Cookies Policy

To make the websites of the Publications Office work properly, we sometimes place small data files called ‘cookies’ on your device.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

  • First-party cookies are cookies set by the website you’re visiting. Only that website can read them.
  • Third-party cookies may be used when a website uses external services which set their own cookies.
  • Session cookies are cookies that are deleted automatically when you quit your browser.
  • Persistent cookies are cookies that are saved on your computer and remain on your computer when you quit your browser.
  • Essential cookiesare cookies that are necessary to ensure that the website is properly displayed for you. They may e.g. include information on your operating system version and language, browser or location.

Every time you visit the Publications Office’s websites, you will be prompted to either accept all cookies or only essential cookies. Cookies can also be used to establish anonymised statistics about the browsing experience on our sites.

How do we use cookies?
