Cookies Policy



A cookie is a small amount of data (a small file) sent to your computer/device by a website. The website tells your web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) to store these cookies on your computer/device. There are two types of cookies. Session cookies are deleted from your computer/device when you close your web browser. Persistent cookies remain stored on your computer/device even after your web browser is closed.

Advanced Berry Breeding (ABB) uses persistent cookies to make navigating our services easier, to analyze the use of our services and to improve the quality of our services. Session cookies are also used in this process. Your user name may also be stored in a cookie if you are logged on to our services. A list of cookies we use is presented below.

Performance cookies

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

Targeting cookies

These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Functional cookies

These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

Rejecting Cookies

You can refuse cookies by adjusting your browser settings (e.g. Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) to disable all or certain cookies (see your web browser manual or help function). If you disable cookies, some services may not be available to you.

On our website we have implemented the Google Analytics Advertising Features, “Display and Search Remarketing” and “Advertising Reporting Features,” in order to advertise online (which we do) via Google’s “Remarketing” feature. Third-party vendors, including Google, may show our ads on websites across the Internet. We and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our website.
