To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don't have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
For more information, check out Wikipedia's nice page on cookies.
A session-cookie is used when you view the blog pages. If you were allowed to edit the blog pages, you would also see login-related cookies.
While these cookies are needed for the functionality of the blog pages, it is not strictly necessary to keep them between visits. If you like, delete them, or why not let your browser do it for you at the end of every session?
Our product videos are hosted on YouTube which injects some of their cookies since they like to track your viewing history, or store your play-back preferences.
The "tweet", "like" or "linked-in" buttons include third-party content which is loaded from Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn. Again with cookies. There is a risk that these companies may track your page views (across multiple web sites), especially if any of these cookies can identify you from a previous session (even from a different website).
Other than that, there is no third-party advertising on any of our pages. No online behavioural tracking is employed. No Google analytics.
The third-party cookies from the embedded social services require your consent, which is why it was necessary to make you aware about the use of these cookies.
If you do not wish to be exposed to these cookies, please close this browser window and delete the cookies.
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish - for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
