This enables us to personalize certain services specifically for you, such as determining the language of Gal Interiors services. It also helps us prevent fraud or abuse related to Gal Interiors services (such as identifying suspicious transactions or activities).

We may combine this information with the data we obtain from you or collect about you for analytical and advertising purposes.

  1. A) Cookies and Related Technologies

Summary: We use our own servers and technologies like cookies to automatically collect and store information about how you interact with Gal Interiors services and the devices you use to interact with them.

Cookies are small pieces of data that online services place on your device for purposes such as remembering your device and authenticating your identity. “Web beacons” are transparent pixel images that allow online services to collect information about how you interact with them (such as whether you opened an email or clicked on an ad). Other common tracking technologies include tags, scripts, local shared objects (e.g., Flash cookies), local storage (e.g., HTML5), and similar tools.

Gal Interiors services use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies to automatically collect, store, and read files on your device. These tools can be delivered in the context of either first-party (i.e., Gal Interiors) or third-party (i.e., other companies). They enable Gal Interiors services to operate more efficiently and help us gather information about how you interact with us.

We also use these technologies to connect to our servers for the purpose of collecting and storing information about how you interact with Gal Interiors services and keeping records. Examples of such information include data sent to us by your device, browser, or operating system when you access Gal Interiors services (such as your device’s ID, IP addresses, and hardware or software specifications), and information about how you use your Gal Interiors services account if applicable (such as the features you use, in-service interactions, statistics, and other relevant data).

We use the information collected through technologies like cookies for various purposes, including:

Monitoring, securing, and preserving Gal Interiors services (e.g., preventing fraud).

Enhancing your browsing experience (e.g., simplifying logins to our services).

Analyzing and improving our operations (e.g., aggregating traffic and usage patterns).

Managing the display of ads (which may include providing targeted offers).

Supporting and measuring the effectiveness of our communications and marketing campaigns (e.g., understanding whether you click on our ads or open our emails).

Customizing your visit and storing your preferences and settings (e.g., displaying content in your local language).

You can learn more about cookies and similar technologies, how to manage or disable them by visiting http://aboutcookies.org/ or checking your browser’s privacy features. Note that traditional cookie management methods may not affect the use of certain other tracking technologies, but some browsers may offer their own tools to remove HTML5.

Disabling tracking technologies may prevent you from fully enjoying all the features of Gal Interiors services and may lead to Gal Interiors services not operating as intended.

  1. B) Analytical Companies and Interest-Based Advertising

Summary: To enhance Gal Interiors services and better understand how you interact with them, as well as to support our marketing activities, we partner with third parties such as content providers, analytical companies, and advertising networks. These companies may collect automatic information from you related to your visit.

In addition to our tracking technologies, other companies may set their own cookies or similar tools when you visit Gal Interiors services. This includes vendors we use for our services (e.g., web analytics services), content-providing third parties (such as videos from YouTube), or third parties providing offers within Gal Interiors services (such as ads from advertising networks). Depending on how our partners use these tools individually or collectively, we may receive reports in this regard.

For example, we use third-party analytical providers like Google Analytics to assist in evaluating the use of Gal Interiors services and reporting on it. We also partner with advertising companies to deliver more relevant ads based on your likely interests (e.g., ads based on your browsing activities, including while using Gal Interiors services and other online services). These companies may set and read their own cookies and similar technologies to collect information about your online activities on websites and services.

Some analytical providers and advertising companies offer you choices regarding how they gather and use information directly through their websites. To learn more about Google Analytics, click here.

Please note that opting out of interest-based advertising does not mean that automatic information collection within Gal Interiors services will be entirely disabled, that you will see fewer ads, or that you will no longer see ads. It simply means that the ads you encounter will no longer be based on your interests and may be less relevant to you.

Deletion of Personal Data

When Gal Interiors processes personal data entirely or automatically, data will be deleted, and Gal Interiors must ensure that the data becomes entirely inaccessible or unusable. This guarantee is the responsibility of the data controller.

The mentioned deletion counting methods are subject to the Regulation and are the responsibility of the data controller for updates when necessary.

Destruction of Personal Data

During these processes, Gal Interiors employees and relevant departments are responsible for reporting the relevant data to be destroyed to the relevant Gal Interiors unit, after which Gal Interiors will take all necessary technical and administrative measures.Anonymization of Personal Data

The data controller department is responsible for anonymizing personal data at Gal Interiors. The data controller department may seek support from various departments within Gal Interiors, as long as it retains control of the process. During the anonymization of data, Gal Interiors may use methods such as one-way functions and encryption.
