The website uses the Piwik to analyse its traffic. You can check which cookies it keeps here.
They enable us to remember each part of your purchase as you go through the site, remember your customer details. Cookies can only store text which is always anonymous and usually encrypted. EFEO will never keep any personal data in a cookie.
Cookies are secure, they can only store the information that is put at the disposal by the browser, which is information the user has entered into the browser or that is included in the page request.
There are two different types of cookies whose uses and contents are different: session and persistent.
Session cookies contain information used within your current browser session. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Nothing is persisted on your device once you have ended the browsing. Persistent cookies are used to hold information that is used between visits. This data allows sites to recognize that you are a returning customer and react accordingly. Persistent cookies have a lifetime value that is set by the website, which can vary between a few minutes or several years.
Cookies are used by the website to keep your session as you progress through the site, keeping track of your order details and whether you’ve logged in.
We also work with partners who will write third party cookies which are then used by advertisers on other sites to give you appropriate and relevant adverts based on your browsing history. These cookies do not store personal information enabling other sites to identify you, they are based purely on the browsing history.
All web browsers allow you to limit cookie behavior or turn off cookies within the settings or options of the browser. The steps to do this are different for each browser, you can find instructions under the Help menu of your browser or go directly to the "options", "private" or "history" sections of your browser. Through your browser you can also view the cookies that are on your computer, and delete individual ones, or purge them all.
Cookies are just text files so you can open them and read the contents. The data within them is often encrypted, or a numerical key corresponding to a web session so they often don’t make sense to anything other than the website that wrote it. If you turn off cookies, the website will not be able to create a reservation. Disabling cookies will also affect the monitoring of your progress through the website, but will not stop the analytics code from recognizing your visit.
The session cookies that EFEO writes includes data used by the web server hardware about which server is processing your session, your authentication status (in relation of the website customer database) and the details of your order.
The persistent cookies are used to recognize traffic to the website that is returning users rather than new customers. The information that is stored is used to serve you appropriate adverts on other websites on our behalf. Deleting these cookies won’t affect your experience or the functionality of the website.
