Different types of cookies

We differentiate between functional and non-functional cookies. We always install functional cookies. They are required for the website to run properly. For example, they ensure that you can stay logged-in to the website when you want to. In addition to functional cookies, we also install standard analytical cookies. This is an example of a non-functional cookie. It is not required for the proper functioning of the website. It lets us see what parts of our website are popular and where we can improve our website. We also install several other non-functional cookies, but only after you have consented to this. They all serve different purposes, but they enable us to improve our services. For example, we use cookies to show our online surveys on our website, to test improvements on our website, to show social media buttons, or to show relevant ads for our services on other websites.
