A cookie is a short text file stored on your computer. Web pages use cookies to remember you and save your choices. Cookies cannot contain code and therefore do not lead to security threats such as viruses or spyware.

Only the site that has set a cookie can read their own cookie. There are several different types of cookies:

Session cookies help the site keep track of and recognize your browser. Session cookies are deleted when you close your browser.

Fixed cookies are stored on your computer which allows the site to recognize you on a return visit. It stores information so that, for example, some messages are only displayed once.

We also use third-party cookies to send data to partners who help us with traffic measurement. It allows us to improve our websites and dynamically customize our content.

If you do not want to allow cookies to be stored on your computer, you can turn this option off in your browser's security settings. You will then not be able to use some features on many websites.

You can also make a setting in your browser that alerts each time a cookie pops up and decide on a case-by-case basis whether you want to allow it or not.

Many browsers also have features for browsing anonymously or incognito. All information, including all cookies, will be discarded when you close your browser.
