  1. What are cookies, etc.?

    Cookies, etc., are files that allow a website to store a user’s behavior and preferences (e.g., login, language, font size, and other display preferences) for a specified period of time for use when the user accesses the site again. The cookies, etc. are sent to the user’s website from the website visited by the user. This eliminates the need to re-enter information when the user revisits the site or navigates from one page to another.
    Cookie files are stored in the user’s web browser to recognize the Service or third-party user information to facilitate the user’s next visit or to enhance the user’s convenience during the next visit.
    Cookies include persistent cookies and session (temporary) cookies. When you go offline, the persistent cookies remain on your computer or mobile device. Session cookies, on the other hand, are deleted when the web browser is closed.
    Local storage files are stored on the user’s device and have a permanent retention period, so the data can be retained semi-permanently.

  2. How to use cookies, etc.

    Use of the Service may result in the creation of multiple cookies, etc. in your web browser or local browser. By using these cookies, etc. to track information on the use of the Service, TCVB can measure the effectiveness of the website, analyze how users are using the Service, and make improvements. By using cookies, etc., TCVB can also measure the number of times content is displayed, the number of times advertisements are displayed, and the number of clicks, thereby providing information tailored to the needs of each user.

    TCVB may share information on cookies, etc. with designated third parties, including advertisers, data controllers and information technology companies.

Each partner may use this information in conjunction with any other information users have provided to the respective partner, or any other information collected when users use the respective partner’s services.
    In terms of the use of third-party cookies, etc., TCVB uses, for example, Google Analytics to measure website traffic and to analyze the content of TCVB’s website viewed by users. We also use the information to conduct market research and to improve the functionality or content of our website.
    Partners may include those located outside the European Economic Area (EEA) (including countries or regions whose privacy laws differ from or are less protective than the standards of EEA countries). The data protection laws of these countries may differ from those of the country in which the user is residing and may not grant many of the rights guaranteed to the user within the EEA. TCVB will ensure that adequate measures are taken to protect users’ cookies, etc. by implementing general contractual provisions based on the EU General Data Protection Regulation and other regulations.
