IP Address and Cookie Policy

 

introduction

ZAMMIT LA ROSA FOOTWEAR LTD (C2975) of Zammit La Rosa Foorwear, St Julian’s Road, San Gwann, Malta (“We”; “Us”; “Our” or “ZLR”) collects two types of information about you resulting from your use of its website, www.kingshoeshop.net (the “Site”): (i) personal information, including your name and e-mail address and (ii) aggregate information, this being generated from the practices which We have in place in relation to ‘cookies’ and the Internet Protocol Address (“IP Address”) of its users.

Our practices in relation to the collection and processing of such personal information are set out in Our privacy policy.

Correspondingly, the practices which We have in place regarding the generation of aggregate information (as mentioned above) are described below. By continuing to browse the Site, you are agreeing to the practices set out herein.

(a) ip address

what happens when you visit our site

Every time you connect to the internet or, if you use an always-on connection such as broadband or ADSL, when you boot up your computer you are automatically assigned a unique identifying number known as an IP Address. This IP Address, which contains information regarding the location of your computer on the internet (your country of origin) and the name of your internet service provider (ISP), is automatically logged by our Site.

 

  • What is an IP Address?

When you first started your internet session (i.e. your computer connected to the internet) your computer was automatically assigned a unique number (normally in the region of 9 or 10 decimal numbers) known as an IP Address. This is your computer’s unique address on the internet. Without such an IP Address, websites would not be able to deliver their content to you as they would not be able to find your computer on the internet. Since each time you disconnect and reconnect to the internet a new IP Address is automatically assigned to your computer, IP Addresses are not inherently capable of identifying you as an individual. An IP Address does, however, contain information regarding the location of your computer on the internet (your country) and the name of your internet service provider (ISP).

  • How do we collect your IP Address?

Each time you visit a page on Our Site, your computer sends out a message to our Site asking for the content. This message sent by your computer also encloses your IP Address as a form of “return address” so that our website may find your computer on the internet in order to send it the requested content. Our web-server automatically logs all these messages.

  • What do we do with your IP Address?

When we log your IP Address, the data collected is grouped up with the other logged IP addresses in order to provide us with statistics on the geographic location of visitors to our Site, how long they stay on our site which are the most viewed pages and for other statistical reasons.

Collecting this type of information allows us to generate aggregate information for the purposes of Our Site, include in terms of overall user activities online (such as the number of unique visitors, pages accessed most frequently or the search terms entered). It also allows us to administer our Site, diagnose any potential server problems, analyse visitor trends and statistics, and generally help us provide you with a better internet experience. IP Addresses are not stored for longer than necessary for the above stated purposes.

(b) cookies
