What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Software on your device, for example a web browser, stores the cookies and sends them back to a website next time you visit. Cookies allow websites to recognize your device and preferences, and provide information to the owners of sites which can be used to improve your online experience.
What personal information do we collect?
Some cookies collect personal information. Most do not collect information that allows the user to be identified. They collect general information such as how the user got to the site and how they used it, or in which part of the world they are located.
What are third party cookies?
Third-parties may serve cookies through our website to provide analytics, to store your preferences and personalize your experience, to enable delivery of advertisements, including behavioral advertising and other types. The cookies set by a third-party may change from time to time and we have no control over these cookies.
What types of cookies we use?
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site.
Statistic cookies help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third-party advertisers.
Where we store your information
Some companies that provide services to us, run their services from outside the European Economic Area. We only let that happen if we are satisfied with their levels of security. Keep in mind that when you give us personal information it could be being transferred, stored, or processed in a location outside the EEA.

What happens if I reject cookies?
If you decide to reject cookies that require your prior consent, we will not use such cookies. If you decide to withdraw consent that was given to us previously, we will no longer use the relevant cookies and will delete them (if they are first-party cookies). The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. This means, that in the case of personalization and advertising cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of all the features and functionality of our website. Similarly, it is possible for you to reject analytics cookies. In that case we will be less able to learn what you like or do not like about our website, so that we can make it better.
We cannot delete third-party cookies. If you wish to delete all third-party cookies, you need do this in your own browser settings. Also, if you reject or withdraw your consent to advertising cookies, you will not necessarily receive less advertising – but the advertising you see will not be customized to suit your needs.
