What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that require a website to your browser to save them on your computer or mobile device when you visit the website or certain pages. The cookies allow the website to ‘remember’ your actions or preferences over time. Most browsers accept cookies, but users can set their browsers so that these cookies are blocked or deleted every time desired. Cookies usually contain the name of the website where the cookie comes from, how long the cookie will stay on your device, and a value, which is usually a randomly unique number. Some cookies will be removed as soon as you leave the website (the so-called ‘session cookies’), other cookies will be stored on your computer or mobile device and will help us identify yourself as a visitor to our website (the so-called “permanent cookies” ).


Why do we use cookies?

Cookies for various purposes are used on our website. We use cookies to improve the user experience on the website and to map your surfing behavior (e.g. the pages you have visited and the time you spent on that page). Cookies make our website more user-friendly and allow us to better align our website to your interests and needs. Cookies are also used to increase the speed of future activities and experiences on the website. For example, we use cookies to remember your language preferences.

We also use cookies to collect merged statistics together anonymously that allow us to understand how our website is used and how we can improve our services.


Which cookies do we use?

We use First Party Cookies and Third Party Cookies. First Party Cookies are cookies created by the website itself. These cookies are used to optimize your user experience. Third Party Cookies are cookies that have been created by other parties (and not by the website). Third Party Cookies on our website are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Analytics. Google Analytics is Google’s analytical tool that helps us understand how you deal with our website. The tool can use a series of cookies to collect information and to report user statistics about the website without making individual visitors to Google personally known. The main cookie used by Google Analytics is the ‘___ga’ cookie.

A further distinction can be made between the following types of cookies:

  • Necessary cookies: these are necessary for the operation of our website. These include, for example, cookies that allow you to log in.
  • Analytical cookies/performance cookies: these cookies allow us to analyze our web traffic, view the number of users of our website and see how visitors navigate on our website.
  • Functional cookies: these cookies ‘remember’ the choices you made on our website (e.g. language preference), which makes the website user-friendly and promotes user experience.
  • Targeted cookies: these show us the pages you have visited and the links you have followed so that the ads can be tailored to your interests.



How can you manage or delete cookies?

You can manage or delete cookies at any time through the settings of your internet browser, which allows you to block certain or all cookies. Switching off cookies will limit the services that we can offer and can influence your user experience. The removal of cookies can result in your preferences manually to adjust every time you visit our website.
