Types of cookies

We distinguish between functional and non-functional cookies. We always place functional cookies. These are necessary for the website to work properly. Non-functional cookies process personal data outside your field of vision. These mainly enable us to improve our services. This allows us, for example, to measure how often our website is used and what information visitors are looking for. We always ask for your permission to request non-functional cookies.

We use the following non-functional cookies.

Analytical cookies

With analytical cookies we collect statistics about the use of the website by the users. By measuring website usage, the website can be improved for the benefit of the users.

The analytical cookies that we use [at Online Meetings] are placed by Google in order to be able to use the Google analytics service. Google can provide the collected data to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or insofar as third parties process the data on behalf of Google. We have not allowed Google to use the data obtained through our websites for other Google services.

Google collects data that is anonymised as much as possible.

Among other things, the following data is stored:

• the IP address, which is made anonymous;

• technical characteristics, such as the browser you use;

• from which page you came to the website.

Tracking cookies

Based on the information about your internet visits, we can narrow down your preferences and interests. This then allows us to make personal offers for you.
