At Flyte, we want to be open and transparent in the way we use cookies and what this means for you. Some of the cookies we use are essential for the functionality of our website but there are also cookies that you can opt out of or block.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file saved on your computer or mobile device. It has a unique ID assigned to your device and enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as location, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time. That way, you don't have to keep re-entering the information whenever you come back to the website or browse from one page to another. Cookies can also help customize your browsing experience.

Not all cookies contain personal information but where they do, we will treat this information as personal data in accordance with our contact page. We also treat cookie information as personal data where it is associated with your account or other contact information.

 

Types of cookies

There are two broad categories of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device until deleted manually or automatically. Session cookies remain on your device until you close your browser and are thereby automatically deleted.
