“Cookies for the technical support of the website
Some cookies are generally used for the purpose of technical support of the website. We need to process certain automatically submitted information about you so that your browser can display our website and you can use it.
Google Tag Manager
We use Google Tag Manager on our website. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage web page tags through a single desktop interface. Google Tag Manager itself (which deploys the tags) is a cookie-free domain and does not collect any personal information. The Google Tag Manager service powers other tags, which in turn can collect data. Google Tag Manager does not have access to this data. Domain-level disabling or cookie disabling will also apply to all tracking tags deployed with Google Tag Manager.
It is common practice – in the event that you only visit and browse our site without actively using it (see below) – that your data is only stored for as long as necessary for the relevant purpose for which it was collected and then deleted. Therefore, if the data is no longer needed, we will delete it immediately, unless there are applicable time limits in relation to legal grounds to store it. In this case, the data will be blocked for purposes other than the legal purposes for which it was stored and will be deleted after the applicable retention period has expired.
When you are actively using our website (using the contact form), we may also store your personal data for a longer period of time in case we need to defend ourselves against potential legal claims. In this case, we will retain your personal data until the limitation period for any legal claims arising from the relationship with you has expired, which is usually between 12 and 36 months.
With regard to cookies, you have the option to delete them at any time by using the relevant features of your browser.
