A persistent cookie enables us to recognise you when you return to our website, and then to adjust the website to your preferences. A cookie also allows us to remember that you have given permission for us to send cookies. This saves you having to repeat your preferences over and over again, which in turn saves you time and makes it easier for you to use our website. Persistent cookies can be deleted via your browser settings.
Using a session cookie allows us to see which parts of the website you have viewed during this visit. This enables us to adapt our service to our visitors’ surfing behaviour. Session cookies are automatically deleted as soon as you close your web browser.
Google sends a cookie via our website as part of their ‘Analytics’ service. We use this service to track how visitors use the website and to receive reports on its use. Google may provide this information to third parties if legally obliged to do so, or in the event that third parties process the information on Google's behalf. We have no influence on this.
The information that Google collects is anonymised as much as possible; your IP address is deliberately omitted. The information is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google states that it adheres to the Privacy Shield principles and it is affiliated with the American Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield programme. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data. For more information about what Google does with the data collected, we refer you to Google’s privacy statement.
Our website includes buttons to promote or share web pages on social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. These buttons work with pieces of code that come from the social media platforms themselves. This code sends cookies. We have no influence on this.
For more information on what social media platforms do with stored data, we refer you to their own privacy statements:
These privacy statements may change from time to time.
