1. Session cookies

While you are active on a website, a session cookie is temporarily stored in the memory of your computer in which a session identifier is stored, e.g. 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 has automatically expired.

These cookies enable websites to remember your information and settings the next time you visit them. This leads to faster and more convenient access, since you e.g. do not have to set their language again for our portal. When the expiry date has passed, the cookie is automatically deleted when you visit the website that generated it.
