A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer, tablet, or smartphone when you first visit our services. The cookies we use ensure a good technical operation of the website and its user-friendliness. Such cookies ensure that the website works properly and, for example, remembers your preferred settings.
Below is described which cookies are used.
Functional cookies are necessary for the website to function. Without these cookies, certain parts cannot be used. These cookies are used anonymously and therefore have little impact on your privacy.
With the help of a session cookie, we can see which parts of the website you have viewed. We can therefore adapt our services as much as possible to the surfing behavior of our visitors. These cookies are automatically deleted as soon as you close your web browser.
Google Analytics collects (anonymized) data about the visit behavior on the website. This way we can see how visitors navigate through it. We use this information to optimize (the operation of) our services and website.
Google can provide this information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or insofar as third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. We have no influence on this. We have not allowed Google to use the obtained analytics information for other Google services.
The information collected by Google is anonymized as much as possible. Your IP address is explicitly not given. The information is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google is affiliated with the Privacy Shield program of the US Department of Commerce.
If you do not want your visit behavior to be tracked, you can download a Google plugin that prevents this. This plugin is available for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Opera via: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=nl. This setting applies to all websites visited, not just this website.
