Cookies are small text files placed on your device to store data that can be recalled by a web server in the domain that placed the cookie. These files normally consist of letters and numbers that identify your computer, but sometimes it contains other information as well such as statistical or analytical data, user preferences such as language or preferred currency.
It is important to be aware of the difference between session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies will only exist until you close your browser. Permanent cookies have a longer lifespan and are not automatically deleted once you close your browser. We strive to serve cookies or allow the serving of cookies with a maximum lifespan of 2 years. Only in exceptional circumstances, such as for security purposes and where absolutely necessary, will serve a cookie longer than for 2 years.

A local storage is a file created by a website on your device. There are many different local storage files and cookies are just one type of them. As we are also using them, you should be aware of them, so you can block them or delete the data stored by them in case that you decide to do so. You can do that in “Browser local storage”. Some websites use the browser’s “sessionStorage” and “localStorage” to store data; and while “sessionStorage” is stored temporarily, the “localStorage” is persistent. You may erase them by deleting your browser’s history.
We do online advertisement, for which we cooperate with different third parties, but we always strive to work with companies that can be trusted and work in this area for some time already and follow the industry standards and codes of conduct. We also run analytics on our website, where we, in order to control the collection of data for analytical purposes, use software such as Google Analytics, Google AdWords and Google Webmaster Tools. For more information, you can check Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on (only for desktop), where you can see how you can prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but provide controls that allow you to block or delete them.
