On our website, information is collected and stored using what are known as browser cookies.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which are stored on your data carrier and store certain settings and data for interacting with our system via your browser. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain that the cookie data was sent from, information on the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identification code.
Cookies allow our systems to recognise the user’s device and make any predefined settings available immediately. Once a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transmitted to said user’s computer hard disk. Cookies help us to improve our website and provide you with a better service more tailored to you. They allow us to recognise your computer and/or (mobile) end device if you return to our website, thus enabling us to:
- Store information on your preferred activities on the website and thus align our website to your individual interests.
- Speed up processing of your queries.
We work together with third-party services that help us make the online service and website more appealing to you. Accordingly, when you visit the website, cookies from these partner companies (third-party providers) are also stored on your hard disk. These cookies are automatically erased after a fixed period.

If you do not wish browser cookies to be used, you can adjust the settings for the cookies used on this end device as you wish at any time, by clicking on the cookie settings. Alternatively, you can adjust your browser's settings to prevent it from accepting the storage of cookies.

If you only wish to accept our own cookies, not those of our service providers and partners, you can select the setting ‘block cookies from third-party providers’ in your browser. We accept no responsibility for the use of third-party cookies.
These cookies are used to enhance and simplify your user experience. For example, they may remember information about previous choices you have made, remember your password, or allow video or social media content to be properly viewed on the website. Some of them may be required for system administration, to prevent fraudulent activity, to keep you logged in from one page to another, or for a shopping cart function.
