1. What is a cookie?

Our website uses cookies, which are small files of text that we place on your computer. These cookies allow us to remember your preferences and help us to provide you with the best experience and to continuously improve our site. In practice, different types of cookies can be distinguished:

First and third-party cookies

Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party depends on the person placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by the Web site that is being visited by the user at the time. On the contrary, third-party cookies are not created by Tractebel but by a third party like Google, YouTube, etc.

Persistent and session cookies

A second distinction is made on the basis of the lifetime of the cookie. Persistent cookies remain on the user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the Web site that created that particular cookie. On the contrary, session cookies are temporary: they persist only for the duration of the browser session (which starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when he closes the browser window). Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Essential and non-essential cookies

A third distinction is based on the purpose of cookies. Essential cookies are those that are necessary for good communication and which facilitate navigation (they allow for example the return to the previous page). They are also called “technical cookies”. On the contrary, non-essential cookies are those without which the site can still function properly. This includes, for example, functional cookies, which improve the user experience (for example, by retaining the user’s choice of language or identifiers, or by retaining the “shopping cart”), or analysis cookies (such as Google Analytics) and tracking cookies, which analyse the behaviour of users on the website and retain their preferences (pages viewed, time and geographical area viewed, number of visits, etc.).

2. What cookies do we use and why?

We use cookies on this website to collect standard internet log information and details of our visitors behaviour patterns. This is so we can obtain statistics on the number of visits and determine popular pages on the site. This helps us improve our web content and better understand what our users want. We do not use this information for anything other than our own analysis. We use cookies to: • remember your language and cookies preferences; • analyse web statistics and performance and personalisation. What specific cookies do we use on https://www.laborelec.com/?
