What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file sent from a website to your web browser. A cookie cannot personally identify you; it only identifies the web browser installed on your computer, tablet, or internet-connected phone, which you use to visit various websites.
There are two primary types of cookies:
Persistent Cookies: These are stored on your computer for a specific period before they are deleted. They enable, for instance, a webpage to recognize your device’s IP address and, consequently, your browser each time you log in.
Session Cookies: These are temporarily stored in your device’s memory while you are on a webpage to ensure it functions correctly during your visit. Session cookies disappear when you close your browser.

This request for consent is presented to you in a cookie banner when you first open the Website. It remains in effect until you actively choose to either accept or decline the different categories of cookies.
The cookies on the Website primarily serve to:
- Enhance the functionality of our services.
