Your privacy is important, which is why we are being as transparent as possible regarding our use of connection cookies and similar technology on our website.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small files placed on your computer or mobile device when you access our website.
They allow us to remember your preferences and give us information on how you interact with our site. They recognize your device and store certain information on your preferences or actions. If you authorize cookies, they are stored on your device and we can access them on your next visit. This makes for an easier and more personalized user experience that better meets your needs. Certain cookies are also used for web analytics (providing depersonalized visit counts and page visits).
What kind of information do we collect with cookies?
Cookies collect a range of information that may be linked to your use of our sites, your preferences, or your device.
For example, cookies may collect information on:
- Date and time of visits
- Pages visited
- Your browser or operating system
- How you access or interact with the site
Types of cookies
We divide cookies into four categories, depending on their function and intended purpose: necessary cookies, statistics cookies, preferences cookies, and marketing cookies.
These cookies are essential for our website to function. Without these cookies, you would not be able to navigate our website or operate its basic functions. They may:
- Show you the site in the language of your choice
- Enable website navigation

- Authenticate and identify you

Necessary Cookies may not be disabled in our consent management tool. You can configure your browser to block essential cookies, but the site may not work properly.
These cookies collect information about how you use our website. We use Google Analytics to collect, analyze, measure, and report data from these cookies to understand our web traffic and page views in order to improve the performance of our websites and your user experience. For example, the cookies record which browser and operating system you used, which parts of the websites you visited, your number of visits, and the average duration of your visits. They do not collect information that would allow us to identify you. The collected information is aggregated and, therefore, remains anonymous.
These cookies store information that you have already entered, such as your language selection and your location, in order for your experience to feel more personalized when you return to our websites. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.
These cookies register your activity on our website. We may allow a limited number of trusted third party advertising partners to install cookies to build a profile of your interests based on information about you, such as your page views on our website or your information requests on our website.
Our website may include third-party advertising, links to other websites and/or social plugins. Social plugins are buttons that let you share your experiences on our websites with other people on social media platforms (including but not limited to Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter/X, Pinterest and YouTube ). When you share your experiences through social plugins, social media platforms install their own cookies on your device.
These cookies do not store information about you but they uniquely identify your browser and device. Together with other information about you collected by our advertising partners or social media companies, your browser and device information could be used by third parties to identify you.
