What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file, a website that you visit, saves on your computer, or any other means of communication that you use, like a tablet, smartphone or similar device (when using the word “computer” below we refer also to tablet, smartphone or similar device) and which enables identification of you as a visitor to a website.

This way, the offers shown on our website can be adapted to you specifically.
There are two types of cookies; one type is more persistent and the other type is temporary (so-called session cookies). Persistent cookies save a text file during a longer period of time on your computer, have a definite expiry date and are, for example, used for functions which inform you what is new since you last visited the website. This cookie is deleted from your computer when the expiry date for the cookie in question has passed and you revisit the website that placed the cookie on your computer. Temporary cookies are stored temporarily on your computer during the time you visit a website and are used to, for example, keep track on what language you have chosen for the website. Temporary cookies will disappear as soon as you close your web browser.
