We use cookies for having statistics & analytics, an attractive design on our Site, and to allow the use of certain functionalities. The purpose of this Cookie Policy is to inform you, hereinafter “user” or “you”, about how we collect, store and use cookies on the Site.

By choosing to use our Site, you agree that we may use cookies as described in this Cookie Policy. You can at any time stop cookies to be collected; more details are provided below in the dedicated section of this policy.

This Cookie Policy comes in addition to our Privacy Policy that can be read on our Site here . Your continued use of our Site signifies your acceptance of this policy.

Thirteen Months offers this Site, including all information, tools and services available from this Site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies and notices stated within the Site. You can read our Terms of Service which governs your use of the Site here. The capitalized terms used within this page have the same meanings as those mentioned in the Terms of Service page, unless otherwise mentioned in this Cookie Policy.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small amount of information that’s downloaded to your computer or device when you visit certain websites. Our Site uses cookies dropped by us or third parties for a variety of purposes. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before.

Cookies make your browsing experience better by allowing the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login and region selection). This means you don’t have to re-enter this information each time you return to the website or browse from one page to another. Cookies also provide information on how people use the website, for instance whether it’s their first time visiting or if they are a frequent visitor.

The use of cookies does not involve personal data request and, in most cases, does not identify the users personally.

What cookies do we use and why?

Some cookies are necessary to allow you to browse our Site, use its features, and access secure areas. The use of these cookies is essential for the site to work. For example, we use user-input cookies for the duration of a session to keep track of a user’s input when filling in forms that span several pages.

Cookies usually used on most websites are classified as follows:

Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are essential to move around the website and use its features, such as page navigation and accessing secure areas. The website cannot work properly without these cookies.

Performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how a user is using a website – for example, the visited pages and the displayed errors. These cookies do not gather information that identifies a user. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how the website works.

Preference cookies: These cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, like user’s username, preferred language or the region that he/she is in. These cookies can also be used to remember changes a user made to text size, font and other parts of pages that they can customize. They may also be used to provide services such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track user’s browsing activity on other websites.

Tailored content cookies: These cookies help a website provide enhanced features and display content in a way that is relevant to a user. These cookies help a website determine what information to show a user based on how he/she has used the website previously. These cookies do not track user’s browsing activity on other websites.

Analysis or statistics cookies: These cookies are used to collect and report aggregate anonymous information about the number of visitors and how they use the website. These cookies only gather information for statistical purposes and only use pseudonymous cookie identifiers that do not directly identify you.

Targeting or marketing cookies: These cookies are used to track visitors across websites to deliver adds that are more relevant and engaging to the user. They are also used to limit the number of times a user sees an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. These cookies remember that a user has visited a website and this information may be shared with other organizations such as publishers and third-party advertisers. This means that after a user has been to the Site, they may see some advertisements about our Site elsewhere on the Internet. Although these cookies can track your device’s visits to our Site and other websites, they typically cannot personally identify you.

Social and Content cookies: These cookies are placed by many social media plugins (for example the Facebook ’like’ button), and other tools meant to provide or improve the content on a website (for example services that allow the playing of video files, or that create comments sections). We integrate these modules into our platform to improve the experience of browsing and interacting with our Site. Please note that some of these third-party services place cookies that are also used for things like behavioural advertising, analytics, and/or market research.

Most of the cookies are temporary and erased from the hard disk after your browsing session ends (called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device’s hard drive after you close your browser and allow us to identify the device in case of a further visit on our Site (called persistent cookies). Persistent cookies allow us to make our Site more friendly, efficient and safe. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device. You can choose to remove a persistent cookie any time by following your web browser’s directions about how to erase or delete cookies; more details are provided below in the dedicated section of this policy.

How long will cookies remain on my computer or mobile device?

The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device. See the section below on how to control cookies for more information on removing them before they expire.

What are first and third-party cookies?

First party cookies are cookies that belong to us, while third party cookies are cookies that another party places on your browsing device through our Site. This Cookie Policy does not contain aspects about third-party cookies and for more information about them please consult Third-party’s Privacy and Cookie Policies.

  • First party analytics cookies - We use these cookies to estimate the number of unique visitors, to improve our Site and our merchants’ websites, and to detect the most searched for words in search engines that lead to a webpage. These cookies are not used to target you with online marketing. We use these cookies to learn how our Site and our merchants’ websites are performing and make relevant improvements to improve your browsing experience.
  • Third party analytics cookies - We also use Google Analytics and other third-party analytics providers to help measure how users interact with our Site content. These cookies “remember” what our users have done on previous pages and how they’ve interacted with the Site. For more information on Google Analytics, visit Google’s information page. For instructions on how opt out of Google Analytics, see dedicated section below.

How to control cookies?

You can control and manage cookies in various ways. Please keep in mind that removing or blocking cookies can negatively impact your user experience and parts of our website may no longer be fully accessible.
