What are Cookies?
Cookies are harmless text files that web servers can store on your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website. They allow the server to recognize you when you revisit. There are two main types:
- Transient (or per-session) cookies
These only exist for your website visit and are deleted on exit. They recognize you as you move between pages, for example, recording items added to an online shopping basket. These cookies also help maintain security.
- Persistent (or permanent) cookies
These stay on your machine until expiry or deletion. Many are built with automatic deletion dates to help ensure your hard drive doesn’t get overloaded. These cookies often store and re-enter your log-in information, so you don’t need to remember membership details.
We use both types of cookies.
Additionally, cookies can be first or third-party cookies. First-party cookies are owned and created by the website you’re viewing- in this case by FZCO. Third-party cookies are owned and created by an independent company, usually a company providing a service to the website owners. In our case, third-party cookies provided by this Website are still subject to the provisions set out below.
Internet cookies are common, do not harm your system, and do not retrieve information about you stored on your hard drive – they just store or gather website information. They help you do things online, like remembering logon details so you don’t have to re-enter them when revisiting a website.
