What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file and a small amount of data that is sent from a website to a visitor’s browser where it is stored on the visitor’s hard drive. All websites can send cookies to a visitor’s browser if the settings in the browser allow it. During a recurring visit, we can therefore download this cookie from the visitor and adapt the content of our sites to make it easier for you as a visitor, or to direct a certain type of communication uniquely adapted for you as a visitor. This cookie usually remains until the user chooses to delete cookies, which can be done in the browser settings.
There are two types of cookies:
- A permanent cookie that stays on the visitor’s computer for a specified time.
- A “session cookie” is temporarily stored in the computer’s memory while a visitor is on a web page.
We use a “session cookie” for example during our web booking. We do this because the user should not have to re-enter your address information if, for example, the user clicks a step back during the booking process. Session cookies are automatically deleted when the user closes their browser.
Turn off cookies
If you do not accept cookies, you can turn off cookies in your browser’s security settings. You can also set the browser so that you get a question every time the site tries to place a cookie on your computer. Through the browser, previously stored cookies can also be deleted, see the browser’s help pages for more information.
