Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored in your web browser by most websites you visit. They, for instance, allow the websites you visit (or third-parties) to recognize you as a visitor (but not as an individual), collect analytical data and improve their services and user experience.
Cookies can be divided into two groups: "persistent cookies" and "session cookies". Persistent cookies are saved to the disk and kept there until they expire (depending on their predetermined duration) or until you manually delete them. Session cookies are stored only in memory for the duration of your visit and are therefore deleted as soon as you leave the website (close the browser) and therefore terminate your "session".
Cookies can also be either "first-party" or "third-party". First-party cookies are stored in your browser directly by the website you visit, while third-party cookies are stored by third-party subjects or services, such as advertising platforms, analytics solutions implemented by the website you visit etc.
Cookies can be used for a large number of purposes. In the context of what they are used for, cookies can be divided into four categories:
You can see the cookies We use in the table below, together with their brief descriptions and categorization. Please note that this table contains both First-party and Third-party cookies. You can find more information about the Third-party cookies in a dedicated section under the table.
