What are cookies and what are they used for?
A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies are placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information. This information is used to track visitor use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise Lab Luxembourg S.A. pages, or register with Lab Luxembourg S.A. site or services, a cookie helps Lab Luxembourg S.A. to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information. When you return to the same Lab Luxembourg S.A. Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Lab Luxembourg S.A. features that you customised.
You can set your browser not to accept cookies, and the above websites tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, in a few cases, some of our website features may not function as a result.
