Expires at the end of the session. This cookie saves user preferences and is only used to ensure the website functions properly: it enables users to download white papers, for example.

Non-functional cookies

Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to keep track of the number of visitors to our website and gain insight into their behaviour, such as the routes they choose. In order to do this, Google Analytics installs a number of cookies to collect data: __utma, __utmb, __utmc, and __utmz.

Google’s privacy policy (which may change regularly) explains what Google does with the personal information they may gather with cookies.

We use YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode. This mode installs a limited number of cookies. The difference between these cookies and those placed by Google Analytics is that these are not set up within this domain, but within YouTube’s domain. Cookies are only installed when you press play. The cookies used are: use_hitbox, visitor_info1_live, and PREF.

YouTube’s privacy policy (which may change regularly) explains what they do with the personal information they may process with these cookies.

Social media buttons
Various social media buttons are used on the website. These only link to the service in question. They do not install cookies.

Clicking behaviour and visit data
This enables us to perform statistical analyses of visit and clicking behaviour, which helps us optimize our website. We try to anonymize this data as much as possible while ensuring it remains suitable for our purposes. Josine Opstelten does not maintain this data; however, the tool we use (Google Analytics) does. Google’s privacy policy features information about what they do with your data.
