Users can access this Cookie Policy to determine whether they consent to the use of cookies and similar technologies by our third party partners for advertising and content personalisation, measurement and analytics purposes.

Our Cookie Notice details all relevant information regarding the use of cookies, web beacons and similar technologies in connection to FairArt's websites, applications, services, products and tools (hereinafter: "Services") and your choice options in this regard. This Cookie Notice shall be read in conjunction with our Privacy Policy. This Cookie Policy is applicable regardless of how you access and make use of our Services including the access via mobile devices and apps.

Information regarding the technologies we use

1) What are cookies, web beacons and similar technologies?

a) Cookies

Cookies are small text files which are placed in the memory of your browser or device when you make use of our Services, in particular when you visit our websites or when you open a message. Cookies allow for a recognition of a specific device or browser. There are different types of cookies:

  • Session cookies expire at the end of your session (e.g., when closing your browser window) and only allow tracking your activities during this session
  • Persistent cookies remain stored on your device between sessions and allow, for example, to track your settings or activities on several websites
  • First party cookies are set by the provider whose online service you are using (i.e., FairArt)
  • Third party cookies are set by a provider other than the provider whose online service you are using (e.g., Stripe)

b) Web beacons

Web beacons (also known as pixel tags or clear GIFs) are small graphic images that are used in connection with the provision of our Services and which typically work in conjunction with cookies to track the use of an online service by its users. For example, when we send you emails, web beacons allow us to track if you opened the emails and clicked links to measure campaign performance and improve features.

c) Similar technologies

Similar technologies include local shared objects or local storage, such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies and other web application software methods, all of which store information in your browser or device to track your activity. Additionally, there are other technologies that function without local storage in your end device and instead make, for example, use of browser functions. In this context, a "fingerprint" of your system is created that serves as a unique identifier.


These technologies may function across all your browsers and in some cases are not fully managed by your browser, but may need to be managed directly from your installed applications or your device.

When you use our Services, we and authorised third party providers make use of cookies and similar technologies (which we will refer to collectively as "cookies"). We make use of two main types of cookies: those which will not be saved on your device or which will only be saved on your device for as long as your browser is active (called session cookies); and those which will be saved on your device for a longer period (called persistent cookies). We take appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorised access to our cookies.

The cookies used in connection with the Services have various functions:

  • They may be (technically) necessary for the provision of our Services
  • They help us to technically enhance our Services (e.g. monitoring of error messages and loading times)
  • They help us to recognise you so we can improve your user experience (e.g., by saving the font size and data entered into webforms)
  • They enable us to show you more relevant products


Some of our Services can only be offered using cookies. In general, these technologies enable us to track your user behaviour and identify you, to understand what purchases members and visitors are interested in, to make FairArt's Site and App function for you, and to help your browsing experience and use of the Site and App feel more customised - even across devices. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for more information about the personal data that we collect.

More generally, FairArt uses cookie technologies for the following purposes:

Security and Authentication (Strictly Necessary)

These cookies and similar technologies are essential to make our Site work. This includes ensuring that FairArt works properly for visitors and users, such as by maintaining the security, safety, and integrity of the Site, enabling our authentication and log-in processes (including remembering permissions and consents you have granted previously), and ensuring the ability to securely complete transactions.

Account and User Preferences

Some technologies are used to remember your account and preferences over time, such as keeping yourself logged in when returning to FairArt, maintaining your choices on FairArt features and how you want FairArt to appear (including keeping track of your preferred language and country), and customising content that you see on our Site based on how you use FairArt.

Social Networks

In order to enhance your internet experience and to make the sharing of content easier, some of the pages on our Site may contain tools or applications that are linked to third party social media service providers such as Instagram or Twitter. Through these tools or applications the social media service provider may set its own cookies on your device. We do not control these settings and you should check the social media service provider's website for further details about how they use such technologies.

Social networks may also work with FairArt or with you for analytics or for marketing purposes, as summarised below. You may be able to manage your privacy preferences for these social networks and their tools and widgets via your account with the social network.

Performance and Analytics

These cookies collect information about how people are using our Site, data on Site functionality (how the Site are working and if they are working properly) and speed to help us optimise FairArt, how our services are used to help us improve your experience on FairArt, and detecting and gathering reporting on bugs to help make FairArt work better. In addition, FairArt may use technologies, including cookies or local stored objects, for Site performance, experiments, form information, and interactions with the Site, and may use temporary, short-term cookies for limited-time Site events such as sales and promotions.

These technologies don't gather information that identifies you. All information these technologies collect is grouped together with information from other people's use of our Site on an anonymous basis. Overall, these technologies provide us with analytical information about how our App and Site are performing and how we can improve them.

The Site uses Google Analytics and other third party tools to help understand how FairArt is used by its community. For some of the advertising features, data from Google Analytics may be combined with FairArt's first-party data (data FairArt collects itself) and third-party cookies (like Google's advertising cookies) as permitted by Google's and FairArt's respective policies.

You can find more information on how Google Analytics works and how to opt out in this Google guide here

Marketing services

FairArt partners with third-party service providers that may use various cookie technologies to permit us and them to learn about which ads you see and click when you visit the Site, and related sites or to show you ads on and off FairArt. These may include things such as:

  • Frequency capping, which limits the number of times a user's browser or mobile device displays the same ad.
  • Attribution tracking, which estimates which advertising or marketing source brought someone to FairArt, or determines which marketing source led to actions like a visit or a purchase.
  • Remarketing and retargeting, which shows relevant ads to an audience (group of individuals) based on past shopping and browsing activity on FairArt.
  • Audience targeting, which is targeting advertisements to a large audience (group of individuals) based on the audience's known or inferred demographics, such as age and gender.
  • Cross-device recognition, which recognises actions by the same user across multiple devices or browsers.

Some third-party service providers may provide information like demographics, cross-device information, or interest categories from a combination of sources that, while not identifying you personally, allow us to provide you with more relevant and useful advertising. In some cases, this information may be used for non-marketing performance analytics as well.

These technologies may allow a third-party service provider to recognise your computer, mobile device or network device each time you visit FairArt or other websites and mobile applications based on data like a cookie, your IP address, or device ID, but do not allow access to other personal information from FairArt. However, these technologies may allow us or a third party to recognise you, either from a single device or across devices, over time. These third parties are required to comply with applicable laws, self-regulatory programmes, and any contractual terms in place with FairArt, where applicable. FairArt does not have control over these third parties, who each have their own privacy policies and privacy practices.

For audience targeting, FairArt may share hashed identifiers (information that has been changed or “hashed” from its original format) that represent an email address or name with partners such as Google so they can provide FairArt with audiences (groups of individuals) interested in specific types of products and services. Google will only provide this information, and can only identify you, based on their separate policies and agreements with their users.

Your Choices

Your choice options for the use of cookies relating to our Services will depend on the purposes for which we use these technologies.

If you wish to deactivate the use of any cookies - including cookies that are necessary for the provision of our Services or performance-related, you may do so by using the settings in your browser or device, if this is supported by your browser or device. The settings must be made separately for each browser you use. You can manage your browser-based cookies by adjusting your device browser settings (e.g., Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari).

Please note that you may not be able to use certain FairArt services when you deactivate cookies. You may also need to enter your password more frequently during your browser sessions.
