EBRA's Cookie Policy

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that can be stored on your computer when you visit websites.

Information is saved in this text file, such as your choice of language on a website. When you visit the website later again, this cookie returns to the concerned website. In this way, the website recognizes your browser and can for example retain your choice of language.

Cookies usually also have an expiration date. For example, some cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser (so-called session cookies), while others can be stored longer on your computer, sometimes until you delete them manually (so-called permanent cookies).

No data is sent to third parties. Therefore, we guarantee that this information will not be used for other purposes.
