What are cookies?

Cookies are files stored on your computer which enable us to track your computer’s use of CEWEP’s website.

Why does CEWEP use cookies?

Our website may use cookies as a tracking technique in order to collect technical information about your use for the purpose of improving and tailoring its content and making it more user-friendly.

We also use third-party tools such as Youtube embedded videos and a Twitter feed. While we took measures to reduce the cookies generated by these tools, they might still generate cookies to register anonymous statistical data for their own uses. For example, Youtube registers anonymous statistical data on how many times a video is displayed and what settings are used for playback. No sensitive data is collected unless you log in to your Google account, in that case your choices are linked with your account, for example if you click “like” on a video.
