Like most websites, our websites also use cookies. Hereinafter, you will find out what cookies are, which cookies we use and how you can manage and disable them.

1. What are cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you. Those cookies are set by us and called first party cookies. We also use third party cookies – which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting – for our advertising and marketing efforts.

2. For which purposes do we use cookies?

We use cookies to improve your experience on our website, to personalise content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. We also share information about your use of our website with our social media, advertising and analytics partners who may combine it with other information that you have provided to them or that they have collected from your use of their services.
