Cookie Policy.

A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your terminal device and contains data such as your personal site settings and log-in information. This data file is generated and transmitted to you by the web server to which you have connected using your web browser. We in general set cookies to analyze user interest in our websites and help make them more user-friendly. You may in general access our websites without cookies as well. If you, however, wish to use the full functionality of our websites in the most user-friendly manner, you should accept the cookies that enable the use of certain functions or provide convenience features. The intended purpose of the cookies we use is shown in the list that follows.

By using our websites, you consent to the use of those cookies that your browser accepts based on your browser settings. The default setting on most browsers is to accept all cookies. You may, however, set your browser to notify you before cookies are accepted, to accept or reject only certain cookies, or to reject all cookies.

Please note that any changes you make to these settings only apply to the particular browser program in which you made them. If you use different browsers or different terminal devices, you have to change the settings for each browser and each device.

The most common types of cookies are explained below for your information:

  1. Session Cookies
    While you are using a website, a session cookie containing a session identifier is temporarily stored in your computer's memory, e.g. so that you do not need to log on again every time you change webpages. Session cookies are deleted when you log off or cease to be valid as soon as your session automatically expires.
  2. Permanent Cookies (Protocol Cookies)
    A permanent or protocol cookie stores a file on your computer for the duration defined by the file's expiration date. These cookies enable websites to remember your information and settings the next time you visit them. This speeds up your access and makes it more convenient, for instance because you do not need to adjust your language setting for our portal every time. The cookie is automatically deleted once its expiration date is reached when you visit the website that generated the cookie.
  3. Third Party Cookies
    Third party cookies stem from a provider who is not the operator of the website. They can be used to collect information for purposes of advertising, user-defined content, and web statistics.
  4. Flash Cookies
    Pieces of data that are stored on your computer by a website are referred to as flash cookies if Adobe Flash is used to operate them. Flash cookies have no time limit.
