5. Use of cookies

5.1 What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text or data file that we store in your browser or on the hard disc of your computer. This allows us to remember your preferences when you use our website. Unless you have modified your browser settings to decline the use of cookies, our system will place these cookies as soon as you visit our website.

5.2 Different types of cookies

Cookies can be subdivided according to their origin, function and life span.

  • First-party cookies are those cookies that we have stored on the domain. They make our website function properly and raise the quality of our services.
  • Third-party cookies are cookies that are stored by a domain name other than the one of the websites visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a third party stores a cookie by way of such website, said cookie is a third-party cookie. For cookies stored by third parties, we would like to refer you to the statements that such parties provide on their respective websites about this. Please note we cannot exercise any influence whatsoever on the content of such statements, nor on the content of the cookies of said third parties. These anonymous cookies serve to improve your user experience and make it more personal.

We can further subdivide the first-party and third-party cookies into the following, for example:

  • Functional cookies are cookies that ensure that our website functions properly. They contain information regarding your options and preferences on our website (e.g. cookies to remember your credentials & language preferences). Functional cookies are, of course, first-party cookies.
  • Non-functional cookies are cookies that can be stored for statistical, social, targeting and commercial purposes. They have nothing to do with the mere technical support of the website.

Non-functional cookies can be first-party or third-party cookies.

  • Cookies for statistical purposes make it possible to see which pages of the website you visit, where your computer is located, etc. (Google analytics, Google tag manager and Hotjar).

  • Permanent cookies: These cookies remain on the user’s device for the duration specified in the cookie. They are activated every time the user visits the website that stored such cookie (e.g. cookies stored by social media such as Facebook, Google Analytics, etc.). Most of the non- functional cookies are permanent cookies.
  • Session cookies: These cookies enable us to simplify a user’s actions and to link them to one another during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens a browser screen and ends when the browser screen is closed. Session cookies are stored temporarily. All session cookies are removed as soon as you close the browser. Most of the functional cookies are session cookies.
