What is a cookie and why do we use them?

A cookie is a small text snippet in your web browser that is loaded onto your computer when you visit a certain website. In some cases, our websites also use third-party cookies.

Cookies allow us to make the website operation more efficient and offer a better web browsing experience to the visitor. Thanks to cookies, we can automatically tailor the content of the website to fit your settings and needs. For example, the website administrator uses persistent cookies about the user's preferred language choice. With this, the user does not need to select their language choice again each time they visit the website. We also use, for example, session cookies, which are temporarily stored on the user's computer only for the duration of the website usage.

Cookies also provide us with user statistics, which allows us to measure and evaluate the performance of the website. We use the information obtained to improve the usability and content of the website.

User privacy is important to us, and we want users to feel safe when visiting our websites. Thus, users can change their choices regarding cookies in the cookie settings or in the browser settings at any time. To remove previously installed cookies from your device, users may need to change their browser settings or manually delete cookies in some cases. In such cases, we cannot guarantee the expected or correct functioning of our services. More information about managing and limiting cookies can be found at:
