The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. Unlike transient cookies, persistent cookies are not deleted automatically when the browser is closed. You can also delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

Objection rights against the creation of these user profiles must be directed to the third party provider.
