Cookies are small files that are downloaded into your browser’s directory on the hard drive of your computer, tablet or smartphone (hereafter “device”) when you visit our website (hereafter “platform”). Every time you visit our platform, the cookie and the platform will “communicate” in order for your device to be recognised. This is useful for both you and us. For example, a cookie can allow us to save the text entries you make in form fields on the website, so you won’t have to enter the same information again the next time you visit the website, therefore improving your experience on our platforms. Cookies are managed by us through a little program called tool or tag.

We only use first-party, and no third-party cookies. First-party cookies come from our platform and send information to us only. Third-party cookies would be placed by third parties on our site and send information about your device to other companies that recognise that cookie. In most cases the information in a cookie is pseudonymised and they identify your device rather than you as a person.

When and if personal data (e.g. your browser settings, your IP address) are collected via cookies, those are processed in accordance with this cookie notice and our Privacy Policy.

Data collected via cookies can include your:

  • Device data (e.g. whether you’re on desktop or mobile, MAC address, IP address, operating system version, browser settings)
  • Log data (e.g. time and duration of your online usage, which links you’re clicking on, your searches and any information stored in cookies that can uniquely identify your browser or account (e.g. user-, session identifiers)
  • Location data (e.g. your particular entry point to the internet, which can be used to approximate your location)

Cookies have an expiration date. For instance, some cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser (called session or temporary cookies), while others can remain on your device for a longer time, sometimes until you delete them manually (called persistent or permanent cookies).

We use 2 persistent cookies: language choice and the cookie consent as listed in the cookie table further below.

We use a few cookies for the below purposes:

  • Ensuring information security (e.g. to ward off cyber-attacks, to monitor performance).
  • Managing our website (e.g. to enable you to access the website from your device and to remember your choices).
  • Necessary cookies that make the site function properly.
