What are cookies?

Like virtually all professional websites, this site uses cookies, small files downloaded to your computer to help optimise the user experience. This page explains what kind of information we collect by means of cookies, how we use this information and why, in some cases, we have to retain your data for longer periods of time. We will also explain how you can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer. The choice, of course, is yours, but one important thing to understand is that the functionality of this website is negatively impacted by refusing cookies. More information about the general characteristics of cookies can be found on Wikipedia and similar websites.

How we use cookies

We use cookies for different reasons – described in more detail below. In most cases, perhaps regrettably so, it is not possible to disable cookies without diminishing the overall functionality and usability of a website. For this reason, accepting cookies is generally the advisable option, as they may be necessary for functions or services you are currently using or may want to start using in the future.

Disabling cookies

You can prevent websites from transferring cookies to your computer or hand-held device by changing your browser settings. How to do this, is explained in your browser’s Help function. Again – be aware of the fact that disabling cookies will limit the functionality of this website and many others you will visit on the internet. Disabling cookies, in this overall sense, therefore, is generally not advisable.

What types of cookies does this site use?

This site offers functions for submitting requests for information, registering as an EADPP member or benefactor and signing up for EADPP events and blogs.

When you use a form, for instance on the EADPP website contact page, to send us questions or comments, cookies may be used to register your data for future correspondence.

Third-party cookies

On our website, we also use plugins and links to social media like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. The cookies we use, can also be used by these sites to optimise your profile and to supply additional information, on top of the information maintained by these sites for various purposes, as described in their respective privacy policies.

More information

We hope to have answered the questions you may have had on the use of cookies by our site. As mentioned above, in case of doubt the best course of action is generally to accept cookies, as they may be necessary for sites to provide you with the functions you are currently using or may want to start using in the future. If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact us.
