 Cookies placed by third parties

It is possible that third parties, such as social networks, themselves also place and use cookies without our knowledge. Since we do not control those third parties, we cannot tell you exactly what cookies are placed and read by those third parties. In the list above we have included as many references as possible to the conditions of those third parties. We advise you to read those conditions and to regularly check for amendments. We also draw your attention to the possibility to state your advertising preferences with regard to cookies of advertisers, and to the possibility of controlling what cookies may be saved on your device (see also ‘5. Cookie control‘).

See in particular in our Privacy Policy: ‘4. Source‘, ‘9. Retaining of data‘, ‘10. Data security‘ and ‘11. Your rights as a data subject
