We will inform you about the cookies law on this page as well and clearly as we can.
What are cookies?
Cookies are very small text files which are stored on your hard drive or in your computer’s memory. They are linked to the web browser (Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) on the computer you use to visit a website.
What do cookies do?
Cookies can be used to save your personal preferences, like language settings or font sizes, to remember what products you put in your shopping basket at a webshop or let you log in to a website faster by remembering your user name and pre-entering it.
Cookies can also be used to build up a picture of your interests, such as by remembering what kind of articles you read or headings you visit. This helps publishers offer you relevant information, such as extra news articles on subjects in which you showed an interest before or ads which relate to your interests. So publishers can avoid burdening users with irrelevant advertising and ensure you don’t end up seeing the same ads or videos time and time again.
Do cookies tell publishers who I am?
No, definitely not! Cookies are held in your computer’s web browser, and are not linked to you personally: so they can only tell publishers what computers they are dealing with, not who is using them. Nor can cookies be used to get your personal data, like your e-mail or home address. So they have absolutely nothing to do with unwanted sales calls, spam or viruses.
We use other cookies for statistical purposes, like measuring how often visitors use our sites, what articles they like reading, what web browsers they use and what search terms they enter in their search engines to find our websites, so we can optimise and improve both their form and content. These cookies do not hold personal data, so they do not record who you are or what your e-mail address is.
Why should I allow cookies?
Cookies help VHLGenetics improve our websites constantly. We use the users’ statistics we gather to improve our users’ experience and the quality of the content of our sites.
VHLGenetics’ websites could not work without cookies, in a number of ways. We use them to let you log in, for instance. If you disable cookies, some parts of our websites won’t work well any longer.
How can I reject cookies, though?
You can opt to delete cookies from your web browser’s settings completely, or only allow cookies which are offered by the website you are visiting at the time, so third party cookies will be blocked.
Either way, these settings don’t then just apply to VHLGenetics’ websites, but to the Internet as a whole; and your settings will always be linked to your web browser. So you need to tell each browser and each computer you use what you want.
