2. WHAT IS A COOKIE?

  • A cookie is a collection of data in an industry standard that a web page transfers to your computer temporarily to allow content to be tailored to the user. To this end, cookies collect information about your online behaviour.
  • A cookie is a small file containing a text string of letters and numbers (information), often encoded, that uniquely identifies your computer, mobile device or other equipment of a user from which the Internet is accessed, but may also contain other information. A cookie consists of two parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Furthermore, the duration of existence of a cookie is determined.
  • A cookie is a file that is placed/downloaded on the device you are using when you access a website, by a request issued by the web server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome), which enables the use of our website functionalities by recording your navigation of the website, so that when you access the website again, it can present tailored options based on the information stored about your last visit.
  • A cookie is completely “passive” (it does not contain software, viruses – cookies use plain text formats, are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or auto-run; they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate again – or spyware and cannot access information on the user’s hard drive), they only allow the collection of information about user behaviour (basically which web pages they visit and when).
  • In other words, the cookie can be seen as an Internet user identification card that notifies the website each time the user returns to that website.

3. PURPOSE OF COOKIES

Cookies can be used to store information about the activities carried out by the user on a particular web page, so that the user can easily resume those activities on a subsequent visit to the website. Cookies tell the server which pages to show the user, so that the user does not have to remember this or navigate the whole website from the beginning. In this way, cookies can be likened to “bookmarks” that tell the user exactly where they left off within a website.

Similarly, cookies can store information about products ordered by the user on an e-commerce website, thus making the concept of a “shopping cart” and/or placing an order possible. We also use cookies for statistical and marketing purposes.

4. WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES DO WE USE?

We use the following types of cookies: [persistent and/or session cookies, our own cookies and/or third-party cookies].

Persistent cookies help us recognize you as an existing user, which makes it easier for you to return to our website or interact with our services. After you enter the website, a persistent cookie remains in your browser and will be read when you return to our website or a partner website using our services. Session cookies are only active for the duration of a session (usually a regular website visit or browser session).
