What are cookies?
A cookie is a small amount of data that is placed in the browser of your computer or on your mobile device. So-called “first-party cookies” are cookies which are served by the entity operating the domain through which the cookie is served. Agrifac.com’s own cookies are, therefore “first party cookies”. In case we allow others to serve cookies through the agrifac.com websites and apps, these cookies are so-called “third-party cookies”.
In addition, there is a difference between session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies will only exist until you close your browser. Permanent cookies have a longer lifespan and are not automatically deleted once you close your browser. We serve cookies with a maximum lifespan of 13 months. Only in exceptional circumstances, such as for security purposes and where absolutely necessary, will a cookie have a longer lifespan than that.
Other tracking technologies
Next to cookies, other tracking technologies are used which are similar to cookies. These can include web beacons (also known as pixel tags, web bugs or gifs), tracking URLs or software development kits (SDKs). A web beacon is a tiny graphic image of just one pixel that can be delivered to your computer as part of a web page request, in an app, in an advertisement or in an HTML email message. Pixels can be used to retrieve information from your devices, such as your device type or operating system, IP address, and time of visit. They are also used to serve and read cookies in your browser. Tracking URLs are used to understand from which referring website the agrifac.com websites or apps are used. SDKs are small pieces of code included in apps, which function like cookies and web beacons.
All these technologies are together referred to in this Policy as “cookies”.
