What are Cookies?

A Cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer when visiting a website. This text file stores information that can be read by the website when visiting it again later. Cookies can be installed by the server of the website you visit or by partners of that website. A website’s server can only read the Cookies it has installed itself and has no access to other information found in your computer or mobile device. Cookies are stored in a folder of your browser on your computer or mobile device. Cookies generally make the interaction between the visitor and the website faster and easier and help the visitor navigate between the different parts of a website. Some of these Cookies are necessary because otherwise the site is unable to function properly. Other Cookies are convenient for the visitor: they remember your username in a secure way as well as your language preferences, for example. Cookies mean that you do not need to fill out the same information each time you visit a website.

Where do Cookies come from?

Based on the origin of Cookies, we make a distinction between first-party and third-party Cookies.

First-party Cookies

First-party Cookies are direct Cookies that we manage ourselves. They are specific to the Site. The Site creates and places the Cookies in order to function properly, for example.

Third-party Cookies

Third-party Cookies are Cookies that are managed or placed by a third party and not by OneSpan. This happens during your visit or use of our Sites. Third-party Cookies therefore cause certain data to be sent to third parties through your visit to or use of a Site. These are, for example, social media Cookies or Cookies from advertisers, which allow you to see advertisements. Although we do not manage or place these Cookies ourselves, we attempt to ensure that the placement of these Cookies by third parties via our platforms is as controlled as possible.
