Cookies

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most large websites do this too.

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. 


How do we use cookies?

We use automatically generated cookies provided by our webhost, Squarespace, to collect information about your geographic location, which browser you use, how many pages each visitor visits, and how long time each visitor spends on which pages.

We do not collect any other identifiable information than you state in the registration form. All other collected data is used for statistical purposes only.

Besides Squarespace, we do not share any information with any third parties.

By continuing to visit our site, you acknowledge that we collect your geographic location and which pages you view.


Control cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
