3. TYPES OF COOKIES
Our cookies can be classified according to their origin, their function and their life span.
First party cookies are cookies placed by a website that is visited by the user at that moment (e.g. cookies placed by Parkwind NV).
Third party cookies are cookies placed by a different domain name than that of the website visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a third party places a cookie through that website, then this is a third party cookie (e.g. cookies placed by Google, Twitter, Facebook and Hotjar).
Functional cookies are cookies that ensure that the Website functions properly (e.g. cookies for log-in or registration, language preferences). Functional cookies are logically first party cookies.
Non-functional cookies are cookies that can be placed for statistical, social, targeting and commercial purposes. They have nothing to do with the mere technical support of the website. Cookies with static purposes make it possible to check which pages of the website you visit, where your computer is located, etc. Cookies with social purposes allow the user to share the content of the visited website directly with others via social media. Cookies with targeting purposes allow to build a profile based on your surfing behavior, so that the displayed ads are tailored to your interests. Cookies with commercial purposes keep track of how many and which advertisements were shown to a user. Non-functional cookies can be first party or third party cookies.
Permanent cookies: These cookies remain on the user's device for the duration specified in the cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the website that placed that cookie (e.g. cookies placed by social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics, etc). Most non-functional cookies are persistent cookies.
Session Cookies: These cookies allow us to simplify and link a user's actions during a browser session. A browser session begins when a user opens the browser window and ends when they close the browser window. Session cookies are placed temporarily.
