Types of cookies

Cookies can be divided according to their lifespan, origin and function.


With regard to the lifespan of cookies, a distinction is made between:

Session cookies or temporary cookies. These are removed when the browser is closed. These cookies only apply to the current session.
Permanent cookies: remain on your computer, even after your browser is closed, until they are removed by you.


With regard to the origin of cookies, a distinction is made between:

First party cookies: are those cookies that are placed by a website that is currently being visited by the user.
Third-party cookies are cookies placed by a domain name other than that of the website visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a third party places a cookie via that website, this is a third-party cookie (e.g. cookies placed by Google, Twitter and Facebook).


  • Essential cookies: are cookies that are strictly necessary for a website to function (better). They ensure that basic functions such as page navigation, security and loading time can work.

For example, they remember your language choice, login details or the region in which you live. We always place these types of cookies and fall outside the cookie law.
