Use of Cookies on Websites of Spherix Global Insights

What is a Cookie?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies from Spherix Global Insights society websites serve many purposes, such as allowing you to navigate page-to-page efficiently, saving your preferences, and generally improving your visit experience on our website.

EU Directive 2009/136 / EC requires that we store cookies that are indispensable for the operation of this website on your computer, but that we must obtain your permission for all other cookies that go beyond them.

Some Spherix Global Insights websites may also use cookies of this type. We do not do this to track individual users or personally identify them, but to gain useful insight into how our sites are being used so that we can continue to improve them for the benefit of our users. Without the knowledge of the systems that use these cookies, we could not maintain our service offering.

Cookies Used by Us

If you decide to change the language, font size or other display options of the website (eg contrast strength), we use special cookies for user interface settings. As a result, you will not need to redo your favorite preferences once you visit the site the next time.

If you use areas of the site where registration is required to access the content, we will store an “authentication cookie” on your computer. This will allow you to leave and return to the relevant website areas without having to re-enter your user details.

If Adobe Flash is installed on your computer (as is the case on most computers) and you are using a video player, we will store a “flash cookie” on your computer. This cookie stores data necessary to play video and audio content and store the user’s preferences.

Spherix Global Insights seeks to understand how visitors use our websites; For this we use web analysis services. These services count visitors and provide us with information about the overall behavior of visitors – for example, which search terms bring users to the site, how long they typically stay on the site, or how many subpages they visit on average. For this purpose, we store a “First-Party Analytics Cookie” on your computer.

It’s also possible that we use services like Google Analytics to collect web statistics. In this case, Google will store a “third-party cookie” on your computer. This is also the case if we use Google Maps.

All data collected through these cookies are stored and maintained by Spherix Global Insights in Switzerland.
