Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.

Data collection and handling
If your web-browser automatically sends data like time and datum of access, URL of the referring site, recalled data, amount of data sent, type and version of the browser, system software as well as your IP-address, the data will be analysed for statistical purposes in order to improve the website. Any additional data will only be collected if the information is optional, for example during an enquiry or registration.
