Cookie policy
In order to ensure the proper functioning of this website, we place cookies on your devices.

What are cookies?
A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a certain website. With the help of cookies, the website remembers your actions and preferences (such as username, language, font size and other preferences related to how the website displays) for a period of time so that it is not necessary to re-enter them every time you return to the website or browse its pages.

How do we use cookies?
On some of our pages, we use cookies that are not strictly necessary for viewing the website but will allow you to have a more pleasant browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies but, if you do, some aspects of that page may not work as intended. We use cookies on the website as follows:
•    a cookie for defining browser language;
•    cookies for tracking website visit statistics;
•    user security cookies for preventing authentication abuses and for protecting against CSRF hacking attacks;
•    a cookie for defining the display of a pop-up window at the bottom of the page and for activating or deactivating certain categories of cookies.

Updating your cookies
You can withdraw the consent you have given us by clicking on a particular category of cookies at any time.
A list of all cookies with their name, purpose and duration is given at the separate page on Updating cookies.

Personal data
Information related to cookies is not used to identify you and information about your browsing habits stays exclusively with us. We do not use cookies for any purposes other than those described here.

Third-party cookies
Sometimes, for statistical purposes, we also use external services, such as Google Analytics, for tracking the use of our pages. In this case, Google will send its cookies to your computer –so-called third-party cookies. This happens also, for example, whenever we use Google Maps.

How can you control cookies?
You can control and/or delete cookies as desired; most browser settings allow you to block any cookies from being stored. If you block cookies, however, you may need to adjust your settings manually every time you visit the website and certain services and functions may not be available. If you do not want to receive cookies on your computer, you can set your browser to notify you when it detects them or you can automatically reject them all. You can also delete any cookies you have already received. If you want to restrict or block cookies that have already been installed, you can do so in your browser settings. To find out how to do that, check the ‘Help’ function within your browser or visit the page www.aboutcookies.org, where you can find detailed instructions related to different browsers.
