When you visit our website again your browser will send the information stored in the cookies to our website which can, for example, make navigation easier because previously saved preferences have been applied. Cookies are not viruses and cannot install malicious software on your computer. They are simply short text files that are exchanged between the web server and browser. Our website uses the following types of cookies:

  • Transiente Cookies (session cookies)
    These cookies are only stored for the duration of a browser session, i.e. for the period during which you are using your browser. They store a so-called session ID, which is used to assign various requests to a common session. This allows the webpage to recognise your computer when you return. As soon as you close the browser, the session cookies are automatically deleted.
  • Persistent Cookies
    These cookies only differ from the transient cookies in that they are not automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies will only be deleted after a pre-set period of time has elapsed. These cookies can also be deleted manually at any time in your browser’s settings.

Generally, you can use your browser’s settings to either disable cookies altogether, or to allow the setting of only some cookies. Making use of this option may however result in limited functionality of our website.

When you contact us by email, whether it is to request an appointment or for any other enquiry, the data provided by you (email address, name, telephone number) will be stored so that we are able to answer your questions. The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required or once the statutory retention requirements have been met. The data will not be made available to any third parties.
