What is a Cookie?
Cookies are small files that contain letters and numbers that are stored on your device. Cookies and other tracing technologies are widely used in order to make websites work as intended and more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of how the site is used.
- To protect and keep our website safe
- To count visits and traffic to our sites so that we can measure and improve the performance of it in line with your expectations
- To provide enhanced functionality and, if you want us to, personalisation
- To be able to perform advertising together with our advertising partners
- For user authentication or form field information
- To remember your preferences
At the bottom of this page, you will find a button that links to the Cookie-Settings. There you can see what exact purpose each cookie is placed for and decide yourself if you allow us to place them or not (unless they are strictly necessary cookies).
Different types of cookies
- Strictly necessary cookies are necessary for a website to function and can therefore not be switched off. These cookies are mainly set in response to actions made by you. For example, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block these cookies but please note that some parts of the site may not work. These cookies do not store any personal identifiable information.
- Performance cookies count visits and traffic sources to measure and improve the performance of a site. They help to understand what pages are the most and least popular and how visitors move around the site. The information collected from these cookies is aggregated and anonymous.
- Functional cookies enable a site to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by the owner of the site or by a third-party provider whose services have been added to the page. If these cookies are not allowed, then some parts of a service may not function as intended.
- Targeting cookies are cookies that are set for advertising purposes. They may be used by an advertising partner to build a profile of your interest to show you relevant adverts on other sites. These cookies do not store direct personal data but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device.
Performance, functional and targeting cookies requires your consent. Strictly necessary cookies do not require a user’s consent as these cookies provide complete and continues display of the content of the website so that you can access it and receive an appropriate digital browsing and online experience.
For how long are cookies stored?
Cookies can be stored for varying lengths of time on your browser or device. Temporary cookies (also called session cookies) are stored in your device until you close your browser. Permanent cookies have an expiration date and when this date has passed, the cookie is deleted when you return to the website that created it. You will find the retention time for each cookie in the Cookie-Settings.
How to accept or withdraw your cookie consent in “Cookie-Settings”
You can manage your cookie consent at any time in the “Cookie Settings” at the bottom of this website. You can accept all cookies or only allow us to use some of them. It is completely up to you, and we believe that that’s fair. As mentioned above, this does not apply to strictly necessary cookies.
If you allow all cookies, you accept all cookie categories. This may in some cases mean that pseudonymised data will be processed outside of the EU/EEA.
