What does “cookie” mean?
A cookie is data sent from a website and stored on your computer which allows websites to record your browsing activity and remember information. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer, smartphone or other device when you visit our website. It allows us, or our third-party partners to recognise you and make your visit easier and more useful to you when you revisit our website.
Who is collecting the information?
There are different types of cookies. Some cookies come directly from our website and others come from third parties which place cookies on our site. Cookies can be stored for varying lengths of time on your browser or device. Session cookies are deleted from your computer or device when you close your web-browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer or device until deleted or until they reach their expiry date. SBI will only collect, use or disclose your personal data where it is fair and lawful to do so.
Cookies allow us to recognise users (where appropriate), tailor the content on our website to fit the needs of our website's visitors and helps us improve the user experience. Without certain types of cookies enabled, we can't guarantee that the website and your experience of it are as we intended it to be.
This includes where available, your IP address and pseudonymous identifiers, operating system and browser type and, depending on the cookie, also includes the reporting of statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns.
What cookies do we use?
- Google Analytics Cookies
The first cookie used allows SBI to identity the type of equipment you are using, such as a computer, a tablet or a cellphone, to optimize the functioning of the website. The information is no longer traceable after the expiration time of 1 minute. The second one helps us identify the type of user. This cookie lasts 24 hours. The last one is a statistical data cookie that retraces information related to your browsing habits on our website. The expiration time is 1 hour. Those cookies are managed by SBI.
- Locally Controlled Cookies
Those cookies retain the information for three months. The data that is collected is mainly related to the country, language, currency and type of browser. We also use applied cookies. The reason behind keeping this information is always related to optimizing the customer experience.
How does SBI deal with transactional data?
Billing information, such as name, address, country, postal/zip code, phone numbers, etc. are kept by SBI through its ERP. Our third-party partners, in this case the website developers, also preserve that information.
In both cases, the preservation of billing information is not managed by cookies. Moreover, because the information has no expiration time, SBI and third-party partners would be obliged to delete data if a consumer requested it. Only an ID, which would be in the form of a code, could be kept retracing a transaction, and all information allowing the personal identification would be deleted.
How can you reject and delete cookies?
