Technical information about cookies
What is a cookie?
A cookie is an information file which is placed on the web browser of a computer or mobile device – such as a smartphone, iPhone or iPad – by the server of the website that the visitor is consulting. The cookie contains a code that can be read by the server that placed it on the visitor’s web browser. The website being visited does not have access to other information files located on the visitor’s computer or mobile device.
How is a cookie file structured?
A cookie file consists of the following components:
- The name of the server that placed the cookie file on the computer;
- An expiry date;
- A unique numerical code.
What are cookies for?
Cookies ensure that visitors to the website have the best possible experience. Among other things, this means enabling the visitor to navigate more quickly and easily between the different parts of the website and adjusting the content of the website to the visitor’s personal preferences, for example their preferred language.
Where can I find these cookies?
The cookies are placed in a separate folder for the web browser on the hard disk of the visitor’s computer or mobile device.
Are there different types of cookies?
The relevant legislation makes a distinction between functional or technically necessary cookies on the one hand (these are first-party cookies, where the stored information is passed back to the website that placed the cookie),and all other cookies on the other hand (third-party cookies, where the stored information is forwarded to another website to which it belongs). Functional cookies ensure the optimal functioning of the website, and aim to provide the visitor with as pleasant and smooth an experience as possible. Permission for this kind of cookies is not strictly necessary, as they are only stored for the current browser session.
A further distinction can be made according to the specific purpose of the cookie.
