Please refer to the Help section of your web browser for information about cookie settings, changing the settings and deleting cookies.
Below is a list showing the most common types of cookies and what they are used for.
2.1. Session cookies
While you are using a website, a session cookie is temporarily stored in your computer’s memory; this is done by a session ID being stored so that, for example, you do not have to log in again every time you change page. Session cookies are deleted when you log off or expire as soon as your session ends automatically.
2.2. Permanent or persistent cookies
A permanent or persistent cookie stores a file on your computer for a fixed period of time until its expiration date. Using these cookies, websites remember your information and settings on your next visit. This makes access to the websites faster and more user-friendly, for example because you do not have to configure your language setting for our portal again. When the expiration date is reached, the cookie is deleted automatically when you visit the website that generated it.
2.3. First-party cookies
These are placed by the website itself (same domain as in the browser address bar) and can only be read by that particular website. These cookies are usually used to store information (for example, your settings) that will be used on your next visit to the website.
2.4. Third-party cookies
Third-party cookies come from different parties to the website’s operator. They can be used to collect information for advertising, user-defined content and web statistics, for example.
