1 What are cookies, pixels, plugins and trackers?
Cookies are small data or text files that are put on your computer, tablet or smartphone by websites and applications.
They enable your web browser or device to recognise and store information about your browsing behaviour. For instance, cookies let us remember how to properly display the website on your device, what you have entered on a form, which pages you've visited or whether you've read our newsletter and what your social media profiles are. We use them for collecting all kinds of statistics about how users use our website(s) and online services. Some cookies come from us, and others come from third parties.
We use both temporary cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, and cookies that are used to identify you the next time you visit.
In the section “What cookies do we use”, we describe in detail the types of cookies that we use, the purpose for using them, the basis for doing so, how long we store them on our servers and whether or not we send them to third parties.
- Trackers: technology that remembers your online behaviour between websites, such as which websites you visit, what actions you do and what information you have entered on these websites. This includes, for instance, whether you use a bank card, your search terms or the content of your social media profiles which can then be used to derive an individual’s personality traits. Examples of trackers are certain cookies and pixels.
- Plugins: software components that extend the functionality of the website and that come from third parties.
- Pixels: small, invisible images that enable us to collect specific information about usage of the website, such as the number of users who visit a certain page.
