Cookies are short text files that are sent to your browser by your visited websites.

Visiting a website would have been much more difficult without them. Cookies do not provide us access to your computer or your data in any way, except for the data you want to share. They enable the website to remember the information about your visit, e.g. to save your safe search preselection, to show relevant ads, to tell us the number of visitors on our website or to simplify the registration into new services and protect your data.

Your next visit of this website will therefore be easier and more productive.
