1. What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that are sent to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies on Biotech Website do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences and generally improving your experience of a website.

If you decide to set the language, font-size or specific version of the Website (e.g. high-contrast), we use “user interface customization cookies.” Once set, you do not need to specify your preferences again on another visit to the Website.
If you use parts of the Website that require registration to access content, we will place an “authentication cookie” on your computer. This allows you to leave and return to these parts of the Website without re-authenticating yourself.

They count the number of visitors and tell us things about the visitors’ behaviour overall – such as identifying the search engine keywords that lead the user to the Website, the typical length of stay on the Website or the average number of pages a user views. For this purpose we place a “first party analytics cookie” on your computer.
