What is a cookie?
Use of permanent cookies
With the help of a permanent cookie we can recognize you when you visit our website again. The website can therefore be specially set to your preferences. Even if you have given permission for the placement of cookies, we can remember this by means of a cookie. As a result, you do not have to repeat your preferences every time, which saves you time and allows you to use our website more pleasantly. You can delete permanent cookies via the settings of your browser.
Use of session cookies
With the help of a session cookie we can see which parts of the website you have viewed during this visit. This allows us to adapt our service as much as possible to the surfing behavior of our visitors. These cookies are automatically deleted as soon as you close your web browser."
Tracking cookies from ourselves
With your permission, we place a cookie on your equipment, which can be requested as soon as you visit a website from our network. This allows us to find out that you have also visited the relevant other website(s) from our network in addition to our website. The profile built up as a result is not linked to your name, address, e-mail address and the like, but only serves to match advertisements to your profile, so that they are as relevant to you as possible."
Tracking cookies from our advertisers
With your permission, our advertisers place "tracking cookies" on your equipment. They use these cookies to keep track of which pages you visit from their network, in order to build a profile of your online surfing behaviour. This profile is partly built on the basis of comparable information that they receive from your visit to other websites in their network. This profile is not linked to your name, address, e-mail address and the like as known to us, but only serves to tailor advertisements to your profile so that they are as relevant to you as possible.
A cookie is placed via our website from the American company Google, as part of the “Analytics” service. We use this service to keep track of and to get reports on how visitors use the website. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or insofar as third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this. We have/have not allowed Google to use the obtained analytics information for other Google services.
The information that Google collects is anonymized as much as possible. Your IP address is emphatically not given. The information is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google claims to adhere to the Privacy Shield principles and is affiliated with the Privacy Shield program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.”
Facebook and Twitter buttons
Our website includes buttons to promote (“like”) or share (“tweet”) web pages on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. These buttons work by means of pieces of code that come from Facebook or Twitter itself. Cookies are placed through this code. We have no influence on that. Read the privacy statement of Facebook or Twitter (which can change regularly) to read what they do with your (personal) data that they process via these cookies.

LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google + adhere to the Privacy Shield principles and are affiliated with the Privacy Shield program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.”
