A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can recognize you when you revisit and remember certain information about you. This can include which pages you have visited, choices you have made from menus, any specific information you have entered into forms and the time and date of your visit.
Applicable law states that we may store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other types of cookies we need your consent.

Types of Cookies
There are two main types of cookies according to the length of time they remain active:
Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session; that is, when you leave the site. Session cookies allow the website to recognize you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online shopping basket.
Persistent cookies: in contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your equipment between browsing sessions until expiry or deletion. They enable the website to “recognize” you on your return remember your preferences and tailor services to you.
Depending on the issuer of the cookies, they can also be classified into the following types:
Own Cookies: These are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the website editor itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: These are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the website editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
We currently use, and may use in the future, the following types of cookies on this website.
We use session cookies to help us maintain security and verify your details while you use the website as you navigate from page to page, which enables you to avoid having to re-enter your details each time you enter a new page.
We use persistent cookies to help us recognize you as a unique user when you return to our website so that you do not have to input your details multiple times as you move between our pages or services, or remember how you have customized your use of this site, such as your preferred currency and time zone, and collect and compile anonymous, aggregated information for statistical and evaluation purposes to help us understand how users use the website and help us improve the structure of our website.
As with first party cookies, you are able to block third party cookies through your browser settings.
