A cookie is a small file with a unique code that allows websites to store certain information on a user's device.
This information may be about you, your preferences or your device, and is usually used to make the site work as you would expect. When you visit the website again later, the cookie can be resent to the website's server. This ensures, among other things, that the website recognizes your browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Edge, Safari) and that you can surf smoothly and quickly.
Your personal settings and preferences are kept, so that, for example, you do not have to make your language or region choice again on your next visit. Cookies can also be placed by third parties with whom we collaborate, for example by Google Analytics to measure the use of a site. They can also be used to set up campaigns, for example on Facebook or LinkedIn.
A website can only read the cookies that it has placed itself. He does not have access to any other information on your computer.

There are two types of cookies: first-party cookies and third-party cookies. Technically there is no difference between the two types. The difference has to do with how the cookies are created and then used, which often depends on the context.

Cookies placed by, for example, Hotjar, Facebook, Google and LinkedIn ensure that these companies know that a surfer has visited the CM website or a specific page of the CM website. By using such cookies, these parties collect data that may be used for other purposes outside CM's responsibility.
