Under these conditions, the same rules on information and consent apply to analytics cookies as to technical cookies.
- From the point of view of duration, a distinction can be made between temporary session cookies, which are automatically deleted at the end of the browsing session and serve to identify the user and therefore avoid logging in on each page visited, and permanent cookies, which remain active on the computer until they expire or are deleted by the user.
