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.
The purpose is to enable the site to remember your preferences (such as username, language, etc.) for a certain period of time.
That way, you don’t have to re-enter them when browsing around the website during the same visit.
Cookies can also be used to establish anonymised statistics about the browsing experience on our website.
Servdebt’s / Our website mostly uses “first-party cookies”. These are cookies set and controlled by the Commission, not by any external organisation. You can accept, decline or delete cookies at any time by simply selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, disabling cookies may prevent some services on the website from functioning properly, partially or totally affecting the website’s navigation.
The 3 types of first-party cookies we use are to:
- store visitor preferences;
- make our websites operational;
- gather analytics data (about user behaviour).
There are some cookies that we have to include in order for certain web pages to function. For this reason, they do not require your consent.
Servdebt uses these purely for internal research on how we can improve the service we provide for all our users.
The cookies simply assess how you interact with our website – as an anonymous user (the data gathered does not identify you personally).
Also, this data is not shared with any third parties or used for any other purpose.
