1. First Party Cookies
1.1 Google Analytics (tracking cookies)

As part of their “Analytics” service, Google places a cookie on your device via our website. This service is used to keep track of how visitors use our site and enables us to obtain reports of their activity. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or if third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this. We do not allow Google to use this Analytics information for any other Google services.
Google anonymises the information it collects as much as possible and places great emphasis on never disclosing your IP address. The information that is collected is transferred to Google and stored on servers in the United States. Google maintains the Safe Harbor principles and is affiliated with the Safe Harbor program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data, including the data provided through our website.

  1. Third Party Cookies
    2.1 Tracking cookies for relevant advertisements
    By using our website, you agree with our cookie policy or give us implicit permission to use cookies unless you change your settings (more about this in chapter 3). After agreement/permission, other parties place “tracking cookies” on your device to personalise advertisements to your preferences. These cookies are used to keep track of which pages you visit outside their network in order to build up a profile of your online surfing behaviour. This profile is further enhanced by comparing the information they receive from your visits to other websites within their own network. In no way is this information linked to your name, address, e-mail address or other private information you have disclosed to us; it only serves to match advertisements to your profile so that they are as relevant to you as possible.2.2 Social Media
    We include buttons on our website to promote web pages (“like”) or share (“tweet”) on social networks like Facebook and Twitter. These buttons work through pieces of code that originate from Facebook or Twitter itself. Cookies are placed on your desktop via this code, over which we have no influence. Read the privacy statement of Facebook or Twitter (which can change regularly) to know what they do with your (personal) data and how they process it via these cookies.
    The information they collect is anonymised as much as possible. The information is then transferred to and through Twitter, Facebook, Google + and LinkedIn to be stored on servers in the United States. LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google + adhere to the Safe Harbor principles and are affiliated with the Safe Harbor program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data collected.
