We use the following cookies:

They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
- Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
- Functionality cookies. These are used to recognize you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
- Targeting/advertising cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. These cookies allow implementing efficiency parameters in the advertisements offered in the websites, based on information about your behavior.

- THIRD PARTIES.
We may also allow certain business partners to place these technologies on the Nikki Beach Website and App. These partners use these technologies to (1) help us analyze how you use the Nikki Beach Website and App, such as by noting the third party services from which you arrived, (2) market and advertise Nikki Beach services to you on the Nikki Beach Website and App and third party websites, (3) help us detect or prevent fraud or conduct risk assessments, or (4) collect information about your activities on the Nikki Beach Website and App, other sites, and/or the ads you have clicked on. For example, to help us better understand how people use the Nikki Beach Website and App, we work with a number of analytics partners, including Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is a processor for our data and has confirmed its commitment to GDPR compliance (hyperlink to https://privacy.google.com/businesses/compliance/#?modal_active=none). There are several Cookies specifically used by Google Analytics as follows:
“utma” contains a random number and expires after 2 years
“utmb” contains a random number and expires after 30 minutes
“utmc” contains a random number and expires once you close your web browser
“utmz” contains a random number and expires after 6 months
The information gathered relating to the website is used to create reports. For more information, see https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/. If you do not wish to be tracked by Google Analytics on any website you may opt out by visiting the Google website and simply unsubscribing at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser by clicking here.)
Third parties may also use such tracking technologies to serve ads that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you and measure the effectiveness of their ads both on the Nikki Beach Website and App and on other websites and online services. Targeting and advertising cookies we use may include Google, and other advertising networks and services we use from time to time. For more information about targeting and advertising cookies and how you can opt out, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out page, the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out page, or http://youronlinechoices.eu. To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page. To the extent advertising technology is integrated into the Nikki Beach Website and App and you opt-out of tailored advertising, you may still receive advertising content. In that case, the advertising content will just not be tailored to your interests. Also, we do not control any of these opt-out links and are not responsible for the availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.
