Cookies Policy – The French Food

1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that a website, when visited, places on the user’s computer or mobile device through the internet browser. Placing cookies will help the website to recognise your device on a subsequent visit. We use the term cookies in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

The cookies used do not collect information that identifies the user, however, if you are already our client we can monitor your visits to the site provided that, at least once, you have initiated your navigation from some communication sent by us, for example, SMS and e-mail.

Cookies also collect generic information, namely how users arrive and use the websites or the zone of the country/countries through which they access the website, etc.

Cookies only retain information related to your preferences.

At any time the user can, through his internet browser, decide to be notified about the receipt of cookies and block their entry into his system.

The refusal to use cookies on the website, may result in the inability to access some of its areas or receive personalized information.

2. What are cookies used for?

Cookies are used to help determine the usefulness, interest and number of uses of websites, allowing faster and more efficient browsing and eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information.

3. What types of cookies do we use?

We use cookies for different functions:

Essential cookies – Some cookies are essential to access specific areas of our website. They enable you to navigate the site and use its applications, such as accessing secure areas of the site by logging in. Without these cookies, services that require it cannot be provided.

Analytical cookies – We use these cookies to analyse how users use the site and monitor its performance. This enables us to provide a high quality experience by personalising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we use performance cookies to learn which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, or to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. Based on site usage, we may also use these cookies to highlight articles or services on the site that we think will be of interest to users. These cookies are only used for the purposes of creation and statistical analysis and never collect personal information.

Functionality cookies – We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember user preferences. For example, cookies avoid typing the user’s name each time the user accesses the site. We also use functionality cookies to provide enhanced services to the user, such as commenting on an article. In short, functionality cookies store your preferences regarding your use of the site so that you do not have to re-configure the site each time you visit.

Third party cookies – These serve to measure the success of applications and the effectiveness of third party advertising on our website.

Advertising Cookies – These serve to target advertising according to the interests of each user and the number of visits made, allowing you to limit the number of times the ad is displayed. These cookies help measure the effectiveness of advertising.

4. The cookies used can be

Permanent cookies – These are stored at browser level in your access devices (computer, notebook, mobile and tablet) and are used whenever the user makes a new visit to the website. They are generally used to direct navigation according to the user’s interests, allowing us to provide a more personalized service.

Session cookies – These are temporary, they remain in the cookies of your internet browser until you leave the site. The information obtained allows us to identify problems and provide a better browsing experience.

After consenting to the use of cookies, the user can always disable some or all of our cookies.

All browsers allow you to accept, refuse or delete cookies, in particular by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. You can configure cookies in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser.

Please note that disabling cookies may prevent some web services from working correctly, partially or totally affecting navigation on the website.

We remind you that by disabling cookies, parts of our website may not function properly.

5. Other technologies

In addition to cookies, we and our partners may also use other technologies, including data stored on your browser or device, identifiers associated with your device and other software that serve similar purposes to cookies. These technologies include:

Pixel Tags – Pixel tags (also called beacons or pixels) are small blocks of code installed or accessed by a web page, email, or ads. Pixel tags can retrieve information about your device and browser and how you interact with them. This includes, for example, information about your device type, operating system, browser type and version, website visited, time of visit, referring site, IP address, whether you opened an email or clicked on an ad, and other similar information, including the cookie that uniquely identifies your device. Pixels allow third parties to set and read browser cookies from a domain in which they do not operate and collect information about visitors to that domain, typically with the permission of the domain owner. Pixel tags can also be used to test different experiences and content on websites.

Local and Session Storage – Local and session storage generally refers to other locations on a browser or device where information may be stored by websites, advertisements or other third parties (such as local HTML5 storage and browser caching).

IP Addresses – IP addresses (IP is short for “internet protocol”) are assigned by internet service providers to all devices connected to the internet. Site owners, including ours and the third-party ad serving and analytics services we use, have access to their users’ IP addresses and the general location of those IP addresses. Using IP addresses, we and our partners can identify the country, region, and sometimes the city from which users are connecting to the Internet, as well as the Internet service provider they use. IP addresses can be used for geolocation, as can services such as Google Analytics.

Software Development Kits – Software Development Kits (also called SDKs) function like pixels and cookies, but operate in the context of the mobile app, where pixels and cookies do not always work. Pieces of code (the SDK) are installed in the app, allowing us and our partners to collect certain information about your interaction with the app and about your device and network.

