What are cookies?
Cookies are files or pieces of information stored on your Internet enabled devices when you visit the Website. Cookies enable our systems to recognize your device, enable interest-based advertisements, and store items in your shopping cart basket. A cookie will usually contain the name of the originating website from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., how long the cookie will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.

All websites use cookies, and they have several functions. Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and identify users returning to a website. Cookies do not contain any information that can directly identify you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. Two common types of cookies are “session cookies” and “persistent cookies.” Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your browsing session. Persistent cookies remain longer on your device, for the duration of each specific cookie, and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date).

For what purposes does FedEx Cross Border use cookies?
Certain cookies on the Website perform essential functions or services you have requested or for security purposes, as further described in the table below. Others remember your preferences, and help ensure that the marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.

We also use cookies to make the Website easier to use and to better tailor our Website and our products to your interests and needs. Cookies may also be used to help speed up your future activities and experience on the Website. We also use cookies to compile statistics that allow us to understand how users use the Website and to help us improve the structure and content of our Website (for example, by monitoring which features of the Website are being used, which pages are visited, how often, and what information is downloaded).

In addition, we work closely with online merchants who use our Website to provide their international shopping cart functionality. If you arrived at one of our Websites through a third party retailer or other FedEx Cross Border client or affiliate (the “Retailer”), that Retailer may set a cookie and collect information from you. The Retailers are located in the United States or other countries that may not be considered adequate by data protection authorities in your home country. Before proceeding with your transaction, read the Retailer’s Privacy Policy to understand what information it collections and how it processes or discloses your information. This policy does not apply to any Retailer websites accessible through our Websites.
