2. About this cookies policy

This Cookies Policy provides further information about several types of computer cookies and why We use them. The information below is intended to give You a better understanding of what cookies are and what role they play when You visit our web-site. Since the end of May 2012 EU law has required all sites that use cookies to make You aware about them and seek your express permission to store and retrieve data about your browsing habits.


3. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that is placed on the device used by a visitor to a web-site to facilitate the communication between the visitor’s device (whether a computer, smartphone, video-games console or other device, ...) and the site server. In this limited sense the cookie fulfills the role of a simple ‘witness’ to the web-site/visitor exchange by storing certain information.

Thereafter, technological developments have allowed the purposes of cookies to be extended to, for example: performance of the site, user statistics for the site, remembering preferences and in some cases targeted advertising.

In this broader sense, the word ‘cookie’ refers to all the files that store extracts of the information conveyed or generated during exchanges between a site and its visitors, whether they are stored on the visitor's device or on a server. It is in this wider sense that the term is used here.


4. Why do we use cookies?

Category 2: Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website. For example, which pages visitors visit the most, and if you get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that you identify as a visitor. All information gathering these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

B. Third party cookies

Category 4: Targeting cookies or advertising cookies

These cookies collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit both the number of times you see an ad and how to measure the effectiveness of an ad campaign. The cookies are usually placed by third party advertising networks with the approval of the website operator. They remember the websites you visit weekly and that information is shared with other parties like advertisers. Quite often, targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to the site functionality provided by the other organization.

Third party cookies are not used unless you allow their use. If you choose not to allow the cookies, we guarantee that the personal data that is collected by these cookies will not be passed on to third parties to use for their own purposes. However, in that case the function is not available on our website or the app concerned (e.g. functionalities for share and like buttons, along with playback on our website of a video hosted on Vimeo or YouTube, are disabled). You can view the video concerned directly on the website or app of the third party in question
