Not the crispy ones in your lunch box… in the IT jargon, cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are stored in your computer’s hard drive. They help us understand, how and when pages in our FAIR CARBON website are visited. FAIR CARBON will always ask your permission before storing cookies on your computer’s hard drive. Note that your permission might be saved in your cookies, so we don’t need to request it in case of multiple visits. FAIR CARBON cookies do not collect personal data, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information.
We recommend that you accept FAIR CARBON’s cookies to make full use of FAIR CARBON services. Our system will ask you to accept cookies from FAIR CARBON so that it remembers you. We recommend that you agree to this. It is safe. However, you may decide not to – or you may change your decision at any stage.
