Why this website uses cookies

Cookies cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • Enabling the website to recognize your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task.
  • Recognizing that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested.
  • Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast.
  • Analyzing data to help us understand how you use the website so we can improve it.
