WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A “cookie” is a small text file that is sent from the server of FNG and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. This way we can remember your preferences when visiting our Website.
The information registered by these cookies may only be read by FNG and only during the visit of the Website. You can refuse the use of these cookies by modifying the navigation configuration settings.
KIND OF COOKIES
Cookies can be subdivided based on their offspring, function and durability.
First party cookies are cookies set by a website visited by the user i.e. the website displayed in the address bar. (e.g. cookies placed by www.Fri-day.com).
Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. A third party cookie occurs when a user visits a Website and a third party sets a cookie through that Website (e.g. cookies placed by Google, Twitter and Facebook).
Functional cookies are cookies that ensure the proper functioning of the Website (e.g. cookies for log-in or registration, language preferences). Functional cookies are logically first party cookies.
Non-functional cookies are cookies that can be set for statistical, social, targeting and commercial purposes. They are not related to the mere technical support of the Website. Cookies with statistical purposes allow us to check which pages of the Website you visit, where your computer is localized etc. Cookies with social purposes allow the user to share the content of the visited Website through social media directly to others. Cookies with targeting purposes allow a creation of your profile based on your surfing behaviour so that the displayed advertisement will be adapted to your interests. Cookies with commercial purposes keep track of how many and which advertisements were displayed to a user. Non-functional cookies can be first party or third party cookies.
Persistent cookies are stored on a users’ device in between browser sessions which allow preferences or actions of the user to be remembered. The cookies are activated every time the user that set these cookies visits the Website (e.g. cookies set by social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics etc.) Most non-functional cookies are persistent cookies.
Session cookies allow websites to link the actions of a user only during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser screen and ends when he closes the browser screen. Session cookies are only set temporarily. When you close the browser, the cookies will be removed. Most functional cookies are session cookies.
If at any moment you want to revoke your permission, you have to remove your cookies through your browser settings. If you wish to find out more about removing or blocking cookies, we find this website quite helpful: http://www.aboutcookies.org
