What are cookies?

A "cookie" is a small text file that is placed and stored on your computer, smartphone or other device or in browsers by websites or applications that you access. Cookies transmit small amounts of data about your device to our web server. They enable websites to recognize your computer, smartphone or other device when you browse the internet. Tracking pixels, pixels, JavaScript and other tracking technologies also use cookies, invisible images or invisible codes that collect data about a user's visit to the website in a similar way to cookies.  Depending on how long a cookie remains stored, we may refer to cookies as session cookies or persistent cookies:

 

Session cookies

A session cookie is deleted when you close the website in question. A session cookie allows a website to recognize you while you browse the website, but the cookie is deleted when you log out or close the website in your browser. For example, a cookie may be used to enable features such as a shopping cart. The cookie stores the products you add to your shopping cart as you browse the website for more products.

 

Permanent cookies

A persistent cookie recognizes you again and again for a set period of time. It remains stored on your device or in your browser for this period (which can be minutes, days, or months) after you have logged out or closed the browser. Persistent cookies are used, for example, to store certain settings you have made on a website (such as your preferred language).
