Cookies in general

In general a cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your device when you visit a website. Cookies that are not expired are read by the website each time you visit it again. Cookies can also be set by third party websites. This gives them the ability to track your visits on multiple websites and thereby give them information about your interests and habits online. We call those cookies ‘Other Cookies’ in the description below.

In this notice we describe three kinds of cookies. The first to do not need your consent based on the fact that they are required for our sites to properly function and the data is for our own usage only. These cookies help us enhance your experience when using our website and help us understand how people use our site. This way we can better serve you. Without these cookies, we cannot guarantee the website will work properly. These cookies are set automatically for all users, unless you block them based on your browser settings off course.

Three Types of Cookies in Relation to Our Website

Functional Cookies

Our Essential Cookies always originate from our website and are required for the site to function. If you block these cookies, essential functionality will break. These cookies expire as soon as you leave the website.

Analytics Cookies

We use Statistics Cookies to measure the website performance and visitor usage. We need these in order to identify possible improvements, and to make sure the website can handle the volume of people visiting it. The data is gathered by Google Analytics, but that is done in a way so that Google has no access to it. These cookies are stored on your computer for 26 months since your last visit, unless you delete them yourself before then.

Third party Cookies

There are services on our platform that try to store third party cookies. This will most likely happen when you click on third party content. Despite the fact that we try to limit the cookies as much as

possible, we cannot give guaranties and so you have to take into account that the cookies mentioned and explained below can be set when using our platform.

AdWords

AdWords is a service of Google. We use it to get a better understanding of the interests of our users where and when needed. As a result of the AdWords usage, Google will try to store cookies on your computer.

Like buttons

All of our ‘Like-buttons’ are cookie free as long as you don’t click on them. When you like a page, post or other content offered by our platform, that third party will try to store one or more cookies on your device.

We assume that you are familiar with the third parties that belong to the icons shown. You might first want to hover over the icons to see the specific third party it concerns.

Twitter

We allow ourselves, you and other users of our platform to embed Twitter posts. As long as you do not click on them, no cookies are set. When you do, Twitter tries to store one or more cookies on your device.
