Cookie Policy

Last Updated: 25 May 2018, 12:59 UTC


This cookie policy describes what cookies are and how we use them on Bunker Ports News Worldwide (“Service” “we”, “our”, “us”), as well as your rights to control our use of them. By using the Service, you consent to the use of cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of text which contain a small amount of information. When you visit a website, cookies are sent from that website and stored either in your computer’s or mobile device’s memory temporarily and automatically deleted when you close your browser (session cookies ) or on your hard drive, your browser folder to be precise (persistent cookies.). Cookies are then sent back to the website to allow it to recognise your device when you make a return visit, or to authorise other designated websites to recognise your device for a particular purpose. Since cookies are text files, they cannot read information stored on your hard drive and are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer or mobile device.

Session cookies and persistent cookies:
There are two types of cookies, which were mentioned above: session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies exists only in temporary memory while the user navigates the website. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
Persistent cookies, also called permanent cookies, instead of expiring when the web browser is closed as session cookies do, a persistent cookie expires at a specific date or after a specific length of time. They are activated each time the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.

First-party cookies and third-party cookies:
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Bunker Ports News Worldwide) are called “first-party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies”. Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and help provide a better user experience. Great, but what does this mean you say? Cookies do lots of different jobs to generally make your experience of the Internet much smoother and more interactive, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently and remembering your preferences. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website and to provide a browsing experience that is unique to you. Amongst other things, the cookies we use allow us to calculate how many visitors we have – anonymously, of course – and how long they stay on our site, which of our categories our visitors prefer visiting, which of our articles our visitors prefer reading.

We do our best to respect users’ privacy. We use cookies to monitor and improve our services, but they also allow us to sell advertising space, which helps to keep us free to you, our readers. We sometimes include links on our site to goods and services offered by third parties. Cookies may be used to track your visits to third-party sites to help ensure that we are paid the correct amounts. Please note that these commercial arrangements do not influence our editorial content in any way.

What types of cookies do we use?

We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are essential for our website to operate, others are designed to remember your choices and improve your experience. Third parties serve cookies through our website for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

We use the following cookies (categorised by function):

Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies enable services you have specifically asked for.
These first-party cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies our website won’t work correctly.

Analytics or performance cookies
These cookies collect anonymous information on the pages visited.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. Analytics cookies may either be first-party cookies or third-party cookies. We only use these cookies to improve how our website works. By using the Service, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics. This is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics sets a cookie in order to evaluate use of those services and compile a report for us. To view their Privacy Policy go here:

Functionality cookies
These cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience.
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of our web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have requested, such as watching a video or commenting. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. By using the Service, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

Targeting cookies or advertising cookies
These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests.
Third parties may serve cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our website. These companies may collect information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide measurement services and target ads that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements.

Targeting cookies or advertising cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers . Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisations.
The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide these.
Like other websites that run third-party advertisements, Bunker Ports News Worldwide has no control over, and is not responsible for the advertisers’ practices, including their own use of cookies on the Service. We encourage you to review the advertisers’ policies for additional information.

Google AdSense: We use Google AdSense. Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to your website. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting Ad Settings.
