Type of cookies
- First-Party Cookies and Third-Party Cookies
The cookies that we send to your device through our site are called first-party cookies. First-party cookies are cookies that belong to the site that created them. The use of these cookies allows us to operate the Site efficiently and to track the behaviour patterns of visitors to the Site. We also allow third parties to send cookies to your device. The difference between a first-party cookie and a third-party cookie concerns the control by the person who sends the cookie. Although we allow third parties to access the Site to send cookies to the user’s device, we have no control over the information provided by the cookies and we do not have access to such data.
- Session Cookies and Persistent Cookies
Our Site may send session and persistent cookies to your device. While the difference between a first-party cookie and a third-party cookie concerns the subject who controls the initial sending of the cookie to your device, the difference between a session cookie and a persistent cookie concerns the different length of time that a cookie operates. Session cookies are cookies that typically last until you close your internet browser. When you finish your browser session, the cookie expires. Persistent cookies, as the name indicates, are constant cookies that continue to operate after you close your browser. This allows faster and easier access to our Site. For example, a persistent cookie that our Site reads from your device is the language chosen for navigation. After sending the cookie, this allows you to be redirected automatically to the site in your chosen language when you access the site in the future.
- Cookies and Other Technologies
Our Site can send you cookies and similar technologies in various ways and for different purposes. Typically, these serve, to simplify your use of our Site and our Services; to monitor, analyse and improve the functioning and efficiency of our Site and our Services.
