At MS Office Store, we want to make our services reliable and simple to use. As our store provides online services, sometimes we have to place small amounts of information on your device. Usually, this will be on your computer or smartphone and it is called a cookie. Cookies are stored on your web browser.
Cookies are used to ensure you get the best service. Here is how cookies help improve online services:
With cookies, a service will recognise your device. This means you won’t have to repeat information lots of times when completing a task. Your username and password will be recognised so you won’t have to enter them every time a web page requests them. Cookies measure how many people are using the service so it can respond faster. To make sure you are seeing relevant content and adverts, cookies recognise when users are visiting websites through social media.
It is important to note that cookies are not used to collect personal information about you.
You can learn more about cookies, find out how to remove them, and manage the information by visiting the About cookies website. If you decide to restrict cookies then please be aware that it may impact the functionality of the website.
Use of Google Analytics
MS Office Store uses Google Analytics. This is a service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses the cookies on your device, to help our website analyse how users use our site. When information is gathered it will be stored on Google servers in the US. This does include your IP address. The information is then used to evaluate how you used the website, to compile reports on your website activity for operators, and to provide other services while using the internet.
This information may be provided to third parties if the law requires them to do so or if third parties are processing the information on Google’s behalf. However, Google will not link your IP address to any other data held by them.
If you require any further details about Google Analytics then visit the Google Code website.
The Use of Social media and Google remarketing
Technology such as cookies and conversion pixels are used to customise content and advertisements. This ensures that social media content is relevant and it analyses traffic. This technology is provided by vendors such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google. Information about your use of the site will be shared with our partners in social media, analytics, and advertising.
Cookies and conversion pixels allow us to grow our audience from our website for advertising campaigns. These campaigns are served by social media networks and the Google Content Network. As a result, when you visit our site an advertisement may appear on your social media or Google result page that is relevant to you.
