A cookie is a small text file that is stored by a website on your computer, phone or other devices with information about your browsing behaviour on this website. Cookies are necessary to make navigation easier and more user-friendly. They do not cause any damage to your computer.

Session cookies exist only during one session and contain information that is used within your current browser session. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser or turn off your computer. Nothing is persisted on your machine beyond the time you spend on the site.

Persistent cookies are used to hold information that is used between visits and make it possible to recognize you during subsequent visits to the website or application and react accordingly. Persistent cookies remain on your device until their end date is reached, until a new cookie is installed or until you delete them in the settings of your browser, application or mobile device.
