Welcome to our website! We are glad that you are here. We use cookies to ensure that you have the best possible user experience on our website. In this statement you can learn all about our cookies.

What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that is stored by your smartphone, tablet or computer. The information in this file serves functional, commercial and statistical purposes. The differences between these three purposes is further explained in the following section. In addition to cookies, there are other ways that we can store and read certain information on your computer, smartphone or tablet. One example of this is local storage. This works more or less like cookies. To make it a bit easier for you, we have summarized both functions under “Cookies” in this document. To place cookies we use well-known methods like javascript and tracking pixels.

Are cookies dangerous?
Using cookies is completely safe and not dangerous. They are widely and constantly used throughout the Internet. A cookie never contains personal data, such as your name, phone number or email address. Therefore, cookies can never be used to contact you personally, for example via email or a phone call. It is very important to us that you know exactly what kind of cookies we place and what they are used for by third parties. Read more about this below.

What do we use cookies for?
We use them for several purposes:

You can also learn more about the companies that may place cookies on your computer, tablet or smartphone when you visit our website. We do not always have control over this, as we sometimes use the services of other companies and they then place the cookies. The Google company is a good example of this. Google offers us products that allow us to measure the number of visitors to our websites. In addition, Google also shows us advertisements. To be able to do that, Google has to place cookies.

If another company places a cookie, we will forward you via a link to their privacy policy or cookie statement. Thus, you can read for yourself what these companies use cookies for.
