What cookies do we use and why?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses.

Some E-mate websites have social media or other types of plugins to improve our customers online experience. Social media plugins allow users to engage with their social media pages. E-mate pages may include plugins to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat, YouTube, Vimeo, or Google Maps. When you visit our site, a direct connection between your browser and the social media company's server is established. This allows the social media company to process the users' engagement with their social media plug-in. To establish this connection, the social media company receives information that you have visited our site from your IP address. E-mate has a legitimate interest in creating an engaging user experience on its webpages. Thus, the basis for the data processing under the GDPR is Art. 6(1)(f). Information about each social media plugin can be found in the section of this provision.
