- Cookies. What are they and what are they used for?
Cookies can identify the user’s terminal, the type of web-browser used, the relevant browser settings for cookies (such as Do Not Track) and other information such as IP address (if applicable), the area and country from which the content is accessed, the frequency of access and more.
The purpose of using this information collected through cookies is to present content in a relevant way, tailored to the user’s preferences (language, format, etc.) and to remember the user’s choices each time they return to the site. Cookies may also be used for statistical purposes and to display advertising content relevant to the user.
In terms of necessity, cookies fall into two categories: essential and non-essential.
- Essential cookies are cookies that ensure the proper functioning of the website and without which the website cannot function properly. These cookies must be accepted in order to navigate the site and all related pages and subdomains.
- Non-essential cookies are cookies that help a lot in the functioning and optimisation of the website content by processing and adapting the information to the user. These cookies are not absolutely necessary for the functionality of the site.
Cookies can be classified in several ways depending on their origin. For example:
- A ‘First party’ cookie is a cookie generated and used only by the website visited. Most of the time, these cookies are essential cookies.
- Third party’ cookies are cookies whose origin is outside the site and whose information we cannot control. Most of the time, such cookies are non-essential. Some examples of third party cookies are Google Analytics cookies, Facebook Pixel, LinkedIn Pixel, Google Tag Manager. The data collected through these cookies and the purpose for which this data may be used is not controlled by the site.
Depending on the duration of validity, cookies are:
- Session cookies – cookies that have a short validity, they expire when you close the web-browser.
- Persistent cookies – are files that remain stored on your terminal for a longer (but not indefinite) period of time. They automatically expire when they reach their expiry date or when they are manually deleted.
Depending on the purpose for which they are used, cookies are:
- Necessary for the functionality of the site – cookies without which the site cannot be navigated. Among other things, they maintain the security and integrity of your session.
- For storing preferences – cookies that remember your choices about language, region, etc. They are also used for full autocomplete functions, such as completing your user when you return to the page.

- Customize your browser settings for cookies to reflect a level of cookie security that is comfortable for you.
- If you share computer access with more than one person, you may consider setting your browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is a way of accessing sites that place cookies and deleting any visit data when you close your browsing session.
- Install and constantly update your antivirus and antispyware applications. Many spyware detection and prevention applications include detection of attacks on websites. This prevents your browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software.
- Make sure your browser is always up to date. Many cookie-based attacks exploit weaknesses in older versions of browsers.
- Warning! Disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites unusable or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive/see online advertising.
- All modern browsers offer the possibility to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser.
