Cookies Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are necessary in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

Cookies can also be used to analyse how a website is used, e.g. to count the number of visitors, or to learn how the website may be improved. All tracking data and website usage are stored anonymously and cannot be linked back to individual website visitors. These cookies are called analytics cookies.

Thirdly, social media cookies are used to enable the integration of social media and your data with the platform in question into the website, so that you can immediately like or share a page without having to reauthenticate your profile.
