A cookie is a small data set being stored on your device and contains data such as your personal page settings, an ID, or login information. This dataset is generated by the web server that you used to establish a connection via your web browser and is sent to you. In general, we use cookies to analyse interest in our web pages and to make them more user-friendly. In principle, you can access our web pages without cookies.
