To achieve uniform representation of fonts, this website uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a website page, the browser loads the necessary website pages in the browser’s cache, to ensure that texts and fonts are displayed correctly. Your browser must establish a direct connection to Google’s servers for this purpose. Consequently, Google is made aware that our website is being accessed via your IP address. We use Google Web Fonts for the purpose of ensuring a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. If your browser does not support web fonts, a font located on your computer is used.

COOKIES VIA WORDFENCE

Wordfence provides a function for a visitor to circumvent country blocking by accessing a hidden web address. This cookie helps to track users who are to be allowed to circumvent country blocking. When a hidden web address defined by the website administrator is visited, this cookie is then set to verify that the user may access the website from a country which is restricted through country blocking. This cookie setting will apply to all visitors who are aware of the web address that permits bypass of standard country blocking. This cookie setting does not apply to those who are not aware of the hidden URL address for circumvention of country blocking. This cookie provides the site owner with a way of allowing access by certain users from blocked countries, even though the country itself has been blocked.

HOW YOU CAN MANAGE OR BLOCK COOKIES

You can change the settings in your browser or your device to manage the use and scope of cookies. Use the help function in your browser or device to learn more about how to change these settings. For example, you can choose to block all cookies, only accept first-party cookies, or delete cookies when you close your browser.
