To safeguard and respect your privacy we operate our sites on a strict opt-in basis. This means that, to the extent that it is technically feasible and insofar as these trackers are not related to any strictly necessary purposes, we will block all non-essential trackers until you provide your consent to other trackers. These include all trackers used for marketing or analytical purposes as well as targeted advertising. Please note that accepting only necessary cookies may affect your browsing experience when compared with a user who accepted these functionalities.
If you do consent to the use of non-essential trackers, you can customize and withdraw your consent at any time (except concerning strictly necessary cookies) in our Cookies Preference Center.

Our content delivery network (CDN)
In addition to the cookies and other tracking technologies described above, our website works with a Content Delivery Network (CDN) that enables our website to load correctly and securely reach website visitors.
Our CDN is provided by Cloudflare, a company headquartered in the United States of America. You can see OneTrust Privacy Notice for more information about our vetted vendors. Because of the function of a CDN (secure delivery of website content to the right website visitor), Cloudflare’s systems collect payload data from HTTP requests, including website visitors’ IP addresses. Whereas payload is localised to the region where visitors come from, IP addresses are securely transferred to the Cloudflare servers in the United States, securely stored in volatile storage for a maximum of seven days, and then they are deleted.
Cloudflare uses the Anycast routing technology to enable its CDN functionalities without OneTrust needing to store or retain any payload data processed during an HTTP request and deliver content cached in the nearest Cloudflare’s Edge Server. We receive only the communication from Cloudflare about what kind of element is necessary to load (e.g. HTML elements like text, fonts, and layout) due to a user’s visit to our website.
