Cookies are small text files stored on the device you use to visit websites, containing information about these websites and your visits to them. As an example, this could be about your choice of language or other settings.

What are cookies used for?

This website makes use of various different cookies:

Session cookies

To improve your user experience your input and choices are recorded (e.g. what you enter on forms when you subscribe to or unsubscribe from our digital newsletter). The session cookie records what parts of the website are looked at during a visit, and that allows us to adapt our website accordingly.

Session cookies are automatically erased from the device you use as soon as you close your browser.

Google Analytics cookies

These cookies ensure that the website visit can be measured (as far as possible anonymously) e.g. recording which pages are visited most often, which browsers our users use and what the most used screen format is. The service used for this is one of the most used web analysis services and is provided by Google Inc. The statistics provided by Google Analytics allow us to improve our website. This information may be provided to third parties if Google comes under a legal obligation to do so, or if third parties process this information on behalf of Google. We have permitted Google to use the information obtained for other Google services.

The information is transferred to servers in the United States of America where it is stored by Google. Google states that it complies with the so-called ‘Safe Harbour principles’ and that it participates in the Safe Harbour programme of the US Department of Commerce, which means there is a suitable level of protection for the processing of any personal data.

These cookies do not store names, addresses or other personal details, but may in some cases store your IP address.
