Cookies are simple text files (not executable programmes) and pose no risk to your computer. No personal data is stored in the cookies used by Art of Technology AG.
So-called “session cookies” expire at the end of the browser session and can capture your activities during the browser session. In contrast to these, there are “permanent cookies” which are saved on your device and are able to capture your settings or activities on multiple websites.

You can set your browser either to receive our cookies or use our website without cookie functionality. Your browser may already be set to display a warning whenever it receives a cookie. As the identification cookie must be resent every time an individual page on our website is opened, this warning may be disruptive.
