This website uses cookies. A cookie is a small, simple file that a website stores on your hard drive via the browser. A cookie contains information. For example, we use a cookie to remember what you have done on this website in the past, so that you do not have to repeat this on your next visit.

Why do we use cookies?

  • To improve the functioning of the website.
  • To make the website easier to use.
  • To measure whether visitors can easily find the information they require on our website.

Which cookies do we use on our website?

Persistent cookies

By using persistent cookies, we ensure that you do not have to repeat certain actions. We recognise the preferences that you entered during a previous visit to our website. This saves you time and makes the website easier to use. You can remove permanent cookies using your browser settings.

Session cookies

Session cookies are used during your visit and are automatically removed as soon as you close the browser. We remember which sections you have viewed during a visit and use this information when designing our services.

Google Analytics cookies

Google uses our website to install cookies, as part of the ‘Analytics service’. We use this service to keep track of visitor behaviour and to receive reports about how visitors use our website. We can then use this information to improve the website. The objective is therefore not to remember personal details, but to keep track of your actions on the website.

Social media cookies

You will find buttons on our website which you can use to promote our messages or web pages on social media. For example, ‘liking’ on Facebook or sending a ‘tweet’ via Twitter. These buttons work using pieces of code that originate from the social media platforms themselves. These pieces of code are used to place cookies. We have no influence on this. The social media platforms have their own privacy statements which state what they do with your personal information using the cookies.

Tracking cookies of our own

We request a tracking cookie as soon as you visit a website from our network. This tells us whether you have visited the other website(s) from our network as well as our own website. The profile that is constructed in this way is not linked to your name, address, email address etcetera, but serves only to match advertisements to your profile, so that these are as relevant to you as possible.

Right of access, correction or deletion

You have the right to access, correct or delete your personal data. You can contact us about this. To prevent misuse, we may ask you to identify yourself adequately.

Enabling, disabling and deleting cookies
