What are cookies used for?

Cookies are used to adjust the content of web pages based on the user’s preference and to optimize the use of the website. They can also be used to create anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how the user uses the website, which in turn allows us to improve the structure and content – the anonymous tracking data can be provided to third party applications like Google Analytics. No personal identification of the user is ever stored.

The cookies also store a session variable with information about the user’s login status.

What types of cookies are we using?

There are two kinds of cookies being used – session cookies and permanent cookies. The first type are temporary files that will be stored on your device until you log out of the website or exit the browser (in case you were authenticated as a user). The latter files remain on your device until they expire – the expiration time is specified in the parameters of the individual cookies – or until they are manually deleted by you.

Cookies used by our partner websites are subject to their own privacy policies.
