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 make them again each time you visit the portal or navigate through it.
- your screen display preferences, e.g. contrast and font size
- your possible participation in a survey on the usefulness of the content (so that you are not prompted to answer again by a pop-up window)
- your decision to use (or not to use) cookies on this portal.
Accepting cookies is not absolutely necessary for the use of the portal, but it makes surfing more pleasant. You may block or delete cookies, but this may affect some features of this portal.
