What are these cookies and other technologies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device via our website. The next time you visit our website, web beacons will allow us to recognize the cookie and your device. These web beacons will also read how you use our website. Pixel tags allow us to place relevant content for you on our website. Together, we call these technologies ‘cookies’.

What is the function of these cookies?
We use cookies to help us remember you when you visit the site again and to note which page, or pages, you view and any specific preferences that you might have selected along the way.

We use various cookies on this site. These range from long-term cookies (to remember you, or your preferences), to short-term, or session based cookies that “expire” when you close your browser window.

Besides the duration of cookie storage, there are four types of cookies that our website or third party create when you access the page or involve in the activities on our website.

  1. Strictly Necessary Cookie
    Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
  2. Performance / Functional Cookie
    Preference cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, like your preferred language or the region that you are in.
  3. Analytical cookie
    We may use the cookie made by Google Analytics to compile and store anonymous statistics about browsing patterns or site behaviour and build up a demographic profile. This data is collected along with other visitor data to form a collective analytics report. It’s important to note that this data is not personally identifiable and is only used for reporting/statistical purposes.
  4. Marketing Cookies
    We may use a number of social media tools, both third party and custom built, to enhance visitor interaction (such as “Share” ) on our site. If you already use these platforms their cookies may be set through our website and may be linked to your account with that provider. Data may then be used by them to customise certain adverts or functionality on their site(s) based on your usage of their service from this site.

The cookies that are placed on our website are partly placed by third parties, like Google, Vimeo and Facebook. Next to delivering services and techniques to Yakult, these parties will use the personal data they retrieve from their cookies for their own purposes. Please read the privacy statements of these third parties on information of their use of your personal data.
