We employ an industry-wide technology called "cookies". These are small pieces of data that are placed on your hard disk drive when you access the website or a certain part of the website. Cookies help us understand which parts of the website are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how much time they spend there.
Cookies may also be used to recognise your computer next time you visit a website. This might save you time (e.g. by ensuring that you do not have to register again) or help you by customising your internet settings.
Web beacons, also known as single pixel, clear gif technology or action tags, may be used on our site. This technology shows us which visitors clicked on key elements (such as links or graphics) on one of our site pages or emails. When you ask us to send you information on a promotion or a newsletter, we may use web beacons to establish which emails are actually opened. We use this information in order to optimise our site content and services. These web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies.