Device Identifiers – Your unique device identifier is a combination of information that is unique to your device. We may collect this information or create a unique device fingerprint so that we can identify your device. We use them in a manner similar to cookies.

These above technologies help our online services run better and help us create services and advertising. The technologies may be delivered, either by us or by third parties, to your device. These third parties are our Internet analytics or carefully selected advertising partners.

6. Why do we use cookies?

Although the cookies used on our websites change from time to time as we improve and update our services, the cookies that we and our partners generally use fall into the following three categories:

Mandatory cookies: These are cookies that are necessary to allow basic features of our website or app to work, such as providing secure log-in or remembering what stage you are at when placing an order. For example, they help us authenticate your use, prevent the fraudulent use of login credentials, maintain the confidentiality of your data and detect malicious activity.

Functional cookies: These cookies allow us and our partners to analyse your use of the site in order to assess and improve our performance. Cookies collect information about the number of visitors to the site, who directed visitors to our site and the pages visited on our site. They help us to understand and analyse which pages are most visited and where users experience difficulties, so that we can make impactful changes to the user experience. We may also ask external partners to help us better understand and analyze how you interact with our online services, including by placing analytics and research cookies on our behalf. For example, we use third-party analytics providers, such as Google Analytics, to evaluate and report on how our online services are performing. These companies may set and read their own cookies to collect information about your online activities on websites and services, and this information may cause different users to have different experiences on our websites, among other things. Cookies are also used to provide a better customer experience on this site. For example, remembering your login details, saving what is in your shopping cart or providing us with information about how our site is used. These cookies help us to remember things like your region, language, setting preferences, referring sites and what you have seen or done on our online services. We hope that by doing this we can offer you a more personalised and convenient experience that will make you want to come back and visit again. Many of our site features should still work without functional cookies, but your experience may not be as functional and you will need to enter your preferences each time you visit.

Advertising Cookies: These cookies are used to serve ads on our site or on other websites that are more relevant to you. We share this information with advertisers or use it to better understand your interests. For example, advertising cookies are used to share data with advertisers so that the ads you see are more relevant to you or allow you to share certain pages with social networks or post comments on our site. Your behavior on our websites may result, for example, in the display of Google or Facebook ads on other third-party websites you visit, and our advertising partners may use cookies to help show you ads that are more tailored to the interests you have shown while browsing our websites. We and our partners also often use cookies to count the number of times an ad is shown and to measure how often people do things like click on or view marketing communications or advertisements we send them, both on and off our websites.

In our cookie preference tool, we explain more specifically for what purpose each different cookie is used.

We and our partners may link any information we collect through cookies and other technologies to information you provide to us, to information obtained from other sources including online and offline data providers (such as demographic data and interest-based data) and, where you agree to this through your privacy settings on these search or social media sites, to information obtained from social media. This information is collected by the way you use social media, such as what you post or the subject of your messages or comments.

7. What information is collected? 

We and our partners use cookies to collect information about how you interact with and browse our websites, as well as information about the device and software you use to do so.

This information is detailed in our privacy policy, and may include statistical data from:

  • Interactions between websites and applications, including language preferences, date and time stamps, clicks, scrolling, navigation times, searches, referrals and exit pages;
  • Information about your device, such as IP addresses, unique device ID, user ID, processing capabilities, manufacturer and model, language and other regional settings, geographic location, and screen resolution and similar settings;
  • Your connection to online services, including details about the network and software you are using, including browser type and version, operating system name and version, ISP and your preference settings; and
  • How well websites and apps work for you, including any issues you encounter, such as loading errors and response times.

This information may be combined with other information that we or our partners store about you, for example, to support our marketing efforts by serving Google ads or marketing messages based on how you have navigated with us or your previous visits to and interactions with our website.

8. Who places the cookies in the browser?

Cookies placed on your device by us while you are on our website are called “first party cookies”. If our partners place cookies on your device while you are on our site, these are called “third party cookies”. These cookies are controlled by third parties and not by us. For example, when you visit our site, Google Analytics sets its own cookies in your web browser. They record your visit and this information is shared with other organisations.

9. Cookies controlled by third parties

We do not control third-party cookies and cannot remove them. Only the third party can set third party cookies, but you can take control of cookie removal using your browser settings or our cookie preference tool. You can also read our partners’ privacy policies to ensure you are familiar with how they use cookies. To learn more about companies that provide third-party cookies on our online services and how they use the information they collect, please continue reading this document.
