What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that are stored on your device when you visit a website. If you then return to the same website, the website recognizes the cookie and remembers your device, the choices you have made, and acts in accordance with the specific objective a cookie has. As such cookies have a name and value and one or more defined characteristics, which are returned to the website as "user-related" information. So, thanks to cookies, a website knows who you are and offers you your usual default settings.
Origins and Lifespans of Cookies
There are however classes of cookies, namely first-party cookies which are placed directly by the website. As well as third-party cookies which are created by a partner website or server. And since it would not be very beneficial if all cookies would save the same information for the same period of time, each cookie stores different data and has a lifespan (that can vary from a few minutes to a few years).
In this sense, we now understand that cookies are automatically placed in the cookie folder, effectively the "brain" of your browser, that each can have a different origin, holds different information, and can have a different lifespan depending on its objective. Because of that there are several types of cookies.
Types of Cookies
The least privacy invasive type of cookies are Essential or Necessary cookies. These cookies are essential or necessary to ensure that a website works properly and is secure so that you can navigate a website and use its features. Without these cookies, certain features of a website would not function, and thus you would not be able to use certain services.
There are also Functional cookies or sometimes called convenience cookies. These cookies allow a website to remember the options a user has made (including user ID`s stored, consents given, or languages selected) and other personalization options you have selected when browsing.
Further there are also Analysis and performance cookies, which are used to monitor and improve the function and service of a website. Those can track down problems when using a website, facilitate online surveys, record visitor numbers, and provide analytics metrics.
Lastly, advertising cookies or targeting cookies. They are used to deliver customized advertising to the user. This can be very convenient, but also very annoying.
The Cookies used on our website
The DPA and PECD requires us to ask for your consent when using specific cookies (in particular any cookie that is not strictly necessary for the operation of the website, for example, Functional cookies, Analysis and performance cookies and Advertising cookies or targeting cookies).
We use Google Analytics from Google LLC to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on the activities and to provide other services related to the use of our website in order to improve the user experience.

Google Remarketing (Google Ads)
As a further tracking technology, we have integrated Google Remarketing services on our website. Google Remarketing is a function of Google Ads that enables a company to display advertisements to Internet users who have previously visited the company's website. The integration of Google Remarketing thus allows a company to create user-related advertising and consequently to display interest-relevant advertisements to the Internet user.
The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing enables us to display advertisements via the Google advertising network or to have them displayed on other Internet pages that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.
You have the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link www.google.com/settings/ads from any of the internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.
How can I delete cookies?
Regardless of which service or website the cookies come from, you always have the option to delete, only partially allow or disable cookies. To do so follow the link to your browser Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Flash cookies, Microsoft Internet Explorer/ Edge, Opera, Safari.
