We place a number of cookies that are basically essential to the website’s functioning. Yet there are also other important cookies, such as Google Analytics, even though you may not see the immediate effect they have. We do not place these tracking cookies ourselves; third parties do this on our behalf (third-party cookies). We are therefore unable to bear responsibility for these.
We use the following cookies:
These cookies are essential to the functioning of the website and cannot be switched off. In most cases, these cookies are only used in response to an action involving you requesting a service. For example: registering your privacy settings, logging in to the website or completing a form. You can set your browser to block these cookies or warn you about them. However, if you do so some parts of the website will not work. These cookies do not store any personal identifiable information.
With the help of Google Analytics, we collect (anonymized) information about search behavior. This enables us to see how visitors use the websites. We use this information to improve the websites.
On this website, IP anonymisation has been activated. The IP addresses of users from European Union member states, or from other states contracting to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, will be shortened. Only in exceptional cases will a complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there.
This website uses Google Signals. Google Signals is a function of Google Analytics and enables cross device tracking of website users who are logged into their Google account and who have activated Ads Personalization in their Google account. Aggregated data of these users is included in Google Analytics reports. Google account users can control their advertisement experience and can deactivate Ads Personalization at any time in their Google account settings.
If you do not want your click behavior to be tracked, you can download a browser plug-in from the Google website to prevent this. This setting will then apply to all websites that you visit, so not only our website. You can download the browser plug-in here.
Cookies are also placed to analyse which content you view in order to offer you specific services: Tawk.to places cookies to enable the live chat function. We also place SharpSpring cookies for forms on our website. These are used to track visitors and submit entries.
LinkedIn, Facebook, Google and Microsoft may place cookies on our websites to gauge whether the advertisements we display on their services are effective. These allow them to track which advertisements you have already seen and how many visitors view the entire advertisement, how many click on it or how many undertake an action on our website after clicking on it.
The site contains buttons for sharing pages on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. These buttons are pieces of code belonging to the social media themselves and make use of a cookie. The cookie for the individual service remembers that you are logged in so that you do not need to do this each time. Please consult the privacy statements of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to learn how these companies treat your personal data.
