What are Cookies?
Cookies are tiny text files saved on your personal Computer, Tablet and on Mobile device.
Our cookies never contain personal data. Cookies are not a security risk for your data. Cookies are not constantly running applications; they will not copy or obtain files on your computer, besides they are not able to transmit viruses.
Which Cookies do we use?
We have different cookies set by our website:
1st Party Cookie
First-party cookie is a cookie also known as persistent cookie. Persistent (permanent) cookies are stored on your computer and cease to be valid only if their assigned expiration date has passed. Depending on that date, a persistent cookie could be valid for a few seconds, over days to several of years.
3rd Party Cookie
A third-party cookie is a tracking cookie set by a third party. The advantage of 3rd party cookies, however, is that you must not install a code on the landing page. Therefore, 3rd party cookie tracking is technically easier than 1st party cookie. Google AdWords uses 3rd party cookies to determine the conversion rate. Google Analytics for example uses 1st party cookies.
