What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. These text files can be read by these websites and help to identify you when you return to a website. Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer when you have gone offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.
If you choose to use the Website without blocking or disabling cookies or opting out of other technologies, you will indicate your consent to our use of these cookies and other technologies and to our use (in accordance with this policy) of any personal information that we collect using these technologies. If you do not consent to the use of these technologies, please be sure to block or disable them using your browser settings, the opt-out links identified in this policy, or the settings within our mobile apps.
We have integrated the Twitter widget (“Widget”) of the company Twitter Inc. (“Twitter”) on our Website. When accessing a website where the Widget is placed, automatically a connection is made to the servers of Twitter, which are located in the United States.
When you visit our Website you automatically load the Widget for display, and Twitter receives certain information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, and the address of the website where the Widget is integrated, and places a cookie that recognizes your browser (“Widget Data”). In connection with the cookie, Twitter can theoretically recognize which pages you have visited across various websites, provided that the Widget has been implemented there. On Twitter’s own account, Twitter uses the data to tailor content for you based on your visits to third-party websites, and may give suggestions for people to follow on Twitter, if you have a Twitter account.
According to Twitter, Twitter starts the process of deleting or aggregating Widget Data after a maximum of 10 days and is usually instantaneous but in some cases may take up to a week. We have no direct influence on which data Twitter collects, processes and uses when you visit our Website.
