At the moment, we use the following cookies:
The first two cookies are essential cookies (to protect forms and to keep session information for logged in users), for which we don't need your permission. The last cookie is only saved when a user chooses for this option.
As a result of the GDPR legislation, websites from the EU are obliged to provide information about the cookies used and request permission when a non-essential cookie is placed on your disk. This policy informs you clearly (and completely) about which cookies we use and why we do this.
Since we do not use non-essential cookies, you will not see a cookie banner to enter preferences.

Additionally, you can resolutely block all cookies by ticking the settings for refusing cookies in your browser. However, if you do this, it will result in you no longer being able to use the website.
