Version: 2022-05-24

To provide a great product experience and for certain functions, we use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device. You can find an overview of all cookies we use, their purpose, retention period and usage class below.

1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that uniquely identify your browser or device. The cookie file is stored on your browser. When you return to that website (or visit websites that use the same cookies) these websites recognize the cookies and your browsing device.

Cookies do many different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your experience. Cookies can tell us, for example, whether you have visited our Services before.

2. Are there different types of cookies?

There are different types of cookies, including first party cookies (which are served directly by us to your computer or device) and third party cookies (which are served by a third party on our behalf). Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Cookies can remain on your device for different periods of time. Some cookies are session cookies, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are permanent cookies, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. They can be used to recognise your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.

For example, we use cookies to tailor content and information that we may send or display to you and otherwise personalize your experience while interacting with our Services and to otherwise improve the functionality of the Services.
  • Performance cookies help us to measure traffic and usage data and to analyze how our Services are used in order to provide you with a better user experience and maintain, operate and improve our Services. These cookies may be set by us or third-party providers whose services we have added to our websites and apps-
