Cookies

We do not use cookies to extract information from you, solely to simplify your visits, mainly by having cookies remember which language and specific part of the site you want to start your visit with, or to remember last login date so that we can distinguish new users from returning ones. A temporary cookie is also used to keep track of your "session". Without that temporary cookie (which is not stored after you quit your browser) you would have had to log on again on each page. You can turn off cookies in your web browser (more information about this is available at http://www.aboutcookies.org/).

When you follow links from Vitaa to other web sites, these may install tracking cookies on your computer. This is beyond the control of Vitaa.

The customer's e-mail address is used to send an e-mail verification message, Vitaa newsletters (this can be opted out from), password reminders upon request, inactivity reminders, information about changes in the terms of use and very seldomly information about new features to users with deleted accounts. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. This information is shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis.
