Cookies are small text files placed automatically on the user’s computer or mobile device when visiting a website. The user’s Internet browser stores cookies. Cookies contain basic information about the user’s use of the Internet, but do not usually identify you personally.

Essential cookies

These cookies are necessary to help the user to access and visit our Website, as well as to use all its features.

Google Analytics browser “opt-out”

To provide users with a greater choice about how their data is collected by Google Analytics, Google developed the Google Analytics Browser Opt-out Add-on. The add-on communicates with the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) to indicate that information about the website’s visit should not be sent to Google Analytics. The Google Analytics Browser Opt-out does not prevent information from being sent to the website itself or to other web analytics services. Learn more about Google Analytics Brower Opt-out extra.
