This Notice explains how SICO BSC (c) and/ or its subsidiaries ("we", "us", and "ours" or “SICO”) uses a limited number of cookies when you visit our website at www.sicobank.com ("website"). It explains what these cookies are and why we use them. Although this Notice relates generally to the website of SICO. it is only intended to meet the legal obligation to inform visitors of cookies that are used on the Website.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, SICO) 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.

Why do we use cookies?

We use a limited number of cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our websites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track the use of our website.

Types of cookies on our website:

Essential website cookies
These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Websites and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.

Performance and functionality cookies
These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our Websites without these cookies, certain functionality (like videos) may become unavailable.

Analytics and customisation cookies
These cookies collect information that is used in aggregate form to help us understand how our Website is being used. This does not enable us to engage in targeted marketing (and we do not engage in marketing anyway).

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. Some websites use similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable website owners to recognise when someone has visited their website or opened an e-mail sent to them. This allows website owners, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page to another within the website, to deliver or communicate with cookies. We do not use web beacons or other tracking technologies.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects (LSOs)?

"Flash Cookies" (also known as Local Shared Objects) are used by some website owners to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of services, fraud prevention and for other site operations. We do not use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects.

Do you use social networking cookies?

These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our Website through third party social networking and other websites. We do not use these sorts of cookies.

Do your cookies serve targeted advertising?

We do not engage in targeted marketing and we do not use cookies that would enable us to engage in such activities.
