What are cookies? 

Cookies are small text files stored on your digital device each time you visit a website. Cookies are used to make website users’ experiences more efficient and better. Cookies are also used to provide information about the user or device.

Is this too technical? No problem! Imagine going to a huge supermarket. There are so many products and aisles that it is almost impossible to remember where everything is. But now imagine having a friendly shopping assistant to help you every time you visit the store. This assistant remembers what products you bought last time or what you expressed interest in. That makes your shopping experience a lot easier and more personal, right?

In the digital world, a “cookie” is like a friendly shopping assistant. It is a small file that a website places on your computer, phone or tablet when you visit the site. The purpose of this little file is to “remember” you.


What does a cookie do? 

A cookie remembers information: Just like the shopping assistant from the example above, a cookie remembers things like what you put in your shopping cart, which pages you visited, whether you are already logged in, what language you like to continue in, and more.

A cookie provides personalization: Cookies help the website remember your preferences, such as the language you use or the currency you want to pay in. This way, you don’t have to set this again with every visit.

A cookie personalizes ads: Sometimes cookies are also used to see what you as a visitor are interested in, to then show ads that better match your interests.


Types of cookies

Temporary cookies: These cookies are deleted as soon as you close your browser. For example, they remember what you have placed in your shopping cart during your visit to a website. 

(Semi-)permanent cookies: These cookies remain on your device even after you close your browser. They ensure that your preferences from your previous session are immediately reset when you revisit the website, for example your language preference.

First-party cookies: These are cookies from our website itself, for example to remember your login status. For example, they ensure that you do not have to log in every time you visit a website. 

Third-party cookies: These are cookies from other parties and are often used for advertising purposes or analysis of website use.

Essential or necessary cookies: These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the website and cannot be disabled, for example for security measures.

Performance or analytical cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use the website, for example which pages they visit most often.

Functional cookies: These cookies remember choices you make on the website in order to improve your experience. For example, they remember your language preference. 

Advertising and marketing cookies: These cookies collect information to personalize ads and make them more relevant to your interests.
