1. What are cookies?
Information gathered through Cookies may include the date and time of visits, the use a User makes of the webpage, whether a User has visited the site before and what site referred the User to a particular web page.
Cookies cannot be executed as code or used to deliver viruses and they cannot enable us to access your hard drive. FMRS cannot read any information on your hard drive even if cookies are stored there.
2. Cookie types
- First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g. cookies placed by fmrs.web.auth.gr).
- Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie. The most common of this type of cookie is the Google Analytics™ cookie, you will see below.
- Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for a period specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
- Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window or a browser tab and access a website and finishes when they close the browser tab or the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
- Performance cookies: these cookies collect information about how you use a website – e.g. which pages you visit and if you experience any errors. These cookies do not collect any information that could identify you and are only used to help us improve how our website works, understand what interests our users and measure how effective our content is. Some performance cookies are managed by third parties.
