What exactly are cookies?

Whenever you browse the Internet, you use a browser. Most websites store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

These cookie files are automatically placed in the cookie folder, effectively the "brain" of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.

Cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you return to our site, your browser transmits the "user-related" information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our site knows who you are and offers you your usual default setting.

Whilst cookies can be classified through their Lifespan, i.e., whether they remain stored on your device for the duration of your browsing session, session cookies, or permanently until they are deleted or expire, permanent cookies. A second method to classify cookies is by determining their origin or by who is placing a particular cookie. As such a distinction is drawn between first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner websites. Each cookie must be evaluated individually, as each cookie stores different data. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans, or other "pests". Cookies also cannot access information on your PC.
