What are cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of text that is sent to a browser by a website visited by the user. It makes it easy for the site to memorize information about your visit, such as your preferred language and other settings. This can make it easier for him to visit later and make the site more useful for him. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more complicated experience.

Why do we use cookies?

Cookies are used for many reasons. They are used, for example, to memorize user preferences when it comes to secure search, to calculate the number of visitors to a page, or to make it easier for the user to sign in to services and protect their data.

Website functionality and content

User sharing is used by visitors to recommend sites and content on social networks such as Facebook. Cookies store information about how visitors use the shared function – although not on an individual level – to improve the site. If you do not accept cookies, no information is stored. For some of the functions of our site, we may use third party vendors, for example, when you visit a page with embedded photos, videos or links to YouTube. These videos or links (and any other content from third party suppliers) may contain third party cookies and you may be consulted on the policies of such third party websites for information on the use of cookies.

How can I discard and delete cookies?

We will not use cookies to collect users’ personal data unless expressly provided. However, you can choose to reject or exclude cookies by changing your browser settings – for more details, see the “Help” feature in the browser. Note that most browsers automatically accept cookies, so if you do not want cookies to be used, you may need to delete or disable cookies actively. For information on using cookies in mobile browsers and for details on how to reject or delete such cookies, see the browser settings. Note, however, that if you refuse to use cookies, you may be able to visit our websites, but some of the features may not work properly.
