Flightdelayclaimer respects your privacy and is committed to protect any personal information that you may submit through our website. The following information is designed to help you understand what information Flightdelayclaimer gathers from the website and how this information is handled. Please also read our Privacy Statement.

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small cookies on users’ devices. Most big websites do this too. By accessing, browsing and/or using our website, you acknowledge, without limitation or qualification, that you have read, understood and agreed to be subject to the terms and conditions of this policy, and therefore consent to our use of cookies in accordance with these terms.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. 

What are the different types of cookies?

A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs. By lifespan, a cookie is either a:

  • session cookie which is erased when you close the browser or
  • persistent cookie which remains on your computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.

As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:

  • first-party cookies which are set by Flightdelayclaimer or
  • third-party cookies stored by a different domain to the visited page’s domain. 

How do we use cookies?

We use our own cookies to remember your actions and custom preferences. We also use our own first-party cookies to help you complete tasks without having to re-enter information when browsing from one page to another or when you visit the site later.

We use third party cookies to improve your experience with digital analytics and real-time personalization. We also use third party cookies for online behavioral advertising and to show adverts relevant to something that you searched for in the past.
