We place cookies on your device in order to provide you with personalised access to essential services, enhance website functionality and to deliver to you online ads that are tailored to your interests. These tailored ads are called Interest-Based Ads or Online Behavioural Advertising.
Duracell adheres to the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance Principles for Online Behavioural Advertising and Directive 2009/136/EC of the European Parliament.
<h3 id=”what-is-a-cookie”>What is a Cookie?</h3>
Cookies are small files placed on your computer or device by a website or mobile application. The cookie has a unique ID assigned to your device, but does not contain any of your personal information like name or email address. It helps to navigate from page to page on a website, provide secure connections, and remembers preferences from a previous visit, when you return.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. We use both persistent and session cookies on our website.
<h4>Non-Operational Cookies / Other Technologies</h4>
<h4>Google Analytics Cookies</h4>
<h4>Online Behavioural Advertising (OBA) Cookies</h4>
We also collect information through OBA Cookies to serve Interest-Based Ads according to certain general interest categories or segments that we have inferred based on information such as:
<li>The web pages you view and links you click on Duracell websites and other websites you visit.</li>
<li>Mobile applications you use.</li>
<li>The Duracell emails you view and links you click from within the email.</li>
<li> Demographic data.</li>
<li> Offline and online purchase data.</li>
We have designed our interest-based advertising systems to deliver Interest-Based Ads to you based only on data that does not personally identify you.
We do not collect sensitive personal information (as defined by Directive 2009/136/EC) from you without first obtaining your consent.
We use third party service providers to help administer our interest-based advertising systems. We require that these third party service providers protect the information they use on Duracell’s behalf for online behavioural advertising and not to use it for any other purpose

You can prevent your receipt of interest-based advertising on websites by deleting and declining cookies in your web browser(s). You can read more about cookies at <a href=”http://www.allaboutcookies.org/cookies/”>[http://www.allaboutcookies.org/cookies]</a>
If you don’t want us to place non-operational or online behavioural advertising cookies on your device, <a href=”http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices”>[you can refuse]</a>. Note: Refusing online behavioural advertising cookies does not mean you won’t see any online ads. It just means that your ads for Duracell products won’t be based on your interests. You may still receive interest-based ads from other companies – where you have not opted out of their cookies.
