Cookies are files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to the device you use when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies do lots of different and useful jobs, such as remembering your preferences, and generally improving your online experience.

There are different types of cookies. They all work in the same way but have minor differences. Fitnessgenes.com uses three kinds of cookie:

  1. Session cookies. If you have an account on Fitnessgenes.com, logging in will place a cookie on your computer. It is not possible to opt-out of this kind of cookie, because it is essential to the operation of the website. If you disable cookies in your browser, it will not be possible to log in. Under EU law this qualifies as a cookie that is “strictly necessary for a service requested by a user”.
  2. Analytics cookies. We (or our third-party service providers) may use analytics cookies to gather aggregated or segmented information about visitors to our site, so we can see how effective and relevant our adverts are. That information can include what web pages and adverts you viewed, what referring/exit pages you arrived and left from, which platform you used, how you interacted with our platform, what search criteria you used and which emails you opened and acted upon. We do not use this information to personally identify you. Any such analytics statistics are anonymous – if you visit this page while logged in, all we know is that one more visitor visited the “cookie policy” page. We don’t know that it was you. More information and instructions on how to opt-out can be found here: http://cookiestatement.eu/.
  3. Re-marketing cookies. We utilise pay per click services and a re-marketing feature to allow us to reach people that have previously visited our website. This means that information concerning what pages you have viewed on our website is provided to Google. Google use this information so that when you visit the websites of third parties you may notice advertisements for our products which are or may relate to products you have viewed on our website. You may opt-out of Google’s use of such cookies by visiting Google’s advertising settings, or you may opt-out of the use of third party advertiser’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.
