Farys considers the protection of privacy extremely important and attaches great value to the proper protection of your personal data. 

By means of this cookie policy, Farys would like to provide you – as visitor to and user of our website – with information and control as far as possible over the collection, processing and use of your personal data. Please read this cookie policy through carefully, and read it together with our privacy policy. Not only your rights are set out below, but also the way in which you can exercise those rights.

What are the personal data that are processed and for what purposes?

To clarify this in full, we will first explain in general what cookies are and what they do (a). We will then run through the cookies, subdivided into categories in our cookie list (b). We will strive in this way to be as transparent as possible.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small and simple text files that are saved in the browser or on the hard drive of your computer(s) or mobile device(s) when you visit a website. Then you can, for example, be identified as a visitor to our website(s) during a subsequent visit, so that we will be better able to adjust our website(s) to your wishes, preferences and convenience.

Cookies do not execute any actions on your computer(s) or mobile device(s), they merely provide your browser with extra information. So, our functional cookies operate as reminders or prompts for website(s). They are able to recall user settings and other data (choice of language, login data etc.), but do not save names, addresses, ages or other personal data (apart from your IP address in certain cases).

Have you surfed to our website? Then our website, on condition you give permission, is able to place cookies automatically on the hard drive of your computer(s) or mobile device(s). If you do not give your permission, we will only place cookies that are strictly necessary. These essential cookies are there to allow the website to function properly. The cookies that we request your permission for are there to improve your user experience on the website and/or to display targeted adverts, and this only to attune the website better to your needs, wishes and preferences. 

Apart from cookies, there are also other technologies included in this policy. This concerns for example JavaScripts, web beacons, SDKs and pixels. These are technologies that along with cookies allow a system to gather information, to save it in small and simple text files, and then to send it. Cookies and other technologies are used on virtually all existing websites and apps. 

Our cookie list

This cookie list subdivides the cookies into different categories according to origin, functionality and lifetime. We make use of a subdivision by category of cookies, i.e. essential cookies, statistical cookies, functional cookies and marketing cookies. 

On our cookie list we also include at the same time the parties that are linked to the cookie and so receive data from you. In this way, it is immediately clear whether the cookie has been placed by us (first party or internal cookies) or by an external or third party. Third party cookies are cookies from a domain other than the website that you are on – they are used for marketing or advertising purposes. 

We cannot influence how the recipients process the information from these cookies. For further information, we refer you to the privacy statements of these parties. However, we have no influence on their privacy statement, or on the content of the cookies of these parties.

  • Essential cookies (always active)

They are there for example to navigate through the pages, to record the privacy settings or to screen off access to the secure sections of our website. We never make use of the data that we collect with them for other purposes, and we do not pass them on to third parties.

Google saves the data gathered by the cookies on its servers. In the settings, we have selected the option ‘Europe West’, so that the data should remain within the EEA, but as this is a US player, data may go outside the EEA.
