Depending on their lifetime, cookies may be classified in session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies have a storage duration that is limited to the length of a user session. When closing the session or the browser, the stored information is deleted.

Content sections from certain websites (such as, for example, Youtube videos) or certain website functionalities (such as the Instagram feed at the end of our pages) may be provided through third parties/providers. Such third parties may place these cookies on the website (called “third party cookies” since they are not placed by the owner of the website). The third party providers also have to observe the legal regulations in force. More details regarding the manner in which these third parties handle the placement and use of cookies and similar technologies may be found in the corresponding policies of such third parties.

TCP Cookie Transactions (TCPCT) is specified in RFC 6013 (historic status, formerly experimental) as an extension of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) intended to secure it against denial-of-service attacks, such as resource exhaustion by SYN flooding and malicious connection termination by third parties. Unlike the original SYN cookies approach, TCPCT does not conflict with other TCP extensions, but requires TCPCT support in the client (initiator) as well as the server (responder) TCP stack.
