Introduction

For a better user experience, this website stores small text files – cookies – on your computer. This practice is present on at least 90% of websites globally. According to the European Union directive from May 2011, we are required to seek your consent before storing cookies. By using this website, you agree to the use of cookies. You can still browse our site by blocking cookies, but some features will be limited.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a file that a website you visit saves on your computer, notifying it that the “old” user has reconnected, remembering their settings. Cookies record your preferences, input them into online forms, and store information about logged-in users.

Information can only be stored if the user permits it – websites cannot access information that the user has not provided and cannot access other files on the user’s computer. Cookies do not contain any personal data that could identify you. Users can change their settings to choose whether to allow or reject requests to save cookies, automatically delete saved cookies when closing the web browser, and more.

How to disable cookies?

By disabling cookies, you decide whether to allow their storage on your computer. You can control and configure cookie settings in your web browser. For information on cookie settings, select the web browser you use:

  • Internet Explorer 8 or newer
  • FireFox 3.5 or newer
  • Google Chrome 10 or newer
  • Safari 2 or newer
  • Opera 10.5 or newer

By blocking cookies, you can still browse the websites, but certain functions will not be available to you.

What are persistent cookies?

Persistent or saved cookies are stored on the disk (your computer) and remain there even after closing the web browser. They store data such as login names and passwords, so you don’t have to log in each time you visit a particular website.

What are session cookies?

Session cookies, as their name suggests, are temporarily stored on the disk and are deleted after closing the web browser. They allow websites to store temporary data such as items in the shopping cart.

What are local cookies / first party cookies?

First party cookies come from the website that the user is browsing and can be either permanent or temporary. Websites use these cookies to store information that they will reuse the next time the user visits the site.

What are third party cookies?

Third party cookies originate from other, partner websites you visit. Third parties can collect data about users from different websites and use it for marketing and analytical purposes.

We use temporary cookies – these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically deleted) when you close the web browser.

Several external services store limited cookies for users. These cookies are not set by this website, but some are necessary for the proper functioning of certain features that make it easier for users to access content. Currently, we allow:

We use Facebook Pixel provided by Facebook, Inc. (1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA – www.facebook.com – “Facebook”) on our website. Facebook Pixel allows tracking user behavior after they are redirected to one of our websites by clicking on a Facebook ad. This process is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and may help optimize future advertising efforts. The collected data is anonymous, so we cannot draw conclusions about the identity of users, and we do not send any personal data to Facebook. However, Facebook stores and processes data and may link it to the corresponding user profile, and Facebook may use the data for its advertising purposes in accordance with its Data Use Policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can enable Facebook and its partners to show ads within and outside of Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for this purpose. If you are a Facebook user and do not want Facebook to collect your data through Facebook Pixel and link it to your user data stored on Facebook, you can deactivate Facebook Pixel here. The contradiction applies to the browser you are using.
