Cookies are generally used by websites to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either strictly for the duration of your visit (using a “Session” cookie which is erased when you close your browser) or for repeat visits (using a “Permanent” cookie).
By using this website, you consent to us deploying cookies as described below. If you do not wish to accept cookies from our site or would like to stop permanent cookies being stored on your computer in the future, you can change the settings in your web browser to decline and / or delete cookies.

Google Tag Manager
This allows us to manage website tags via an interface. Tags are small elements of code that are used, for example, to measure traffic and visitor behaviour, to understand the effect of online advertising and social channels, to set up remarketing and orientation towards target groups, and to test and optimize websites. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and, as a result, no personal data is recorded. We list it here for transparency about the tools we use. If deactivation has been performed at a domain, page, event or 3rd party script level, this remains in place for all tracking tags if these are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
