1. What’s a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file placed on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device that is issued by the server of the website you are visiting.

The cookie contains a unique code that allows its sender to recognize the relevant device (your computer or mobile device) each time the website is visited.

The cookie identifies the browser on your device but never you personally. In addition, a web site's server can only read cookies that it has placed itself and does not have access to any other information on your computer or mobile device.

Cookies can either be placed by the server of the website you visit ("origin cookies") or by partners with whom this website collaborates ("third party cookies").

 

2. Duration of the validity of a cookie

Some cookies expire when you close your browser "session cookies", while others remain on your device for longer periods of time, sometimes until you manually delete them ("persistent cookies").

Generally speaking, cookies have a limited period of validity. The most common duration of validity is 30 days and the maximum duration is 13 months from the day the cookie is deposited on your terminal.

3. General purposes of cookies

The primary goal is to ensure more efficient and fast navigation (e.g. a cookie remembers the language you choose, identifies you when you access your account,...). Cookies memorize your preferences and thus allow you to speed up and facilitate your access to the site.
