Certain cookies that we use are required to enable you to navigate our website and use certain features, such as access to protected areas and content for registered users.
We also use functional cookies to store information about the settings you have selected and to tailor our website to your individual needs; this includes, for example, the selection of language and region or information that you have already taken part in a particular survey. This information is anonymous and will not be used for any other purposes than those described here.

How you can control cookies
You can usually see which cookies are on your computer via the settings of your browser, delete individual cookies or deactivate cookies from selected or all websites. When all cookies are deleted, all preference settings are deleted. This also applies to the deactivation of cookies you have already made, as the deactivation itself is linked to an opt-out cookie. Web beacons cannot be removed or blocked because they are an immediate part of the content of the websites and no information is stored on your computer. However, disabling cookies prevents web beacons from recording your usage patterns because web beacons work in conjunction with cookies, and the web beacon will only record an anonymous visit. For more information on how to disable or filter cookies via your browser menu, please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org/ or http://www.cookiecentral.com/faq/.
