As stated in our Privacy Policy, Samsung Food is the data controller of any personal data processed within the Samsung Food applications, including in relation to this service.

Cookies consist of portions of code installed in the browser that assist the Owner in providing the Service according to the purposes described. Some of the purposes for which Cookies are installed may also require the User’s consent.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

Additionally, we have partnerships with some carefully chosen third parties which involve including some code on our website, for example advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services so that we can enable you to share content with your friends or login via a social media account. In some cases, these partners may also store and retrieve their own Cookies on your computer. Cookies set by websites other than samsungfood.com are known as ‘Third Party Cookies’. We have no control over these Third Party Cookies and are not responsible for the same. These Third Party Cookies are likely to be analytical Cookies, performance Cookies or marketing Cookies.
