Statistical purposes

We may use your data for statistical purposes, to analyze and improve the use, possible abuse and operation of our services. This way we can make our content even better and more relevant for you.

To gain insight into the use of this website, we use logging and so-called 'cookies'. You can find more information about cookies in this text. The data we process in this way are, for example, an IP address, viewed pages, mouse clicks, the date and time of your visit, your browser, the brand, type and operating system of the device you are using. This data is kept for a maximum period of 26 months. For clarity; your name and / or e-mail address are not part of this dataset.

For the analysis of this data we use the services of Google Universal Analytics, 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Here you can view the relevant privacy policy.

With the cookie settings at the bottom of this page you can choose to mask your IP address. A part of your IP address will then be made unreadable so that the statistical data can no longer be related to the IP address of your device.

Advertising

For the continued existence of this website we are dependent on advertising.

We always request your permission to display targeted or personalised advertisements. We do this via the cookie settings that appear on your screen when you first visit this website or use its applications. You can withdraw your consent via the settings at the bottom of this page. For clarity; you will still see advertisements when you use this website or its applications, but they will no longer be taylored to your probable interests.

For advertising we rely on the services of Google Adsense, 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States. They manage the user profile that is used to show you personalized ads that suit your interests. Google uses cookies to help serve the ads it displays on the websites of its partners, such as websites displaying Google ads or participating in Google certified ad networks. When you visit this or a Google partner's website, a cookie may be dropped on your device. Here you can find more about the privacy policy of Google.

A complete overview of all possible external suppliers and ad networks can be found here. You can visit these websites to unsubscribe from cookies for personalized ads (if the vendor or the advertising network offers this option) but for your convenience you can also opt out of personalized advertising via Google ads settings or through www.aboutads.info.

Google Adsense is used for advertising on many websites. Even if you have not given us permission for personalized advertising or if you have withdrawn your consent, Google Adsense or one of its partners may have a user profile of you, as a result of your visit to other websites.

Social media

Some buttons and fields on our webpages or in our applications link to social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn. The functionality of these buttons is usually managed by the social media itself. We therefore do not have complete control over the cookies that are possibly placed by social media. We encourage you to read the terms and conditions, the cookie policy and the privacy policy of the relevant social networks. For Facebook we use plugins to easily share comments and display them on our website. You can unsubscribe from this service with the cookie settings at the bottom of this page.
