What is a cookie?

 

A cookie is an alphanumeric online identifier that is set on your fixed or mobile computer, tablet, mobile, smartphone, connected vehicle, game console, smart TV, or voice assistant ("Device") when you browse the Website. It enables us to gather certain information about you and how you use the Website. In doing so, we can namely improve the Website’s performance, respond to your requests regarding the Website, remember your Website preferences/settings, offer you an optimal experience with the Website, personalize the services on the Website and the Website content and, in accordance with applicable legislation, send you advertisements tailored to your interests.

 

Why do we use cookies?

What are the types of cookies that we use?

A First Party Cookie is a Cookie that is set by us on your Device, while a Third Party Cookie is a Cookie that is set by an organization other than ours (such as one of our partners) resulting from a domain different than the domain of the Website. An example of a First Party Cookie is when we have your browser ask you to store information about you on your Device, such as your language preference or login information.

Third Party Cookies, on the other hand, are mostly used for advertising and marketing efforts. For example, partner organizations, such as advertisers and other third parties, may integrate such Cookies within some third party content integrated in the Website or within the hyperlinks that lead to such third party websites, locations, platforms and services (“Third Party Services”). It is by virtue of these Third Party Cookies that they can track your activities across time and services and tailor ads to you based on your activities, which may include sending you an ad on such Third Party Service or third party Device after you have left the Website.

Moreover, Cookies can be either temporary (Session Cookie) which disappear when you close your web browser or persistent (Persistent Cookie) which will remain on your Device for a certain period of time to allow us to remember your preferences for your next visits.
