1. Role and responsibilities

Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA"), typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing personal data: the "Data Controller" (or under the CCPA, “business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the "Data Processor" (or under the CCPA, “service provider”), who processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller.

We act as Data Controller when processing your personal data via cookies. More information about how we process your personal data may be found in our Privacy Policy.

In this Cookies Policy, "personal data" and “data controller” have the meaning of the GDPR (and any national act and/or decree implementing it), as well as any other applicable data protection legislation (together, the “Applicable Law”).
