What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files containing information that can be placed on the hard drive of your computer by a website. When you visit a website, a cookie is stored on your computer, so that a website always knows who you are. In this way, users can be distinguished from each other.
Different types of cookies
Most cookies require permission from the visitor. As a visitor you will therefore first receive a notification and have to accept this before the cookies are placed.
When the website infringes on the privacy of the user, for example when the cookies have purely commercial purposes, websites must always ask permission from the visitor. This applies, among other things, to tracking cookies that track individual behavior and thus draw up a visitor profile. Because these cookies give the website the opportunity to track the visitor, the privacy of the visitor is infringed here. Some websites allow a third party to place cookies. In that case, permission-required cookies must also be placed to ask the visitor for permission.
However, there are also permission-free cookies that are used to improve the functioning of the website. A distinction is made between analytical cookies and functional cookies. Analytical cookies are used to increase the convenience of the user. These are used by websites that use analytics tools, such as Google Analytics and Hotjar. Functional cookies are used to make a website function better. In this way, visitors' products remain in the shopping basket, for example.
