We use cookies in some areas of the website, for example to detect our visitors’ preferences and to enable us to optimise the design of the website. This facilitates easier navigation and ensures that the website is as user-friendly as possible.

Cookies are small files that are stored on a visitor’s hard drive. Most of the cookies used on this website are “session cookies”. They are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow your device to recognise your browser during your next visit to the website.
