EU regulations specify that website owners need to inform visitors of the way in which cookies are used.
Cookies are bits of information that are saved directly to the visitor's hard disk or the memory of their PC/tablet/smartphone by their web browser. They are important for the correct functioning of a website.
A small file is stored by your internet browser on the first visit to a website. On repeat visits to this website using the same device, the cookie and all information stored therein is sent back to the website where it originated (first party cookie) or transmitted to a different website which it belongs to (third party cookie).
Depending on the nature of their function and purpose, cookies are divided into four categories:
Duration of data storage depends on the importance of a functionality:
The duration of storage can therefore range anywhere from a few seconds to several years. However, as an internet user you have the opportunity to determine your browser's (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, Iron, etc.) settings for cookies on your system at any time.
You can also specify that you will be asked every time a website tries to save a cookie to your computer. It is actually very simple to delete cookies your browser has already saved to your device. However, since the procedure varies from browser to browser, we recommend the Help function of your browser for details about the necessary steps.
In addition, many browsers offer so-called "trackless" browsing (Private Browsing, InPrivate Browsing, Incognito mode, private surfing). This means that all temporary files (such as cookies) are automatically cleared from your browser after you have concluded your visit to a website.
