Third party cookies

It is possible that third parties (such as social networks) place and use cookies on our website without our knowledge. Since we do not have control over these third parties, we cannot inform you about what cookies are placed and read by such third parties. We strongly advise you to read those conditions and to regularly check for amendments. We also draw your attention to the possibility to manage your advertising preferences with regard to cookies of advertisers and to the possibility of controlling what cookies may be saved on your device (see also below “Managing your cookie settings and deleting cookies”).

Managing your cookie settings and deleting cookies

As explained above, we only place cookies (including tracking cookies) after you have given us your consent for doing this.

You can also enable or disable (types of) cookies that are saved on your device via your browsing settings. For example, you can change the settings of your computer or mobile device in such a way that you do not receive cookies when visiting our website, or you can have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, delete individual cookies or delete all cookies. Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of advertising cookies. Please note that, if you choose to block or delete KCI’s cookies, it is possible that you can no longer use all the possibilities of our websites or app and that your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be degraded or restricted. Information on how to deactivate or delete cookies per browser can be found at (for example):
