What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that contains fragments of information.
When you visit websites, the information collected by different cookies is stored on your device (example: your language preference for a website). The cookie contains a unique code that allows its sender to recognize the device (your computer or mobile device) each time the website is visited.
The cookie identifies the browser on your device but never you personally. In addition, a website's server can only read cookies that it has placed itself and has no access to any other information on your computer or mobile device.
Cookies can either be placed by the server of the website you visit, so-called "origin cookies", or by partners with whom this website collaborates, so-called "third-party cookies".
Some cookies expire when you close your browser, these are called "session cookies", while others stay on your device for longer, sometimes even until you manually delete them, these are called "persistent cookies".
Generally speaking, cookies have a limited period of validity. The most common duration of validity is 30 days and the maximum duration is 13 months from the day the cookie is placed on your device.
You can also delete these cookies or refuse their installation at any time and free of charge by modifying the options of your browser software.
The configuration of each browser is different.
Each procedure is described in the help menu of your browser. To do so, please go to the following links:
