Cookie Policy

Hypersequent DMCC ("Company", "we", "us", "our") operates the website ("Website"). This Cookie Policy explains how we use cookies and similar technologies on our Website and application.

Learn more about who we are, how you can contact us, and how we process personal data when you use the Website in our Privacy Policy.

1. What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device when you visit a website. They are widely used to make websites work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

2. How We Use Cookies

On this Website, we use cookies; these are small text files stored on your browser or device by websites. They are used to remember your preferences, device and browser settings. While cookies may not always directly identify you, they enhance the personalised browsing experience on the Internet.

Depending on the period of expiry, cookies may be either persistent or session:

  • a persistent cookie is stored by a web browser and remains valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date);
  • a session cookie will expire at the end of the user session when the web browser is closed.

There are two types of cookies, depending on the provider:

  • first-party cookies: cookies that are placed on websites by hosts of domains;
  • third-party cookies: cookies that are placed on websites by domains other than the one the user is visiting.

Depending on the purpose, there are four main types of cookies, namely:

  • Necessary cookies: enable users to use websites by providing basic functions, e.g., ensuring security. Websites cannot function properly without these cookies;
  • Preferences (or functionality) cookies enable websites to remember your choices (such as language preferences, username, region).
  • Performance (or statistics) cookies: these cookies are used to collect information about how users interact with websites (e.g., page visits and page load speed). These cookies are sometimes placed by third-party providers of web traffic analysis services.
  • Targeting (or marketing) cookies: these cookies are used to track the visitor’s interest in a particular product, measure the number of unique visits, recognise returning users, and deliver a targeted advertisement to users.

Necessary cookies are always active. We collect necessary cookies based on our legitimate interest, namely for such purposes:

  • to preserve user session state across page requests;
  • to distinguish between humans and bots for forgery prevention and security purposes;
  • for other purposes necessary for the Website functionality.

Preferences cookies are off unless the user has explicitly requested the service, such as changing the language. In this case, they turn on automatically to ensure the user’s request.

Other cookies, namely the performance and targeting cookies, are used only based on your consent.
