Please read this cookie policy carefully as it contains important information on who we are and how we use cookies on our website, https://biowavego.co.uk (“Website”)

This policy should be read together with our website privacy policy, which can be accessed at the bottom of the home screen on the Website and sets out how and why we collect, store, use and share personal information generally, as well as your rights in relation to your personal information and details of how to contact us and supervisory authorities if you have a complaint.

The Website is operated by Biowave Limited. We are a web-based company who offer a 100% drug-free, wearable electronic pain relief device, which is clinically proven to reduce the symptoms of pain.

Our Website

This cookie policy relates to your use of our Website,

Throughout our Website we may link to other websites owned and operated by certain trusted third parties to make our products or additional products and services available to you. These other third-party websites may also use cookies or similar technologies in accordance with their own separate policies. For privacy information relating to these other third-party websites, please consult their policies as appropriate. We hold no responsibility for the use of third-party cookies.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or other electronic device) when you use our Website. These help us recognise you and your device and store information about your preferences or past actions, all of which are to enhance your browsing and shopping experience or to enable us to assess your marketing preferences.

For example, we may monitor how many times you visit the Website, which pages you go to, traffic data, location data and the originating domain name of your internet service provider. This information helps us to build a profile of our users and understand our users’ preferences. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.

For further information on our use of cookies, including a detailed list of your information which we and others may collect through cookies, please see below.

For further information on cookies generally, including how to control and manage them, visit the guidance on cookies published by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office, www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.

Consent to use cookies and changing settings

We will ask for your consent to place cookies or other similar technologies on your device, except where they are essential for us to provide you with a service that you have requested (e.g. to enable you to put items in your shopping basket and use our check-out process).

You can withdraw any consent to the use of cookies or manage any other cookie preferences by clicking on the “manage consent” pop up icon on the left-hand side of our Website. You can then adjust your preferences and review this policy. It may be necessary to refresh the page for the updated settings to take effect.

Our use of cookies

There are two main types of cookies that we use, marketing and functional.

Marketing cookies are cookies or any other form of local storage used to create user profiles to display advertising or to track you as the user on our Website or across several websites for similar marketing purposes.

Functional cookies are placed to make it easier for you to use our Website and to store your user preferences. This way, you should not need to repeatedly enter the same information when visiting our Website. As an example of functional cookies, items that you put in your basket will remain there until you have paid. We may place these cookies without your consent.

Social media buttons are included on our Website i.e., for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, to promote webpages on social networks. These buttons work using pieces of code coming from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram themselves. This code places cookies. These social media buttons also can store and process certain information, so a personalised advertisement can be shown to you.

Please read the privacy statement of these social networks (which can change regularly) to read what they do with your (personal) data which they process using these cookies. The data that is retrieved is anonymised as much as possible. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are located in the United States.
