Cookies and other information that we automatically collect

Like most platforms, AZ Factory logs IP addresses and uses cookies and similar technologies that allow us to recognise you and to customise your experience, and provide us with information about the way our visitors access our Platform. You can find out more about how we use cookies and related technologies below.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or mobile application. They are used to recognise your computer as you move between pages on a website, or when you return to a website or mobile application you have visited previously. Cookies are widely used in order to make platforms work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the platform.

We use cookies to enhance the online experience of our visitors (for example, by remembering your language and/or product preferences) and to better understand how our Platform is used. Cookies will tell us, for example, whether you have visited our Platform before or whether you are a new visitor. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

There are two broad categories of cookies:

  • First party cookies, served directly by AZ Factory to your computer or mobile device. They are used only by AZ Factory to recognise your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Platform.
  • Third party cookies, which are served by a third party service provider on our Platform, and can be used by the service provider to recognise your computer or mobile device when it visits other platforms. Third party cookies are most commonly used for platform analytics or advertising purposes.

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. AZ Factory uses both 'session cookies' and ‘permanent cookies’. Session cookies exist only while your browser is open and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Permanent cookies survive after your browser is closed, and can be used to recognise your computer or mobile device when you open your browser and browse the internet again.

About Advertising

The Platforms use third parties such as network advertisers and ad exchanges to serve you ads on third party platforms after you leave our Platforms, and we use third party analytics and other service providers to evaluate and provide us and/or third parties with information about the use of the Platforms and viewing of ads and of our content.

  • We and/or Global-e will disclose your personal information to third party providers for the purposes of providing online and other payment services, handling credit checks and fraud prevention, and any other services required to use your information for the purposes specified in the section entitled “Information you provide us and how we use it”; and
  • We and/or Global-e will disclose your personal information to any law enforcement agency, court, regulator, government authority or other third party where we and/or Global-e believe this is necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, or otherwise to protect our rights or the rights of any third party.

We will disclose your personal information to any third party that purchases, or to which we transfer, all or substantially all of our assets and business. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to ensure that the entity to which we transfer your personal information uses it in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Global-e will share your information with its subsidiaries or affiliated companies for the purposes of storing or processing this information to provide the Global-e Service.

Global-e may transfer your information to third party services providers outside of the EEA. In the absence of an EC adequate decision relating to the country or transfer, Global-e seek to rely on appropriate safeguards such as the valid privacy Self-Certification or enter into EC approved standard contractual clauses.

Protecting your information

We want you to feel confident about using our Platform, and we are committed to protecting the personal information we collect. We limit access to personal information about you to employees who reasonably need access to it, to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.

You should choose a password which you do not use on any other site, and you should not share it with anyone else.

Global-e follows accepted industry standards including the use of appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards to protect your information. For example, certain sensitive information such as data relating to fraud is processed over a secure sockets layer channel and is encryption, and Global-e’s payment gateway is Payment Card Industry compliant. However, no method of transaction over the internet is 100% secure and therefore we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Retaining your information

We and Global-e keep your information for only as long as is necessary for our purposes, and in particular to protect ourselves in the event of a legal claim (for example, information relating to a contract with you will be kept for the lifetime of the contract and up to ten years after).
