WHAT ARE ‘COOKIES’?
Cookies are small text files which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application. Your web browser (such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome) then sends these cookies back to the website or application on each subsequent visit so that they can recognise you and remember things like personalised details or user preferences.
Cookies are very useful and do lots of different jobs which help to make your experience on websites as smooth as possible. For example, they let you move between web pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your experience.
They are referred to as session or persistent cookies, depending on how long they are used:
- Session cookies only last for your online session and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.
- Persistent cookies stay on your computer or device after the browser has been closed and last for the period of time specified in the cookie. These persistent cookies are activated each time you visit the site where the cookie was generated.
When you use our Service either on a web browser or a device, the cookies may be set.
These cookies are essential in helping you to move around our website and to use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked may not be able to be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet.
Some examples of these essential cookies include:
- Identifying you as being signed in to Foodhawkers keeping you logged in throughout your visit so that you don’t need to sign in each and every time you change page.
- Tracking what content has been viewed so that we can count the number of views.
These cookies by third parties we do not control. These are called “third party cookies”. When you visit a page with embedded content, the service provider may set its own cookies on your web browser. Foodhawkers does not control the use of these cookies and cannot access them, as cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. You should check the third party websites for more information about these cookies.
