2 What are cookies and why are they used?

Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer or mobile device via your browser.

Some of the cookies that we use on our Website are essential to make our Website work, others serve to provide you a better, faster and safer user experience.

Cookies are often classified in the following categories:

  • “session cookies”: cookies that are automatically erased once the user exits the web browser window;
  • “persistent cookies”: cookies that are placed on a user’s hard drive and stay there for a certain period of time (cookies can expire after several minutes, days or years);
  • “own cookies”: cookies that are developed and placed by the website operator itself; and
  • “cookies from third parties”: cookies that are placed by a website that belongs to a domain different from the one shown in the address bar of the website.

You will find more information on the specific cookies that we use on our Website in point 4 below, and you will learn how to manage these cookies – including, if desired, how to delete them – under point 5.

3 What are social media plug-ins or pixels and why do we use them?

Besides cookies, we are also using social media plug-ins and/or Facebook pixels on our Website.

Social media plug-ins enable us to recognise you on the basis of your social media profile and to import certain data (such as the identification and contact details or your profile picture). In addition, they enable us to use social media (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook) ‘share’ buttons. More information in this respect can be found in the privacy policy of your social media service. In case you do not wish to establish a connection with your social media profile, please log out before using our Website.

Facebook pixels are pieces of software code used on a website to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns and to gain insight into how visitors are using the website. The pixel code is placed in the header of the website. If someone visits the website and performs an action on the website, then the Facebook pixel is activated and reports this action to us. This way, we are able to verify which website visitor is taking specific actions and we are able to contact you again at a later stage via Facebook advertisements, tailored to your fields of interest (also called “remarketing”). We are using pixel data to (i) ensure that our advertisements are shown to the right categories of persons, (ii) to create target audiences for our advertisements, and (iii) to enable additional Facebook advertising tools. More information on the use of Facebook pixels can be found in Facebook’s Privacy Policy. We also recommend regularly verifying and updating your Facebook privacy setting and to set your preferences with the means offered to you by Facebook.

In case you do not want that this Website places cookies on your computer or mobile device, you may limit or delete this easily by adjusting your browser or mobile settings. In addition, you can set you browser or mobile settings in such a way that you get a notification every time you receive a cookie on your computer or mobile device, so that you can decide whether you wish to accept this cookie or not.

Please note that when you disable certain cookies, it is possible that certain parts of our Website will no longer function properly and you will no longer enjoy an optimal user experience.
