USE OF COOKIES

We use cookies and other technology to collect information about the use of our services. We collect information about the properties of the user’s device and about the user’s browsing activity on the site.

 

  1. WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is a small, unnamed, user-specific text file stored in the user’s browser. Only the server that has created the cookie can later read it and identify the browser, for example when the user returns to the site. Cookies do not harm the user’s device nor can they be used to identify individual users, unless the user has logged into the service.

As a rule, cookies are either session-based or persistent. Session-based cookies expire when the user terminates the session, while persistent cookies remain in the browser for a specified period or until the user deletes them. Cookies make websites easier to use and enable several functions, such as session tracking, website personalisation, easy login to the service and targeted advertising based on the user’s presumed interests.

First-party cookies are set by the site indicated in the browser’s address bar. We also use third-party cookies created by, for example, providers of measurement and tracking services, advertising technology suppliers and social media services. Fonecta’s cookies are classified as third-party cookies on Premium’s website.

We also use JavaScript to collect information about visitors to our website. All the collected information is generally available to the website administrator and other software running on the site. During information collection, each user is assigned an individual identifier that enables consecutive site downloads to be associated with the user’s browser and to recognize a returning visitor. This identifier is stored with cookies.

 

  1. HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

Among other things, cookies help us collect information about the use of our own website and the websites of our customers, the browsers used by website visitors and the types of devices used to access sites. We use cookies to provide service functions, analyse website use, optimize user experiences, carry out product development and reporting as well as target advertising on Premium’s website. Cookies also make our services easier to use and ensure that the advertising is more relevant for each user.

We carry out statistical analyses regarding the number of visitors to our site, the pages from which users transfer to our service, the effectiveness of advertising and the technological details of visiting browsers. These details help us better target content, such as information, products and offers, to individual users. We categorize users into target groups based on their browser behavior so that we can display relevant advertising and content to each target group, based on their probable interests. Information collected with the help of cookies can be linked to identified users.

Clearing cookies
