Cookies are small data files sent from visited websites to the browser of the user’s terminal, where they are stored. Cookies carry information over from one site visit to the next, often to give users a personalized or continuous experience or to keep a user from having to provide the same information repeatedly, etc. While browsing a website, users may receive “first-party”
cookies from the owner of the website, as well as cookies which are sent by different web servers or service providers (so called “third-party” cookies).

Cookies can serve several different functions - technical, analytic, or profiling cookies.

Technical cookies
Technical cookies are used for the core functions of the Website. Session cookies, for example, allow users to log in or fill out an order or contact form. These are necessary to provide services that have been explicitly requested by the user. Session cookies are not persistently stored in the user’s computer and are cancelled when the browser is closed. They are strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) required to allow safe and effcient browsing.

In order to install these cookies no prior consent by users is required.
