What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small quantity of data stored on your computer or mobile device by the websites you visit. Cookies are often used to operate websites or to operate them more efficiently, and to transmit information to the operators of the website.
What does a cookie do?
A cookie may store information in your browser or display information via your browser. This information may relate to you, your user settings or your device, and is mainly used to make the website work in the expected manner. A cookie allows the website to remember your actions and settings (such as login details, language and other display settings) for a certain period of time, so that you do not have to enter them each time you visit the website again or switch between different pages.
The information does not directly identify you, but it may provide you with a web experience that is more tailored to you.
If you disable our cookies, this may affect your user experience and the services we provide to you while you are visiting our web pages.
For more information on how to block cookies, see Section 8 (Managing Your Cookie Settings).
If you visit our web pages again, we will be able to recognise you even if we do not know your identity.
Cookies set by maxon or third parties
In many cases, these cookies may make use of your device's processing or storage capacity. Some of these cookies are set by maxon itself, others by third parties. Some remain active only for the duration of your browser session, others may remain active on your device for a longer period of time.
Internet browsers give you the ability to change your cookie settings, for example to block certain types of cookies or files. You can therefore block cookies by changing the settings in your browser that allow you to refuse all or specific cookies.
If you use your browser settings to block all cookies, you may not be able to access our web pages or parts thereof, as some of them may be function cookies.
