What are the other local storage mechanisms?
Persistent local storage (long term) and session local storage (persists until you close your browser) are mechanisms that allow the website to store small data in the browser for the website's use without this data being automatically sent to the server on each request.
How can you manage your preferences?
In preference management you are given more specific information about these mechanisms that can be stored in your browser. In the cases of the categories "Statistics" and "Third Party Content" you will be asked for your express consent for their use.
Your usage preferences will be valid for 180 days since your last visit, but you can change your consent at any time by accessing the settings.
If the MFA makes changes to this website that include changing the set of cookies and other local storage mechanisms used, you will be asked again to set your usage preferences.
