Why do we use these cookies?

Several types of cookies are used on the Website for different purposes:

  • Analytic cookies (performance): These cookies collect data on how visitors use the Website (such as identifying and counting the number of our visitors, seeing how visitors move around our Website upon using it, whether visitors receive error messages).
  • Targeting cookies: These are cookies that record visits to our Website, including the pages visited and the links clicked. This information is used to make our Website (and possible advertising) more relevant to your interests. We share this information with specific third parties, who use third-party cookies, for this purpose. This means that after you have visited our Website, you may sometimes see advertisements about our services elsewhere on the Internet. Moreover, some web pages on our Website may contain social media plug-ins so that you can easily connect with these social media channels. The social media service providers may place their own cookies on your device via these plug-ins. Our company has no control over these cookies.
