What types of cookies do we use?
We use both first party cookies, which are issued from our website’s own domain, and third-party cookies, which belong to and are managed by other parties, such as our partners or service providers.
The cookies used on our website can be divided into two categories:
Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that will be deleted from your device once you close your browser. They are used to remember your device as you move within our website.
Persistent cookies: These are longer-lasting cookies that remain on your device even after you close your browser. They are used to recognize your device each time you use our website and to remember your preferences.
Nonetheless, the classification as technically necessary or technically non-necessary also determines the cookies we use:
Technically necessary cookies
Technically necessary cookies are required for our website to function properly; they enable you to navigate our website efficiently and use its functional features. An example of this is, the reminder of recently performed actions (e.g., entered text) when you return to a page within the same session.
Technically non-essential cookies
Technically non-essential cookies are not necessary for the proper functioning of our website, but they enable us to improve the content of our website, compile statistics for internal market analysis purposes, provide you with a more personalized online experience or provide additional features. In particular we use analytical cookies.
Analytical cookies are used by third parties. These cookies allow third parties to recognize that you have visited our website. We and our third-party providers may also combine information obtained from these cookies with Personal Information available from other sources, including data collected about you when you use other websites and data collected about you when you are offline, whether on our website or data maintained by the third-party provider.
The Cookies that require your consent
We use Google Analytics, a service provided by Google Inc. This means that the data collected can in principle be transmitted to a Google server in the USA, whereby the IP addresses are anonymized by means of IP anonymization so that an allocation is not possible. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can object to the collection and processing of this data by Google Analytics by setting an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is based on your consent.
How can you configure or disable your cookies?
You can allow, block, or delete the cookies installed on your device via the “Settings” option in your internet browser. If you set your browser settings to not allow cookies to be installed, you may not be able to use some of the services and your user experience on our website may be affected.
Please bear in mind that deleting and blocking cookies will have an impact on your user experience as parts of our website may no longer work.
