A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
We use session and persistent cookies to reflect the user’s choice to the cookie consent.
A session cookie, also known as an in-memory cookie or transient cookie, exists only in the temporary memory of the browser while the user navigates the website. Web browsers normally delete session cookies when the user closes the browser. Session cookies are temporarily saved in the user’s browser and their only purpose is to reflect the choice of the user of not allowing persistent cookies.
You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
