(hereinafter: the Controller)

For cookies served by a third party provider (e.g. Facebook), the data collected by the cookie will be sent to that provider. Such providers are separate controllers, independent from us. The location of their processing notice is provided in the description of the relevant cookie.

 

2 What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file which is stored on the hard disk of your computer or mobile device until the expiry date set in the cookie, and will be activated (sent back to the web server) on return visits to the website. The website uses cookies to record information specific to the visit (pages visited, length of time spent on the site, browsing data, exits, etc.), and personal settings in order to help make the website more user friendly and enhance the user experience.

Cookies are classified according to their expiry date, function and origin as follows:

 

2.1 Session and persistent cookies

According to their expiry date, cookies can be divided into two categories, session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies are stored on PCs, notebooks or mobile devices temporarily, until the visitor leaves the page. They are used to ‘remember’ information on a return visit and help avoid having to fill in the same information again. The validity period of session cookies is limited to the current session. These cookies are designed to prevent data loss (for example, while filling in a longer form). Once the session ends or the browser window is closed, they are automatically deleted from the visitor’s computer.

Persistent cookies remain on the computer, notebook or mobile device, even after the visitor leaves the website. They enable the website to recognise the visitor as a returning visitor. They are essential for optimal functionality wherever user authentication is required (e.g. web shops, online banking, webmail). Persistent cookies do not contain personal data and can only identify a user in conjunction with matching data stored in the server database. Expiry dates are specified in the description of the relevant persistent cookie.

 

2.2 First-party and third-party cookies

Cookies placed by our own web server on the device are called first-party cookies, while cookies added by a third party provider, such as Google, are third-party cookies.

2.3 Necessary, statistical and marketing cookies

Necessary cookies provide the functionality essential for the website to work, such as to help completing forms. As the website cannot function without these cookies, it is not required to obtain the visitor’s consent for them.

Statistical cookies collect statistical data about the visitor’s use of the website, such as topics viewed, links clicked on, or website navigation, telling us for example which articles are the most popular. Not being essential, they require the visitor’s consent for their use.

Marketing cookies are designed to help present targeted and customised ads on various advertisement interfaces such as Google or Facebook. They, for example, analyse the manner and location of accessing the website, and record the number of visits and the videos viewed.

The function of each cookie is specified in the description.

3 What type of cookies do we use?
