Definition of cookies

A cookie is a small text file containing information and a time stamp that the website requests to store on the visitor’s computer.

The browser saves the information in a special location on your computer and returns the information in the cookie to the website you visited at each request for pages/images from the website.

Two kinds of cookies

The cookies on this website are used to improve the user experience and optimize the website. There are two kinds of cookies:
• One is called a permanent cookie; it saves a file that remains on the visitor’s computer. It is used to adjust a website based on the visitor’s preferences, selections and interests, and for statistical monitoring.
• The other kind is called a session cookie. It is temporarily stored in the memory of the visitor’s computer while the visitor is on the website. Session cookies disappear when you close your browser.

Our website uses both session and permanent cookies. Regardless of what kind of cookie is used on this website, no personal information about the visitor is saved (such as e-mail address or name).
