A cookie is a small text file, which a website may save on your computer. Cookies can serve many purposes, but most often they are used to recognise a user on subsequent page visits – an example is the “Click here to remember me” function found when logging in on many websites.
Cookies delete themselves after a certain number of months, but they are renewed with every page visit.
Our website uses two kinds of cookies:
Anonymous cookies are set by WordPress and Google. These cookies hold no personal information about you, but helps us to service the users of our website better.
WordPress is the system, in which our website is built. WordPress sets cookies to ensure that the website is shown in the format best suited to your screen (regardless of whether you are viewing on a phone handset, tablet or the largest monitor in your building).
Google sets cookies for Google Analytics, which helps us to understand how you and other visitors find our website from Google searches – and therefore helps us to know, how we can present our information better to you.
Cookies with your login data are only set, if you tick the “Remember me” checkbox during interpreter booking. Then we’ll set a simple cookie, which allows your computer to remember your login data to the next visit. This cookie does not save any information about your specific interpreter booking, including no information concerning the time and place for the interpretation, about your citizen’s/patient’s personal data nor your contact information.
This is done in slightly different ways for each computer.
