Cookie policy


This Cookie Policy was last updated on 4 June 2018.

When browsing, you should be aware that the website uses cookies. Nowadays cookie technology is widespread and almost every website makes use of it.

1. Cookies

A cookie is a small text file communicated by the website to your device (a computer, tablet or mobile phone) through your browser. When you first visit a website, the cookie registers specific Internet settings in your browser’s files. Next time you return to the website from the same device, the browser refers to this cookie and can then “tell” the website that you have already visited it before. This is useful for a variety of reasons and depends on the type of the cookie. You can learn more about cookies on this website.

2. Google Analytics (with anonymised IP)

The website uses Google Analytics, a popular web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics sends cookies to your device in order to analyse the way you interact with the website. The cookies generate traffic data (including your IP address, in an anonymised format, in compliance with EU regulations) that is stored on Google servers in the United States. Google then provides me with non-personally identifiable, systemised information that helps me to keep a record of the number of visitors and to evaluate their activity on the website. This includes which pages were viewed, the length of stay, where visitors came to the website from, the type of device and browser used, language preferences, etc. This helps me improve the website and the overall user experience.

The above information reaches me completely anonymised and I see it only as statistics. These statistics about the website are kept by Google for fourteen months (this is the minimum retention period I can set up), and then they are automatically deleted on a monthly basis.

You can read in detail about Google Analytics terms of service here and Google Analytics data privacy policy here. Concerning IP anonymization, please refer to this page. Google’s compliance with data protection requirements is outlined here.

Information generated by Google Analytics activity reports is used only by the owner of this website. I engage not to disclose it to third parties, including for marketing or advertisement purposes.

3. Managing cookies

By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

At the same time, controlling cookies is possible. You can change the way your web browser manages them in general, including their complete blocking or deletion, by selecting the appropriate settings.

Most browsers allow for the possibility to either accept or reject all cookies, accept only certain types of cookies, or warn you each time a website requests to place a cookie. You can also delete cookies already stored on your device. Please refer to your browser’s Help files to learn how to do this. Please note that if you block the cookies, you might not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can prevent data collection and processing through Google Analytics cookies (including your IP address) by downloading and installing this browser plugin.
