The use of cookies allows us to optimise your browsing experience, adapting the information and services offered to your interests, in order to provide you with a better experience whenever you visit us. The websites of SEK International School – Ecuador use Cookies to function, adapt and facilitate the User’s browsing experience as much as possible.

SEK International School – Ecuador’s email-marketing tools use small images that are invisible to users and are included in the emails. This technology allows us to know whether an email has been read or not, on what date, the IP address from which it has been consulted, etc. With this information, we carry out statistical and analytical studies on the sending and reception of emails in order to improve the services to which the user is subscribed and to offer information that may be of interest to them.

Why are they important?

  • From a technical point of view, they allow websites to work in a more agile and adapted way to the user’s preferences, such as storing the language, the country’s currency or detecting the access device.
  • They establish levels of protection and security that prevent or hinder cyber-attacks against the website or its users.
  • They allow media managers to obtain statistical data collected in the Cookies to improve the quality and experience of their services.
  • They are used to optimise the advertising we show to users, offering the advertising that best suits their interests.
