Resonac Corporation

Cookie Policy





We are committed to transparency and the protection of your privacy at Resonac Corporation ("Company", "we" "us"). This document tells you about our information gathering and data processing practices related to cookies and similar technologies we use on our website, https://www.shodex.com ("our website"), which is operated by us.





"Cookies" are small capacity text files that are saved in your browser or onto your device when you visit or use websites, applications, or online media, or see online advertising.


There are a number of different types of cookies. The type of cookies provided by us while you are visiting our website is a "first party cookie". This is because it is provided by us and we operate the domain you are accessing. A cookie provided by a company that does not operate the domain you are accessing is called a "third party cookie". While you are visiting our website, we allow third parties to set cookies on your browser (For details, see 2.2 below.).


Each cookie lasts for a different period of time. A "session cookie" will last only while your browser is open. When you close the browser, this cookie will be automatically deleted and your computer will forget you. A "persistent cookie" will survive even after the browser has been closed. As such, this cookie will recognise your device when you browse the internet by opening up the browser again. While this document is a Cookie Policy, it is also intended to cover the use of other identification technologies that we can use or which we can allow to be used when providing our website. When this Cookie Policy mentions cookies, it should be understood to include such similar technologies: “Local storage” generally refers to other places on a browser or device where information can be stored by websites, ads, or third parties (such as HTML5 local storage and browser cache).



2.How do we use cookies?

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of our website will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.


▪ "Functionality cookies": These cookies enable our website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.

▪ "Advertising cookies": These cookies may be set through our website by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites.
