Types of cookies

Cookies can be roughly differentiated by certain criteria.

Firstly, we can distinguish cookies in regards to their “publisher”:

  2. “Third party” cookies are cookies designed and “published” by providers other than the provider of this website.

Please note that we cannot influence or control third-party cookies that are already on your computer at the time of visiting our website, nor do we have the ability to know what information such cookies collect. We recommend that you inform yourself about potential dangers at

Secondly, cookies can be distinguished by how long the cookie remains (“duration”) on the user’s device after leaving the website/app:

  1. Temporary or “session” cookies are removed for the user’s device after the browser has been closed. Websites and apps use these cookies to store temporary data such as e.g. items in a shopping cart.
  2. Persistent cookies remain on your device after you close your internet browser. Websites use them to save certain pertinent data such as e.g. username and/or password, the language you chose to use during your first visit etc. These cookies may remain on your device for days, months and even years or until they are deleted by the user.

Thirdly, cookies can be distinguished based on their category and/or purpose:

  1. Essential cookies are cookies that allow the user usage of basic website functions. They are usually “first party” cookies and are usually temporary “session” cookies. Blocking these cookies may significantly decrease website functionality. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet. These cookies do not identify you as an individual.
  2. Analytical/Performance cookies collect data for statistical purposes on how visitors use a website; (e.g. gathering data about visits to the website, including numbers of visitors and visits, length of time spent on the website, pages clicked on or where visitors have come from. They don’t contain personal information such as names and email addresses, and are used to improve your user experience of a website. These cookies do not identify you as an individual.
  3. Functional cookies allow users to customize how a website looks for them: they can remember usernames, language preferences and regions, and can be used to provide more personal services like local weather reports and traffic news. The information these cookies collect may include personal data that you have disclosed.
  4. Targeting cookies or advertising cookies record your visits to particular websites, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. They are usually used to deliver advertisements more relevant to you, but can also limit the number of times you see an advertisement, and be used to chart the effectiveness of an ad campaign by tracking users’ clicks. Most types of these cookies track consumers via their Device ID or IP address and therefore they may collect personal data, including your online behaviour.
