The basis for processing data when using cookies is your consent, given via the corresponding button when you first visit the site. However, in order for this consent to be informed, let us tell you a little more about cookies in general.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small packet of information sent from a web server to an Internet browser, and then returned by the browser each time it accesses that server. Cookies are not programs and cannot be executed as code or carry viruses - instead, cookies function more like a passport that the page checks and updates each time you visit it. Cookies are used to store information on the client's web browser.
Many internet browsers support cookies. Users can change the settings of the browser they are interacting with and block certain types or all cookies. Users can delete their cookies from their browser settings at any time. The functions of “cookies” include verifying your identity for security purposes, determining the type of browser and settings you use, or allowing website owners and third-party advertisers to tailor content to your preferences. “Cookies” are managed by your browser. Each “cookie” is unique and contains anonymous information such as a unique identifier, page name, numbers and letters. Cookies allow a website to remember your browsing preferences and make it easier for you to use the websites you visit.
This information enables us to successfully maintain www.adventlife.net, develop it, make it more user-friendly and more helpful to you.

Our cookies are divided into two types: session cookies (those that are temporary and are used to remember you while using the website and expire after a certain amount of time without interaction with the website) and persistent cookies (those that remain permanently on the device from which you use the website). The main purpose of persistent cookies is to ensure the proper functioning of the system, and they can only be read by the website we maintain.
When using certain features on the site, such as accessing links external to www.adventlife.net, a foreign cookie may be added to your device. By accessing links external to www.adventlife.net, you make requests to the corresponding foreign websites, which often leads to the creation of so-called foreign cookies. These cookies are not owned by the rights holders of www.adventlife.net and are managed by the persons/organisations whose link you have accessed. These persons/organisations set these “cookies” and may recognise your computer both when you visit the relevant website or service and when you visit other websites or services.
