To a limited extent, we also use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your device) which remain on your device and enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit. These cookies are stored on your hard drive and erased automatically after the specified time. They are saved for 1 month up to 10 years. This enables us to make our website more effective, secure and user-friendly, and to display information tailored specifically to your interests, for example.
