Third-party cookies

We also use third-party services for sharing pages on social media platforms, and for embedding content like videos and publications to our pages. We also display links to third party websites.

These providers may use the info collected via these cookies in combination with information you have provided yourself by using their services and may track your online behavior with advertising purposes. Note that even if you don’t accept these marketing cookies, you will still be shown ads. It’s just that these ads will not be that relevant to you. We do not control or accept any liability for the installation of cookies and data storage by third parties.

Embedded content & third-party websites

If you share a page from our website on a social media platform using one of the share buttons, the social network may store a cookie on your computer.

We do not control or accept any liability for the installation of cookies and data storage by third parties. The providers of these cookies may use the data collected as explained in their privacy policies.
