Why does merXu use cookies?

MerXu uses cookies to provide you with a convenient way to use the site and analyse how you use the platform.

  • remember session and authentication data (e.g. so that the user does not have to log on to every sub-page of the portal),
  • memorize settings (e.g. selected language, letter case),
  • analyse performance and safety of the platform (e.g. page loading speed),

  • personalise ads.

What types of cookies does merXu use?
