Cookie notice

In order to ensure proper and adequate control and functionality of the Website and to enable improved navigation within the Website, pgb-Europe's service providers make use of so-called "cookies" or "web beacons".

Cookies are small text files or pieces of information that are stored on a user's hard disk. Cookies are files that track, as it were, the previous visits to certain websites and the information associated with these visits. There are technical cookies (e.g. relating to language settings), session cookies (temporary cookies) and tracking cookies (cookies that relate to the behaviour of a website visitor who, in other words, follows them on the website and keeps track of this behaviour in order to provide the website visitor with the best possible user experience). Web beacons are electronic images that make it possible to count the number of visitors to a particular website and provide access to certain cookies.

pgb-Europe can use these tools to track information on its systems and to identify categories of users on the basis of data such as IP address, domain, browser type and pages visited. This information is communicated to pgb-Europe's webmasters who use this information to analyse the number of visitors to the various parts of the Website and to ensure that the Website functions as a useful and effective source of information. This applies, for example, to the registration of the choice of language. Google Analytics is also used.

The visitor can delete the use of cookies at any time via his or her browser settings and thus allow, disallow or partially allow the use of cookies. In the latter case, it is possible to set which website may place cookies. With all other websites, the placing of cookies is then in principle prohibited.

Neither the cookies nor the web beacons used on the Website collect the visitor's name or e-mail address. Under certain circumstances, however, it is possible that visitors will not be able to access certain parts of the Website if their web browser is set in such a way that they refuse cookies.
