We use them merely to make our services more user-friendly. Certain cookies remain saved on your device until you delete these. They enable us to recognise your browser next time you visit. If you do not want this to happen, you may use browser settings to inform you about the use of cookies, enabling you to permit this only on a case-by-case basis. However, we draw your attention to the fact that in this event you may possibly not be able to use all of the functions of the website in full.
