If you first send a response to our website, that response will be submitted to the web administrator for approval. We do this to keep spammers out of the website. Once your response has been approved, it will be displayed on the website. These cookies ensure that your next response does not have to be approved first by the web administrator.

This allows us to see which pages are visited and from which platform (Windows, Android, iOS, as well as whether traffic comes from fixed or mobile devices), from which country and in which town the service provider is located. We can also see the traffic flows within the website. This allows us to make improvements and remove any unused pages. We cannot see who the visitors are.
