The Cookies We Set
We set a limited number of cookies to ensure that our website is functional and to optimise your user experience. These are:
These cookies are core to the functionality of the site. Many of these cookies reference our website hosting platform WordPress but contain no personal data, as our website is available to all visitors without need for a login.
Third-party providers of certain capabilities may require cookies to provide that functionality. At present, the following providers are allowed cookies on the Vapor 156 website:

Third party analytics and online marketing are used to track and measure usage of this site so that we can continue to produce engaging content. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site or pages you visit which helps us to understand how we can improve the site for you:
Google Analytics /Google Tag Manager

You can prevent the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing a browser plug-in (IP anonymization).

As an AdWords customer, Vapor 156 also uses Google conversion tracking by Google on some pages. This means that Google AdWords places a cookie on your computer (“conversion cookie”) if you have accessed our website via a Google ad. These cookies become invalid after 30 days. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that someone has clicked on an ad and been directed to our page as a result. Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected with the help of the conversion cookie allows us to prepare conversion statistics to optimize our services. AdWords customers know, for instance, the total number of customers who have clicked on their ad and been redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag, but they do not receive any information by which users can be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can prevent the placement of the necessary cookie, for instance through a browser setting that deactivates the automatic placement of cookies in general. You can also deactivate conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain“googleadservices.com”.
