Cookies policy


Introduction

This policy applies to the company “Grecian Magnesite Mining Industrial Shipping and Commercial S.A.” hereinafter referred to as “Grecian Magnesite”.
Grecian Magnesite is committed to protecting the personal information we collect when you use our website and other services. This Cookies Policy explains what cookies are, how “Grecian Magnesite” uses cookies and similar technologies on their websites and what you can do to manage how cookies are used.

Use of Cookies

To make this site work properly, we might place small data files called cookies on your device, but none of them are not being used to gather information unnecessarily. The cookies we use do not store personally identifiable information nor can they harm your computer. We want our website to be informative and as user-friendly as possible, and cookies help us to achieve that goal.

Consent

Grecian Magnesite is dedicated to appropriately inform everyone about the use of cookies in its website and receive unambiguous consent.
By using our website, you agree to the use of cookies as set out in this policy. We appreciate some visitors may like more individual control over their visit to our website and can adjust their settings accordingly. You can read all about this in the section below "How to block and delete cookies". If you do not agree to such use, please refrain from using the website.

About Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.
Websites mainly use cookies to:

  • identify users,
  • remember users' custom preferences,
  • help users complete tasks without having to re enter information when browsing from one page to another or when visiting the site later.

Cookies can also be used for online behavioral target advertising and to show adverts relevant to something that the user searched for in the past.
How are they used?
The web server supplying the webpage can store a cookie on the user's computer or mobile device. An external web server that manages files included or referenced in the webpage is also able to store cookies. All these cookies are called http header cookies. Another way of storing cookies is through JavaScript code contained or referenced in that page.
Each time the user requests a new page, the web server can receive the values of the cookies it previously set and return the page with content relating to these values. Similarly, JavaScript code is able to read a cookie belonging to its domain and perform an action accordingly.
What are the different types of cookies?
A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs. By lifespan, a cookie is either a:

  • session cookie which is erased when the user closes the browser or
  • persistent cookie which remains on the user's computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.

As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:

  • first-party cookies which are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain
  • third-party cookies stored by a different domain to the visited page's domain. This can happen when the webpage references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside its domain.
