Cookies

Our website uses cookies (a small file of letters and numbers that we place on your computer). These cookies allow us to distinguish you, in an anonymous form, from other users of our website. This helps us provide you with a good experience when you browse the website. The cookies we use are either analytical cookies, which allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it, or functionally necessary cookies for the website to operate. This helps us improve the way our website works, for example by ensuring that users find what they are looking for easily.

Some cookies are essential to ensure our website works for you in the best possible way. You may delete and block all cookies from the website by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies, but you may then not be able to access all or parts of our website.
