in to gauge the effectiveness, usage, and popularity of our Services, track information for statistical purposes, help diagnose and troubleshoot server malfunctions, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information. We may also use individual information we collect through web logs to send you targeted offers and other communications.

Device Fingerprinting

We may use device fingerprinting in some of our Services, which allows us to collect information about a remote computing device for the purpose of identification. It can be used to prevent fraud or collect information about you.
