Some of our web pa­ges use coo­kies. Cookies do not harm your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain any vi­ru­ses. Cookies help make our web­site mo­re user-fri­end­ly, ef­fi­ci­ent, and se­cu­re. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and saved by your brow­ser.

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led "ses­si­on coo­kies." They are au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly de­le­ted af­ter your vi­sit. Other coo­kies re­main in your device's me­mo­ry un­til you de­le­te them. These coo­kies make it pos­si­ble to re­co­gni­ze your brow­ser when you next vi­sit the site.

You can con­fi­gu­re your brow­ser to in­form you about the use of coo­kies so that you can de­ci­de on a ca­se-by-ca­se ba­sis whe­ther to ac­cept or re­ject a coo­kie. Alternatively, your brow­ser can be con­fi­gu­red to au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly ac­cept coo­kies un­der cer­tain con­di­ti­ons or to al­ways re­ject them, or to au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly de­le­te coo­kies when clo­sing your brow­ser.

If other coo­kies (such as tho­se used to ana­ly­ze your sur­fing be­ha­vi­or) are al­so stored, they will be trea­ted se­pa­r­a­te­ly in this pri­va­cy po­li­cy.
