Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons and pixels (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier enabling us to recognise when someone has visited our websites or opened an email that we have sent to them. This allows us, for example, to record the traffic patterns of users from one page within our websites to another, to understand whether you are visiting our websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance and to measure the success of our online advertising campaigns (e.g. to tell whether you have found us via advertising or marketing we have placed with third party sites). In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
The option to activate, deactivate or remove cookies can be filled out at the browser level. Follow the instructions in your browser. Deactivating cookies does not remove all cookies from your browser. You have to do this yourself in your browser. For more information on cookies, including the cookies placed on your device and how to manage and delete them, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. By activating the settings in your browser, you block cookies by not noticing their activity. However, if you set your browser settings to block all cookies, you will only be able to use part of our website and some parts of our website may not function properly.
The types of cookies used on this website can be divided into four categories: basic cookies, analysis cookies, customization cookies and advertising cookies.
Essential cookies: These types of cookies are necessary so that you can navigate the website and use its functions, for example, to access secure areas of the website. These cookies cannot be deactivated as they are very important to our web service.
Analytics cookies: These types of cookies collect information about how you use a website, e.g. For example, what pages you visit most often, what searches you perform, and whether you get any error messages from the pages you visit. Analytics cookies are linked to your browser and can be linked to individual information that we have about you. Customization cookies: Our website uses this type of cookie to help you recognize when you return to our website, to enable web widgets to work properly and possibly to collect additional information about you. This helps us to adapt our content, to greet you by name and to save your settings.
Advertising cookies: These types of cookies record your access to our website, the pages you have visited, and the links you follow. This information is used by us to personalize our website and the advertisement that matches your interests. This information can be passed on to third parties for advertising purposes. You can check and remove the above-mentioned cookies (in addition to the 1st type) via your browser settings.
Third-party cookies are small pieces of data that are created by websites other than the one a user is currently visiting. They are typically used to track a user's browsing behavior across different websites for various purposes, such as advertising, analytics, and user profiling. Third-party cookies are often associated with online advertising and marketing strategies..
