What are cookies?
This document informs users about the technologies that help this website to achieve the purposes described below. Such technologies allow us to access and store information (for example by using a Cookie) or use resources (for example by running a script) on a user’s device as they interact with this website.
For simplicity, all such technologies are defined as “Trackers” within this document – unless there is a reason to differentiate.
For example, while Cookies can be used on both web and mobile browsers, it would be inaccurate to talk about Cookies in the context of mobile apps as they are a browser-based Tracker. For this reason, within this document, the term Cookies is only used where it is specifically meant to indicate that particular type of Tracker.
Some of the purposes for which Trackers are used may also require the user’s consent. Whenever consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.
This website uses Trackers managed directly by us (so-called “first-party” Trackers) and Trackers that enable services provided by a third-party (so-called “third-party” Trackers). Unless otherwise specified within this document, third-party providers may access the Trackers managed by them.
The validity and expiration periods of Cookies and other similar Trackers may vary depending on the lifetime set by the Owner or the relevant provider. Some of them expire upon termination of the user’s browsing session.
In addition to what’s specified in the descriptions within each of the categories below, users may find more precise and updated information regarding lifetime specification as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other Trackers – in the linked privacy policies of the respective third-party providers or by contacting us.

It is recommended to log out from the respective services in order to make sure that the processed data on this website isn’t being connected back to the user’s profile.
How to manage preferences and provide or withdraw consent
There are various ways to manage Tracker related preferences and to provide and withdraw consent, where relevant:
Users can manage preferences related to Trackers from directly within their own device settings, for example, by preventing the use or storage of Trackers. Additionally, whenever the use of Trackers is based on consent, users can provide or withdraw such consent by setting their preferences within the cookie notice or by updating such preferences accordingly via the relevant consent-preferences widget, if available.
It is also possible, via relevant browser or device features, to delete previously stored Trackers, including those used to remember the user’s initial consent. Other Trackers in the browser’s local memory may be cleared by deleting the browsing history.
