What are cookies?

How long is a cookie stored?
This varies in relation to why it is set. Temporary cookies are stored on your browser only while you are on the website and are automatically deleted when you close the browser or switch off the device.

Permanent (persistent) information capsules are stored on your browser over a period of, for example, 1 day, 3 months, 2 years or until a specific date. The information then remains stored on your browser between visits, but you can delete these manually. A cookie that is stored over a longer period can simplify your experience of the website by, for example, being logged in the next time you visit the website, even if you have closed the browser.
