The use of cookies enables us to improve our website so that we know how many unique users visit and which pages are visited. By saving the website language, your login details, or the pages you have visited for statistics, it enables faster and more efficient navigation and eliminates the need to repeatedly enter the same information. This allows us to show what content is interesting to our users. With these improvements in mind we use Google Analytics, a statistical tool.
