What types of cookies are there and what are they for?
We can divide the cookies we use into three categories:
1. Essential Cookies
Essential cookies are cookies that are necessary for a website to function. They enable basic functions such as page navigation, security and loading time to work.
2. Functional cookies
Functional cookies are cookies that store information about your choices and preferences on a website. For instance, they remember your choice of language, login details or the region you live in.
3. Analytical cookies
Analytical cookies collect information about website visitor behaviour and website performance. Based on the results, the website can be improved and visitors get a better user experience.
What cookies are set through our site?
First Party Cookies
Brut mainly uses first party cookies or direct cookies that serve to improve your user experience on our website. That is, they only collect information on our website itself. They control the technical part of the website and remember certain things about the visitor, such as language choice, page visited and time spent on the website.
Third Party Cookies
There are also third parties with a different domain name that set cookies via Brut’s website. Examples include Google and Facebook. They track users’ browsing behaviour and create a user profile based on that data.
How can you disable cookies?
You can also disable cookies, delete them or adjust the settings for cookies, although in that case our website will no longer be able to work optimally. Do you want to adjust the settings for cookies anyway? Then you can find instructions for different browsers here
Brut has the right to change this privacy statement if necessary.
