Some features use something called “session ID”. To enable this a server sends a session cookie with a unique ID number to your computer each time you visit the site.
Session cookies are used for the time you are active on the site. Without it, for example, you could not leave and later return the shopping dialog without having to fill in all the information again. A “session cookie” is only temporarily saved in your computer’s work memory and is automatically removed when you close your browser.
A common misconception about cookies is that it is a kind of virus and that cookies can detect personal information from a computer or that cookies are available to send spam. Nothing of this is true, cookies are just data.
Most browsers are set to allow cookies to be stored. If you do not want to allow cookies, you can either set your browser to get a warning every time a website wants to place a cookie on your computer or completely turn off cookies. For information on how to do this, see the browser’s help function. If you choose to turn off cookies, our website will not work as well as you expect.
