What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files sent to your computer or mobile device when you visit websites. Cookies help websites store and retrieve information about your browsing habits in order to tailor navigation to your preferences.
Types of Cookies
These cookies allow websites to remember information that may change the behaviour and appearance of the website, such as your preferred language or the region you are in. For example, by remembering your region, a website can provide you with local weather or traffic information. These cookies can also help you to change text size, font and other customisable parts of web pages. The loss of information stored in preference cookies may make the website experience less functional but should not prevent it from working.
Security cookies are used to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent usage of login credentials in addition to protecting data from unauthorised persons. For example, they enable the blocking of many types of attack, such as attempts to steal the content of the forms filled in on web pages.
Process cookies help the website function and provide the services that website visitors expect, such as navigating web pages or accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, the website cannot function properly.
These cookies are intended to make advertising more engaging for users and more valuable to advertisers and publishers. Some common cookie applications aim to target advertising based on what is of relevance to the user, to improve reporting on campaign performance and/or to avoid showing ads the user has already seen.
Session Status Cookies
Websites often collect information about how users interact with a particular web page. This can include which pages users visit most frequently and whether users receive error messages from certain pages. So-called session status cookies help to improve company services in order to enhance user browsing experiences. Blocking or deleting these cookies does not render the website unusable.
These cookies help website and application owners to understand the engagement of visitors with their web pages. They may use a number of cookies to collect information and report website usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors.
How to Manage Cookies
In most Internet browsers, these cookies can be easily removed or declined. You can change the level of permission by selecting the desired settings in your browser. You will also find more details about these procedures in the help section of the respective browser.
For further information on the processing of your data or for any clarification on data protection, you can contact our company through any of the channels detailed on our website.
