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 web browser.

Some of the cookies we use on our website are necessary for the website to work. Others serve to give you a better, faster and safer user experience.

Cookies are often divided into the following categories:

  • "session-based cookies"
    : cookies that are automatically deleted when the user leaves the browser window,
  • "persistent cookies"
    : cookies that are placed on a user's hard drive and remain there for a certain period of time (cookies can expire after a number of minutes, days or years),
  • "own cookies"
    : cookies developed and placed by the website operator, and
  • "third-party cookies"
    : cookies placed by a website belonging to a domain other than the one displayed in the address bar of the website.


More information about specific cookies that we use on our website can be found in section 4 below, and how you manage these cookies including how to delete them, if you wish, is explained in section 5.

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

In addition to cookies, we also use social media plug-ins and/or Facebook pixels on our website.

Social media plug-ins allow us to recognise you on the basis of your social media profile and to import certain information (e.g. identification and contact details or your profile picture). In addition, they enable the use of "share" buttons in social media (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook). More information on this can be found in the privacy policy of your social media services. If you do not want to connect to 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 use the site. The pixel code is placed in the header of the website. If someone visits the site and performs an action on the site, the Facebook pixel is activated and reports this action to us. This allows us to verify which website visitors are taking specific actions and we can later contact you via Facebook ads, tailored to your areas of interest (also known as "remarketing"). We use pixel data to (i) ensure that our advertising is shown to the right category of people, (ii) create target audiences for our ads, and (iii) enable additional Facebook advertising tools. For more information on the use of Facebook pixels, please see the Facebook Privacy Policy. We also recommend that you regularly check and update your Facebook privacy settings and adjust your settings using the means offered by Facebook.

  • Google Analytics : These cookies allow us to recognise visitors to our website, count the number of visitors and identify how they navigate. This allows us to improve user experience and ensure that visitors find what they need more quickly and easily.

How can you manage/delete these cookies?
