What Are 'Cookies'?

Cookies are small files with pieces of information, normally consisting of just letters and numbers, which websites place on your computer or mobile device when users visit them. 

Software on the user's devices (for example, a web browser) can store cookies and send them back to the website the next time they visit, to make a specific function of the website work and to provide information about the user’s activities on the website.

How Are Cookies Used?

Cookies are used in numerous ways. For example, when analyzing traffic to a website or tracking users’ browsing behavior.

Cookies are widely used because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device. Cookies and other similar technologies help websites to remember the visitors and their activities, for example, if they are logged in or if they added a product to the online shopping cart.

What Are Session and Persistent Cookies?

"Session Cookies" are limited to the duration of you visit to the relevant website or application and are removed from your computer once you close your browser session.

"Persistent Cookies" will remain stored on your computer or device until deleted or until they reach their expiry date. 

A user can delete previously set persistent cookies manually or configure the browser settings to delete cookies, as further described below.

What Are First-party and Third-party Cookies?

"First-party cookies" are set directly by the website that the user is visiting. For the purpose of this Policy, these are cookies that are set directly by this Website.

"Third-party cookies" are set by a domain other than the one visited by the user. For the purpose of this Policy, these are cookies that are set by service providers of this Website.

What Are Similar Technologies?

Similar Technologies are functions usually performed by a cookie can be achieved by other means. This could include, for example, using certain characteristics to identify devices so that visits to a website can be analyzed.

Any technology that stores or accesses information on the user’s device is relevant for this purpose, and therefore it includes, for example, HTML5 local storage, Local Shared Objects and fingerprinting techniques.

Additionally, technologies like scripts, tracking pixels and plugins, wherever these are used – are also considered as similar technologies. For example, many companies conduct electronic marketing and incorporate a tracking pixel in email messages. The pixels record information including the time, location and operating system of the device used to read the email.
