When trying to understand cookies, it can help to know the following terminology.
Cookies installed on your device by the organisation running the website you are visiting are known as “first party” cookies.
Cookies installed on your device via the website you are visiting by another organisation are termed “third party” cookies. An example is a cookie set by a specialist website analytics company that provides the website owner with data on the numbers of people visiting its website (Cookies for range and usage analysis).
So-called “persistent cookies” remain on your device even after you close your internet browser. They are activated each time you visit the website that created that particular cookie. For example, where a “persistent cookie” is used on a website to remember your login details, you will not need to enter those details each time you visit that website (Functional and preference cookies).
“Session cookies”, by contrast, are temporary and are typically used to enable the website to operate, e.g. by permitting a user to move from page to page without having to log in again. Once you close your browser, all session cookies are deleted (Technically necessary cookies).
“Strictly Necessary Cookies” are cookies without which you would not be able to use this website. For example, Strictly Necessary Cookies adjust the website data transmitted to match your Internet connection, get you to the secure versions of the website, and help provide services you specifically request. If you set your browser to block these cookies, some parts of the website will not work. Strictly Necessary Cookies do not store any personal data.
“Functional cookies” allow the website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced functionality and more personalised features. Depending on context, Functional Cookies may store certain types of personal data as needed to provide functionality.
Moreover, “performance cookies” allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our website, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
This is the list of cookies used by our website:
|Cookie key||Used on||Domain||Cookie type||Description|

You can set your web browser to disable cookies. Please note that most browsers offer different ways to protect your privacy. If you do not activate or deactivate certain cookies via the browser settings, it is possible that certain functionalities will not be available to you as expected. For example, you can allow first-party cookies, but block third-party cookies, or receive a notification each time a website wants to install a cookie.
