To ensure that our service is as userfriendly as possible we use so-called cookies.
A “cookie” is a small text file which a webserver sends to your browser when you visit a website. So-called “session cookies” expire at the end of the browser session and can capture your activities during the browser session. In contrast to these, there are “permanent cookies” which are saved on your terminal and these are able to capture your settings or activities on multiple websites.
Besides so-called “session cookies” which are deleted when you end your browser session, we put in place permanent cookies. Cookies are stored until deleted by the user.
It depends on your browser’s settings as to whether the cookie file is stored or deleted. If the file is stored, our webserver can recognise your terminal. Next time you visit the site or when you switch between functions requiring you to enter a pass-word, the cookie can save you re-entering information. This is how cookies make it easier for you to use websites requiring user input. Additionally, cookies can help us offer you the most personalised, optimised surfing experience, as long as you give us permission to do so.
That is unless you explicitly reject cookies and deactivate them as set out below:
You can set your browser either to receive our cookies or use our website without cookie functionality. In the latter case however your text entries in our form fields cannot be saved for future searches, and you will have to input your data again when you next visit our website. In this case we will also unfortunately not be able to present personally tailored content to you.
