How do we categorise cookies?

To better understand cookies, we have categorised each cookie as follows:

  • Strictly necessary cookies and functionality cookies: These cookies are indispensable for the website, allowing the visitor to move around and use various functions, such as language settings, when the visitor moves between different pages during the browser session. Without indispensable cookies, certain services of the website may not be possible and the website may not perform as smoothly. Functionality cookies also allow the website to remember your choices and to offer you improved and personalised functions. These cookies do not collect any sort of information for marketing purposes nor in order to remember where you have been on the internet.
  • Analytical or performance cookies: Performance cookies collect information about visiting the website and help us improve the way the website works. For example, performance cookies can show which pages are most frequently visited, save whatever difficulties may have occurred during the visit and show whether the advertising on the website has been effective or not. Performance cookies do not collect information which would identify the person of the visitor and all information gathered by them is assembled and anonymous.
  • Targeting or marketing cookies: Targeting or marketing cookies are used to forward you the advertising most fitting with your interests or in order to limit the number of times you see the same advertising on the website. These cookies are also used to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns and to remember what you have looked at on the website.
