This site uses cookies. A cookie is a small text file we place on your machine to help our site provide you a better experience. In general, cookies are used to store user preferences, to store information for things like shopping carts, and to provide anonymous tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics.

There are different types of cookies. Session cookies are temporary cookies that are stored in the user's Internet browser until the browser window is closed and the session cookies are deleted. Permanent or persistent cookies are used for repeated visits and stored in the user's browser for a predefined time. First-party cookies are set by the website the user visits, and only the website that sets them may read information from these cookies. Third-party cookies are set by organisations that are not operators of the website that the user visits, but their contents are only available to the company that sets them. These cookies are used by advertising companies, for example.
