You can assemble all the brochures and publications that you would like to order in the shopping basket. The ordering procedure consists of four steps:
You can cancel the ordering procedure at any time by clicking the "delete shopping basket" button.
The BMBF uses so-called session cookies so that you can order brochures on every page of its website and your order can be assembled in a shopping basket. Session cookies are small pieces of information which a web server can store with the visitor's web browser. The session cookie contains a randomly generated identification number, a so-called session-ID. Furthermore, it also contains details of its origin and life span. These cookies can also store other data. Your order is assembled in your shopping basket using your session ID.
Other servers use permanent cookies in order to be able to recognize visitors even after a longer period of time. This data is then stored as a text file on the hard drive of the visitor's computer. By contrast, the session cookies used by the BMBF are deleted when you end your session.
Your shopping basket will be emptied if you close the browser window or visit another website. Items which have been placed in the shopping basket will have to be re-entered if you end the session without completing the ordering procedure.
Cookies can be handled by all Internet browsers. Most browsers are programmed to accept all cookies without asking the user. If you wish to use the BMBF's shopping basket function, you should set your browser to accept session cookies.
If you refuse all cookies,
Every Internet browser can be set to show you when cookies are being used and what they contain.
