What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file containing small amounts of information, which is downloaded to your device when you (first) visit a website. That cookie is then sent back to the website of origin on each subsequent visit, or to another website which recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device, and they provide you with a more efficient and personalised website experience.
What types of cookie are used?
At EURid, we use both so-called first-party cookies as well as third-party cookies on our website(s).
First-party cookies are cookies that are used by EURid during your visit to one of our websites, such as technical, session, persistent, and functional cookies:
Technical cookies are essential for the website to function properly. These cookies enable you to navigate between the various sections of our website and to use specific functionalities.

Persistent cookies or ‘tracking cookies’ outlast an individual session and remain in your browser for a specific period after the session (unless you delete the cookie).
Functional cookies monitor the correct operation of the website and allow the website to remember the choices you make (e.g. your language preference, your user name, or your region). They provide enhanced and more personal features, sparing you from having to specify your choices every time you visit the website

The cookies we use do not collect data that reveal your personal identity and therefore, do not make it possible for us to identify you.
