What are cookies?Cookies are normally used so that the browser can recognize the user while repeatedly calling up these pages. Within Stud.IP, cookies are used to have the user's name and details available on each page. Without cookies you would have to log in each time you access a new page!
Are cookies dangerous?Unfortunately, activating cookies represents a small security risk. However you should be aware that in most browsers, techniques are integrated which clearly represent a greater security risk (e.g. Active X-Elements).
In addition, there are two types of cookies: those which are saved on the hard disk and stay there and those which are active only as long as the according page is used.
The Stud.IP-system only uses these harmless cookies that are stored in the memory of the browser just for the duration of the session and afterwards automatically disappear.
In short, there is no need to worry!
