The Fine Design Cookies Policy

The Fine Design uses cookies and similar tools across its websites to improve their performance and enhance the user experience. This policy explains how this is done. By using this website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to The Fine Design’s use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy.

About cookies:

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website to recognize your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term "cookies" in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyze how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.

Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to "remember me" when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies do not collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.

 

The Fine Design uses following types of cookies:

Essential cookies. Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to.

Performance Cookies. The Fine Design uses other cookies to monitor website performance and analyze how our visitors use our websites. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customizing our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website.

Functionality Cookies. We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customization preferences. We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online or comment on a blog.

Targeted or Advertising Cookies. The Fine Design and our advertisers occasionally use cookies to serve users with advertisements that we believe are relevant to you and your interests.
