Legislation on cookies

EP-Nuffic's websites use cookies. Below we will tell you why. We hope that you will decide to accept our cookies.

Visitors to EP-Nuffic's websites always remain anonymous. Cookies, like visitors, can never be linked directly to specific individuals.

EP-Nuffic uses functional cookies and cookies that it needs for web statistics and social media. This means we distinguish between three types of cookie:

  1. Functional cookies, the purpose of which is strictly limited to ensuring the effective operation of the website, for example by saving your preferences and allowing you to stay logged on (on request). No permission is required for this type of cookie.
  2. Analysis cookies, which provide insight into the ways in which visitors use our websites, which pages they visit most frequently and the terms they use when searching for information. The data collected using analysis cookies helps us improve our websites. We have anonymised IP tracking. We no longer need permission to use these Google Analytics cookies.
  3. Social media cookies, which enable you to share our website via social media and to email or print web pages. These cookies are not installed by EP-Nuffic, but by companies like AddThis, Facebook or Twitter. We need your permission to use social media cookies.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small and simple text file transmitted along with the pages of this website and stored by your browser (such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer) on the hard disk of your computer, tablet or smartphone. Cookies cannot damage your computer or files. It is also important to know that we only use cookies to identify computers, not individuals.

Disabling cookies

Most cookies have a “use-by” date. In other words, after a certain period of time they will automatically expire and stop registering your website visit. You may also opt to manually delete cookies before their use-by date. To do so, follow the instructions in your browser manual.
