IP Address and Cookie Policy

Last Updated: 30th October 2018

1. Introduction

Welcome to Timberland Invest Limited’s IP Address and Cookie Policy (the “Policy”). 

We, Timberland Invest Limited (C 60291) of 171 Old Bakery Street Valletta, VLT 1455 (“we”; “us”; “our”) collect aggregate information about the users of our website https://www.timberland-malta.com/ (the “Site”) through the use of ‘cookies’ and Internet Protocol Addresses (“IP Addresses”) and our related practices.

The practices that we apply for the generation of such aggregate information are described in this Policy. 

Please read the following carefully to understand how and why the Site uses your IP Address and cookies. If you do not accept or agree to the practices described in this Policy, you must exit the Site immediately. Continued use will be deemed to amount to your full acceptance and consent.

2. IP Address

2.1 What happens when you visit the Site

Every time you connect to the internet or, if you use an always-on connection, such as broadband or ADSL, when you boot up or restart your computer, you are automatically assigned a unique identifying number known as an IP Address. This IP Address, which contains information regarding the location of your computer on the internet (your country of origin) and the name of your internet service provider (“ISP”), is automatically logged by the Site.

2.2 What is an IP Address?

When you first started your internet session (i.e. your computer connected to the internet), your computer was automatically assigned a unique number (normally in the region of 9 or 10 decimal numbers), known as an IP Address. This is your computer’s unique address on the internet. Without an IP Address, websites would not be able to deliver their content to you given that they would not be able find your computer on the internet. Since each time you disconnect and reconnect to the internet a new IP Address is automatically assigned to your computer, IP Addresses are not inherently capable of identifying you as an individual (at least, by themselves and not combined with other identifiers). An IP Address does, however, contain information regarding the location of your computer on the internet (your country) and the name of your ISP, and which when combined with other available information may lead to your identification. For these reasons, EU data protection law treats IP Addresses as personal data with the resulting protections.

2.3 How do we collect your IP Address

Each time you visit a page on the Site, your computer sends out a message asking for the requested content to be delivered. This message sent by your computer also encloses your IP Address as a form of “return address”, so that the Site may find your computer in order to send it that requested content. Our web-server automatically logs all these messages.

2.4 What do we do with your IP Address?

When we log your IP Address, the data collected is grouped up with the other logged IP Addresses in order to provide us with the statistics on the geographic location of visitors to the Site, how long they stay on the Site, which are the most viewed pages and for other statistical reasons that may be relevant to us.

We gather your IP address automatically and store it in log files. These files also contain information relating to your browser type, ISP, operating system, date/time stamp, clickstream data and the files viewed on Site. Collecting this type of information allows us to generate aggregate information for the purposes of developing the Site, including in terms of overall user trends and activities online (such as the number of unique visitors, pages accessed and viewed most frequently or the search terms entered). It also allows us to administer the Site, diagnose any potential server problems, analyse visitor trends and statistics, and generally helps us to provide you with a better internet experience.

IP Addresses are not stored for longer than necessary for the above stated purposes.
