"Cookies" are small files that are stored on users computers. Various information can be stored within the cookies. A cookie serves primarily to store the information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit to an online service.
Temporary cookies, or "session cookies" or "transient cookies", are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online service and closes his browser. In such a cookie, e.g. the contents of a shopping cart are stored in an online store or a login status.
The term "permanent" or "persistent" refers to cookies that remain stored after the browser has been closed. In such cookies, e.g. the login status stays saved if users visit the site after several days. The interests of the users can also be stored in such cookies, and they can be used for range measurement or marketing purposes.
A "third-party cookie" refers to cookies that are used by providers other than the person responsible for managing the online service (Cookies used by the online service itself are called "first-party cookies").
If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to disable the relevant option in their browser's system settings. Cookies already saved can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies may lead to functional restrictions of this online service.
