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.

Every time you visit the EMODnet's websites, you will be prompted to accept or refuse cookies.

The purpose is to enable the site to remember your preferences for a certain period of time.

Cookies can also be used to establish anonymised statistics about the browsing experience on our sites.

How do we use cookies?

The 3 types of first-party cookie we use are to:
  • store visitor preferences
  • make our websites operational
  • gather analytics data (about user behaviour)

Visitor preferences

These are set by us and only we can read them. They remember if you have agreed to (or refused) this site's cookie policy.
