Google Analytics
Our website places a cookie from the company Google as part of their ‘Analytics’ service. We use this service to monitor and receive reports about how visitors are using the website. Google may share this information with third parties if Google is required to do so by law or if these third parties process information on behalf of Google. We have no influence over this. We do not permit Google to use the information from Analytics for other Google services.

The information Google collects is anonymised wherever possible. Your IP address is explicitly not shared. The information transferred to Google is stored on servers in the United States. Google is required to observe Safe Harbor Privacy Principles and is a participant in the Safe Harbor Framework of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.

Tracking cookies to tailor adverts to your preferences more effectively
With your permission, we place tracking cookies on your device to tailor adverts to your preferences more effectively. Third parties use these cookies to gather information about which pages you visit outside their network in order to build a user profile of your online surfing behaviour. This profile is compiled on the basis of similar information which they receive from other websites in their network. This profile is linked to your name, address, email address and other such data known to us, but is only used to tailor adverts to your profile, so that they are as relevant to you as possible.

Social media
Our website includes buttons for promoting (‘liking’) or sharing (‘tweeting’) our webpages on social media networks, such as Facebook and Twitter. These buttons work by using a piece of code that comes from Facebook or Twitter. Cookies are placed using these codes. We have no influence over this. Read the privacy statements of Facebook or Twitter (which may change regularly) in order to find out what they do with your (personal) data, which they process via these cookies.

The information they collect is anonymised as much as possible. The information is transferred to Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn and stored by them on servers in the United States. LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google + observe Safe Harbor Privacy Principles and are participants in the Safe Harbor program of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.
