1. What is a cookie?
2. Types of cookies
There are various types of cookies. Cookies can be classified according to their origin, function and duration.
First-party cookies are technical cookies that ensure that a website, application or platform functions properly. This enhances the quality of the services.
Third-party cookies are cookies placed by another domain name than that of our website or our platform. If a user visits the website and a third party places a cookie via their own website, this is a third-party cookie. For cookies placed by third parties, we refer you to the statements that these parties provide on their respective websites. Please note: we do not have an influence on the content of these statements or the content of the cookies of these third parties.
First-party and third-party cookies can be further divided into:
Essential or strictly necessary cookies (as their name suggests) are necessary in order to use a website or platform, provide certain features requested by you, and ensure safe identity verification;
Functional cookies are cookies that ensure the correct functioning of the website or platform. They store information about your choices and preferences on the website or platform (e.g. cookies for remembering login or registration, your language preference, or products in your shopping basket). Logically, functional cookies are first-party cookies.
- Non-functional cookies are cookies which may be placed for statistical, social, targeting and commercial purposes. They have nothing to do with the purely technical support of the website or platform. Non-functional cookies can be first-party or third-party cookies.
Cookies for statistical purposes allow us to determine which pages of the website or platform you visit, where your computer is located, etc. (Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Hotjar).
Cookies for social purposes allow the user to share the content of the website visited with others via social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube).
Cookies for targeting purposes allow us to create a profile based on your browsing behaviour, so that the ads shown are adapted to your interests (Facebook).
Cookies for commercial purposes record how many and what ads have been shown to the user (Google Adwords and Bing ads).
Cookies can also be broken down according to their lifespan:
Permanent cookies: These cookies remain present on the user's device for the duration defined in the cookie. They are activated every time the user visits the website or platform which placed this cookie (e.g. cookies placed by social media such as Facebook, Google Analytics, etc.). Most non-functional cookies are permanent cookies.
Session cookies: These cookies make it possible to simplify a user's actions and link them to each other during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser screen and ends when they close the browser screen. Session cookies are placed temporarily. As soon as you close the browser, all session cookies are removed. Most functional cookies are session cookies.
