General information

What is a Cookie?

Are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while the user is browsing that website. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the website of the user's previous activity.

During the navigation, even cookies sent from different sites can be set (so-called third party), cookies which may reside on some elements on the same site (elements such as images, maps, music, links to specific pages in other domains).

Cookies, usually found in users browser in very large number and sometimes with characteristics of large persistence time, are used for different purposes: authentication, monitoring sessions, storing information about specific configurations concerning users who access a web server, generally they are used to improve your browsing experience.

Depending on their purpose, cookies can be divided into four categories: session cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies and marketing cookies.

Session cookies

Are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, some services cannot be provided – for example, remembering previous actions (e.g. entered text) when navigating back to a page in the same session.

Performance cookies

Gather information about how a website is used – for example, which pages a visitor opens most often, and whether the user receives error messages from some pages. These cookies do not save information that would allow the user to be identified. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website, and with it the user experience.

Functional cookies

Enable a website to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, languages choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalised functions. For example, a website can offer you local, price-relevant tax information if it uses a cookie to remember the region in which you are currently located. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.

Marketing cookies

Are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They remember whether you have visited a website or not, and this information can be shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Cookies for improving group targeting and advertising will often be linked to site functionality provided by other organisations.
