What’s the Deal with our Cookie Consent Notice?

In May 2011, a European Union (EU) Directive was adopted by all EU member countries to protect consumer privacy online. This piece of privacy legislation requires that covered websites:

  • Let users know if they are using cookies (that’s why you see the pop up when first visiting our website)
  • Explain what data is gathered through the use of cookies and how that data is used (what we are doing on this page), and
  • Gather user consent to the use of cookies (you give your consent by continuing your use of our website, with the knowledge of our use of cookies)

 

What do we use the data for?

Cookies are a kind of short term memory for the web.  They are stored in your browser and enable our site to ‘remember’ little bits of information between pages or visits.

We use the insight to optimize our website. By optimizing, we mean removing things that no one looks at. Putting more focus with text and colours on things we want visitors to give more attention.

By use of cookies, we also, in some cases, use retargeting. Meaning that you will see banners on other medias “asking” you to come back to our website.

To handle this information we use Google Analytics.

Cookies may be disabled through the device or browser settings. The method for disabling cookies may vary by device and browser. Please find further guidance in this respect for the most commonly used browsers below:
