For the functioning of these buttons social media companies such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Google, place cookies so that they are able to recognise you when you are logged in to that social network. They also use them to gather data about the page that you share. For further information about the data gathered by the social media companies we refer to the privacy statements of these companies. These may change regularly.


The cookies related to social media are not placed or read by us but by the social media provider in question. We have limited knowledge of and no control over these cookies.
