What is a cookie?

Put simply, a cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive . The information the cookie contains is set by Fitacode and can be used as notification for whenever anyone visits our site. To enhance your user experience on our website, cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. Our website uses cookies to make the browsing experience more efficient and enjoyable.

Can cookies threaten users' privacy?

Cookies are stored on the computer's hard drive but they cannot access the hard drive - therefore a cookie cannot read other information saved on the hard drive, or gain access to a user's contact details. They only contain and transfer to the server as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to a certain web site. A server cannot set a cookie for a domain that it is not a member of. In spite of this, users quite often find in their computer files cookies from websites that they have never visited. One of the biggest concerns and fears of people is regarding information passed on to third parties without consent.

Targeting - We use Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online and make ads more relevant (“Remarketing”).
