What is a (non-edible) cookie?
It’s a small data file saved on your device. Contrary to an edible cookie, you can be sure it doesn’t contain harmful viruses - or programs for that matter.
Why does the website have cookies if you can’t eat them?
We use them to make sure that the website functions properly, but even more so to make your visit nice and smooth by showing you relevant content. Our smart digital insights consultants and developers also use the knowledge we gather from cookies to continuously optimise the site.

When you visit our site, we save the following cookies on your device:

- ARRAffinity (“Application Request Routing” provided by Microsoft) to connect an active session with a specific server. In case the user accesses a new server, this will be considered a new session, and data will not be transferred.

How long do we save cookies?
As a wise developer once said: It depends…
Session cookies are only saved during an active browser session, but other cookies may be saved for longer. The duration will depend on the last date of your visit, but when the cookies expire they will automatically be deleted from your device.
Rejecting or deleting cookies
If you get tired of cookies, you can actually reject or delete them in your browser settings. Depending on your device and browser, there are different ways to do this. Remember, Google is your friend and can help you find many excellent guides on the subject. Just be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies can impact your use of the website and some functions might not work as intended if you do so.
Wow, all that talking about cookies really made us hungry! We’ll leave you here, but should you have any questions or comments related to this policy, you can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
