About Cookies

In order for this internet portal to function properly, we some­times place small files — so-called cookies — on your device. This is common practice on most major web­sites. What are cookies? A cookie is a small text file that a web portal leaves on your com­puter, tablet com­puter or smart­phone when you visit it. This allows the portal to “remember” certain entries and set­tings (e.g. login, lan­guage, font size and other display pref­er­ences) over a certain period of time, and you do not need to enter them again each time you visit and nav­igate the portal. How do we use cookies? On our sites, we use cookies to remember your screen display pref­er­ences , e.g. con­trast and font size your par­ti­cip­ation, if any, in a survey on the use­fulness of the content (so that you are not prompted again by a pop-up window to answer) your decision to (or not to) use cookies on this portal.
