What exactly are cookies?
What are cookies actually needed for?
Cookies are supposed to make the user's visit to a website easier and more user-friendly. For example, with online shopping they allow the website to "remember" which products you had in your basket when you call up the page again, or they ensure your preferred layout and font size are automatically displayed.
However, not all cookies are useful and exclusively for the benefit of the user. For example, tracking cookies are used to monitor your behaviour on websites and to place advertising accordingly, or to make websites more user-friendly. It is therefore important to think about which cookies you should allow and which you should refuse. To make this decision, it is helpful to know what types of cookie there are.
Cookies are absolutely necessary for essential functions of the website to work. Without these the website cannot be used as intended. These cookies collect anonymised information (no link to your identity can therefore be made) and they cannot monitor your movements on other websites. Your consent to the use of these cookies is not required
