Cookies are small text files generated when you visit a website. They store data that may be useful for navigating the website further. Your data remains even when you switch to a different webpage and your use of the website can be analysed.
By using our website, you consent to the use and storage of cookies on your device. You can also look at our website without cookies.
But we recommend leaving the cookies function enabled, otherwise you may miss out on a great deal of information. Most browsers accept cookies automatically.
You have the option to control the acceptance of cookies yourself and, if you wish, to block them entirely by configuring your browser.
We should point out that any changes to the configuration apply only to the relevant browser. Should you use various browsers or change your device, you must make the same changes to your settings.

Below we explain the commonest types of cookies:
1. Session cookies
A session cookie is stored in your computer’s temporary memory for the duration of your visit to a website. This cookie contains a session ID, so as to avoid the need to login each time you leave one page for another. Session cookies are erased as soon as you leave a website or lose their validity when your session automatically expires.
2. Persistent cookies
A persistent cookie saves a file on your computer for the period scheduled in the expiration date. These cookies enable websites to remember your data and settings for your next visit. This results in faster, more user-friendly access, since it avoids e.g. the need for you to reselect language settings for our portal. Once the expiration date has lapsed, the cookie is erased automatically when you visit the website that generated it.
3. Third-party cookies
Third-party cookies are generated by a provider other than that of your website operator. For example, they can be used to collect data for advertising, user-defined content and web statistics.
Flash cookies are stored on your computer as data elements of websites when these are operated with Adobe Flash. Flash cookies have no time limit.
