What are cookies?
Cookies are small files saved on the user’s data storage medium and serving for the user’s web browser to save particular settings and data for the exchange with our system. There are two kinds of cookies, the so-called session cookies, which are deleted after the web browser is closed by the user, and persistent cookies which are stored for a longer period of time or permanently on the user’s data storage medium. Thanks to the storing of those files, we can properly develop our websites and our offer according to the user’s preferences. It makes using the website easier for the user, for example by saving specific user data so that they do not need to enter them each time.
What cookies does FONDU use?
Most of the cookies we use are automatically deleted from the the hard drive of the user’s computer after the web browser session ends (so-called session cookies). For example, session cookies are used to offer the user the shopping bag function on many pages of the website. During the next visit, the website automatically recognises the user and the information and settings they prefer. The temporary and persistent cookies (storage period of 1 to 10 years) are saved on the hard drive of the user’s computer, and after a certain time period, they are automatically deleted. Those cookies are used to make our offer even more effective, safe, and more user-friendly. Thanks to those files, it is possible to show the user information suited to their interests. The only aim of the cookies is the best possible tailoring of our offer to the expectations of the client and thereby making it easier for them to use our website.
What data is saved in cookies?
Only pseudonymised data is saved in the cookies used by FONDU. During the activation of a cookie, it is assigned an identification number without the user’s personal data being assigned to this identification number. First and last name, IP address, or similar user data which allows for a direct assigning of a cookie to the user are not saved in the cookie. On the basis of the cookie technology, we obtain only pseudonymised information, for example: which pages of our shop the user has visited, which products they have viewed, etc.
Our websites use the so-called retargeting technology. We use this technology in order to be able to offer a more attractive online offer to the users. It enables showing the users who became interested in our shop and our products a suitable advertisement on the websites of our partners. We are convinced that displaying an advertisement that is personalised and related to the user’s interests is generally more attractive to them than an advertisement that does not have such an individual connection. Displaying those advertising materials on the websites of our partners is based on the cookie technology and analysis of the prior behaviour of the user. This form of advertisement is implemented fully anonymously.
Cookies which serve to collect, save, and use data related to the behaviour of the user are used during visits on our website. Moreover, user data contained in cookies is stored after the end of the web browser session and, for example, used during the next visit on the website.
How can I block the saving of cookies?
The web browser offers settings which enables accepting the saving of cookies only when the user agrees to it. In this way, it is possible to block the saving of cookies in the future. To accept the use of FONDU cookies, while at the same time preventing the use of third party companies’ cookies, the option “Blocking of third-party cookies” needs to be selected in the web browser settings.
As a rule, it is possible to obtain information as to rejecting new and switching off saved cookies via the help function on the menu bar of the web browser.
4. Web analysis
In order to continuously optimise and perfect our offer, we use the so-called tracking technologies. To this end, we use Google Analytics services.
4.1 Google Analytics
This website uses the Google (Universal) Analytics online web analytics tool by Google Inc. (www.google.pl).

Information regarding the visits on this websites generated in this way are, as a rule, transferred to Google’s server in the USA and saved there. In the case of the activation of the IP address anonymisation function on this website, the user’s IP address is shortened by Google before its transfer on the territory of the European Union Member States or other states signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in extraordinary situations is the full IP address transferred to Google’s server in the USA and shortened there. The anonymised IP address sent by the user’s web browser as part of the Google Analytics service is not combined with other Google data. The user can avoid the sending of data generated by the cookie and regarding the user’s use of the website (together with the IP address) to Google and the processing of that data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following address: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=pl
