Cookies are small text files stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies serve a number of purposes. They help the website remember your settings, e.g. language, font size or other settings that you set up on your computer to view our website, so that when you visit the website again you don’t need to set them up again.

Some cookies are necessary for website functioning (e.g. the login cookie, cookie for the web store shopping cart content), some are intended to improve the user experience (e.g. storing of user’s preferences) and some are used for monitoring website visits, which helps the website administrator improve the website and the user experience with it. Some cookies enable user tracking across several websites.
