General information about cookies and how they are used
Cookies are a piece of data sent from a web site and stored in your browsers memory.
Cookies can be required to allow a web to function properly as web sites are stateless (they don't remember user information from one internal page to another) but sometimes they are used to track user actions within one web or across multiple webs in order to collect usage information or identify interests and map behavior to be able to offer relevant advertisements.
When webs use the Cookie Consent widget they offer you the choice to allow or deny certain cookie categories which helps protect your privacy. Below is a description on the most common cookie categories.
Necessary cookies are used to make a web site function properly; they are generally not used for tracking and are not shared between webs. These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site may not work then.
There are a number of ways for you to manage cookies and other tracking technologies. Through your browser settings, you can accept or decline cookies or set your browser to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. You should be aware that you will not be able to use all our interactive features if you set your browser to disable cookies entirely.
You can delete any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser. The various browsers provide different procedures to manage your settings. Click on any of the browser links below for instructions.
Analytical cookies are not necessary but are used to collect valuable information on how a web site is being used, identify issues and figure out what needs to be improved on the site and what content is useful. The information collected is in most cases anonymous.
Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites to profile user behavior and allow publishers to display relevant advertisements. Data will be shared with Google and, depending on the ads that serve, data may be shared with any of the used ad technology providers
You can opt-out of each cookie category (except necessary cookies) by clicking on the cookie settings
