Types of cookies

There are two types of cookies – sessions, or mandatory cookies, and permanent cookies. Cookies are also classified as first-party or third-party cookies. The following explains the above concepts so that you can better understand the nature of cookies and why we use them.

Sessions, or mandatory cookies 

Sessions, or mandatory cookies, allow for the recognition of the browser and your device, the Internet Protocol (IP) address assigned to your device when you visit a particular website, and memorise any changes or choices on that website so that they can be used in other sections of the website, for example – you will have access to other restricted sections of the website after you have successfully logged in to the website until you have an active logout. These cookies allow you to use several pages of one website quickly and easily, avoiding the need to log in to the website to visit each protected section of the website. Session cookies are non-permanent – they expire when you close the browser in which you viewed the website or end the session on that website.

Permanent cookies

Permanent cookies are cookies that are stored on your device with which you browse the website for a specific predefined period of time, in which the time is counted after the end of the website browsing session. Stored cookies allow you to use previously made choices or actions on the website every time you visit this website.
