Cookie Policy

At Valhalla, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies. This cookie policy applies to any Valhalla product or service that links to this policy.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables Valhalla features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to Valhalla and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on Valhalla and help us serve relevant communications and ads to you.

Does Valhalla use cookies?

Yes, we use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses Valhalla has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services (after opting in), you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

What types of cookies does Valhalla use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Valhalla or interact with our sites, platforms and pages. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Valhalla when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

What are cookies used for?

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Valhalla, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with Valhalla faster and more secure.

Authentication If you’re signed in to Valhalla, cookies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience.
Security We use cookies to enable and support our security features, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our User Agreement.
Preferences,features and services Cookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. They can help you fill out forms on Valhalla more easily. They also provide you with features, insights, and customised content in conjunction with our plugins. You can learn more about plugins in our Privacy Policy.
Advertising We may use cookies to show you relevant advertising both on and off the Valhalla site. We may also use a cookie to learn whether someone who saw a post or an ad, later visited and took an action (e.g. clicked or downloaded a document) on the advertiser’s site. We may also work with a partner site to show you an ad such as after you’ve visited their site or application.
Performance, Analytics and Research Cookies help us learn how well our site and plugins perform in different locations. We also use cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including when you access Valhalla from other websites, applications, or devices such as your work computer or mobile device.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant communications and ads to you more effectively. They also help us understand and improve our service and know when content has been shown to you. Communications and ads served by Valhalla may also set third party cookies.

If you are logged in on Valhallapcs.com, another Service that references this Cookie Policy or browsing a third-party partner site of Valhalla and one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage (such as your browsing behaviour) and log data (such as your IP address) will be associated by us with your account as noted in our Privacy Policy. We also use aggregate data from third parties and data from your profile and Valhalla activity.

If you are a Valhalla member but logged out of your account on a browser, Valhalla may continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days to generate usage analytics for our services. These analytics may be shared in aggregate form with our partners.

Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:

• detect and defend against fraud and other risks to protect users and partners
• improve our products
• provide more relevant communication
• provide aggregate reports of communications and ads activity to websites hosting the communications and ads

We do not divulge any personal information that we collect unless you have given us permission to do so. You can opt-out of receiving communication about additional Services and Products or informative content by contacting us to opt out

Controlling cookies

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, please be aware that some parts of the website may not function properly. It may also stop you from saving customised settings like login information.

What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?

When you land on a site for the first time, cookies have to be blocked until the user takes some action that they are clear will result in cookies being set. This means giving an opportunity to act before cookies are set on a first visit to a site. If there is then a fair notice, continuing to browse can in most circumstances be valid consent via affirmative action.

If you wish to change to opt out of using cookies after the initial opt-in, send an email to enquiries@valhallapcs.com requesting to do so. If you do not want to receive cookies, you can also change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including Valhalla cookies. Please note that the Valhalla site will not work properly without cookies.
