Social media cookies

Our website contains buttons you can use to share our messages or web pages on social media. These enable you to 'like' things via Facebook or YouTube, or send a tweet using Twitter. These buttons work using small pieces of code that come from the social media platforms themselves. Cookies are placed via this code. We play no role in this. In their own Privacy Statements, the social media platforms state what they do with your data via the cookies.

We request a tracking cookie as soon as you visit our website. The resulting profile is not linked to your name, address, email address, etc.; it is only used to match advertisements to your profile to ensure that they are as relevant to you as possible. These cookies are only placed with your permission. 



We ask your permission before placing tracking cookies. If you do not want us to place these cookies on your computer, telephone or tablet, you can adjust your browser preferences.
