1a. What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer whenever you visit a web page or app. They contain information linked to a web browser and the specific website or app. Cookies consist of two components: the name and the content. They are stored in a specific folder on your hard drive and provided with a unique ID and retention time. Cookies enable the website to recognise you the next time you visit it and to further build up your history. Some cookies are automatically cleared when you leave the website, others remain on your computer as long as you do not clear them yourself.
1b. What are the other techniques?
2. What types of cookies are there?
First-party cookies are cookies that are stored by the website you are visiting. They can only be read by that particular website. In addition, a website may use external services that also store their own cookies, the so-called third-party cookies.
3. Which types of cookies do we use?
Strictly necessary cookies (always enabled)
These cookies are necessary for the website to work properly and cannot be disabled. Therefore, no consent is required for this type of cookies. In most cases, they are only used in response to an action through which you are essentially requesting a service, for example, registering of your privacy settings, logging into the website or filling out a form. These cookies do not collect any personally identifiable information (PII).
These cookies enable the website and apps to work properly and to offer additional features and customised settings. They for instance help to remember and store the products that you have added to your online shopping list and to keep track of your login details to prevent you from having to re-enter them on every visit. These cookies are set by us or by third-party service providers that we have placed on our pages. We do however never store them without your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by following the procedure described in point 6.
Performance and analytic cookies
These cookies allow us to count visitors and keep track of their origin in order to analyse and improve the performance of our website. They help us understand which pages are most or least popular and how visitors move around the site. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. We never store these cookies without your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by following the procedure described in point 6.
These cookies can be stored by the advertisers on our website. These also include our social media cookies. They can be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other websites. They do not store any direct personal information, but are based on unique identifiers of your browser and internet device. We only store these cookies if you have given your consent thereto. You can withdraw your consent at any time by following the procedure described in point 6.
4. How long are cookies kept?
How long a cookie is kept differs from one cookie to another. In this respect, we distinguish two types of cookies
Temporary cookies ("session cookies”): these are cookies that are of a temporary nature and are cleared as soon as you close your browser;
Permanent cookies (“persistent cookies”): these cookies will remain on your device until their retention period has expired or until you manually clear them from your device.
Cookies can be first-party, third-party, persistent or session cookies.
Some providers of cookies on our websites are the following (non-exhaustive). Below is the information these partners themselves provide about their technology (incl. cookies):

How to clear cookies from your device.

Managing site-specific cookies.
