What are cookies and how do they work?
A cookie is a text file containing information that can be remembered by a web browser between pages. When an individual uses a web browser to access the internet their browser can create cookies which are stored on the user’s computer. Cookies are purely a string of text and numbers, cannot contain viruses or other malicious software and therefore are not programs
There are two main types of cookies - session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies only last during a single visit. When a user closes their web browser the session cookie information is automatically removed from their computer. The FoieGrasGourmet website uses session cookies for two purposes:
1. Two session cookies are set that temporarily store a unique identifier for each visitor to the website. This identifier is a random series of letters and numbers and doesn't contain any personal or identifiable information. It is used to help count the number of visitors to the FoieGrasGourmet website.
2. Two cookies are set by the computer systems that run the FoieGrasGourmet website. These cookies are used as part of the process of sending web pages to the user's web browser and are essential - no website using Microsoft technology will work without these cookies.
Persistent cookies are stored by the user's web browser even when the web browser has been closed, so that the next time a user goes back to the website that originally set the cookie, the web site can read information back from the cookie.
Persistent cookies have an expiry date which controls when they are automatically deleted. This can be anything from a few minutes to several years.
FoieGrasGourmet use persistent cookies for the following purposes:
2. FoieGrasGourmet use their own cookies to remember which items a customer has put into their basket. By using a persistent cookie for this, a customer can close their web browser and come back to the FoieGrasGourmet website subsequently and still be able to access items that had been put into their shopping basket on a previous visit. This cookie is essential for the functioning of the FoieGrasGourmet website as without it customers would be unable to place items into the shopping basket. The cookie last for 1 year but is cleared once an order has been placed.
3. FoieGrasGourmet also use a cookie to remember a user's website preferences such as preferred language, currency and delivery country. The first time a customer visits the FoieGrasGourmet website they are asked to confirm this information which is then stored in a cookie set to last for 1 year. Without this cookie the customer would have to re-enter their preferences every time they visit the website.
4. A number of persistent cookies are also set by the computers that run the FoieGrasGourmet website. These cookies are solely used to record technical information necessary for our web servers to work properly. No personally identifiable information in stored in these cookies.
5. All cookies used by FoieGrasGourmet are 'first party' cookies. This means that any cookie set on the FoieGrasGourmet website can only be read back from the FoieGrasGourmet website. No other website is able to read or access information from any cookie set by the FoieGrasGourmet website. We do not use 'third party' cookies which would permit this sort of behaviour by other websites.
