What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are commonly used to make websites work – or work more efficiently, as well as providing web services and functionalities to users. Under applicable law cookies may be stores or accessed solely on your device based on your consent, except for cookies strictly necessary to provide the services on the website.
What types of cookies are there?
Cookies can either be permanent cookies or session cookies. A permanent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser that is stored by the browser and remains valid until the expiration date set (unless the user has deleted it before the expiration date). On the other hand, a session cookie will expire at the end of the user session when the web browser is closed. The purpose of using the different cookies is described below in this policy for cookies.
