“Cookies” (“cookies” or “cookies”) are small text files that a website can use to make the user experience even more effective.

All other types of cookies require the visitor’s permission. This website uses various cookies. Some of the cookies that appear on the website are placed by third party service providers.
Browsers allow you to change cookie settings. Most browsers automatically accept cookies by default, but this can be changed to prevent them from being accepted automatically after setting.

- CHECKING AND DISABLING COOKIE SETTINGS
Modern browsers allow you to change “cookie settings”. Some browsers automatically accept “cookies” by default, but this setting can also be changed to prevent the visitor from automatically accepting it for the future.
In case of migration, the browser will continue to offer the option to “set cookies” each time.
Even if “cookies” are enabled, the Data Controller will not remember any IDs or passwords. Even if the “cookies” are accepted, the visitor can use the services in complete security.
Because “cookies” are intended to support and facilitate the usability and processes of the website, disabling “cookies” does not guarantee that the visitor will be able to use all the features of the website to the full.
In this case, the website may work differently in the browser than planned.
