1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored on the device that you use to visit our website. This includes, for example, your smartphone, computer or tablet. When a cookie is stored on your device, your device can be recognised by the website that you visit. In addition to cookies, we also use similar techniques that can help recognise your device and collect information about your website visit, such as javascript and beacons.

Cookies are generally of limited validity from the moment they are placed on your device. After the validity period has expired, the cookie is automatically deleted by your browser. We use cookies with a different validity period. Firstly, we can use cookies that are only valid for the duration of your browser session. These cookies are deleted immediately after you close the session. Secondly, we also use cookies that are stored for longer, so that they can still be read on your next visit to our website.

Insofar as we collect your personal data using cookies, we process your personal data in accordance with our Privacy Statement.

In addition to our own cookies, we also use third-party cookies on our website. We have no control over the privacy and cookie policy of these third parties and are not responsible for this. These third parties use your data for their own purposes, such as following your internet behaviour and keeping track of your interests. Google Analytics is an example of this.

2. Accepting or refusing cookies

Most browsers are set by default to automatically accept the use of cookies. You can adjust this. You can set your browser so that no cookies are stored on your device, so that you can allow or refuse any cookie of your choice, or that all cookies are deleted when you close your browser.

We may only place certain cookies if you have given your prior consent. We only use these cookies if you have given your permission. You give your permission by clicking on 'agree' on the cookie notification on the homepage of the website. When you withdraw your consent, we will no longer use cookies on your device that require your consent. The cookies that we may place without permission to make the website work will still be placed.

If you no longer want to collect cookies or delete cookies, you can also adjust your browser settings. If you decide to block all or part of the cookies, you may experience a reduced functionality of our website.

3. Cookies on our website

Various types of cookies can be placed on our website which can be divided into three categories: (i) functional cookies, (ii) analytical cookies and (iii) advertising cookies, including tracking and social media cookies. In accordance with the law, we will only place analytical and advertising cookies if you have given your consent via the cookie notification or, without your permission, if the analytical cookies have no or little effect on your privacy. Functional cookies can also be placed without your permission.

Functional cookies are cookies that enable you to use our website and its functionalities. These cookies are necessary for the functioning of our website and are placed when you open our website or click on a relevant functionality.

Analytical cookies (such as Google Analytics) measure how our visitors use our website. With this information, the use of our website can be analysed, and reports and statistics can be generated about the use of our website. This allows us to measure the quality or effectiveness of our website and improve how we present the content to you.

Advertising cookies (including tracking and social media cookies) from third parties keep track of, for example, which advertisements you have seen from us and/or third parties that you have clicked on through our website or via third-party websites. When you have given your consent, we (and the third parties concerned) can follow your internet behaviour on our website and on third-party websites using the information obtained via the tracking and advertising cookies. This allows us to show you relevant advertisements and make personal offers on our website and on third-party websites based on your interests.

Social media cookies make it easier for you to share information on social media. Social media cookies also allow the social media provider to monitor your internet behaviour. We have no control over this and are not responsible for this.
