Which cookies do we use?
Below we give more information about the different types of cookies that we (may) use:
First-Party and Third-Party Cookies
We place some cookies on your device ourselves (first-party cookies), while others are placed by third parties (third-party cookies). You can see which party is placing the cookie in the “Provider” column above, but also via your browser.
Temporary, permanent and session cookies
Cookies can be stored on your device for a specific period of time or for the duration of a session. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent from a web server to a web browser, which is stored by the browser and remains valid until the set expiration date (unless you delete the cookie before the expiration date). A session cookie, on the other hand, expires at the end of the user session when the web browser is closed.

After you adjust your cookie settings, your browser may indicate that certain cookies for which you have withdrawn your consent are still present on your device. Because if you withdraw your consent, we can only deactivate these cookies (these cookies will then no longer share data with us), but not remove them from your device ourselves.
