1st session cookies
While you are active on a website, a session cookie is temporarily stored in your computer's memory, where a session ID is stored, for example, to prevent you from having to log in again each time you change pages. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or lose their validity as soon as your session expires automatically.
2. permanent or protocol cookies
A permanent or log cookie stores a file on your computer for the expiration date. These cookies enable websites to remember your information and settings the next time you visit them. This leads to faster and more convenient access, as you do not have to change your language settings for our portal, for example. When the expiry date expires, the cookie is automatically deleted when you visit the website that generated it.
