1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on the computer of the user when visiting a website.

A distinction is made between permanent and temporary cookies on the one hand, and between direct and indirect cookies, on the other. Cookies are permanent if they remain on the user's computer after the latter has closed the browser; temporary cookies disappear as soon as the user has closed the browser. Direct cookies are sent by the website itself; indirect cookies, on the other hand, originate from third parties.

Some of these cookies record functional preferences, such as the language choice of the user. Other cookies must allow an analysis of the information, such as the number of visits to a website. Still other cookies are used for marketing purposes.

2. Which cookies are used and why?

We use cookies for both functional and analytical purposes.

These cookies only serve to improve the user experience of visitors to our website.

We do not collect personal data through cookies.

Functional cookies

The functional cookies (permanent and direct) on this website register the preferences entered by the visitor (for example, language choice) and recognise the visitor when he or she visits the website again. The advantage of functional cookies is that the visitor does not need to enter his preferences every time, and this makes the website easier to use. You can delete these functional cookies via the settings of the browser. You will find out how you can do this below.

Google will not combine your IP address with other data that they are holding. By making use of this website, you tacitly consent to the processing of the information by Google in the manner and for the purposes described above.
