3. Kind of cookies

Cookies can be subdivided based on their offspring, function, and persistency.

First-party cookies are cookies set by a website visited by the user i.e. The website displayed in the address bar.

Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. A third-party cookie occurs when a user visits a website and a third-party set a cookie through that website (e.g. Cookies placed by Google, X (previously Twitter) and Facebook).

Functional cookies are essential cookies that ensure the proper functioning of the website (e.g. Cookies for log-in or registration, language preferences). Functional cookies are logically first-party cookies.

Non-functional cookies are performance cookies that can be set for statistical, social, targeting, and commercial purposes. They are not related to the mere technical support of the website. Non-functional cookies can be first-party or third-party cookies.

  • Cookies with statistical purposes allow us to check which pages of the website you visit, where your
    computer is localized etc.

    media directly with others.

    advertisement will be adapted to your interests.
  • Cookies with commercial purposes keep track of how many and which advertisements are displayed to a user.

Persistent cookies are stored on a user’s device in between browser sessions which allows preferences or actions of the user to be remembered. These cookies are activated every time the user that set these cookies visits the website (e.g. Cookies set by social media such as X, Facebook, Google Analytics, etc.). Most non-functional cookies are persistent cookies.
