Cookies and Web Beacons

A cookie is a text file placed on your computer by your browser, on behalf of a website you visited. Cookies are harmless: They cannot contain viruses or other malicious code. They are typically used to store information you entered earlier, so that you don’t have to enter it again, or to obtain information about how often you visit a website.

Cookies can only be read by the websites that placed them, and contain only information that website placed in them, so they cannot be used to obtain personal information like e-mail addresses.

Web beacons are invisible elements (often tiny pictures) on a website. They are usually placed by third parties to track visits and collect statistical information.

The web site uses cookies and web beacons to collect anonymous statistics, via third party statistics packages like Statcounter or Google Analytics, and to serve advertisements. Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on the website. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to you based on your visit to our sites and/or other sites on the Internet. You may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie by visiting the Google Ad Settings page.

Note: You can opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies for interest based advertising by visiting

Collection of personal data

When you disclose personal data, like your name or e-mail address, we will only use it to reply to your queries, or to send you the information you asked for (e.g. a newsletter subscription).

Personal data will only be shared with third parties if:

  • there is a legal requirement to do so.
  • you subscribed to the e-mail newsletter. All subscriptions are handled by MailChimp, and their privacy policy applies.
