But what is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that may be stored on your computer when you visit a website. It stores information, recording your choice of language, for instance.
When you visit the website again, it tells the website it’s you. That way, the website recognises your browser and can remember your preferences, for example.
You can learn more about cookies and how they work in general by visiting information sites such as allaboutcookies.org and youronlinechoices.com.
If you refuse certain cookies, parts of our website may either not work at all or not function properly.
We may use three types of cookies on our site:
Essential and strictly necessary cookies
These cookies allow you to browse this website and use its features. Without them, services such as shopping carts and the issuing of your invoice when you make a purchase cannot work.
We use Joomla! to keep the content of our website up to date. This software uses functional cookies. These are also necessary for the proper functioning of our website. Unfortunately, it is not technically possible to refuse these cookies if you want to visit our website.
Performance or analytical cookies
We, or the service providers we use, may use performance cookies on your device. The information we collect with performance cookies is used to improve the browsing experience on our website or for statistical purposes.
Our performance cookies are used to generate aggregated, anonymous information about how users (including you) use this site and its features. The information collected is used to improve how users use and navigate through our website, both in general and for statistical purposes. Our performance cookies do not collect personally identifiable information about you, but if you have an account with us, the information collected with our performance cookies may be associated with your account.
When you visit our site, we may also allow third parties to place performance cookies on your device by means of iframes that are located on this website. These third-party performance cookies do not collect personally identifiable information.
You can delete or manage the performance cookies that are on your device at any time. Below we tell you how to manage and, if you wish, delete cookies.
Cookies for functional purposes
We, or our suppliers, may place functional cookies on your device. We do not share the information collected through these functional cookies with any advertisers or third parties.
Our functional cookies allow the system to remember the choices you make (the language you preferred, your country, and so on). They allow us to offer you personalised features. The information our cookies collect is anonymous, but if you have an account with us, the information we collect through our functional cookies may be associated with your account.
We do not collect information about your browsing behaviour on websites that we do not operate.
If you delete these functional cookies, any preferences or settings you have chosen will not be retained for future visits.
