We respect the privacy of visitors using (our “website”). This cookie policy provides you with clear and comprehensive information about the cookies we use and the purposes for using them.

(a) What are cookies?

Cookies are files or pieces of information that may be stored on your computer (or other internet enabled devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit this Website. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long the cookie will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number. You can change the cookie settings that will be placed when you visit our website by changing the settings on your browser or by visiting the Cookie Preference Centre by clicking on the Cookie button.

Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website. Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal data that Ontex stores about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. For further information on how your personal data is processed, please view our Privacy Policy.

(b) Key concepts

First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time.

Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie. They will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date)

Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

(c) What types of cookies does the Website use and for what purposes?

The cookies used on our site are categorised as follows:

  • Strictly necessary cookies;
  • Functional cookies;
  • Performance cookies;
  • Analytic cookies;
  • Advertisement cookies.

The tables below summarises the different types of cookies ONTEX uses on the Website, together with their respective purposes and duration.

ONTEX uses a number of suppliers that may also set cookies on your device on our behalf when you visit the Website to allow them to deliver the services they are providing. If you would like more information about these cookies, as well as information about how to opt-out of receiving such cookies, please see their privacy policies listed below.

When you visit the Website, you may receive cookies from third party websites or domains. ONTEX does not control the placing of these cookies and you should check the relevant third party’s website for more information about these cookies. The relevant third party is responsible for providing you with information regarding the cookies they place and obtaining your consent before placing cookies on your device.

1. Analytic Cookies

2. Performance Cookies

1. XSRF-TOKEN (from Similar to the XSRF-TOKEN cookie mentioned earlier for ``, this cookie is also used for security purposes to prevent Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. It ensures that every request made to the server from a form or interactive element on the website is accompanied by a unique, session-specific token. The server verifies this token to confirm the legitimacy of the request, thus safeguarding the website and its users from unauthorized actions. This cookie is set to expire on 19th January 2024.

2. orizonondemandsession (from This appears to be a session cookie specific to the Orizon on Demand platform. Session cookies are essential for maintaining a consistent and secure user session on a website. They track user actions and preferences throughout their visit, ensuring that their interactions (like logins, language preferences, or progress in a session) are remembered and remain consistent. This is particularly important for platforms that require user authentication or have a personalised user interface, like Ontex does. The expiration for this cookie is also set to 19th January 2024.

d) How can you control, delete or withdraw your consent to the use of cookies ?

When you first navigate to our website, you are asked to provide your consent to cookies.  You can choose to provide or withhold your consent in relation to each of the purposes for which cookies are deployed (except for strictly necessary cookies).   Following your initial consent, you can later withdraw your consent at any time.

More specifically, you can change your cookie settings by going to the Cookie Preference Centre by clicking on the Cookie button.

If you wish to withdraw your consent to ONTEX’ use of cookies on this Website, or if you wish to delete or control the placing of cookies on your computer, you can also change your browser settings to block cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent to your device. There are a number of ways to manage cookies. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about how to adjust or modify your browser settings at:

If you disable the cookies that the Website uses, this may impact your experience while on the Website, for example you may not be able to visit certain areas of the Website or you may not receive personalised information when you visit the Website.

You can also delete cookies already stored on your computer.

Again, doing this may have a negative impact on the usability of many websites.

(e) Update to the current Cookies Policy

In the event that ONTEX modifies its practices regarding cookies, these modifications shall be incorporated into an updated version of the present policy. We will also inform you of these modifications by updating the date of entry into force at the top of this policy.
