What are cookies?
Cookies are small (and harmless) text files that are saved on your computer or phone. They contain the settings data of your browsing to make it easier for you to navigate the website.
There are two types of cookies: session or real-time text cookies that are deleted once you close your browser, and temporary/permanent cookies that are stored on your computer for a longer period of time, and sometimes permanently.
Cookies help you choose the information that matches your choices or that you would like to see on the website, including but not limited to country, language, and cart items.
We do not store sensitive personal information such as address, password, and credit card information in the cookies we use.
What type of cookies does Arkaki use?
We mostly use real-time text cookies to enable us to save the items of your shopping cart while you navigate through the website. They are deleted as soon as you close your internet browser. We also use some files stored on your computer or phone after closing the browser to help our system identify you when you revisit the website, showing you your data, preferences, and the products you chose.
Temporary cookies have a lifetime of one month to two years and are automatically deleted. These cookies are used to collect and analyze data in order to come up with strategies to improve customer experience and develop our website. By applying these strategies, the website becomes easier to use and we can display suggested products to users that they personally would like to see.
Our goal is to provide you with a convenient, enjoyable, and easy online shopping experience that is tailored to your taste.
What type of data is collected in cookies?
We believe in the importance of customer privacy, especially when it comes to gifting, which is why we do not store sensitive personal information (such as address, password, and credit card information) in the cookies we use. This prevents violation of privacy and protects the user from being tracked individually.
When cookies are activated, an ID number is generated for them and used as an internal reference only. It cannot be used to identify the user or know his registered personal info such as name and IP address. We receive anonymous information from cookies and use it for analysis and evaluation purposes. We learn for instance, which pages are most visited, which products are most popular, and so on.
What do we mean by user targeting on our website?
Arkaki collects private information that is used to provide advertisements and online offers that suit each customer’s taste in particular. This information is not used to identify you as a user, it is only used to study how we can improve the website.
The information we obtain from the user’s personal or order data is not stored. We only use it to display advertisements that users would like to see and inform them about our offers and services that suit their individual tastes.
The users are targeted by tracking their clicks on advertisements or the pages they visit. For example, we show an ad for a discounted gift set on a user’s page in particular, if that user is interested in viewing the assortment of sets.
We strive to deliver a personalized shopping and gifting experience to your taste that meets your purchasing priorities.
Does Arkaki use third-party cookies?
The sole purpose of using third-party cookies is to allow our partners to advertise products of interest to you personally.
Targeting the Customer through Our Partners
We use a targeting policy that allows us to display the advertisements you would like to see on our website. By targeting, we can advertise the products you’ve recently viewed on our partners’ websites. This means that the ads shown specifically to you, even on other companies’ websites, are only the offers and ads you want to see.
We perform a detailed analysis of the information collected in your cookies on our website to learn about your interests as a user. This information is anonymous and does not contain your personal info or any data about you in customer records.
I agree to authorize my user data to be used and stored in cookies. I allow these cookies to remain on my device after I close the browser and be used on my next visit to your website. I also reserve the right to withdraw this permission by disabling cookies in the browser settings menu.
How can I prevent cookies from being stored on my device?
Google may also transfer this information to a third party when required to do so by law, or if a third party processes the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
You can disable cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. If you do so, keep in mind that you won’t be able to take full advantage of the website’s features. By using this website, you consent to Google processing your data in the manner and for the purposes detailed above.
Every time you visit the website, information is sent from your browser to the website’s server log files, where it is saved. This information includes: the time and date of visiting the website, the pages you viewed, the IP address, the URL that led you to the website, the stored info, and the type of browser used.
When we collect this data, all IP addresses are deleted or converted to anonymous addresses. Anonymization means changing your IP address so that it cannot be associated with the original user (you), or can only be linked through extensive research.
The anonymous information stored on our server is used to improve your shopping experience on the website. It helps us make the website easier to navigate, find errors quickly, and direct the server’s capabilities to scale as needed. For example, we can calculate peak times of traffic and estimate the sufficient server capacity needed to keep our website running as fast and smooth as possible.
I hereby authorize Arkaki to analyze and use protocol data to develop and improve the performance of their online shopping website.
Security and Payment (SSL)
The payments you make through the website are carried out through our agent. You must only provide us or our agent with accurate and not misleading information, and inform us if any changes were made.
We use proper security technologies and procedures to prevent unauthorized or unlawful access and loss or destruction of your information. We collect data through the website and store your personal information on a database within a secure electronic server. And we use firewall systems on our servers.
When we electronically collect payment card details, we protect them with encryption, using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to make it difficult for hackers to decrypt your information.

We place direct physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards on the collection and disclosure of your information. Our secure procedures sometimes require that we ask you to verify your identity before we disclose your personal information to you. Subsequently, you are responsible for protecting your password and computer from any unauthorized access.
