What is a cookie and why do we use them?
A cookie is a data file stored in your browser. The cookie identifies your computer when you enter our website.
By using cookies from Google Analytics, we can monitor, inter alia:
- Whether you have visited our website previously
- What country you come from
- What website you have visited previously
- Which search engine you have used to be directed to our website
- When and for how long you have visited our website.
On a few of our websites, we also use a cookie from Google Analytics which gives us the opportunity to target the readers of our advertisements on websites not administered by us (so-called “remarketing”). The purpose of doing this is to be able to present you with relevant advertisements.
Once a year, for a period of one to two months, a cookie is used in connection with optional user surveys. The survey uses a cookie to make sure you don’t receive the survey if you have already responded to it, or if you have declined to take part in it.
