We also use performance Cookies to develop our platform, our online stores and other services we offer to you. These Cookies collect information which we use for reporting and analytics, such as how you use our website and how often you visit the website.
Development related Cookies can be either first party provided (our own Cookies which, e.g. estimate the visitor numbers) or third party analytics Cookies, such as Google Analytics and Facebook, who use the cookie data for analytics services and for example, help us track the user engagement on our websites. For more information on Google Analytics, visit Google’s information page.
We do also use certain social media plugins on our site which place Social Media and Content Cookies, for example, to enable you to “Like” something on Facebook, or play Instagram videos directly on our website, or link your cv to us directly from LinkedIn.
