This Cookie policy informs you how Fiskars Finland Oy Ab and its affiliates (together “Fiskars”) uses Cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies (jointly referred to as “Cookies”) in its websites and how you can manage and control the use of Cookies on your computer or device.

Please visit our Privacy Policy for more information on how we use and manage the personal data we collect.


What are Cookies?

Cookies are small files, typically of letters and numbers, placed on your computer or device by a web server when you access certain websites. Cookies are stored on your computer’s hard drive when you browse our sites.


What Cookies do we use and why are they used?

We use functional Cookies to ensure the functionality of our website. These Cookies enable you to browse our site on selected language, enable the website to remember your login information and remembers other selections done by you during your visit on our website (such as, the things you put in your shopping cart).

We do also want to develop our platform, our online stores and other services we offer to you. This is why we use performance Cookies on our websites. These Cookies collect information which we use for reporting and analytics, such as how you use our website and how often you visit the website.

Development related Cookies can be either first party provided (our own Cookies which, e.g. estimate the visitor numbers) or third party analytics Cookies, such as Google Analytics and Facebook, who use the cookie data for analytics services and for example, help us track the user engagement on our websites. For more information on Google Analytics, visit Google’s information page.

We do also use certain social media plugins on our site which place Social Media and Content Cookies, for example, to enable you to “Like” something on Facebook, or play Instagram videos directly on our website, or link your cv to us directly from LinkedIn. Please note that some of these third-party services place Cookies that are also used for things like behavioural advertising, analytics, or market research.

We also recommend that you familiarize yourself with the policies of the social media platforms you use.

Additionally, we use advertising Cookies on our website. These Cookies help us to tailor marketing to you and your interests and provide you with a more personalized service in the future. These Cookies remember that you visited our website and we may share this information with third parties, such as advertisers so that you may see our advertisements on other sites as well. Without these Cookies, the advertisements that you see may be less relevant and interesting to you.

Please note that certain third parties, such as Facebook, may use another third party to track the activities on our websites, and offer targeted advertising based on that. We also recommend that you familiarize yourself with Facebook’s policies which concern the use of your personal data.


How do we use Cookies to personalize the marketing messages?

We strive to provide you with the best possible user experience on our website and to show you only content which feels relevant to you. In order for us to do that we use Cookies on our online channels and our partners’ online channels to follow activities in online services. This enables us to collect information for example on your preferences, based on which we can customize the marketing communications we provide you.

Please note that even if you have chosen to opt-out from the personalized marketing, you may still see advertising by different Fiskars Group brands around the internet. In this case we haven’t personalized the advertising based on your data.


How long do Cookies remain on my computer or mobile device?

We do use two types of Cookies: Persistent and Session Cookies. Session Cookies last until you stop browsing and Persistent Cookies last until their expiration or deletion. Most of the used Cookies are Persistent, and they are not removed once you close your browser or exit our website. Persistent Cookies are used when information is preferred to be stored for more than one website visit.


How can I control Cookies?

After selecting your preferred cookies, you may always also change your preference by visiting the "Cookie Settings" at the bottom of our page.
