Lifeplus is committed to protecting your personal information and data while you visit any of our websites to ensure that you can fully enjoy your visit. However, in order to operate our websites we collect personal data as well as use cookies to give you the best possible browsing experience. The personal information and data we collect will vary depending on what you use our websites for, but may include your name and email address, and your IP address. The collection of this information and data will either be temporary or permanent (until deleted) depending on what it is used for; likewise, our lawful basis for collecting and retaining this data may vary, but will either be contractual (for example, where you have an online Lifeplus account), consent (for example, if you have subscribed to one of the Lifeplus or Lifeplus formula newsletters) or because of a legitimate interest (for example, to improve our service).

In case you should be unhappy that any of our websites are  storing cookies on your electronic devices, you have the opportunity to either block some or all of the cookies or even delete the cookies from your device which have already been set.  Further information on how to do this is provided below.

I. But, what is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small file, typically of letters and numbers, which a website transmits to the cookie file on the hard drive of the electronic device of the user when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognise a user’s device and therefore to remember who you are. However, cookies cannot read any personal information on your electronic device; they simply unlock the electronic device memory and allow a website to recognise you when you revisit a website.   

There are two different durability types of cookies; so-called “Session” or “Persistent” cookies which enable your device to either remember information for the duration of your visit on the website (session cookies) or for repeat visits (persistent cookies). Session cookies get deleted from your device once you leave the website. Persistent cookies remain in a subfolder on your browser; a further visit on the website which originally placed the cookies on your electronic device will activate the cookie(s) again. Persistent cookies remain on your electronic device for a specific time. The exact duration of these cookies is variable, and may be viewed in the cookie’s file stored in a subfolder of your browser. Lifeplus does not store any cookie for longer than is necessary.

Cookies are also distinguished into three different necessity levels. Firstly, so-called “Strictly Necessary Cookies”, which are strictly necessary to enable you to move about the site or to provide certain features you have requested. This type of cookie cannot be disabled. Secondly, there are so-called “Functionality Cookies” used, which are cookies that enhance the functionality of a website by storing your preferences. For example, these cookies allow us to remember your language preferences or your user name on a Lifeplus website. Thirdly, there are so-called “Performance Cookies”, which help to improve the performance of a website, providing a better user experience. These cookies do not collect information which could identify you. All information these cookies gather is anonymous and is only used to improve how our websites work.

Furthermore, cookies are also differentiated into ‘First Party Cookies’ and ‘Third Party Cookies’. Whether a cookie is a first party or a third party cookie refers to the website or domain which places the cookie. First party cookies are placed by the website the user actually visits and third party cookies are cookies which are set by a domain other than the one visited by the user, hence the name third party cookies.
