What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site.
- First party cookies are cookies set by the website you’re visiting. Only that website can read them. In addition, a website might potentially use external services, which also set their own cookies, known as third-party cookies.
- Persistent cookies are cookies saved on your computer and that are not deleted automatically when you quit your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you quit your browser.
At cert.europa.eu we use "first-party cookies". These are cookies set and controlled by CERT-EU, not by any external organisation.
We only use one type of cookie: an Essential cookie, which is necessary for the technical functioning of the website.
