What is a cookie?
We place functional cookies which help our server to remember you when you visit our website on another occasion. This allows our website to remember your preferences and settings. It also lets our server remember whether you have already granted permission for cookies. This avoids you being asked the question again and also saves you time because our website already knows your preferences. This makes using our website easier and provides a better browsing experience.
Our website stores a cookie on your computer on behalf of the Analytics service of the American company Google. We use this service to record information about how visitors use our website and generate related reports. It is possible that Google may have to share this information with third parties if it has a legal obligation to do so, or if third parties process or analyse the information on behalf of Google. We have not given Google permission to use the Analytics information for other Google services.
The information collected by Google is anonymised as much as possible. Specifically, this means that Google does not receive your IP address. The Analytics information is transmitted to and stored on Google’s servers in the United States. Google has declared that it will observe the Privacy Shield principles and also participates in the Shield programme of the International Trade Administration of the United States Department of Commerce. This means that adequate data protection methods must be used when processing any personal data.
