List of cookies
Via our website, a cookie is placed by the American company Google as part of their Analytics service. This is an analytical cookie. We use this service to track and receive reports on how visitors use the website. Google may also transfer this information to third parties when required to do so by law or when these third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. We have no influence on this.
We have not allowed Google to use the acquired analytics information for other Google services.
The information that Google collects is anonymised as much as possible. We have asked Google to mask your IP address and we have established a processing agreement with Google.
Our website includes buttons to promote (“like”) or share (“tweet”) web pages on the social networks LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. These buttons work by using pieces of code that originate from the parties themselves. Cookies are placed using this code. We have no influence on this. Read the privacy statements of these companies (which may change regularly) to find out what they do with the (personal) data that they process using these cookies.
The information that they collect is anonymised as much as possible. The information is transferred to and stored by Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn on servers in the United States.
