Privacy Policy and Cookies

Use of cookies

An “Internet Cookie” (also called a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on the computer, mobile device or other device from which a visitor accesses a website. The cookie is installed by a request issued by a web-server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (contains no software, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the visitor’s hard drive).

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Furthermore, the lifetime of a cookie is determined; technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a visitor returns to the website associated with that webserver.
