What is a cookie?

Cookies are used on most of the websites you visit to improve the user convenience of the website. Cookies enable a website to ‘remember’ your preferential settings during your visit to the site and with recurring visits to the site. Cookies can be used for various purposes. For example, to enable you to navigate efficiently between the various pages, to save your user preferences, to analyse navigation and to improve the user friendliness of the website. Cookies enable you to interact quickly and smoothly with the website. When a website does not use cookies then each time you go to a new page on the site it thinks that you are a new visitor. An example: if you have entered your log in details and go to a different page, the website will not recognise you and you will no longer be logged in.

The information and services provided by many websites are free. In order for these websites to be offered and used for free they display adverts. These adverts can also use cookies. If a link on a website takes you to a web shop, then that information is exchanged using cookies. The information includes, for example, the fact the you have gone via one website to get to the web shop to buy a product. The initial website then receives payment for this and it means the website can remain free for you and other users. Cookies can be placed by the site you visit or by other websites (or other online service providers) who manage the content displayed on the page you are visiting.

More about the various cookies and other measuring techniques

Functional cookies

Functional cookies are necessary to enable you to use the website you are visiting. For example, to recognise that you are the same user who visited the previous page on the site or to remember your preferences.

Performance cookies

Performance cookies are used to measure whether a displayed advert leads to a purchase or to registration, for instance. Websites are paid for this; they can therefore generate income and can keep the website free. These cookies do not store any personal data and cannot be traced back to an individual.
