What are cookies?
websites you view save small text files on your computer. This enables your
computer to be recognized during your visit and during a following visit. We

What do cookies do?
There are three types of cookies:
Necessary cookies Certain cookies are needed to maintain settings or preferences during a visit to the website or until a following visit. Suppose that you do not want any cookies from a certain website. That website can 'remember' this by placing a cookie. Without cookies you will be bothered by the same questions each time.
Cookies for analysis of website use There are cookies that transmit to the website which pages you view, in which order and how long. This can be turned into web statistics that can help to gear the website better to the visitors. Similar cookies are those used to hold online surveys.
third-party websites Third parties can place cookies on certain parts of the website. In that case these are handy extras, such as: a Google map with an interactive route description, a 'like' button on Facebook, or the possibility to tweet something. These cookies enable the website to 'know' that you are logged in to the website you are viewing, or to Google, Facebook or Twitter.

information cookies do not constitute a threat to your privacy.
