An explanation of the most frequently used types of cookies is provided in the following for your reference:
1. Session cookies
While you are active on a web page, a session cookie is temporarily stored in your computer’s memory. This contains a session ID so, for example, you do not have to log in again for each page you access. Session cookies are deleted when you log off, or cease to be valid upon the automatic expiration of your session.
2. Persistent or stored cookies
Persistent or stored cookies save files on your computer until the scheduled expiration date. The cookies enable web pages to remember your information and settings the next time you visit. This makes it easier and quicker to access the web pages; for example, there is no need to re-adjust the language settings for our portal each time you visit. When the expiry date elapses, the cookies are automatically deleted when you visit the web page that created them.
3. Third-party cookies
Third-party cookies come from providers other than the operator of the web page. They may be used for example to collect information for advertising or generate custom content and web statistics.
4. Flash cookies
Flash cookies are stored on your computer as data elements of websites that use Adobe Flash Player. Flash cookies are not time-limited.
