What is a cookie?

We use cookies on our website. A cookie is a simple small file that is sent with pages [and / or Flash applications] from this website and stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. The information stored therein can be sent back to our servers on a subsequent visit.

Different types of cookies

We distinguish between functional and non-functional cookies. We always place functional cookies, as these are necessary for the website to work properly. For example, they ensure that you can stay logged in on the website if you wish. In addition to functional cookies, we also place standard analytical cookies. This is an example of a non-functional cookie, as it is not required for the proper functioning of the website. This way we know which parts of the website are popular and in which places we can improve our website. Only when you agree with the placement of cookies, we also place a number of other non-functional cookies. These all have different purposes, enabling us to improve our services. For example, we use cookies to display online surveys on our website, to test improvements on our website or to show social media buttons.

Usage of session cookies

With the help of a session cookie we can see which parts of the website you have viewed during your current visit. This helps us to adjust our service as much as possible to the surfing behaviour of our visitors. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your web browser.

Social media

Buttons and / or feeds from Twitter are included on our website. This integration works through pieces of code that originate from Twitter itself. This code also places cookies, over which we have no influence. In the privacy statement of Twitter (which can change regularly) you may read what they do with your (personal) data that they process via these cookies.

The information collected by Twitter is anonymised as much as possible. The information is transferred to and stored by Twitter on servers in the United States. Twitter adheres to the Privacy Shield principles and is affiliated with the Privacy Shield program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.
