Types of cookies
Cookies can be valid at runtime or persistent and we differentiate between first-party and third-party cookies. Here we explain what these terms mean so that you can better understand what type of cookies we use and why we use them.
Session cookies allow you to be recognised during your visit to a website and thus allow the browser to remember any changes on the website or any selection you made on each page. These cookies allow you to browse quickly and easily through several pages of a website without having to identify yourself or repeat processes on each page you visit. Session cookies contain information that is stored in a temporary memory location which is deleted after you close your browser or when you leave the website.
Persistent cookies are stored ”persistently” on the computer for a certain period of time after the browsing process has expired, and therefore allow users’ preferences or actions to be remembered during subsequent visits to the website.
