What cookies do we use?
IKC uses different cookies. Below is an explanation of the cookies we use and for what purposes we use them.
Functional or necessary cookies
Functional or necessary cookies help the IKC Websites to function properly. Among other things, these anonymous cookies ensure that:
- Your preferences, such as language, location and the desired number of search results to be displayed are stored.
- Your browser settings are stored so that you can view the IKC Websites optimally on your screen.
No consent is required for the use of these cookies. It is therefore not possible to unsubscribe from these cookies.
Social media cookies
The site includes buttons to promote or share pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. These buttons are pieces of code from the social media itself, and use a cookie. This cookie remembers that you are logged in so that you do not have to log into the social platform every time you want to share something. To see what they do with the personal data they receive with this code, you can view the privacy statements of the various social media (which may change regularly).
With our goal to improve the user experience on our website, we measure visitor behaviour with tools such as Google Analytics, Hotjar and Semrush. In addition, this information can be used for advertising purposes.
It is possible that you have visited our website through our Google AdWords advertisements. In order to be able to measure the effect of these advertisements properly, we place conversion scripts on buttons and thank you pages of our forms. These scripts place a cookie so that we can see that our visitors come from AdWords.
