GDPR & Cookies
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file placed on your computer when you visit a website. In this text file, the website stores information that it would like to be able to read the next time you visit the site. They mostly contain information used for statistics and analysis, and they are completely harmless. For example, if you choose to change the font size on the website, a cookie can be used to remember it. Then the font size will be the same the next time you visit us.
As part of the collection of information via cookies, personal data such as your IP address may be collected. The processing of this data is based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation). You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.
Cookies for statistical purposes
In addition, we use Google Analytics to collect statistics about user behaviour on the website. We use the information to understand what our users are asking for and how we can best present the relevant information to our users.
Google stores information on traffic on the website on its own servers, but we anonymise the IP addresses by hiding the last eight digits. It is therefore not possible to identify individual users through the data that Google collects. You can read more about how Google processes its data here.
