A cookie is a small (text) file that, when visiting our Website and/or Flash applications, is sent along and stored on (the hard drive of) your device by your browser. A cookie contains data, so that you can be recognized as a visitor every time you visit the Website. That makes it possible to set up the website specifically for you and/or to facilitate the provision of our services.
With the help of these techniques and the stored information, we can, among other things:
The cookies we use will never result in unwanted calls, spam by e-mail or post. Your (e-mail) address or telephone number is never stored by means of the cookies we use. We would therefore like to stress that cookies we use are also safe for you to use.
We use different types of cookies:
Please note: Tracking cookies can be used to keep track of which pages you visit, in order to build a profile of your online surfing behaviour. This profile is also built on the basis of similar information obtained from your visits to other websites. The profile that is drawn up will not be linked to your name, address, e-mail address and other contact details as known to us.
We use Google Analytics as a statistics program to process information from analytical cookies. The statistics teach us how our Website is visited, what good and less good content of our Website is and how effective our Adwords ads on Google search result pages are. With this information we try to improve our Website. When we use Google Analytics, data is shared with Google. But don't worry; your IP address will be anonymized and no other personal data of yours will be processed and/or shared with Google.
Google uses this information to keep track of how our Website is used, to provide reports on the Websites to us and to provide its advertisers with information about the effectiveness of their campaigns. Google may provide the information shared with it to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or insofar as third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this. We have not allowed Google to use the obtained analytics information for other Google services.
The information shared with Google is stored by Google on servers in Ireland or the United States of America (USA). For Ireland, the GDPR is applicable and your privacy is thus guaranteed. For the USA, the GDPR requires companies to comply with certain conditions before personal data can be transferred to them. To comply with this requirement, Google uses Standard Contract Clauses for relevant data transfers. Google also strives for a legal basis for data transfers in accordance with applicable data protection laws. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of personal data and that the sharing of personal data with Google is currently permitted according to the GDPR.

The purpose of these buttons is to access our podcasts and promote ("like") or share our Website on those other websites and/or social media platforms. These buttons work by means of pieces of code with which, among other things, cookies that originate from those third parties are placed. Although we have carefully selected these websites and social media platforms, we cannot be held responsible for the use of your (personal) data by the organisations behind those websites and social media platforms. We advise you to consult the privacy and/or cookie statement of the relevant website or social media platform you visit.
