Use of Cookies

Type of cookies we use

An “Internet cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or just “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, other equipment of a user from which the Internet is accessed.

The cookie is installed by a web browser request (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (contains no software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive).

A cookie consists of two parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. In addition, the duration of a cookie is determined. Technically, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that server. Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and in most cases do not personally identify Internet users.

There are 2 broad categories of cookies:

Session cookies – these are temporarily stored in the web browser’s cookie file to save them until the user leaves the site or closes the browser window (e.g. when logging in/out of an email or social network account).

Permanent cookies – these are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depend on the lifetime of the cookie by default). Permanent cookies include those that are placed on a website other than the one the user is currently using – known as ‘third-party cookies’ – which can be used anonymously to remember a user’s interests so that advertising material can be delivered as relevant to users as possible.

According to their function, cookies can also be divided into other categories, such as:

Necessary cookies – these help a usable website by enabling basic functions such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies;

Preferential cookies – these allow a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, such as your preferred language or the region you are in;

Statistics cookies – these help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously;

Marketing cookies – these are used to track visitors from one website to another. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and useful to the individual user and thus more valuable to publishers and third-party marketers.


A cookie contains information that links a web browser (user) to a specific web server (website). If a browser accesses that web server again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly. Cookies provide users with a good browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide useful services to users: for example – private security preferences, language options for the site, shopping carts or relevant advertising.”


Cookies are managed by web servers. The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for one session (“session cookies”) and are not kept once the user has left the website and some cookies are kept and reused whenever the user returns to that website (“persistent cookies”). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time from the browser settings.


Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided by third parties/suppliers (e.g. news box, video or advertisements). These third parties may also place cookies through the site and are called “third-party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner of that website. Third party merchants must comply with applicable law and the site’s security policies.”


A visit to this site may place cookies for the following purposes:

Each time a user visits this site, third-party analytics software generates a user analytics cookie. This cookie tells us whether you have visited this site before. Your browser will tell us if you have this cookie, and if not, we will generate one. It allows us to track unique users who visit us and how often they do so.

As long as you are not registered on this site, this cookie cannot be used to identify individuals, they are only used for statistical purposes. If you are registered, we may also know the details you have provided to us, such as your email address and username – subject to confidentiality and the provisions of the Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy and applicable data protection legislation.”

Cookies for geotargeting

These cookies are used by software that determines where you came from. It is completely anonymous and is only used to target content – even when you are on our English page or in another language, you receive the same ads.

Registration cookies

When you register for this site, we generate a cookie that tells us whether you are registered or not. Our servers use these cookies to show us your account and whether you have permission for a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comments you post on our site with your username. If you have not selected “remember me”, this cookie will be automatically deleted when you close your browser or computer.”

Advertising cookies

These cookies tell us whether or not you have viewed an online advertisement, what type it was, and how long it has been since you saw the advertisement. These cookies are also used to target online advertising. We may also use third-party cookies for better ad targeting, such as showing holiday ads if the user has recently visited a holiday article. These cookies are anonymous, they store information about the content viewed, not about users.

We also set anonymous cookies through other sites we advertise on. By accepting these, we may use them to recognise you as a visitor to that site if you subsequently visit our site, we may provide advertising based on this information.

Advertiser cookies

Much of the advertising you find on this site belongs to third parties. Some of these parties use their own anonymous cookies to analyze how many people have been exposed to an advertisement, or to see how many people have been exposed to the same advertisement multiple times.

The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies and this site does not have access to read or write these cookies. Third-party cookies may be used to show targeted advertising on other sites based on browsing on this site.

Other third-party cookies

On some pages, third parties may set their own anonymous cookies to track the success of an application or to personalize an application. Due to its use, this site cannot access these cookies, just as third parties cannot access cookies held by this site. For example, when you share an article using a social network button on this site, that social network will record your activity.
