Read: Zenoti Cookie Notice — Webstore

To place cookies on a visitor's system, you must first legally document and manage a visitor's consent preferences before collecting, sharing, or selling user data from online sources such as websites and apps. For this purpose, you can use any consent management platform (CMP) to install a cookie consent bar to Webstore.

After you install a cookie consent bar on Webstore, the CMP provides detailed information regarding the tracking of a visitor's online behavior. The cookie consent bar presents your visitors with detailed information about the Webstore’s Cookie Notice.

On the cookie consent bar, visitors have to grant, refuse, or revoke consent to having their online behavior collected, used, or sold by all or specific parties listed in the cookie consent policy.

Visitors can activate and deactivate cookies that deal with performance and analytics. This way, they can give consent to cookies based on their comfort level as cookies process their personal data.

Why is cookie consent important

Cookie consent is a required legal basis under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation, EU) and CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act, US) for websites to be able to collect, process, or share the personal data (including names, addresses, ID numbers, information about appearance, health, genetics, location data, and online identifiers such as cookies, IP addresses, search and browser history) of individuals inside their region.

Even though cookies themselves might not constitute personal data, they are considered personal data if they can provide personal advertisement by:

  • Identifying connecting devices

  • Creating personal profile by inference or by combining with other data, or

  • Extrapolating personal data by reverse engineering

Types of cookies used by Webstore

When a visitor visits Webstore, it stores the following types of cookies on your computer.

  • Necessary cookies

    These cookies are necessary to run Webstore, to keep it secure, and to comply with regulations. Webstore will not work in its intended way without them.

    • Local storage

      Local storage stores data with no expiration date, and unlike cookie expiry, gets cleared only through JavaScript, or clearing the browser cache/locally stored data. These items are necessary to run Webstore.

      Each local storage item is prefixed with the <Client_Id>, which is the name of the client that is mapped in Zenoti.

  • Analytics cookies

    These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website and services, including which the number of visitors, bounce rate, traffic source, pages visitors go to most often and if they receive error messages from certain pages.

  • Advertisement cookies

    These cookies help Zenoti decide which of our products, services, and offers may be relevant for the website visitors. Zenoti uses this data to deliver visitors with customized advertisements based on the pages they visited before and analyze the effectiveness of the ad campaign.

These cookies help Zenoti understand the preferences of a visitor better. To ensure that they consent to these cookies, you must first install the cookie consent banner to Webstore.
