What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit it.

This means you don't have to re-enter them every time you return to the website or navigate from one page to another.

Cookies can also contain personal data, such as your IP address. Therefore, we store cookies only if you have explicitly allowed it in the cookie settings on our website. You can revoke your consent for the use of cookies at any time, with future effect, by adjusting your browser's security settings accordingly.

An exception is made for cookies that are technically essential for the operation of our website. Without them, you cannot visit or navigate our website. Therefore, these cookies are generally enabled by default.

You also have the option to generally disable cookies in your browser at any time. This prevents the storage of cookies on your device. Please note that the general disabling of cookies can lead to malfunctions in using our website.

What Is the Lifespan of a Cookie?

Cookies are managed by web servers. The lifespan of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed.
