Cookies are usually widely used to make website operation more effective, as well as to provide certain information to owners of the respective website.

How do we use cookies?

There are two different types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. There are used for different needs and contain information of different kinds.

  • EURAXESS Switzerland uses session cookies set and managed by the website to improve functionality of the website. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser.
  • EURAXESS Switzerland uses persistent cookies, which are stored on your browser for a certain period of time after the end of the session, unless you delete them. Persistent cookies are used to save information, which is used between visits. These data allow websites to recognise that you are a returning user, and to respond accordingly.

Cookies can also be used to establish anonymised statistics about the browsing experience on our site. This website uses the open-source web analytics service Matomo. We use analytics cookies purely for internal research on how we can improve the service we provide for all our users. The cookies simply assess how you interact with our website – as an anonymous user (the data gathered does not identify you personally). Also, this data is not shared with any third parties or used for any other purpose. Furthermore, Matomo will only start tracking with these types of cookies once you have given your consent via the cookie banner you’ll see on the first page.
