In order to ensure this website functions properly, we sometimes store small files – known as "cookies" – on your device. This is a common feature of most large websites.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website leaves behind on your computer, tablet or smartphone whenever you visit the website. This means that the portal can "remember" certain entries and settings (e.g. login, language, font size and other display preferences) for a certain period of time, and you do not need to reimplement these every time you visit or navigate through the website.
