This Cookie Policy provides information on how cookies and similar technologies are used on this Promedeus website and related mobile sites, applications ("Applications"), electronic newsletters or devices that link to this Cookie Policy , so that you can make an informed choice about the acceptance of cookies by you.

What are cookies?

A "cookie" is a small text file that is placed and stored on your computer, smartphone or other device, or in a web browser by websites or applications that you visit. Cookies allow you to pass a small amount of information about your device to our web server. They allow websites to recognize your computer, smartphone, tablet or other device when you browse the web. Tracking pixels or web beacons, pixels, JavaScript, and other tracking technologies also use cookies and / or use invisible images or code to collect visitor session data in a manner similar to cookies. Depending on how long the cookie is stored, we distinguish between session cookies and persistent cookies:

Temporary cookies

The temporary cookies are deleted when the relevant website is closed. Temporary cookies may allow a website to remember you while you are browsing, but this cookie will then be deleted as soon as you log out or close the website or your internet browser. For example, temporary cookies may be used to enable shopping cart features to remember if you have added an item to your cart while browsing and searching for other items you wish to purchase on that website.

Persistent cookies

A persistent cookie will remember you for a while. During this time (it can be minutes, days or months) it remains stored on your device or in a web browser after you have logged out or closed your browser. For example, persistent cookies may be used to remember whether you have selected certain preferences on a website (eg your choice of language).
