What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer. Cookies can contain text and numbers such as dates. Cookies are not programs and do not contain viruses or malicious codes. They are designed to store specific information about the users on a website so that the website can recognize the user at a later date and load the stored information again. For example, login information, information about previous visits, and about which parts of the website the user has visited.
A cookie can only be loaded from the URL address where it is stored in. However, a website may also contain fragments and information downloaded from different addresses than those displayed in the browser’s address bar. For example, it may be a banner or an analytics tool, but also plain content. In this way, cookies can also be saved from other addresses via the website you have actually visited – so-called third-party cookies.
Session cookies are only saved in one browsing session and deleted when the browser closes. Other cookies (so-called persistent cookies) are stored for a certain period of time and will not be deleted before the time has elapsed.
Refusal of cookies
You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings in your browser (see Help in your browser for information on what to do). You should be aware that this might affect your browsing experience. In fact, if you reject cookies, some of the features on the webpage might not work. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not reject cookies.
