What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit the same website from the same device, the cookie and its information are either sent back to the originating website (first-party cookies) or to another website to which it belongs (third-party cookies). In doing so, the website can detect that it has already been opened before using this browser, and in some cases it will vary the content it shows.


Some cookies are extremely useful because they can improve your user experience when you return to a website you have already visited, assuming that you are using the same device and the same browser as before. If so, cookies will remember your preferences, will know how you use the website, and will adapt the content you are shown so that it is more relevant to your personal interests and needs.

First-party cookies on this website that do not require consent
Cookies that are essential, also known as 'strictly necessary', enable features without which you would not be able to use the website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by this website and are therefore known as first-party cookies. They are only saved on your computer while you are actually browsing the website. For example, strictly necessary cookies are used to ensure that what you see on the screen corresponds to the data volume that your current Internet connection can handle. Also, these cookies facilitate a switch from http to https when you change pages, so that the security of data transmitted is maintained. A cookie of this kind is also used to store your decision about the use of cookies on a website. Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies.

Third-party cookies on this website that require consent
Cookies which, in strictly legal terms, are not absolutely essential in order to use a website do nevertheless fulfill important functions. Without these cookies, features that enable a website to be used easily, such as pre-completed forms, will no longer be available. Likewise, settings you make, such as language choices, will no longer be saved, thus you will be asked about this every time you change pages. As well as that, the website will no longer have a way of presenting offers to you that are tailored to you personally.

How to reject or delete your cookies
This website has integrated content belonging to third parties. These third-party providers can place cookies while you visit the website, and in doing so, can obtain information about the fact that you have visited the website. Please visit the websites belonging to those third-party providers if you need more information about how they use cookies. If you have decided not to provide your consent to the use of cookies that require it, or if you have revoked that consent, then you will only be provided with website features whose use does not require such cookies. Areas of the website that can potentially incorporate content from third parties, and which therefore place third-party cookies, will not be available to you. If you do not want to accept cookies at all, then you can configure that in your browser.

Rejecting cookies
You can always reject cookies on your computer, tablet or phone by changing your browser settings. Where these settings can be found depends on the type of browser you are using. If you do change the settings, please be aware that there will be some functions and services that you cannot use because they rely on the website being able to remember the choices you have made.

You can choose to not receive cookies from Google Analytics here.
