What is a cookie?A cookie is a text file sent by the web server to your browser and stored on your computer's hard drive.
A distinction is made between two categories of cookies: session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which remain stored (whether or not for a specific period of time) on the data medium, even after you close your browser. The majority of cookies used by the Clinique romande de réadaptation (CRR) website are session cookies. However, the website also uses permanent cookies to save your settings for your next visit to the site and to offer you information according to your interests.
A distinction is also made between proprietary cookies and third-party cookies: the former are generated by the website or domain operator, while the latter are sent by auxiliary persons or service providers. Third-party cookies are mainly used to enable the subsequent display of advertising offers tailored to the user's interests, either on the CRR website or on those of third parties (retargeting). Advertisements based on what interested you on the CRR website may then be displayed on third party websites.
