A cookie is a quantity of data that a website, via the server on which it is hosted, sends to the visitors browser with the intention of storing these data on the visitors computer. The content of such a cookie can be short (e.g. EN for a cookie that remembers your language choice) or relatively long (e.g. IP addresses, shopping basket content, etc.).
Sometimes a cookie is placed and read by a party other than the website operator (so-called third party cookies). The best-known third party cookies are those for statistical data, such as Google Analytics cookies.
The next time you visit a specific website, the server can recognise the browser of the previous visitor and get access to the information that was previously stored on the visitors computer. Which information is saved and stored on the visitors computer by means of a cookie is entirely determined by the operator of the visited website.
Some cookies fulfil only technical purposes (e.g. a session cookie, which allows to keep track of the contents of a shopping basket when surfing an e-commerce site) while others contain content information (e.g. language choice, text fields, shopping basket content, etc.).
In short: on the one hand, cookies make surfing on the internet possible, and on the other hand they provide a better and easier surfing experience.
In order to offer you an optimal surfing experience, this site uses the following cookies:
Upon your first visit you have the possibility to accept or reject cookies, either via this page or via the bar at the top of each page on the website (button Accept).
You can always manage the cookies on your computer - via this site or a third party site - in your browser settings. To do so, please consult your browsers user manual (easy to consult using F1).
Please note that your browser may store such data because of your settings or because you once gave your permission to do so. However, such storage is completely alien to the use of this site; moreover, data stored in this way cannot be consulted by this site.
