Cookies on EUNAT websites perform a large number of different functions and, among other things, allow you to navigate the website more efficiently, save your favorite settings and, in general, contribute to a better experience of the website.
European Union Directive 2009/136 / EC allows the storage of cookies on your device if they are necessary for the functioning of this site, while all other cookies require your consent.
If you set the language, font size, or specific version of the site (e.g., high-contrast mode), cookies are used to adjust the user interface. Once set up, you don't need to specify your preferences the next time you visit this site.
If you use parts of the site for access to which you need to register, we place an authentication cookie on your computer for this purpose. This allows you to go and return to those parts of the site without re-authentication.
EUNAT wants to get acquainted with the way visitors use its websites and uses network analytics services for that purpose. These services register the number of visitors and give us general information about their behavior, such as keywords entered in the search engine that direct the user to our site, the average time spent on the site and the number of pages the user views. For this purpose, we install the so-called first-party analytics cookie.
We can also use services like Google Analytics to track network statistics. In that case, Google puts the so-called third-party cookie. Such a cookie is also set when we use Google Maps.
All data collected through these cookies is stored and managed by EUNAT or its affiliates in the countries in which the company operates.
