Web beacons are transparent images which may be included in e-mails sent to you.

Similar technologies are technologies that store information in your web browser or on your device in a similar way as cookies and web beacons.  

Except for cookies used for the purposes specified in 3.1 of this notice, we ask your consent before placing cookies on your device.

Cookies are used on our website for the following purposes as set out below.

We use cookies to collect visitor statistics in order to evaluate and follow up on how our web­site is used.

  • For this purpose, we will therefore e.g. collect information about your browser and device, how often you visit the website (including first and last visit), the duration of the visit and information on which website you came from prior to the visit or our website (including if any search engine and specific search term was used or if a link was used).
