We explain how we use these cookies below.

2. What are cookies?
A cookie is a simple, small file containing personal data that is sent with the pages of callens.eu and saved by your browser to the hard disk of your computer or other device. The next time you visit our website, the browser returns the data in the cookie to our server or the server of the third party in question.
The term ‘cookie’ also encompasses scripts. These are sets of instructions carried out to ensure our website functions optimally.
Lastly, ‘cookie’ also encompasses web beacons, pixel tags and social media cookies. These are used to integrate various social networks into callens.eu. That’s because embedded third-party elements, meaning content stored at a third party, can be displayed on our website. The buttons on the webpages can also be used to share the contents of callens.eu through social networks. Facebook, Google+, WhatsApp, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Disqus and Twitter are examples of social networks.
Functional cookies are processed on the basis of legitimate interest, as they are needed to ensure callens.eu is secure and functions properly. Other cookies will not be used by callens.eu without your consent.

Functional cookies are essential for all parts of the website to work.

These cookies can be stored on your device without your consent.
Non-functional cookies are stored for statistical, social and commercial purposes. They do not have any technical support function and do not meet the criteria for exemption from the consent obligation. These cookies will only be stored on your device with your consent.

Online advertising is personalised with marketing cookies. Both callens.eu and third parties gain insight into how campaigns are performing from a profile created on the basis of what you click and where you go on the website.
These also include social media cookies. These cookies enable social network buttons to be integrated into the website. The buttons are controlled by a code originating from the social network in question. This is a handy way to like or pin web pages to promote them.
