What kind of cookies do we use?

There are two types of cookies. One type saves a file for a long time on your computer. This type is called a “persistent cookie”. It is used, for example, in functions that tell you what is new since the user last visited the current website. A “persistent cookie” is stored on your device for a longer period of time or until you delete it yourself. How long the cookie is stored on your device depends on the “lifetime” of the specific cookie. The second type of cookie is called “session cookies”. While you are browsing a page, this cookie is temporarily stored in your computer's memory, for example to keep track of the language you have selected. Session cookies are not stored for a long time on your computer, and disappear when you close your browser.
