Cookies can be assigned to four categories, depending on their function and intended purpose: absolutely necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, and cookies for marketing purposes.

Absolutely necessary cookies

Absolutely necessary cookies are needed for you to navigate within Staria’s website and operate basic website functions, such as the issuance of anonymous Session IDs for bundling several related queries to a server..

Performance cookies

Performance cookies collect information on the usage of our websites, including, for example, the Internet browsers and operating systems used, the domain name of the website which you previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, and pages called up.

These cookies do not store any information that would make it possible to personally identify the user.

Functional cookies

Functional cookies enable a website to store information the user has already entered (such as user ID, language selection, or the user’s location), in order to offer improved, personalised functions to the user.
