What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website.

Disabling tracking may interfere with your use of the website and the services provided on it. After your initial visit to the website we may change the cookies we use. Via this policy we commit to enabling you to always know who is placing cookies, for what purpose they are being set, and give you the means to disable them.
