The operator of this website, uses cookies to optimise your browsing experience and to better adapt the website to your needs and preferences. This cookie statement tells you about the cookies used on this website and how you can change your cookie preferences. Without your prior consent, we only place cookies that are essential for the proper functioning of our website. For all other cookies, we ask for your permission first. 

  1. About cookies 

Cookies are small text files that may be placed on your computer or mobile device when visiting websites, and that store certain details to remember information about you, such as your preferred language. In this cookie policy, by cookies we also mean other technologies such as pixels. 

More information about the different types of cookies is provided below. For a full list of the cookies used on this website, please see section 2. 

Cookies are used for various purposes: 

  • Strictly necessary cookies are cookies that are necessary for the website to function correctly (e.g. maintaining an even load on the website to keep it functional and accessible, or ensuring that a form can be filled in). These cookies are placed without your consent. You can set your browser to block these cookies or to warn you about them, but some parts of the website will not work (properly) in that case.  

  • Functional cookies are cookies that enable the website to offer additional functions and personal settings (e.g. remembering your choice of language, but also playing videos, for example). They may be placed by us or by external service providers that we have added to our pages. We only place these cookies with your prior consent. Please note that if you reject these cookies, it is possible that certain functions will not work (correctly). 

  • Performance cookies are cookies that allow us to count visitors and their origins, so we can analyse and improve the performance of our website. They help us understand which pages are most and least popular and how visitors navigate through the entire site. These cookies are only placed if you have given your consent. 

  • Targeting cookies are cookies that are usually used for marketing purposes, and that serve to collect information about your browsing, searching and purchasing behaviour in order to provide you with personalised advertising based on your personal interests. These cookies are only placed if you have given your consent. If you do not allow these cookies, you will see fewer ads tailored to you. 

  • Social media cookies are cookies that make it possible to share website content with your friends and networks on social media (e.g. via the "Facebook like button"). These cookies may track your browser on other websites and collect information about your browsing, search and buying habits on websites to provide you with personalised advertising and content on these social media networks and other websites. It is possible that these social media networks also use the information they collect via these cookies for their own purposes. You can always find more information about this in the privacy statements of the respective social media networks. These cookies are only placed if you have given your consent. If you do not allow these cookies, you may not be able to see or use the social media buttons. 

Cookies may be placed by us as the website operator, or by a third party: 

  • First party cookies are cookies that are placed directly by us and can only be read by the website. 

  •  Third party cookies are cookies that are placed on the website by third parties and/or that are used to send certain information about your visit to this third party. This happens, for example, because the website contains elements from other websites, such as images, social media plug-ins or advertising. If the browser or other software obtains these elements from other websites, the cookies placed by those other websites will be regarded as third-party cookies. 

In addition, cookies usually have an expiry date: 

  • Session cookies are cookies that are temporarily stored on your computer or mobile device during the browsing session and that are deleted as soon as you close the browser. 

  • Persistent cookies remain on your computer or mobile device after you close the browser and are used to recognise you when you revisit the website. These cookies are deleted after a certain expiry date.
