Everyone knows them: The cookie notices as soon as you open a website. Unfortunately, these cookies are not cookies either, but a text program that runs in the background of the website. Depending on which setting the user has chosen, these settings can be retrieved by the web server at a later time. This saves the user from having to make the settings again and again when visiting a website several times, because the server remembers the data entered.
Settings in the web browser can be saved for a later, renewed visit to the website
In online shopping, a shopping cart that already contains items can be displayed again at a later time. The user does not have to add the items again
Cookies help the website operator and the user to display the page correctly when it is called up again, with the previously individually selected settings.
The user can be recognized by cookies. For example, if the user comes back to your website via a social media ad, this can be recognized and the user does not have to log in again.
What are the types of cookies?
These include all cookies that are absolutely necessary so that the content is displayed correctly to the visitor of the website. They are essential for the functioning of the website. This includes, for example, the storage of settings in the cookie banner.
The technically unnecessary cookies are cookies that require consent. For example, they evaluate the usage behavior of your website visitors for analysis purposes. If you use Google Analytics or map services such as Google Maps, the user must consent to the analysis of his data. The user must also consent to the use of social media plugins on the website.
First party cookies are set by the website operator. This means that, with the user’s consent, only the data from the website on which the user is currently browsing is tracked. First party cookies are not used across different domains.
Third party cookies are often set by advertisers and thus not by the website operator itself. A user can therefore be on a website on which first party cookies and third party cookies are used at the same time. Third party cookies are mainly used by advertisers who have placed web ads on the corresponding website. The cookies collect and store information about the user. If he visits another website on which the advertisement is also placed, he will be recognized. Third party cookies are used to evaluate the surfing behavior of a user over a longer period of time.
What are the implications of the TTDSG in relation to cookies?
