If a web browser accesses the Web site again, the server can easily and quickly retrieve this information and respond to the data stored in it.

This includes targeted ads on the site of ski resorts, creating a site’s digital identity, tracking its website behavior, and processing forms on websites. With cookies we can continually improve and refine not only our websites but also the services and offers we provide to all our clients, visitors to our website.
