WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website with the same terminal device, the cookie and the information in it are either sent back to the originating website (First-party cookie) or to another website to which it belongs (Third-party cookie). By that, the website can detect that it has already been opened using this browser, and in some cases it will then vary the content it shows.
Some cookies are extremely useful because they can improve your user experience when you return to a website you have already visited. This assumes that you are using the same terminal device and the same browser as before; if so, cookies will remember your preferences, will know how you use the website, and will adapt the content you are shown so that it is more relevant to your personal interests and needs.
TFS only uses functional (or necessary) cookies that are required for the site to function, including those that are necessary for Google Analytics to work. We analyse the use of this website to measure the audience but it is de-identified/anonymized data and therefore we do not know who you are. We store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other types of cookies we need your permission. This site uses Functional and Analytical types of cookies. Some cookies may be placed by third party services that appear on our pages.
