How does it work?
Every time you load the website, your browser checks if a cookie associated with this website exists (i.e. contains the name of the website). If it does, your browser sends the information saved in this cookie back to the website. This allows the website to recognize that it had already been opened in this browser before, and some of the displayed content may vary based on this information.
Please note: None of the cookies used on our website collect information that can be used to identify you personally.
How you can manage and delete cookies
You can block or delete cookies in the browser settings. In order to manage cookies, most browsers allow you to accept or reject all cookies, or to accept only specific types of cookies. You can also adjust your settings so you will be asked every time a website wants to store a cookie. The ways in which you can specifically manage and delete cookies depend on your particular browser. Every browser differs in this respect. To find out, you can simply use the integrated help function in your browser. Alternatively, you can find additional information regarding various browsers here.
