What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file, located in browser directories. They are created when a user’s browser loads a particular website; the website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file. Every time the user return to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this file to the website’s server. Cookies can be either first-party cookie, placed by the website that is being loaded or third-party cookie created also by websites that run ads, widgets or other elements on the page that is being loaded.



What is the purpose of the cookies?

Cookies can be used to help authenticate users who log in a secure area of the website, by storing login information thus allowing the user to leave the website and re-enter without having to fill the authentication form again.

Session cookies are also used by the server to store information about user page activities and act as a sort of bookmark within the website. They are temporary files, erased when you close the browser; when a user re-open the browser and go back to the site that created the cookie, the website will not recognise him. For more information on session cookies, check

Persistent or tracking cookies are used to store user preferences and enable a website to remember them on subsequent visits. Authentication cookies or language selection cookies are examples of persistent cookies. How long a persistent cookie remain on the browser depends on how long the visited website has programmed it to last. For more information on persistent cookies, check


How can I control or delete cookies?

It is possible to consult a website without activating cookies, although certain functions of the website may be restricted. Beware though that most browsers are set to accept cookies by default.

The user can check which cookies are used on a certain website, which website is creating them, how long will they last and block them (partially or completely). The procedures are slightly different depending on the browser; please refer to the following instructions to know more about cookies preferences.


Which types of Cookies are used in this website?

FISNEC Project website uses first-party cookies set by site builder, and third-party cookies by google analytics.













Google Analytics
