Third-party cookies

We use or allow third-party cookies (Google Analytics and MailChimp) to help us monitor our web traffic and see which products have been viewed in which frequency. As with our cookies, these third-party cookies do not collect any personal information.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies.”. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.

Furthermore, you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

We use MailChimp to manage our contact lists. MailChimp and its partners may use various technologies to collect and store information when you interact with a bucketlistbookshop.com email campaign or connected store, and this may include using cookies and similar tracking technologies, such as pixels and web beacons. For example, MailChimp uses web beacons in the emails they send on our behalf. When you receive and engage with a campaign from us, web beacons track certain behavior such as whether the email sent through the MailChimp platform was delivered and opened and whether links within the email were clicked. They also allow MailChimp to collect information such as your IP address, browser, email client type and other similar details. MailChimp uses this information to measure the performance of our email campaigns, and to provide analytics information and enhance the effectiveness of their services. MailChimp’s use of cookies and other tracking technologies is discussed in more detail in their Cookie Statement.
